Yay For Free Nail Polish

Heyy, look! Free nail polish! I vaguely remember entering a contest sponsered by Jell-O and Essie ... and this is what came of it. It arrived whilst I was wallowing in pain and self-pity in the throes of wisdom teeth removal. Very timely! Did I mention how weepy that medicine/exhaustion made me? My sweet mama and sister bought me some very beautiful red cannas. When they showed them to me (like, "look! We brought you feel better flowers! Aren't they pretty?"), my response was, "Waaaaaaah! My teeth hurt!" I also took a bath while mama was gone, apparently something I wasn't supposed to do, as I could have fainted, etc. Ooops!
Anyways, I'm rambling. (I'm very good at rambling, if you haven't noticed by now. ;))
The name of this free nail polish is Jell-O Strawberry Acai. I know, what kind of a name is that? But it does look like strawberry jello a little bit. It's a pinky-red with a slightly jelly finish, and very shiny. Not the most original color in the world, but definitely pretty. And I lurve anything free. My only problem with this nail polish was that it was slightly streaky. Oh, and this is 2 coats. You can see some VNL, but only a little, so I didn't add any extra coats. Maybe because I was being slightly lazy and doing a slap-dash job on my nails. Bad Faithy!


  1. Lucky you! Love strawberry jello and the nail polish also. How are you feeling now?

  2. Lucy - Yes, strawberry jello is good. :) I ate quite a bit of it while I was recovering from the whole wisdom teeth thing. I can safely say that I'm recovered now, since I went to my follow-up appointment today, and was pronounced good. Yay!

  3. Essie is all about the brand hook ups - I have the polish they made for Pama Pomegranate Liquor. The color is awesome:)

  4. Home Spa Goddess - O yeah, I totally have that one too. :)
