Nail Mail

Hi girls,

I've had quite a lot of nail mail recently, so this post is to show you a little bit of what I received: 

First one up is from a swap with Kaki from Glitterobsession.com. You gotta love a girl that has a blog with a name like that, right? :D 

Anyway, I received four cool polishes from her: 

Maybelline: Amethyst Ablaze, Purple Icon, Purple Possibilies.
Color Club: Starry Temptress Topcoat

Amathyst Ablaze is a really pretty metallic polish, which I intend to use for stamping. Purple Icon is a reddish purple which is going to look fab on my toe nails, and Purple Possibilities was surprisingly enough a crackle. I was like: "I wonder what shredded means..." then I tried it on, and was "Oh, it means crackle!" LOL 
The Starry Temptress topcoat has been on my wish list in like forever, so I am very pleased to find room for that amongst my other Color Club polishes!

Thank you Kaki, for providing me with these pretties! 

Next swap up was with Kristin from The Manicured Monkey.

Like Kaki, she also sent me really cool polishes. 

Essie: Shine of the times, China Glaze peppermint cuticle oil, Milano Jewel FX: Fuchsia

A flakie and a glitter! And cuticle oil that I've been looking at for a long time, but have hesitated to buy. It smells fantastic and it feels great, so this bottle will be used up for sure.
 

Zoya: Reva and Julieanne
These are my first Zoyas and I'm thrilled. If they look just anywhere near as good on the nails as in the bottle, then they are definitely not going to be my last ones.

Nubar: Reclaim, Gem and Indigo Illusion
Nubars! I love that brand. Reclaim has been on my wish list for a very long time now. And glitters and multichromes are always welcome in my stash.

Let's take a closer look at Reclaim and Gem, but this time in the sun:

Nubar: Reclaim and Gem
Now it's more obvious why Reclaim has been a lemming, right? It's a gorgeous holo. And Gem turned out to be full of holo glitter. Nice!!

Kristin also added extras for me: 

Sally Hansen: Salon Effects

Nail polish strips with glitter. These are my very first nail polish strips, so that'll be fun to try.

She was also kind enough to add hand lotions and nail foil:

Goodies!
And she added one polish more. I can't show you that one though, because I've got secret plans with that. ;)

Big thanks to Kristin for sending such pretty polishes my way!


I also shopped a bit myself. I bought some Sation polishes: 

Sation: Prettiest Player, Summer Night Sparkle, Most Hue-nique, Miss Popular
I am very impressed with Sation's new polish line. There are so many cool polishes that I'd like to buy. But I only bought these four glitters for now! 

Last nail mail up is polishes from A England. I've been wanting some of their polishes for ages, so when they had their last promotion sale I finally gave in and bought five: 

A England: Perceval, Avalon, Lady of the Lake, Tristam, Saint George
Saint George was not a part of the promo sale, but I've been eyeing him since the first time I saw him swatched, and I just had to have him! He's absolutely fabulous! ♥

That's it for this time, girls. I hope you enjoyed the show :)
I'm having a luxury problem here: I don't know which polish to try first!

  10. I vote to see St George real soon! I have only one A England, Sabra (Tristam's Tears)(I think?) and really am lemming for St George (maybe because it's my brother's name, LOL)!

    Enjoy all of your goodies!
