Nail Mail!

When I saw swatches of the OPI exclusive for Ulta (I believe?) named Speak For Your-Elf! I was so sad I don't have access to pretties like these. I tweeted about it and soon I got a super sweet message from Kaylan saying she picked it up for me, including some other pretties! SO SO sweet! So, she sent the package and I waited. And I waited. And then I decided to wait a little more. Nothing came. After a few weeks I realised something. The address she had from me when we swapped wasn't my current address anymore... I went to my old address and nobody was home. Left a note and YAY! My package did arrive there and luckily the new resident still had it sitting there!

Now when I opened this I couldn't believe my eyes. Not only did she get me the OPI, but SEVEN other polishes as well! And Hershey Kisses. I looooooove Hershey Kisses!




The first polish I tried from this package was Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Fire Opal. Since it is SUPER sheer I layered one coat over Wet 'n Wild Black Crème and a stunning duochrome was born!

It does apply slightly unevenly but even though I suspected otherwise it dried quickly with my trustworthy Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer. The color shift truly was amazing!

Thanks Kaylan for this awesome package!

  6. Wow. I'm not very fond of black polishes, but it certainly does the trick with sheer polishes like this.

  12. I'm so glad that you posted this! I have this polish stashed away and had no idea that such a beauty was just begging to be used. I love duo-chromes, I'm definitely using this soon :D

  13. Yeah she kept all my mail that was still there! Supersweet <3.

    The polish is amazing and it didn't even take hours to dry which I expected a bit. For around 10 dollar you'll find one on eBay.. maybe a swap buddy can find you a set like this too at Ross?

  24. Oh thanks a lot! I'll have a look, even if I'm a little bit afraid of facing customs, though..that's because I usually don't buy on the net..Italy has many restrictions on polishes. mhm... *sad* :'(
