Several months ago I saw the press release for the Essence Vampire's Love collection. I commented on the post another blogger made, and she instantly offered to get them for me if she was able to find 2 sets (one for her & one for myself). In the states, we rarely get the collections and if we do, you can usually only find 2-3 of them. Lalica at Nails For Fun said they would be releasing in November. I knew that would be perfect. Not only was my birthday in November, but I knew I'd have some birthday money to fund the swap.
We didn't set any limit, but pretty much guessed. I offered some that I already had and looked at her wishlist so I could add more, and try to get as many of the US polishes as I could off her list and I had a blast doing it. I'm totally a giver and love getting things for people that I know they want.
You can click HERE to see what I got for her. I was surprised when my package arrived before hers did....AND it got here on Christmas Eve. It was like a bonus present. I opened the bubble mailer to this....
|Isn't that box too cute? Imma keep it forever!|
|The polishes and these yummy Ki-Ki candies. They're like apple flavored Starburst.|
And if all that weren't enough, I got this pretty ring. not sure which polish it is, but it's adorbs.
|Lol, yes I was in my Guinness jammies.|
I have these in my bucket of polishes to swatch & try. I've already worn Flormar U08, with Finger Paints Motley over it, and loved it. I'll be doing that again once I swatch everything. I really can't wait to try that S-he, because it looks so much more brown in the bottle, but red in the picture.
