Polished Indulgence is turning 1! [GIVEAWAY!]

Can you believe it? I know I can't! It only seems like a few weeks ago when we claimed our tiny bit of the interwebs to write about our burgeoning passion for all things nail polish (among other things, of course). Back then, we thought, okay, I thought it would only be a phase that would last a few months, tops. Fast forward some 365 days later and we're still going strong! Better yet, we've gotten to know so many lovely people from all walks of life that are brought together by a common love for nail polish. We've been lucky enough that we can count you as friends (and real life friends, even!). Apart from that, we've learned a whole bunch of stuff (hey, you never really stop learning) and stretched our creativity muscles (excuse the iffy metaphor) in a bid to keep up with our Nail Art Wednesday promise. All in all, it's been a great year where we have so much to be thankful for, most especially for all you dear readers. Every comment, weird search words that make us giggle, Facebook like, Twitter follow, pin on Pinterest and GFC/Bloglovin'/Networked Blogs/RSS subscription is cherished. Truthfully, just knowing someone out there is actually reading the posts that we've put a lot of thought and effort into writing is enough to make our day. So, in essence, YOU make our day. And in a bid to express our gratitude, we're having a giveaway! (Woot!)


We're calling this the Dupe Giveaway. Let me explain why: Polished Indulgence started under the premise that indulgence and luxury doesn't have to come with a high price tag. If you can get the same look for a lower price, why not? If a cheaper alternative outperforms a luxury brand, isn't that all the better for our wallets? We've tried to put a premium on value vs. price so in the same vein, we'd like our first blog anniversary giveaway to promote that same principle. We're not made of money ourselves (none of these items are sponsored), so we've rounded up a host of little luxuries to aid your indulging:

And as infomercials would say: But WAIT, there's MORE! As an additional thank you to my fellow Canadians, we've decided to up your chances by adding another set of prizes just for you!

Once again, thank you for sticking it out with us. We hope to see you around in the comments, on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest. We cannot stress this enough: YOU ARE AWESOME.

  49. I've been on the web now for almost three today, and after I happened upon blogger.com on http://polishedindulgence.blogspot.com/, I was very happy to.. Honestly, I think that if more bloggers and siteowners created content like yours, the web would be even more useful than it already is.

    Feel free to visit my homepage :: frondescence
