OMG IT CAME GUYS IT CAME. And it is AWESOME: Judy, thank you SO MUCH for this! It's everything I possibly could have ever wanted; you are so kind.
So. I joined an Elfster polish bloggers' secret santa gift exchange, where the requirements were either twenty dollars on polish or two bottles. I hadn't expected nine--NINE--polishes, along with all the other goodies! (Note: I mean twelve, includin' the minis. :D)
Let's take a look:
A super-cute Ulta and OPI mini set of PINKS--just in time, too, since I'd been spending an inordinate amount of time gazing at pink polishes! (Dunno why. I'm usually not a pink person, but I am THRILLED to have these)
Vivid topcoat from colorclub, CHAINMAIL CHARM from DIAMOND COSMETICS, and a blue and pink bar glitter from Jesse's Girl
Two out of these three are surprises, but very pleasant indeed! I'm just about ready to shell money for a new topcoat just as this one came strolling by and that glitter looks so fantabulous! I want to wear this for new year's over black polish or something. It will be awesome.
A color club white creme ( no name ), CHINA GLAZE FOR AUDREY, and Nicole by OPI Shimmy Shimmer. Awesome. Needed a white creme, dreamed of For Audrey, and Shimmy Shimmer just...well, looks -amazing-. I think, judging from what I can see under my weak lamp, it's a dark purple with a light green duochrome. I really wanted a duochrome. Sigh. :D
CHINA GLAZE WAGON TRAIL, COLOR CLUB SEX SYMBOL, CHINA GLAZE 2NITE
Omg wagon trail. It is far more glorious in real life than in pitchers. Truth. It glimmers and glitters and tempts but truthfully I've had waaaay too much dark color in the past two weeks. It will have to wait. Sex Symbol looks awesome for parties, layering, and frankens (which is why I wanted it!) and 2nite! ANOTHER HOLO! I can't wait.
And she topped it all off with a grape-flavored gloss, a tootsie-roll lip balm (not pictured) and this awesome leopard print file. And see that white thing? That's FELT. The classic way of taking off glitter for the fussy personality! I've never had or used felt before, but you know that now I will! Ha! I can't keep away from the exclamation marks!
So. Judy. Judy Judy Judy. You are an incredible secret santa (and I just strolled through your blog, hah, and discovered little hints of what you got me in there) and such a wonderful person. This was a wonderful happy way to end what was a downer of a day (midterms, spills, general frowns and sad faces etc) and I can't wait to use all of these. You are amazing. I can't thank you enough. :)
