Guessing Game Winners!!!

It's time to announce the winners of my guessing game / mini giveaway. But at first, the answer to the question you've all been pondering on your sleepless nights since the launch of this guessing game...
The correct answer was 180. If you don't believe me, just count from the pic below!
These were only the polishes I had worn until then. I made the decision only to swatchsicle polishes as I use them, so I can keep track of my untrieds. As I've been working hard using polishes from my untrieds, I'd say I own about 200 swatchsicles at the moment. Oops... When did that happen...?
As I stated in the terms and conditions of the guessing game, the "closest guess" prize would only be given if the closest guess was no more than 10 percent away from the correct answer. Thus the scale of acceptable guesses ranges from 162 to 198. And there was only one guess that made it there. Congratulations to Jonochi, with her guess of 167 polishes!! These stickers, neon pink crackle and deco stuff go to her.
I picked the winner for the GFC followers prize with random.org, and it picked Iroshi as the winner! Congrats (and these neon polishes) to you!
 Thanks to all who participated! And thank you for your encouraging comments! They mean a lot to me! By the way, I got asked, what's the blue glitter polish in the foreground in one of the pics of my swatchsicles. (These kinds of questions don't bother me at_all!) It's Revlon Blue Mosaic, and I believe I did two coats for this.
I can tell you all I'm still fascinated with my swatchsicles, and I can't keep my hands off them when I'm at my desk. If you have the time and need some polish therapy, go for it! Just make sure you've got a glue that attaches well and does not crinkle the plastic. I ended up using clear superglue, after all.


  1. Awesome collection you have! I love this idea, but I am just way too lazy myself! xD

    Also, congrats Iroshi!

    1. Thanks! And congrats to you once again! I refuse to think how much money I've put on nail polish... although my collection is not BIG by any means.. :)

    2. Mine certainly rivals or surpasses all of the salons I pass.
      I have a very hard time putting an amount on it as well. All I can say to myself is, "At least it's an ART hobby!!"

    3. I, too, see this definitely as an art hobby! And, what's totally cool, we don't have masses of my ugly paintings or failed sculptures hanging around our house, because nail art is all gone with the acetone after a few day's wear. :)

    4. As long as I get a picture, I'm content.

      I gave you a little shoutout on my blog as a thanks, so check that out!

  2. These look like candy! I just wanna eat them. So fun and pretty to look at!
