One of my blogger friends, Maria from Nails Made Simple was having a blog sale to clear out a bunch of polishes. She had a couple colors from my wishlist, and some things that were just too pretty to pass up! On Friday this box arrived in the mail:
Hmm, bubble wrap, huh?
Whoa, yes, that's a lot of bubble wrap! Haha I patiently unwrapped my way through most of the pieces...
Which turned out to be...
Left to Right: Nubar - White Polka Dots, OPI - Save Me mini (on top of), Wet 'n Wild - Diamond in the Rough, Color Club - Space Case, Dare to Wear - Disc Jockey, Milani Jewel FX - Teal, love & beauty - Rust, Revlon - Starry Pink.
2 empty bottles!! Jade - Twinkling Purple and Martian Sands, 2 Hot Topic polishes with no names, and an unnamed blue polish that yes...
Is in a rose-shaped bottle!! How cool is this? I feel so fortunate to own this because it is really unique to me. When I move to my new place it is going to used as decor in my sewing/crafting/nail polish/pony collection/walk-in-closet room! =D
Maria very kindly sent me 3 free polishes, they are the two Jade brand ones and the teal Hot Topic glitter. She hoped I would like them, but I don't. I love them! Haha, she did a great job picking them out. The pale purple glitter is just perfect, and while Martian Sands isn't something I would normally reach for I think it is really pretty and I will definitely try it. Plus the name is so cool! The Hot Topic polish reminds me of another mini bottle of an L.A. Color polish I have, but I don't think it is a dupe, just similar.
This was a really great haul for me. I got a wonderful assortment of polishes for dirt cheap, scratched a few things off my wishlist, and everything was shipped securely and quickly! Maria still has some polishes left for sale, I suggest taking a look at her post. =)
I love buying second-hand and being able to "adopt" things rather than just buy what I want new from a store... what do you think?
