Nail Polish Swap Reveal

I was so excited when I saw the sign- ups for a nail polish swap on Lindsay's Sweet World Blog.  Anyone who knows me know that I have a thing for nail polish and decorated nails.

For this swap I was paired up with Pamela from The Lady of The House Speaking we exchanged a few e-mails back and fort about our likes and dislikes and just hit it off.  We realized it was such a small world when we discovered a close friend of hers lives just one town over and she'd actually driven through my town a few times.  We are such a tiny dot on the map that it really was incredible!


I had the best time putting her gift package together and honestly, I don't think Pamela could have found a gift that was more perfect for me.

She did apologize for forgetting the card she had to go with the whole package sitting on her kitchen counter but I know we can all relate to that.

Anyway.. onto the goodies!

We had a $20 budget before shipping and I think you'll agree she put it to good use.

When I opened the package my oldest son asked me why I had gotten a book for a nail polish exchange.  But I just loved this box.  Not only do I LOVE to read but I went to Paris in high school and have always loved the Eiffel Tower!



Inside I found some lovely summary nail polish, some amazing Buttersctoch lotion that I immediately tried and fell in love with, a nail file with some pretty pink flowers and a sheet of nail sticker gems.

As soon as I snapped a few photos I painted my nails.  The color is just beautiful and perfect for spring!


I loved that the gem stickers had seashells, starfish and other fun designs.

Sorry the photo isn't that great it's hard to take pictures without some sort of reflection
when the background paper is so shiny
 Once my nails were dry I did try out a few gems too.  I just love how fancy my nails look (even though I do need to clean up a few spots of polish on my cuticles).


The following week I had to try out the other color too.

    1. This was so much fun. I don't think I've used any other color on my nails since I received these wonderful polishes.
