Yesterday I blogged about Swatch And Learn’s 3rd blogiversary. The response I received from my amazing readers made my eyes water. It’s an incredible experience to feel the love and support from people who inspire me and support me!
To celebrate this milestone, I want to treat my loyal Canadian readers to a massive nail-polish giveaway as a token of my appreciation. (Psst, I will be having a worldwide nail-polish giveaway next week so that nobody will be left out!) Edit: Click here to enter the worldwide giveaway that’s now live!
I reached out to OPI’s PR team to ask if they’d be willing to collaborate with me on this special occasion. To my delight, they said yes and were generous to offer a huge prize that I know readers will love!
Until Friday August 9 at 11:59 pm Eastern, you can enter for your chance to win the entire 15-shade OPI San Francisco Collection!
Please read the rest of this post for the details.
Edit (August 10): Congratulations, Amanda! You’ve won this giveaway! She replied quickly to my e-mail to claim her prize, so this giveaway is officially closed. Thanks to everyone for participating! Remember, my 2nd giveaway (worldwide) to win the entire a-england Burne-Jones Dream Collection is still going on until August 16th!
- Starts: Now
- Ends: Friday August 9 at 11:59 pm Eastern
- Who Can Enter: Canadian residents (International readers, check back again soon! I have a worldwide giveaway coming up next week!)
- Prize: The entire OPI San Francisco Collection (15 full-size bottles!) To see the exact shades, click on the link. It leads to the official press release and links to the swatches and reviews I’ve done. I’ve reviewed all the colours, which I received when I attended the OPI San Francisco Collection launch party where I met Suzi Weiss-Fischmann a 2nd time!
- How Many Times You Can Enter: One entry per person. Even if you comment more than once, I will only count it as a single entry.
- How to Enter: Leave a comment on this blog post. (It can be about anything! You could tell me about the nail polish you’re currently lemming, what movie you recently watched, what TV show you’re hooked on, etc.)
- Selecting the Winner: I’ll be using Random.org to randomly select the winner. I’ll announce the winner sometime on August 10 or August 11. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my e-mail to claim the prize. Failure to do so will force me to randomly draw another winner. After the winner sends me the mailing address, I’ll forward it to OPI’s PR, and they’ll send you the prize directly! (Please add email@example.com to your Safe list so my e-mail doesn’t accidentally go to the Junk folder.)

Hi ! I love your blog and OPI nail polishes of course ! My favorite color of the collection is Alcatraz … Rocks !
Today I was given my severance package at work and my blog is once again proving to be a wonderful salve. Amazing how a hobby can give one something productive to focus on. I’m glad blogging helped you after your dad passed away, too — it was wonderful to read your last post, it made me feel like I understood a bit of your journey. Keep on truckin’. 🙂

Congrats on your 3 year anniversary! Your tribute to your father was beautiful. I too have lost a parent and related to many of the feelings you shared in the aftermath of his death. I am so glad that this blog has brought you such joy and purpose!
Canadian crossing my fingers:)

Happy bday again dear blog! thank you again for this amazing chance Marie…I know very few blogs that award us with giveaway so often! SWATCHANDLEARN FOR EVER!!!!
All my love!
Been following you a long time, Girl!! You are still me favourite nail blogger (the only one I receive by email!). Keep up the fantastic work and Happy Blogiversary!!
Good to see a Canadian beauty blogger; there aren’t too many of you around. Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary, and keep up the good work!
Love your blog! Hope there is many more blogiversaries to come! I’ve lost both of parents, yesterday was the 5 years anniversary of my dad. Thanks for your story yesterday! I really hope I win then I won’t have to chose between all the pretty colours. 🙂

Congrats on your anniversary and I love reading your blog about the nail world. Thanks for the great chance to win this collection.
Wow! What a fabulous collection!
Yeah a contest opened to canadians!!
Happy anniversary, my favourite blogger! 😀 I recently saw Pacific Rim and am in awe. I had originally dismissed it as a Transformers knockoff but I should know better coming from Guillermo del Toro! His love for the genre, its origins and culture really shine through. I know it was a box office disappointment but I’m hoping it made enough to greenlight a sequel! Fingers crossed!
OMG I love all the colors in this except the liquid sand ones. Would love to have all of those colors!
Wow, congrats on your three-year blog-iversary!
I found your blog last year when I first got *into* nail polish (beyond the usual, no-collector normal-person level of owning a couple bottles and using them from time to time). It was your reviews of the OPI Germany that got me following you — and inspired a few purchases fro that collection (actually, who am I kidding – I own all of those except the neutrals!).
Glad you’re still at it after three years – blogs are such a labour of love. Keep posting and I’ll keep reading!
Congratulations on 3 years, hope there are many more! I’m currently wearing William Tell me about OPI and I am really hoping to rock Alcatraz… Rocks!
Happy 3rd! Have you visited San Fran? If not, highly recommended!
Congrats on 3 years blogging, I’ve been following you for about a year now and I just love your blog and LOVE that you’re Canadian too! 🙂 I just recently got my hands on “Dining Al Frisco” but would love to add the rest of the collection to it so it won’t be so lonely. *crosses fingers and toes*
Thanks for the giveaway Mary!
I have to say I’ve finally ventured into the huge world of indie polishes, and I’m a little scared of how many beautiful shades there are out there! The only problem is that they sell out so fast!
Congrats on 3 years! And this is exciting! Love all the colours in this collection!
Congratulations on your 3 years. Oh my a whole OPI San Francisco collection, how exciting. Right now I’m using a Sally Hansen Lilac shade on my toes and fingernails. On my toes I also painted 2 full nails with my new Magnum Real Gold polish and the tips of 2 other toes with the same shade (gold). I’m not usually so inventive while doing my nails but with all the awesome colors, shades and textures out there, the artistic bug has bit me . Thanks for the great giveaway and love your blog. Cheers 🙂
I just found you through Moms makeup stash. Enter me please and looking forward to your future posts!
Going on a cruise soon 🙂 Would love to come home to some awesome polish!
THANK YOU for being awesome (and Canadian).
Love your blog and Pinterest boards! Always checking it for new colours and ideas! You always choose something new and unique.
I really like Peace & Love & OPI and Alcatraz Rocks from this collection!
I went to San Francisco on my honeymoon and can’t wait to try some of these.
HAPPY 3 YEAR GIRL!
Wow congratulations! And than you for the contest! I went and looked at the swatches, they are all fantastic. I think Muir muir and sourdough are my favourites though.
What an exciting giveaway! I love OPI!
Congrats on 3 wonderful years!! I’m attending a wedding this weekend, so excited for my friend!!
Love this collection in my stash!
Yay, happy Blogiversary!, Mary! This giveaway is amazing, this collection looks amazing! For my random comment…I just put on Essie Avenue Maintain, and it’s one of the most perfect blues I’ve ever tried! 😀

Hey girrrl, (I love your blog), right now I’m experimenting with my new favourite thing: water marbling with Zoya Pixie Dust. It turned out amazing !!!

Congrats on the 3-year Blogaversary, Mary! And thanks for another awesome giveaway! I am currently lemming…so many polishes, ha ha! Although I recently killed one when I finally found Dior Saint-Tropez for a good price on evilBay. Fingers crossed it reaches me safe and sound!
Love having a good Canadian nail polish blog and I would LOVE to win this set!

Fav colour from this collection has to be Peace & Love & OPI, who doesn’t love a mysterious multichrome?
Hi Mary! Thank you for the giveaway – I am really lemming Butter London Sprog, which is exclusive to the US website and US Ultas. The new OPI collections are also amazing, and I think the Pixie Dusts from Zoya are really beautiful too. I have too many polishes that I want and too little money…
Just read about your second meeting with Suzi! Sounds like you really got so much out of the experience. Congrats!
Congrats!!!!! The OPI collection looks so pretty.
Congrats on your 3rd year! Love reading your blog and really great choice for a giveaway! Good luck to everyone even though I secretly want them all to myself 😀
Awesome giveaway! Congrats on 3 years! I finally got around to watching the Iron Man movies over the weekend (I know I’m like years behind) – better than I expected actually, Robert Downey Jr. has the BEST humor.
Happy 3rd blog anniversary! I’m very excited for the liquid sands in this OPI collection, specifically Alcatraz…Rocks! I can’t wait to get my hands on that one (be it through winning this contest or buying it on my own 😀 )
I love the Peace & Love & Opi variable color. Fingers crossed that you pick me. Thanks.
When I first saw the promo for the collection I was like “Hummm a few of these look great but nothing amazing” and then I saw your swatches and my thoughts changed to:”Aaaaaahhhh! I need them all!!!”
Wow such a good giveaway for us Canadians that never get the opportunity!
Wow this is an awesome giveaway! There are so many polishes I want from this collection 🙂
Happy blogiversary! I love Alcatraz Rocks from this collection, can’t wait to try it!

Congratulations on your blogging anniversary! I love your blog and I can only imagine how much work goes into it.
I really wanted to get Cashmere Bathrobe from the Fall 2013 Essie collection, but when I saw the display on vacation I forgot which one it was that I wanted and I ended up picking up a polish that I didn’t want as bad. That is my story. Just thought I should tell it to somebody who might be remotely interested. 😛
Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on 3 yrs! These giveaways are on my list of why I love being Canadian lol! 🙂
Congratulations! Once again, I love your blog and thank you for another awesome giveaway!
Happy Anniversary!!! Congrats on a such an amazing achievement and wishing you many more years to come!!! Thank you for celebrating with a very generous & thoughtful giveaway. 🙂
