Come One, Come All!!

I've been dying to do a contest or a giveaway! And, as I've come into possession of some yellow and pink (imitation) gold leaf flakes, I thought now might be a great time; READ ON, GOOD PEOPLE!

LtoR -- TonyMoly PinkBeige; Rokk96 I'llBeFrank; Rokk96 Paparazzi; Container of yellow & pink gold leaf flakes; foundation sponge (& cuticle sticks, to break apart the gold flakes into smaller pieces)
I know, it's not much (also, I cannot take good photos =/), but, gimme a break, I am an unemployed student. At least know that I spent a good amount of time picking out the colours.
Now, I've tried to show the colours well.

Close-up of the gold flakes. It doesn't look like much, but this is my prettiest container, and it does actually go quite a long way, for me at least.

TONY MOLY -- PinkBeige

My Baby, My Love, My SweetiePie, My favourite nudy polish! This is pretty much the colour, maybe a hint warmer in the bottle, but it does end up like this on the nail. Korean Brand.

rokk96 -- Paparazzi
Lady Gaga, anyone? This is a delicious, delicious creme. I opened the bottle to check it out on fakies, it should be opaque in 2 coats. I'm seriously considering getting this one for myself. Australian brand.

rokk96 -- I'll Be Frank

And you be Suzy!!
Or not.
I am constantly amazed by how many bottles I buy, thinking it's a dark, dreamy brown, only for it to turn out purple. A dark, dreamy purple, BUT STILL!! This is one of those. I bought it thinking a brown is very suitable for gold, but it turned into what must be the most beautiful wine purple I've ever come across.

That's about the closest I can get in a photo. Suddenly theres a whole lot more red shimmer than gold shimmer and it's this really dark, decadent kinda purple. Just know that you NEED this.
Trust me, you do.
