CherrySue's Gratuitous Graphite Giveaway!

So, 66 followers later I'm thinking it's time to give something back and what's better than a Chanel polish that's taking the beauty world by storm? - egged on by the limited availability of course. 

A polish has to be special to make me annihalte my most recent nail art after 2 days, without hesitation to show you - how pretty! 

This one is for Moi, yours is untouched!
Just Stunning!
The lovely Dee & Sineád over at Viva Adonis really put the goo on me for this one with their Chanel haul post, not to mention the fact that there are no dupes! You heard me, none! 

The Goddess of the duping beauty world, Temptalia has said as much and her word is gospel. Fact. 

Once I had heard each Chanel counter was only getting 90 bottles I called BT with the quickness. Helpful gal informed me that they had only 2 bottles left (and one Peridot, sssshh, I'm hiding that on myself as a Graduation self gift) I hurtled into Grafton St and picked 'em up. 

Me, being me, a generous soul to the last, couldn't leave one bottle on it's lonesome so that's where you come in. Who wants?!

Giveaway is open to Ireland and UK followers ONLY. You have shots at this so please read the rules carefully:

To Enter: 

1. Firstly, you must be a follower of the blawg, new or old, via Google Friend Connect. (I'll be checking). If you're not following yet, where have you been? Click on the GFC on the right, post haste!

2. For a second entry, follow yours truly on Twitter @ItsCherrySue. I'm hilarious so trust me, this isn't a hardship. 

3. Third entry? You gotta give my Facebook page a big blue thumb up! You can find me here or by using the ickle box on the right. 

4. Lastly, for all you Twidder lovers,  Tweet the following 'WIN CHANEL GRAPHITE with @ItsCherrySue over on

You must leave a comment on this post to tell me how many entries you are entitled to, again, I'll be checking. Please include your email address/Twitter username/FB ID & GFC name.
The giveaway will close on the 4th of September, just in time to show off your Chanel on the school run or in the office. 

Winner will be drawn by to keep things fair. If you are under 18, please get your parent or guardian's permission to enter. If you're of the male persuasion there are no words for how many brownie points this beauty could buy you. (Hint: It's feckin' LOADS!)

Soz, Giveaway is closed, Folks, winner to be announced on the 5th-
Do stick around though, 100 Follower Giveaway to be announced at the same time! 

What are you waiting for? Another pic? Oh go on then...
