We have an important announcement from Hayley of Emily de Molly

On Monday 28th at 7pm I will be releasing a few new shades. These new colours will be available for one week only and then I will be closing up shop on the 5th of May for an undetermined amount of time.
That Monday marks my 38th week of pregnancy so I will be enjoying some much needed time off from work before the big day arrives and obviously I will be having some time off after the birth also. 
I am currently working on orders for Llarowe, Nail Polish Canada, Mei Mei Signatures and Norway Nails, so there will be restocks at the above websites in the coming weeks ( provided bub doesn't arrive early ) These restocks will NOT include the new colours that are being released on the 28th, these will not be available until I return to work. 
As always, thank you for your support and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Hayley, AIPAS sends its best wishes you and your family on your upcoming special delivery.

Theresa Carter of It's All About the Polish has a month of giveaways, and details them out below.

A month of giveaways as I missed everything! 
I have to admit that I've missed a lot of achievements as a nail blogger.
So I decided to celebrate the fact that I forgot everything and have a giveaway now. I asked the Australian brands that I love and you see regularly featured on my blog to help out and they very generously have sponsored the giveaway. So much so that I've decided to have a weekly prize valued at RRP over $50 for the next 4 weeks, a month long prize and an Instagram giveaway. I missed placing it in the newsletter earlier so I am just about halfway through my month of giveaways. 
You have until 8.30pm 26th April to enter the fabulous Celestial Cosmetics Prize pack including five gorgeous holos and a roller cuticle oil. The one named after me T's in  Tizz, Callisto, In the Navy, Protostar and Birth of a Star. (Unfortunately I was unable to get the newsletter out before this prize was drawn - Ed)
The next giveaway starts on the 26th April and finishes 3rd May at 8.30pm. This giveaway is my the amazing Powder Perfect polish and include five of their gorgeous polishes, Fog is Rolling In, Aquitaine, Secret Passageway,Isolde andFading Tapestry.
