Giveaway: Birchbox Launches Belle's Nail Polish

Several weeks ago, you, my lovely readers, turned out in droves to vote for my nail polish shade in the Birchbox/Zoya contest.  And now, after what seemed like a lifetime of waiting, my shade (Belle by Capitol Hill Style) is finally ready to be revealed.  Hooray!

The Capitol Hill Style polish is being sold in a trio with the shades created by the other contest winners.  The middle shade is a gorgeous grapefruit created by Kate at The Small Things Blog.  Also in the trio is a bright tangerine from the ladies at Eleventh Gorgeous.  And my polish, Belle (on the far left), is a pinky-coral with copper iridescence.  

If you apply one coat of Belle, you get a bright, but sheer, shimmery pink that adds just a kiss of color to your fingertips.  You can also layer this polish over the other two shades to create the perfect pedicure polish.  I, however, like to apply three coats of the buildable formula to create a deep coral-pink shade with just the right amount of lustre to my toes.

For those of you who are concerned about toxic chemicals in your beauty products, Zoya’s polishes are free of harmful ingredients like toluene, formaldehyde, DBP, and camphor.  But unlike some “green” polishes, Zoya’s products last about 50 percent longer than other brands.

The shades are being sold exclusively by Birchbox.  They’re selling the polishes now for those of you who are interested in purchasing the Zoya Blogger Collection by Birchbox ($22).  (If you haven’t subscribed to Birchbox yet, you can get an invite here. You may end up on a waiting list, but it typically takes just a month to get off the list.  What can I say? They’re popular.)

In the meantime, I have three pack of polish to give away.  So I thought that I would give away one set here on the site, one on Twitter and one on Facebook.  

Since these shades just scream summer with all of their bright fruity goodness, you can enter the blog giveaway by leaving a comment detailing your favorite warm weather activity.  (Don’t forget to sign in with your email when you comment, this is only visible to me.)

To enter the Facebook giveaway, become a fan of the Capitol Hill Style page and share the post about the Zoya Birchbox shade (it’s the top status update) with your Facebook Friends.  And if you want to enter on Twitter, follow Belle on Twitter and simply tweet the link to the Zoya Blogger collection and don’t forget to mention @CapitolHillStyle.  Did you catch all of that? Geez, that feels like a lot of directions.  

Good Luck! And I hope you ladies love the polish as much as I do.

    Being a western girl, I'm all for paddling around in an inner-tube or kayak. For a while, I even had a bathing suit that matched my kayak.
