I wanted this to be open to EVERYONE, so this giveaway is going to be a little bit different! At first I was going to have one U.S winner, but  I didn't want to leave out my International girls so here's the plan -- in the event that the first confirmed winner is an International fan that person will receive the Gift Card prize. Then a 2nd US winner will be drawn to receive the gift box. In the event that the first winner drawn is a US winner, they will win the entire prize box, including gift card. 

Enter via the Rafflecopter below & again thank you all for the continued love & support you show me!

Where have you beeeeeeeen?!

Hi dolls! Long time no blog! I'd like to take just a second and apologize for my absence and tie up any loose ends. A few months ago, I started nail school and without knowing how intense and fast paced it was going to be I didn't plan ahead. Life got crazy, and real life became more real and blogging just wasn't in the cards. In between now and then, I've had IMMENSE problems with my internet provider to the point where I was without for 2 months (all while paying of course -_-), had a close family friend die, family health issues and a deathly illness which I'm still fighting with. Those I have reviews promised for, don't fret I'm working on them quicker then you can blink! I'm sorry for any trouble this might have caused anyone, but with all of this going on I fell into a blogging slump and I told myself that I didn't want to give you guys a half-assed post if I wasn't really into it. Now that I've graduated school & got my license I feel like this huge weight has been lifted and now I can really begin a career in something I love - nails! With that said, I'm feeling the blogging bug again and there's no better time to celebrate! Coming in the next TEN MINUTES I'll have a huge giveaway post up for everyone!

Thank you all for your continued support and love for College Polished <3
