Celebrating 100 and Then Some Fans Giveaway

It is such a great feeling to be involved in a community with others who have the same passion as I do.
It's a sisterhood and a bond that nobody can understand, unless you are involved with it.

There are so many amazing friends that I have met in the polish world and I consider them to be life long friends.
It's funny, I was just talking to one of my polish buddies the other day, and I told her that internet friends are way cooler then real life friends.
Atleast for me they are.
I am never judged and always supported.

In 2007, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  Life for me has been extremely difficult as I was left with daily chronic headaches.
It has been very debilitating, to say the least.
Last week, I received bad news on my yearly MRI.  It seems that the gland is now 12x12mm(the size of a large grape) and is growing.
Right now, there is much uncertainty regarding my health.
One would think that in a time of need, your friends and family would be there for you through such a difficult time.

It's just the opposite.  Truth be told, many walked away.
I've only really gotten into nail polish a year or so ago.
It has now become a passion of mine as well as so many others.
At the end of the day, I have so many of you to thank for getting me through each day as it is a struggle to do it alone.
Ya'll are probably wondering why I am telling my life story in a polish blog and the answer is simple.

Because I owe you gals so much thanks for getting me this far.  Even though we never met and may never meet, you will always hold a special place in my heart and I appreciate your friendships.

*enough of the sappiness*

Ok, now on to the giveaway.  I am celebrating 100 and then some fans!  Go me!  I never thought in a million years that anybody would care what I had to say, but, I guess you do.
Thank you one and all ♥

The bummer is, this is for USA only as I am disabled(and I just explained why up above) and don't have the means to ship internationally.
The giveaway will run now until Feb. 11th

One lucky FOLLOWER will win the following and have 48 hours to contact me or else I will draw another name.

Good luck & Be Well.

Dani~Congrats on your 100+ followers! My heart goes out to you re:your brain tumor. My daughter had a JPA brain tumor removed 5 years ago, so we have seen the pain and struggle that goes along with brain surgery and recovery. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
