Winner! Name That Collection Contest

There were some seriously awesome entries for the Name Your Collection contest!  A big thank you to everyone who twetted and retweeted and blogged and facebooked about it.  You guys are the best!

Let me give you a sampling of some of the amazing collections!

Cassie of Shabby Makeup and More named her collection "Shabby Chic" and gave us some muted, pretty pastels. 

Cassondra of Mama's Passions gave us a collection inspired by steamy summer romance, with names like "Luster", "Bare Skin", and "Midnight Kiss".  Love it!

Kattatonic Fierceology (awesome blog name, by the way) came up with a collection inspired by Jeffree Star.  Here are two particularly lovely examples:

 It was very hard for me to narrow them all down, so I had to pick a runner up....

The runner-up is Fierce Nerditude, with her seriously hilarious collection "Say What?!" named after mis-heard song lyrics.  The name and description that really made me LOL was:

Does It Make A Difference If We're Naked Or Not?A reference to Bon Jovi's 'Livin' On A Prayer.' While the real line is "Does it make a difference if we make it or not?" that's so not what I heard. Fun fact: a friend of mine swears up and down that he thought he heard "(Whoa) We're half-gay bears,/(Whoa-oh) Livin' on eclairs," but I think that's probably way too long. Also, I don't really believe him (even if I did nearly die laughing when he sang it for me).

I think this would be fun as a peachy yellow with a bit of a nude pink shift.


The Rose Lady with her collection called The Color Police, inspired by things overheard while listening to the police scanner (LOL!) Names like "Illegal Use of Explosives", "Lewd Conduct", and "Suspicious Person" had me giggling out loud. 


Snarky P with a collection that poses a question: which creature would survive the apocalypse?  Humans, Lycans, Wizards, and Bugs (yes, bugs!) are all candidates, but I think that the loveliest sounding one is "Faeries: Rainbow iridescence, shimmer and twinkles, in a pale pink base."

Congratulations, Snarky and Anne!  I'll be creating your collections and shipping them to you both as soon as possible!  Please email me with your mailing address: natalie (at) gmail (dot) com.
