Nail Mail from Elsa

Another nail mail post! I just love these posts!!

I did a swap with Elsa from "Like a Candy Shop", who lives in Italy. I must admit that I had been looking very much forward to this swap, because I didn't really know what to expect. I don't know which polishes they sell in Italy, but I was sure she would send something pretty, because I had seen all the beauties on her blog. 

But when the mail man finally arrived, I got very disappointed. Not because of what she sent - but because this is what the envelope looked like: 


Someone had cut the envelope open! And I knew that there was 6 polishes on the way to me, so I was very disappointed to find that there were only 4 polishes in the envelope! I wish no good for people who steal nail polishes!!

But anyway. Here's what the remaining four looked like, all wrapped up nicely:


I unwrapped them eagerly, and I was thrilled to see what it was: 

Catrice: Dirty Berry, debbY: Color Play 80, Kiko: 277 and 341.

I love them all! And Elsa has been so kind to promise me to re-send the two missing polishes, which I obvioulsy don't know what is, but I'm sure they're just as gorgeous!

So thanks, Elsa, for doing this swap with me! <3

  1. What a nice swap, but how very annoying that the envelope was open. Normally Post Danmark do tape letters/shipments if they are torn open....
    But the 4 that made it are gorgeous!!

    1. I was devastated when I saw the envelope. I've received so many polishes in the mail, and this has never happened before. I've had a few incidents with broken bottles, but never bottles that have disappeared. :/
      I know about the gorgeousness! I'm thrilled :)

    But anyway, this 4 polishes looks very interesting! :)

    1. I've never experienced that *something* was missing from my mails. If something was missing, it's been the entire mail, but it's been so long since that happened, that it doesn't really count anymore :D

  3. Oh, these polishes are great, but what a steal! Ok, it happened to me too that the package was opened and checked, but I always got everything. Shame on people who steal nail polishes!! =(

    1. I've only experienced that customs opened packages, but I never experienced that they took anything, and they've always sealed the packages back up with some special tape, to show who opened it.
      I agree: Shame on people who steal!! >:/

    1. Perhaps you can borrow it from your sister and try it out on yourself before you buy it? :)

    2. Yeah that's what I am planning to do :) We share polishes sometimes :)

    3. It must be cool to have a sister. I only have a brother, but he doesn't wear nail polish as far as I've seen :D

    4. It is cool to have a sister, I can't imagine my life without her :D
      That would be weird if your brother wore nail polish :)

    5. Haha, yes, it would be weird indeed! :D
      And also because he's a tall, big guy, not the least feminine at all! :D
