Rach's 2nd ROYGBIV Holiday Giveaway

Yuuuuuuuuuuup, it's back. I know. I just had a giveaway, but that one was kind of ... unplanned? But I had so much fun running this last year that I knew I wanted to do it again.

Here are the polishes you get to take home:



(L-R)
Red: Essie Leading Lady
Orange: Orly Flicker
Yellow (gold): Zoya Ziv
Green: Piggy Polish Jingle, Belle
Blue: China Glaze Blue Bells Ring
Indigo: OPI Tomorrow Never Dies
Violet: Color Club Glitter Wonderland

And some other goodies ...

  • one hand-knit scarf using Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in ... well, it's either Caffe or Espresso (I threw the label away. DERP.)
  • one Dolfin chocolate bar in my favorite masala flavor. You know, to give you a break from all the peppermint and gingerbread
  • one pack of my favorite TRIM nail sticks
  • assorted holiday cards in case you're late for this year (or need some for next year)
  • assorted teas
  • (not pictured) two sheets of white felt for polish removal

... and one really awesome prize that I don't have a picture of because YOU get to choose it. YES.

Remember the holiday movies I blogged about last year? This year, my ROYGBIV Holiday winner will win ONE of those movies on DVD. You must choose one movie from this list:



  1. "While You Were Sleeping" (1995, dir. Jon Turteltaub)

  4. "Eastern Promises" (2007, dir. David Cronenberg)
  5. "About a Boy" (2002, dirs. Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz)
  6. "In Bruges" (2008, dir. Martin McDonagh)
  7. "Die Hard" (1988, dir. John McTiernan)

  1. You must be a U.S. resident and public GFC follower. 
  2. This giveaway is open until Saturday, Dec. 15 at 11:59 p.m. EST. I will announce the randomly-selected winner on Sunday, Dec. 16. The winner will have 24 hours to contact me to claim the prize; a new winner will be selected if that person does not e-mail me.

  1. For my money, Die Hard is the greatest Christmas movie of all time. Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber? Changed. My. Life. ^_^

    This is such an amazingly generous giveaway, Rach! Can't enter, but I'm totally wowed.

  4. OOh - I have not seen Eastern Promises and want to! I think About A Boy was really a good movie that I totally missed hearing anything about when it was out (not unusual as I don't have a movie theater where I live - have to drive 30+ miles up the coast to get to one)...nice 'gift' away! I so want Ziv - did not order it when I did a Zoya order - thought I would not like it and now I am loving it in every photo I see!!! It's a gotta have for me I think...chi tea - wonderful...you put some fun thought into this one.

  9. How sad is it that I have not seen ANY of those movies?

    No, that's a lie, I saw About a Boy. I think. I definitely read the book.

    My favorite holiday movie is anything with the Muppets.

  10. I have recently rediscovered my love for Guillaume Canet, so I think I will have to watch Joyeux Noel. I only have one movie I watch every year (Love, Actually) so there is room to watch another.
