Today I bring to you the past week's nail mail and mini nail haul from yesterday!
First up is a swap received from the lovely Alyssa C who is part of the Birthday Club I am in. I asked her to send to me OPI's "Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em" and "Big Hair...Big Nails" and Zoya's "Penelope". The two OPI's are from last year's Texas Collection and are jelly polishes - being the huge fan of jellies that I am I have no idea why it has taken me so long to add these to my stash! They look gorgeous! Zoya Penelope is a dusty rose pink and too looks gorgeous! Thank you Alyssa!
Secondly, I received a swap from Christine who I arranged a swap with through PAA. I asked Christine to send to me Zoya's "Maisie" and "Chloe", OPI's "Metallic for Life", China Glaze's "Foie Gras", "Dress Me Up" and "Electrify" and she also kindly included an extra Sinful Colors "Green Ocean". I absolutely love all three flakies and cannot wait to give them a whirl! The OPI is the only one I liked from the Nicki Minaj Collection and the China Glaze's were the ones I wanted most from the new Hunger Games Collection 2012. Thank you so much Christine really looking forward to our next swap!
Yay! My Dollish Polish polishes from Etsy arrived today! I ordered "Welcome to Rapture" and Hip Hop Hippity Hop" (the new formula) and they both look so gorgeous I cannot wait to try them out! I also ordered a China Glaze "Liquid Crystal" from the new Prismatics Collection and am due to receive some more in a swap very soon! I can't wait to see what the other Prismatics are like as this one looks stunning!
A few purchases ... Orly's "Passionfruit" a super bright neon pink I ordered from www.cheapsmells.co.uk for £2.99 (including free delivery). I thought this was a bargain the bottle is a huge 18ml! This arrived today! Also "Gelous" which Miagi from the Birthday Club kindly purchased on my behalf as I wanted it to even out my glitter polishes. Thank you so much Miagi! Yesterday, I purchased GOSH's "Metallic Purple" this looks just wow!!! I cannot wait to get stamping with this!
And last but not least ... I had been lusting after the new Models Own Hed Kandi Collection since I laid eyes on them! Finally, I phoned a Boots store yesterday and they confirmed they had them in - I was so excited! From the collection I purchased "Disco Heaven", "Hedonist" and "Ibiza Mix" - the glitters look gorgeous and I will be swatching Ibiza Mix tomorrow so be sure to look back then! I purchased them from Boots and they are £5 each but on offer at the moment 3 for 2! "Hedonist" is a beautiful bright neon coral/orange - I am really loving neons at the moment so expect to see a lot of neon nail of the days! This is my recent colour kick! I will definitely be buying up the rest of the Hed Kandi Collection too!
What do you think? Any preferences what you would like to see my swatch out of this bunch? x
