First things first, hats off to Cecilia M, who won the first of my five Carol’s Daughter Transitioning Kit ($40) giveaways! Her comment describing her natural hair icon was so charming:
“Mine is the random lady from the beauty counter at my local mall. Her Diana Ross-esque ‘do is ever-changing, her accessories are to die for, and she always looks so poised and confident. Meanwhile, there I stand across from her in my full wig — sweaty and unoriginal — trying to convince myself that my wig has a natural-looking closure. When secretly, all I dream about is looking like this natural goddess.”
To win the second Transitioning Kit, describe your favorite way to dress up your natural/transitioning tresses!
Aaand now, check out this week’s SYB Freebie: Essie’s ‘Bikini So Teeny’ summer 2012 collection ($8 per bottle)! Oh girls, these shades are so lusciously vibrant, so eye-catching, so…edible-looking, like sorbet or gelato or tropical Starbursts. In the prettiest possible way! Fear or Desire is the bright orange, Off the Shoulder is the smoking hot pink, Cascade Cool is a shimmery pale pink, Bikini So Teeny (my fave) is an all-eyes-on-me sky blue, All Tied Up = bronze goddess realness, and Mojito Madness (my second fave) is a feisty, festive lime.
To win the entire collection, hit the comments section and tell me what nail polish you’re wearing RIGHT NOW, and why you adore it/feel “meh” about it/loathe it. Best one wins!
