Hey Guys!! Guess what it's time for?!!!


Woop, Woop!!
Are you excited?! I am because I decided I would do a simple and easy give-away
when I reached my first 50 followers.

So, thank you for following me and being patient with me as I learn the ropes of the
blogging world. I hope you have enjoyed it so far and will continue to read. I want my
blog to be a place where we can all share helpful and inspiring beauty tips
with each other!

So... here's how it's going to work:
Below is a picture of some of my favorite OPI nail shades.

From left to right I have:
(sweetheart, ate berries in the canaries, lincoln park after dark, you don't know jacques,
opi ink, over the taupe, mrs. o'leary's bbq, barefoot in barcelona, and
all lacquered up. )

In order to win you have to:

1. Follow my blog publicly

2. Comment below on this post and let me know what your favorite OPI shade is. Or, if
you don't have a favorite you can comment on what your favorite brand of polish is.

That's it!! I'm going to make the first give-away super easy.

So, what do you win you ask?!

1. $25 Gift Card to Sephora

2. An OPI nail polish in your shade of choice.

Deadline to Enter is a week from today, Tuesday August 2nd at 12:00 a.m.
Central Time. Winner will be selected Wednesday morning by generator.

So, let the fun and games begin!
May the best Glamanista win!


  1. OPI Ink: that blue is amazing!!

  2. I LOVE your blog, Brooke! I think you're doing a wonderful job!

    I'm tore between two shades. I love the 'ate berries in the canaries' and the 'OPI Ink'

  3. FYI: You don't have to select one of the colors I listed above... you can pick ANY shade you love. I would love to hear other colors that I don't have that you think are great! : )

    Love your blog!!! My favorite is actually in your line-up--- ate berries in the canaries is on my toes now!!!! I want to win :)

  5. My faves are Cajun Shrimp for summer, I'm not really a waitress for fall, and Bubble Bath for anytime in between. I have seen You Don't Know Jaques on you and I love it too! Did you know OPI has an iPhone app? It's pretty cool!

  6. I just recently purchased OPI's Strawberry Margarita and it's adorable! That perfect pink color for summer toes!!

  7. Thanks for creating your blog, Brooke! I am lost when it comes to beauty tips :) I am a huge fan of OPI Miami Beet and Los Cabos Coral.

  8. I think your blog is great. It cracks me up too, because I know you and can picture you rummaging through Sephora or Target! I can also that messy little travel size drawer of yours in my head. You're so beautiful so it's great you're sharing your secrets! I think my favorite OPI shade is Cajun Shrimp. It screams SUMMER! Guess I need to find a favorite winter shade now...

  9. My favorite is Mod About You but I'm loving Ate Berries in the Canaries!

    By the way, you're my hero. The dry shampoo post was the best tip ever. I use it at least 4 times a week!

  10. So I love you and your blog!! I am excited about your first give away! One of my favorite OPI nail polish colors is bubble bath and second honeymoon. I really love any neutral pink/nude/peachy shades! I have been thinking about trying a shade like Over the Taupe but have not branched out there yet :). You know me I have a hard time making those major life decisions!! :)

  11. Love your blog! I rarely paint my nails b/c I'm a nail biter but I always get the reddest red I can find for my toes. The hubby's often calls it hooker red:)

  12. I think I should win just based on the fact that I have answered your many blogging questions.. PS. I do love any good OPI shade!

  13. I love "I'm Indi-a mood for love" on my toes. Such a great summer color! ~Janene

  14. I like "ate berries in the canaries" or whatever it is!!!! Those crazy OPI names. I wanna win!!! Please! :)

    Love you!!!


  15. Bet you thought I never looked at your blog huh?
    I occasionally check up on you baby girl!!


  16. YOU DON'T KNOW JACQUES! (Is my fav)

  17. Brooke!! I am loving your blog! It makes me want to start one of my own! My favorite opi color right now is big hair big nails. :)

  18. GFC: evil_eva12
    I don't have a favorite nail polish from OPI because I love them all but OPI is definitely my favorite nail polish brand ! I love the wide brush !

  19. I actually don't have a favorite shade or brand, so obviously I need to win the most!

  20. My favorite is Arm Candy! Love this color!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
