A Problem & A Question

Hey everyone =)
As you already know, I did two giveaways up to date and my blog has gained many followers during those times. First of all I want to thank everyone who thinks I'm worth watching. It means so much to me! Then I wanted to go through every single follower and see if they have a blog, but things kinda got out of hand. I couldn't find time to go through about 500 people, and the blog names started to confuse me after some point, and I was unsure if I was following them or not. So I'm asking you, my dear followers: Do you want me to check out your blog & follow you? Because I might have skipped your blog and I feel really sorry about that. I sometimes find a very nice blog, and when I find out I'm already being followed by them, I feel uneasy, because I never want to look like an arrogant person. Please, leave a comment under this post with your blog address, so I can follow your awesome blogs! (You can look at my blogger bio to see if you're already there =)

By the way, it's my birthday on Monday, and today I was informed that I can get a free salon manicure for my birthday =) Yay! This will be my first time getting a real salon manicure. The salon is called California Nail Bar, and carries Essie products. I think want a manicure with Essie polishes, but of course with the ones which I don't already own. Below I listed some of the colors I like better than others, so can you help me decide on my birthday manicure color?

Which Essie color should I wear on my birthday?
Pink Parka
Splash of Grenadine
Mint Candy Apple
Red Nouveau


*I know that there are even nicer colors by Essie, but these are the ones I'm sure of that they already have at hand.
I really appreciate all of your feedback =)

Herkese merhaba =)
Bildiğiniz gibi, bu güne kadar iki kez hediye çekilişi yaptım ve blogum bu sırada bir sürü takipçi kazandı. Öncelikle, beni izlemeye değer bulan herkese teşekkür ederim. Benim için ilginiz çok şey ifade ediyor =) Daha sonra tüm takipçileri tek tek inceleyip bloglarını gezmek istedim, ama işler biraz kontrolden çıktı. 500 kişinin bloguna tek tek bakacak vaktim olmadı, baksam bile bir süre sonra isimler birbirine karışmaya başladı, ve eklemiş miydim emin olamamaya başladım. Bu yüzden sizlere soruyorum, sevgili takipçilerim: Blogunuza göz atmamı ya da sizi takip etmemi istiyor musunuz? Çünkü beni eklediğiniz halde ben sizi gözden kaçırmış olabilirim ve buna üzülürüm. Bazen çok güzel bir blog keşfediyorum, ve eğer o blog sahibi benim takipçimse çok utanıyorum, çünkü hiçbir zaman okuyucularına aldırış etmeyen biri gibi gözükmek istemem. Lütfen bu yazıya blog adresinizi yorum olarak bırakın, böylece ben de sizin harika bloglarınızı takip edebileyim! (Bu arada Blogger profilime bakarak sizi takip edip etmediğimi görebilirsiniz =)


  1. http://make-upmonstertje.blogspot.com/

    that's my blog :)

  2. I love your blog, and I'd love you to look at mine! I'm new at this whole thing, but still am having a ton of fun with it!

    I'm at http://layniefingers.blogspot.com/ . Silly name, silly blog... :D

  3. www.neverendingobsession.blogspot.com
    Thanks hun :)

  4. My nails are awful! All the time broken and I hate them. So went 3 or 4 years ago to one very good and expensive nail-salon. The woman gave me plenty of advice about nails and after a year I thought that I had nice and long nails. I payed about 30 € for EVERY visit. Now i know, that all her advice was a big bullshit and that my nails was a big disaster.

  5. Love your blog! Happy Birthday!!! Birthday festivities weekend begins?

    My blog just started not too long ago...

    Thanks x

  6. I wore Wicked at my last birthday. So I voted Wicked. Also because it's among my 5 favorite Essie ever. <3

    I hope you'll share your salon experience! I've never gotten a manicure to a salon. I should to see how it is but I love painting my nails myself. It's so relaxing. There was only one salon in my hometown (where I've bought my first OPIs) but when I came back to buy a couple of polishes some time ago they were out of business. How sad, it had been here since I was an early teenager!

    As for blogs, I have a blog too. Woohoo! Ah ah. I'm a goof. ;)

    I have half less followers than you do and it's already hard to keep up to date with everyone so nearly 800 persons? Wow. You're not arrogant. We're not arrogant. You surely follow people who don't follow you, and there are people who follow you and you don't follow them. It's hard to keep up to date with everyone. But I know what motivates you. I love supporting blogs too. =)

  7. Happy birthday!
    I would love if you would follow my blog. I follow yours, and it is on my blog roll :-)

  8. First of all have a super awesome birthday on Monday getting your mani :)
    I've been a fan of your blog for a long time and just wanted to say I'm still a huge fan. You do lovely work.

    my blog is http://shortandsweetnails.blogspot.com/

  9. :) you have so much followers and it's human not to be able to follow each one... I'm not on your list but I'd like if you read my little blog... http://nailsbyalice.blogspot.com/ thankyou <3

  10. I vote for Mint Candy Apple or Splash of Grenadine. They both look great on swatches:)

    And I'd love to read about how your salon manicure goes. even though I'm a nail polish freak, I've never had one done! :)

  11. You blog is awesome!
    my blog is http://coloresdecarol.blogspot.com/

  12. Have a good birthday, and i hope you enjoy your salon experience. I've never had mine done at a salon, but when i had my appendix out my mum did my toenails for me which was really nice :)

    I'm not sure if your following me but it's http://bethanieesnails.blogspot.com

  13. I chose mint candy apple. It looks a gorgeous colour & its totally in right now =)

    My blog is lifeisfullofbeautyx.blogspot.com ♥

  14. I enjoy your blog very much.

    It would be unrealistic for you to check all the blogs, FB posts, Twitter retweets. I'd so easily get sidetracked reading the blogs! Another blogger, who doesn't have quite as many followers, made the rules easy: make a comment and give your email address. Very simple.

    For me, for my last giveaway, I wrote down the names of each person who entered and for each of their entries. I now see why random.org (net?) is used!

    Get comments and followers and make that mandatory. Ask for them to FB post and/or tweet, but it won't count as an extra entry, just a nice gesture.

    Have a splendid Birthday!

  15. Great blog :)

    If you haven't taken a look at mine yet here is the URL:


    I just started my blog recently, hope you enjoy :)
