Amor de Lacquer: $5 off of Zoya purchaes $20 and more


Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

If you are a regular viewer of the Amor de Lacquer series then you already know how much of a stan I am for Zoya polishes. I can’t get enough of them. But what do I love most about this company? Not the beautiful polishes. Not the fast shipping and great customer service. Not even that their polishes omit the toxic ingredients like toluene and DHP. But that they are constantly having sales/deals. This is one sure way to keep me as a customer!

Check out the newest deal:

As the thank you for your loaylty, take $5 off any order over $20 online on any Zoya or Qtica order.

Use code: TAKE5

This offer is valid through 2/20/2009, This is a web only offer on www.zoya.com, www.qtica.comor www.artofbeauty.com. This offer is not valid with any other coupons or offers. One code per order.

If you have not yet signed up for their newsletter, what are you waiting on? Still haven’t tried any polishes from Zoya? Here’s a Persiphony; one of my first Zoya purchases.

My nails were so short then. This is a great Spring color. Got your eyes on any Zoya or Qtica items? How about any recommendations? I think I may take another Zoya plunge.

Also….

Congrats to Tiffany!!!

She was the winner for the The Body Shop Moroccan Mystery giveaway.

Don’t be a hater. I will replenish the Honey Pot soon.
Stay tuned for the next giveaway!

Sellin’ stuff….

So since I’m moving to Florida in a few weeks, I’ve been all over the place cleaning up that little room I live in. Everything can’t go because I can only take 2 suitcases soooo I was seriously going to throw away my MAC products but I figured I could try and see if some of my blog folx wanted anything.

I’ve got:

Espresso e/s-used 2x
MAC Green Gel cleanser-about 70% left
MAC’s Prep-N-Prime-about 75% left
MAC’s Deep Dark MSF-used 6x
MAC #11 lashes-never used (not pictured)

…..I’ve also got some other eyeshadows like Mythology (pan), Tilt (pan) and a ton of other things I have to go through to get rid of. I didn’t put up prices because I’m down for swapping and/or you naming your own price. And I don’t exactly know how payment would work since I’ve only paid through Paypal (not receive payment) but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

All inquiries can be left on this post or through email (send me a message on my Contact b0x). If no one wants anything I’m going to empty the products and use good ole’ B2M. Which may come in hand for Fafffffiiii, babaaaayyyy!

Peace & Obama
