Giveaway: You Knew Me When by Emily Liebert & a custom...

The other day, I pulled this set out to photograph for the giveaway. Ned commented on how cool it was. I figure when a guy who doesn’t read romances or any type of books like these thinks a promotion is cool, the promotion has succeeded.  What we have today is 1 copy of Emily Liebert’s You Knew Me When and a set of custom nail polish by Zoya representing the different women in the story.

You Knew Me When

When Katherine Hill receives word of an inheritance from former neighbor Luella Hancock, she reluctantly returns home to the people and places she left behind. Hoping for a second chance, she’s met by an unforgiving Laney, her former best friend. And there’s someone else who’s moved on without her—someone she once loved. Tethered to their shared inheritance of Luella’s sprawling Victorian mansion, Katherine and Laney are forced to address their long-standing grudges. Through this, they come to understand that while life has taken them in different directions, ultimately the bonds of friendship and sisterhood still bind them together. But are some wounds too old and deep to mend?


I wish I could keep this set for my own!!

    I dunno about custom made, but my favorite shade is a very dark wine red–bold but classy.

    I look best in pink, so it would have to be that.

    I love red. Whatever it is, it would need to be a really bright look-at-me fire engine red.

  8. Eliza Evans
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 03:33:06

    If I had a custom nail color made, it would be silver with a royal blue shimmer. Very icy.

    Thank you for the contest!

    Sep 21, 2013 @ 04:48:05

    A deep blue-green with a metallic tint. That would be my custom polish.

  10. Sally
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 05:39:27

  11. Sally W.
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 06:56:32

    I can’t wear fingernail polish, but I admit to getting a pedicure often :)

    I love the darker reds – And if the name is a good one, I’ll switch colors just for the name

    I would create a smooth linear holographic in true red. It would not be a scattered holo nor would it skew pink (as many “red” holos do).

  15. Liz
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 08:57:10

    Dark Green would be a great shade

  16. Cynthia R
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 08:58:37

    Hmmm…a reddish black color.

  17. CarolynHP

    I love plum as a nail polish color, especially in the fall. Maybe to make it special I would add a gold shimmer to it.

  18. Sue G.
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 11:36:20

    It would be something in a teal blue color since that is my favorite color. I’d call it Sue’s Blue

  19. Kim
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 11:49:50

    I’ve always been partial to red or pink, so I’d consult on that.

    Sep 21, 2013 @ 12:28:07

    My custom polish would be a pink, silver and gold multichrome shade. It would display different shades in different lighst!

  21. Jenna
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 13:33:36

    A dark green with gold flecks. I saw a color just like it at a nail salon but it went on black. Ever since then I’ve wanted to find the real deal.

  22. JennyME
    Sep 21, 2013 @ 15:11:44

    I love dark colours and think they look best on my short, bitten nails. So some colour (blue, green, whatever) that’s so dark its almost, but not quite, black.

  33. Nancy B

  34. Mary
    Sep 22, 2013 @ 03:01:02

    Light pink :)

  35. Naomi
    Sep 22, 2013 @ 11:36:40

  37. Nicole C.
    Sep 22, 2013 @ 13:21:37

    I would want a true hot pink. One that is bright but not fluorescent. A hint of sparkle would be nice.
