It's ALIQUID's One-Year Bloggiversary!! [Giveaway]

Readers, do you know what day it is? It's April 7, which means my little blog has been running for an entire year! The time has passed so quickly! It seems like only yesterday that I was posting my very first (not great) swatches...and now, exactly 200 posts later, I have over 600 followers on Bloglovin' and over 700 on Facebook! Wow!!

Writing this blog has been a great creative outlet for me, especially as my life has been a little crazy for the past year. Sometimes I feel a little down, but seeing all your comments and likes always cheers me up. Thank you to everyone who reads ALIQUID...I really appreciate you guys. <3

OK, no more sappy stuff--on to the giveaway!! I rounded up eight awesome ladies to join in the celebration with me!

As an homage to my blog, I decided to make an ALIQUID Lacquer polish based on the blog's color scheme! I call it Semper Aliquid Novi, which is Latin for "always something new". The phrase comes from Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder, who said, "Africa is always bringing us something new". (To the Greeks and Romans, Africa was a mysterious land full of strange creatures like dog-headed men.) I think it's a nice reminder not to let my blogging get too stale and repetitive, but to always try and broaden my skillset!

ALIQUID Lacquer Semper Aliquid Novi. Two coats with Out the Door topcoat.

Semper Aliquid Novi is a khaki-colored crelly with matte glitters in shades of teal, green, yellow and grey. It's available for sale in my shop, but I'm also giving a bottle away!
