OPI Alcatraz...Rocks and GIVEAWAY!!

I'm so excited for today's post for so many reasons!  The good people over at Beyond Polish sent me over a few fall/winter polishes to try out and show you, and this is the first one, OPI Alcatraz...Rocks.  




normally I'd crop these pictures, but look at the fall foliage in the background; so pretty


by lamp light

look at all the different sparkles!!!!  ahhhhh!!

without topcoat--it's pulling waaaaaay purple here, but look how sparkly!



and just for fun, here's what happens when I try to take a selfie with Remy lately.  I'm trying to make a noise to get him to pay attention and he's all STEP OFF, TALK TO THE PAW.


Oh.  My.  God.  This polish.  I can't.  I can't even.  It's just too beautiful.  The base is sort of a smoky indigo that leans more toward the blue side in real life.  Then it's just packed with different colors of shimmer.  Seriously, there's gold, green, blue, pink, purple...that's why I included that really blurry picture up there, because it does a good job at showing the shimmer.  A couple coats of topcoat really bring out the sparkle, too.  I have to say that when mattes were trending in 2009 I was not into it.  But I LOOOOOVE the textured finishes that have been happening for the past year.  I have a couple other ones, including Jinx from OPI (which is aaaawwweeesome), but I feel like Alcatraz...Rocks is basically the end-all-be-all of Liquid Sands.  It's too lovely.  The formula was great, and I used two coats.  

So now for the other reason I'm excited about this post...I actually bought Alcatraz...Rocks for myself back in September and never used it.  So now I have two bottles:  the one sent to me by Beyond Polish, and my unused bottle.  And that's where the GIVEAWAY comes in.  There's no reason for me to have two bottles, so I want to give one to one of you.

Here's how you enter.  It's easy.
1.  Make sure you're following this blog.  Just click "follow" over in the righthand sidebar.  Already did that?  Cool.  
2.  Comment on THIS POST.  In the comment please include the following:
  1. Your name
  2. A way to contact you (e-mail address)
  3. Your favorite thing about fall
3.  Tell someone about this giveaway.  There are no extra entries for this.  Just tell someone.  Text your mom, send your best pal an e-mail, whatever.  You can post about it on your blog if you've got one.  It's the honor system, girls, so do me proud.
4.  Enter by Sunday, November 10 at 11:59pm EST.  I will randomly choose a winner and announce who it is here on the following Monday.  YES, THIS IS OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL READERS, TOO.

That's all.  Good luck in the giveaway, and if you don't win you can always order this polish from Beyond Polish for $6.95 (once it's back in stock...it's that popular).

Thanks for reading, guys, and I'll talk to you soon!

[This polish sent for review.  The opinions expressed are my own.]

    Favorite thing about fall: The weather. The air just feels cleaner, and it doesn't rain as much as it does in spring. Since I live in the Northeast, the colors are pretty spectacular as well.

    I'm not a texture fan, but the sparklyness of this one may change my mind, if not there is always topcoat.
