Giveaway: KOH and Co.


This giveaway is closed. Thank you.

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. This isn’t supposed to happen now.

I told you the other day the story about KOH Neon Roze. Well, I do have one final bit to share about this nail polish. Just before summer officially started this year, KOH kindly sent me a bottle of nail polish of a random colour to try. It was quite bizarre that out of the 120++ colours that KOH had in its collection, I was sent Neon Roze, which I had already purchased.

So, I decided that this Neon Roze should be given to one lucky reader. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I started buying nail polishes from local stores to add to the prize. I then decided to purchase a bottle of KOH and so, one prize package became two. I had many plans on Witoxicity for the summer, including this giveaway.

Then suddenly, in July, my father passed away and things came to almost a standstill. I must thank all of you who very kindly left messages of condolence during my bereavement.

And so, here we are, almost four months on. Even Etos (one of the brands found in the prizes) had changed its packaging during that time! KOH and Co. are patiently waiting for their new owners. So, how would you like to be one of them?



Prize Package 1 – Bright
This package consists of mainly pinks (because I know some of you lurve pinks) and the lighter and brighter shades and a matt top coat.

Clockwise starting from KOH

• KOH Neon Roze
• HEMA Longlasting Nailpolish No. 83
• HEMA Neon Nailpolish No. 72
• Etos Effect Nails No. 009
• Etos Effect Nails No. 024
• HEMA Longlasting Nailpolish No. 91
• HEMA Top Coat Matt
• Essence Nail Art Stampy Design Plate 01 Have Fun! (right)


Prize Package 2 – Dark
This package is made up of mainly dark and broody shades. From the brand KOH, I chose Rain Forest, which will always have a special meaning to me. Rain Forest marked my return to painted nails after a very long hiatus and it was also my very first KOH. So, I hope whoever wins it, will also get to enjoy Rain Forest as much as I have.

Clockwise starting from KOH

• KOH Rain Forest
• Essence Multi Dimension - Dress To Party
• HEMA Nailpolish No. 05
• Etos Effect Nails No. 018
• Etos Quickydry Nailpolish No. 007
• HEMA Nailpolish No. 06
• Etos Effect Nails No. 013
• Etos Longlasting Nailpolish No. 023
• Essence Nail Art Stampy Design Plate 02 Style It Up! (right)


2 x Consolation Prize
Each consolation prize winner will receive two nail polishes from HEMA.



Here is the information:

1. Open worldwide.

2. Open to all followers of Witoxicity.
You may follow through RSS feeds, Bloglovin, through your Google/Twitter accounts (on Google Friend Connect) or you could be a regular visitor to this site. No cheats, please. Kindly provide me with your name.

3. For one basic entry, please choose which prize package you would like to win: Bright or Dark.

4. Optional: Feature this giveaway on your blog – two additional entries.
Feel free to use the first image above.

5. Optional: Tweet about this giveaway – two additional entries.

6. Please submit your entries by filling up the form found on the sidebar on the right by latest Friday 26th November 2010 at 11.59pm (Central European Time). Of course, you may leave comments under this post, but these comments will not be deemed as entries.

Please fill up the form only once.

7. Here's how the winners will be chosen:

The two main prizes
Entries will be divided into two groups according to the choice made (Bright or Dark). One random winner will be picked from each group.

The consolation prizes
After the selection of the main prize winners, the rest of the entries will be pooled together and two random winners will be picked.

The winners will be drawn using the Aunty Number Generator (it’s my aunt’s turn this time!). I will have the list of entries arranged either in chronological order or in reverse chronological order. My dearest Aunty Magdalene, who will not know how I’ve arranged the entries, will pass me her choice of numbers.

8. The results will be announced on Sunday, 28th November 2010, which happens to be Aunty Magdalene’s birthday! I will contact the four winners by email. If I don’t hear back from a particular winner within 72 hours, an alternative winner will be chosen.

9. Every care will be taken in sending out the packages but none of the brands featured nor I will be held responsible in the event that a package goes missing in transit or arrives damaged.

10. All the prizes are new items, unused and unswatched. With the exception of KOH Neon Roze, all the items were my own purchases.

I wish you luck!

Some of the polishes have been featured here previously. They are:

KOH Rain Forest
KOH Rain Forest with a matt top coat
Etos Effect Nails No. 24
KOH Neon Roze

Nail art stamping using the Essence image plates can be found here.

As I bought double of a few of the polishes in the prizes (oh, but I am weak!), I will be featuring some of them here soon.

I love giveaways
I'm very sure there will be some extremely happy people when you announce the winners! I'm not entering because I have easy access to all of those and want to give other people (especially your many international readers) the chance to win some of your great goodies. Good luck with the giveaway! :-)

@PolishSis
Thank you for your good wishes, Inge. I totally understand your point of view, but of course, everyone, regardless of country, is most welcome to take part. :)

@Helena
Never say never, Helena. You just never know what numbers the Aunty Number Generator will pick! Thank you for participating. Good luck with your entry! :)

@charlieFlii
Thank you very much, my dear. I really appreciate it. :)

@Tsiisfamke
Hallo! Bedankt voor je deelname en wensen. :)

Seraphine said...

Ooh, I'd love to win Rain Forest! I fell in love with it when you swatched it.

The winners will indeed be very happy!

Witoxicity said...

@Seraphine
Hi Seraphine! Rain Forest is a strangely beautiful shade, and that's coming from someone who's not exactly crazy about the colour green! I hope you've already submitted your entry for the giveaway. Good luck! :)

jv said...

I'm so very sorry about your loss. I lost my father 4 years ago- it's not an easy thing to go through. I may be a silly one but where is the entry form? x jeanie

Witoxicity said...

@jv
Thank you, Jeanie. I'm so sorry about your father. No, it's not easy, but we try to move on.

The entry form is on the sidebar on the righthand side of the website. Not silly! The form was just being mischievous and playing hide-and-seek with you. Ha ha!

great giveaway,thank you for the oportunity to participate,i love this nailpolishes but i cant find them on my country so i hope i can win.kisses

Witoxicity said...

@albastrikmik
You're welcome! Thank you for participating! KOH, Etos and HEMA are Dutch brands. While KOH is available in some other countries, it is quite unlikely that the other two brands are (with the exception of Belgium, maybe). Anyway, good luck with your entry! :)

Cynthia Z said...

Yay....very nice giveaway! Guess what I picked...oh right you'll know anyways ;). Seeing all those gorgeous colors I feel like heading over to Inglot to buy some nail polishes :D.
Btw, I really like the form thing u do. In my last giveaway I searched n searched for a site that does that, but couldn't find..I felt like a dinkus lol

♥xx♥

*MCF* said...

Great giveaway! I didn't knew this brand...I already posted an entry for this giveaway on my blog.

Witoxicity said...

@Cynthia
Ha ha, yes, we all know which colour you have a soft spot for. Try to restrain yourself when you do go to Inglot. We ladies, we spend too much on nail polishes! That form thing - a lot of trial and error was involved! :P

Witoxicity said...

@*MCF*
Thank you for participating and good luck with your entry! :)

@Prings Palo
Hi! Thank you for taking the time to share with me your story. 28 or 68, it's never too late to start polishing your nails (or just makeup in general - I myself started with makeup very late). I see that you're quite addicted to polishes now. Heh heh, welcome to this addictive world of colourful lacquers! :D

Thanks for taking part in the giveaway. Good luck with your entry! :)
