essie spring giveaway!


note: this giveaway is now closed, and entries are no longer being accepted. keep checking back for the next giveaway!



one of my small indulgences is painting my fingernails and toenails. it's an inexpensive way to add a bit of color to an outfit, pull together a polished look, or just feel completely girly and fun. i have been a fan of essie polish for quite a long time. i can always find exactly the shade i am looking for, and i don't have to settle for something with tons of shimmer. sparkle and iridescence has its place {sometimes on my toes}, but i am really more of a matte polish girl. i tend toward colors without shimmer, and i can always find something on point with essie.

so in honor of warm spring weather & unabashed girliness, i am very excited to announce the first ever hiking in stilettos giveaway!
i am giving away three of my favorite essie polishes from the new spring colors:

van d'go {a pale nude/pink}, lilacism {a fun pastel purple}, and watermelon {a punchy pink, not a new color, but a favorite of mine!}


here are the rules:
{i know, i hate rules too}

1. you must be a follower of hiking in stilettos
2. leave a comment below stating that you are a follower & tell me about your favorite spring/summer pastime!
3. for additional entries, tweet or blog about the giveaway and leave a separate comment.


the giveaway will be open until sunday, april 11th friday, april 16th, and i will announce the winner the following saturday. happy spring, my lovelies!

xoxo

Girl... you know I'm a follower :-) And this is such a fun giveaway - and is perfect for Spring!

My favorite spring/summer pastime is spending time out on the lake. The Hubs & I could just drift around for hours, Max the dog in tow. It makes for such a lovely day & I'm looking forward to the first boat ride of Spring in the next few weeks, yea!

I am so excited by this giveaway!! Of course I follow your blog, girl. I've been thinking about warm weather wardrobing, and for me, that always includes fun colors for my toes.

I'm a loyal follower of Hiking in Stilettos (I adore your pictures!) and my heart skipped a beat when I saw this giveaway: I've been on a search for for a few weeks looking for a lilac, lavender, light purple nail polish shade! OPI hasn't satisfied me yet and I've been searching to locate an Essie retailer! All 3 shades are perfect for spring/summer!
My favorite spring/summer pastime involves the following: iced tea, hot temps but with a light breeze, a swinging bench on my porch at home, flowers in bloom, my puppies at my feet and friends and family sitting all together. The grill is on, and I've husked some corn on the cob and we have strawberry shortcake prepped for dessert.

Lounging outside at dusk in the spring & summer is absolute perfection : )

I am a follower (well- WE are at MonkeySaidBear)

Well, things like pretty nail polish are my favorite things about Spring.... meaning the small things. I"m not sure i can rank them but here's one... there are the most amazing full dogwood trees in "Old Louisville" and they drop their petals and it never fails to make me feel that i'm caught up in the most glorious of fairy tales. How lucky are we that we can be transported just like that? by stepping on to a sidewalk.

Also I tweeted....

I just discovered your blog today & became a follower! Erin mentioned you in a tweet, and I followed a link from your Twitter page here! I love everything I see!

My favorite thing about summer is having bare legs and bare feet! I love doing anything and everything outside and I love feeling the sun and the breeze on bare skin. And I never pass up the chance to have a beer on a patio in the evening. Just writing this is making me want to go outside!

Katy said...

Hi! I'm a follower!

My favorite Spring pastime has to be taking my dog out to the dog park and being able to stay a bit later becuase the sun stays out longer!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!! :)

Yay for an extension on this! :) I am most certainly a follower of your blog. Spring, I guess is all about sitting on the grass, enjoying the outdoors, maybe with a good book, or even better, a group of friends. x

I'm afraid I'm not very adventurous when it comes to filling my sundrenched days, I usually spend them somewhere in a flowerfield - reading an exciting novel and drawing my surroundings.

My favorite spring time activity is spending time in the yard - hanging laundry on the line, gardening, playing with the baby and dog. It's wonderful - like waking up from a long winter!

My favorite pasttime in the spring/summer are the "tankations" my boyfriend and I take on the weekends. Road trips that take a tank of gas or less, round trip. We've found lots of places that we never would have known of otherwise :)

I'm a follower. I love to go to the Admiral Twin Drive-In to watch movies with my friends and my dog. $7 gets you two movies and you can bring your own food and beer! Can't be beat. They filmed part of The Outsiders at this drive-in and they'll be showing the movie at the end of this month.
Thanks for all of the hard work that goes into your lovely blog!

The weather has just started to get nice and I've already found myself making up excuses to be outside. I love to walk around the city and find new places I haven't been. My husband and I go hiking too. In fact, I hike a lot better with pretty painted toes! :D

I only just didn't make it in time but no worries, I wanted to follow you anyhow.

My favourite summer past time would be going to the park where I live near and taking out a red gingham blanket where I can lay all my books to read there for the whole day in the sun. Wouldn't that be lovely? Eating jam sandwiches too ofcourse... xxxx

It sounds cliche, but I love long walks on summer evenings. It is such a serene time of night.
