Hello Darlings! This is a kind of "theory" post, it'll be mainly about me babbling. You've been warned and you can run away now! lol!
Great things have outcome from my first giveaway, and I would like to share my thoughts with you.
Firstly I've got a huge amount of followers. Ok, I'm not secretly hoping that they'll remain my followers or read my posts. So I'm ready to see my followers numbers decrease in the next few days.
Secondly, the spreading word of giveaway has allowed me to get to know so many new blogs!! Thanks to this giveaway I'm now following 42 new blogs, besides the 172 that I already followed. Isn't that crazy??
I also learnt
that many people dedicate their bogs to giveaway hunting. Did not know that.
Finally, I seriously thought about what good could come out of a number of followers that aren't actually following you... it makes not sense, does it? So I came to the conclusion that next giveaway might need to have totally different rules.

Of course! I'm not forgetting about the question I asked in rafflecopter that many of you answered: What would you change/improve/add to my blog?
So I reviewed every single comment and I summary your answers in the list below. I care about your advice so I thought it would only be right to make a post with my answers and decisions (which are written in purple next to the requests you've done).
  • use always the same lighting for swatching, buy a day lamp
    I'm not at that stage in blogging. If I ever make a living of this I'll surely be caring about that.Not by the moment.
  • more filter tabs
    I agree, and have already done that
  • add prices and other details on the nail polishes
    I don't add prices because in Switzerland all is much more expensive, so prices are not representative.Besides my Swiss readers are really few, and the rest of my readers would just get all messed -up with currencies.
  • repost them missing photos
    I can't see where photos are missing, sorry! If you see missing photos please tell me on which post!!
  • More nail art
    I try to post nail art at least twice a week, unfortunately I do not always succeed. That's the best I can do for the moment.
  • More stamping
    I'll be doing more for sure.
  • change the background :)
    I agree and I've already chaged it
  • more reviews of Essence collections!
    You bet!
  • interact with your followers!
    This is something I love doing, I try very hard to answer all comments and visit my fellow bloggers, but sometimes I do not have the time! I still try to catch up later...
  • include some nail art tutorial
    I do not feel quite ready to do that, mostly because my nail art is usually a mess without any serious technique, lol!
  • change the style of the title!
    I like the style of my title like it is now, sorry!
  • All you need is to let everyone to be happy with your posts :)
    That is something I will never succeed in doing, so I'll not even try to make everyone happy. Sorry again!
  • "Week in photos "
    Interesting. I might do that because I like reading this kind of posts. Though I'm not the kind of girl to be snapping pictures of everything, specially because my cellphone pictures suck. But if I ever get a better cell phone, that might change!!
  • comparison posts
    I like to do them, whenever it's possible. But my collection is not THAT big, and the polishes I buy I try not to get colours I already own.
  • website designed by yourself would be better.
    I'm sorry, but I'm not capable of doing that!
  • more eco-bio products reviews!
    I'm not really in the "bio" trend, and as much as I like some bio products I don't have enough experience with other bio brands to compare them, sorry!
  • some Fotd
    I can't promise FOTD could happen in this blog. I'm not happy with the way my skin looks, and then there's the self picture taking problem, the lighting, etc. Too many obstacles. I might try an EOTD at the most!
  • Talk about nail treatments.
    I've been thinking to do it for ages. It's in my to do list!
  • medium-sized pictures sometimes instead of the larger ones
    I quite like XL photos, but I can see it could be disrupting the "aesthetic" balance. I'll try to change that.
  • more haul post!!!!!!
    I'll do that as soon as the NBB is finished!
  • indie polishes
    As soon as I buy some, I'll definitely be showing them in here!
  • post more photos :)
    I thought I've already posted too many!
  • posting more often
    I do my best to post regularly. I already post 4-5 times per week, can't do more for now. Sorry.
  • swatch and reviews of new products
    Would love to! specially upcoming-products! anyone knows a cosmetics PR that would contact me??
  • news about new collections
    I don't like posting every press release that comes to my e-mail box. I never read those on other blogs either!
  • more giveaways like this one
    haha! at least you've been honest! There'll be more giveaways, but not during NBB period.
  • invest in having your own domain
    I'm afraid I won't do that for the moment.
Great things have outcome from this giveaway, and have to start planning the next! if you red until here, you're my hero!! lol.
What do you think about giveaways in general? what aim are they supposed to serve? I'm looking forward to your comments.
Love,
Nati
