The Mysteriously Multiplying Bad Fairy Giveaway!!

I really loved Orly's Cosmic FX collection, so you can bet your sweet buttons that I hurried myself right over to the MAC counter this morning to pick up the one polish in their new collection that doesn't have an Orly dupe.

Bad Fairy.  Ooooo, you are so lovely!

Excuse the application, I was just too excited!  Not only is it beautiful, duochrome-y, foil-y goodness, but it's my first MAC polish, too.  Hurrah!

This is actually three slick coats of Bad Fairy over my manicure of Maybelline's Gray-t Glamour from yesterday.  (Like I said, a bit over excited.)  Though two may do the job, I would suggest three.  It gives the color more depth.  I don't think that my camera is marvelous at picking up on the subtle details in polish, but the polish can appear magenta, golden orange... I've even seen it turn a vibrant rust color!

Ahh, so gorgeous!  MAC classifies this as a pearl, though?  Err... what?
Onto the good stuff!!!
The Mysteriously Multiplying Bad Fairy Giveaway!!!

I really appreciate my lovely readers, and I want to be able to give back somehow.  Reading your blogs always makes me happy, and knowing that some of you read mine makes my day!  And what better way to show it than some free stuff, right? :)  So I have one brand new bottle of MAC's Bad Fairy for you!


I currently have 25 lovely followers.  If that number jumps to 75 before the giveaway closes, more polishes will be added to the winner's stash!  If the number of followers rises to over 100, additional goodies will be added! :D

You must be a follower of Persistently Polished.  I don't mind if you're a newbie to my blog or if you've been around since the beginning, but I will check follower status of entrants.  Make all of your available entries in one comment, or I will likely miss any additional entries you've made!

How do you get entries?
-- Leave a comment on this entry with your name and email address. (1 entry)
-- Add Persistently Polished to your blog roll and provide me with a link. (1 entry)
-- Post about my giveaway on your blog and provide me with a link. (2 entries)
-- Tweet about my giveaway and provide me with a link. (2 entries)

You could have a total of six entries for my giveaway!

The Mysteriously Multiplying Bad Fairy Giveaway will come to a close on October 20th at 11:59 PM EST.  Any entries after will not be counted.  The entries will be numbered and the winner will be chosen using The winner will be announced shortly thereafter, and will receive an email from me.  If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, I will choose a new winner.

International entries welcome!

(This is my first giveaway.  If you see something that I may have missed or neglected to mention, or have questions or comments, please please please email me at or leave a note in the comments section, and I will get back to you.)

  14. Hi there! New subbie here! I like how descriptive you are (you had me cracking up @holy hufflepuff)! Q: how in the world does ur polish dry while u sleep and u not wake up with a smudged mess?? Do tell. Oh and I'd like to enter the giveaway, Wendy R.

  15. Happy to enter you, Wendy. :) And I'm glad I can make you laugh! Sometimes I wonder about the dorky stuff I write.

    I think I'm pretty lucky in that I fall asleep quickly and I don't tend to move a whole lot in the night. I also try to paint thin coats and then put on a quick dry top coat. China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat, Rush 60 Second High Speed Top Coat, and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat have all worked exceedingly well for me.

    I'm a little gentle on my hands pulling my blankets up, but then I just sleep with them on top of the covers. By the time my hands get cold in the night and I pull them under the covers in my sleep, they must already be dry. :) I do the same thing when I paint my toes. I always seem to ruin them if I paint them during the day, even if I give them lots of time to dry!
