Mini Review of Color Club Betwitching & Giveaway!

**Contest Is Now CLOSED**

I purchased the Color Club Bewitching mini set a while back from Victoria Nail Supply, and I was also furnished a set from Color Club. So what should I do with the extra set? Give it away, of course! Also included is Art Club's Bewitching Gems Carousel. It's a little late for the winner to use this year for Halloween, but some of the shades--particularly Hocus Pocus and Charmed I'm Sure--are not strictly Halloween colors. Bewitching is the perfect one-coat black creme, which is always nice to have on hand.

Below: These are the stickers that come with the Bewitching set, and they're fabulous! I have quite a few Halloween decals, and these are by far the cutest and most creative ones I've see.

Below: Still on the Halloween topic, I just finished making a massive quantity of candy-filled goodie bags for my daughter's school Halloween party tomorrow. And I'm pleased to report that I only ate one piece of candy while I was filling them!

I'll be baking cookies all afternoon for the party, so we'll see how many of those I manage to consume! If you'd like to enter for a chance to win the Color Club/Art Club set--and I'll even make the winner a skeletor goodie bag!--just leave your eMail below in the comments. If you're dressing up for Halloween or have any spooky plans, let us know that too!
Contest ends at 10/29/10 at midnight!
*Products for the giveaway were furnished by the manufacturer or PR firm.

  32. awesome little set!

    we're just going out for drinks, nothing fancy


    Nothing planned for Halloween, just handing out candy. Exciting stuff, I know.

  34. Ooh, I'd love to enter: a Skeletor set?! Beyond awesome! :) :) :)

    My email is My band is playing our favourite pub on Saturday where my friend is also having his birthday party and we're all dressing up as Discworld characters; my outfit's basically a sexy witch outfit, as it fits in with the Guild of "Seamstresses" :P

  35. Great giveaway! Enter me plesae!

  36. Tina
    Thanks and Have a great day!!!

  37. Great! :)

    Btw, I think I'll dress up like a 30s lady, as in the musical Chicago :)

  38. I'd love to enter! We don't celebrate Halloween here, but I might just dress up for fun because we are going to do some sort of scary movie night ;) I'm not sure what I'd pick yet, can't decide between a fairy and some sort of 'attacked by a monster' look..and they are so different :P


  39. I love halloween. Usually I have my costume planned out months in advance. This year was no exception. Only problem is that my family ran into some financial problems and I am now not able to be what I had hoped to be. I had my heart set on being the Toilet Fairy. Wings, toilet brush and a tool belt with various cleaning products hanging off of it was going to be me. Instead I have to settle for some fake vampire teeth caps and my make-up artist skills to make myself a pale gothy creature of the night.

    My email is punkpain[at]gmail[dot]com and FYI I want the skeleton!!

  40. Count me in since Halloween here is not a celebration and Halloween nail polish collections or sets are a lie.

    No big plans, here. We will do the usual... Watch movies and pass out candy to any little goblins who might bang on our door. Since that isn't likely, my son will then take the candy bowl into his lair and eat the contents. lol

    Have a happy Hallowe'en! *boo!*

    I have no plans to dress up for Halloween right now, but could change my mind at the last minute. If I do I'd probably just use makeup to give myself a creepy mug, zombie maybe, and find some ratty clothes to go with that. That would be easy enough to pull off at the last minute.

  75. Aww, cute.



  76. We don't really celebrate Halloween in France, but I think I'll try to have a Halloween-esque manicure for that day, just because.

    I'd love to enter your giveaway, and wish you a great Halloween celebration!

    My email address is : ladyofthelaake (at)

  77. Nuts. Didn't get the e-mail update for your blog until 12:28 and now it's almost 5am. Still, first time I'm seeing a good pic of those nail decals and they are SO CUTE, I must get them. I especially like the round ones with one wing that look like they're saying, "What the heck am I supposed to do with only one wing!?"

    Thanks for the post.

  78. Happy Halloween

    Just handing out candy this year.

    Thanks for the giveaway.


  79. No plans as of yet for this halloween :(

    Those goodie bags look great!

    Thanks for another great giveaway!


  80. Oh, wow those goodie bags are so cute! Yesterday I filled some sandwich bags that I 'decorated' with a sharpie , with candy for my mom's boyfriends son's Haloween party for his class, that is happening today. So tiring haha. What did you use for those bags? Again they are so cute hehe.

    My email is : KayKayMusume @ .

    Thanks for having this giveaway :D.

    Hmm , my plans? Well I am just gonna get comfy in my chair, have my comp at the ready , and watch Ghost Hunters Live. And then help my mom's boyfriend's son sort his candy when he gets back from Trick-or-Treating.

    Have a great Halloween~!

  81. I'm such a halloween lover, but we don't celebrate it here. All that happened was that a club had a couple halloween spiders and stuff when I went out yesterday. But thats all haha. I'd love to have some halloween polishes! I've seen pics of crazy halloween houses in the street of my family that live in the usa. would be great to see that some day

I am 18 but I may be going on trick on treating since I am so short and with the mask people can't tell!

  98. Just planning on taking the kids trick or treating. All that walking is good exercise before I pig out on all that candy.

    I follow on GFC

  99. I went to a Halloween party last week, so I have no fun Halloweeny plans other than to hand out candy. Which, honestly, I love doing! I'm still young and I guess I haven't gotten bored of it yet, haha.

    Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway! I love those decals. They are just too cute. :D

  100. This looks like such a fun set! Thanks for the giveaway.

    I have to work tomorrow, but I've been sporting Halloween nails most of the month, did some for a co-worker today at lunch.
    I've got a batty headband I plan to wear all weekend long (wore it to work today too) and pass out candy Sunday night. Going to a corn maze with my hubby for date night...hoping to see some kids having Halloween fun while we're there. :)

  101. Not going to dress up but going to take my three year trick or treating. Hope she collects lots of candy for me!
