I really just recently got into doing "secret" swaps with a few of my nail polish friends/groups. Most recently I participated in a few swaps but only one secret/surprise swap. Sweet as pie, Sarah, had my name in our secret swap group and spoiled the hell out of me with some candies and a TON of polish!
As far as the polish goes I received a MAJOR lemming/wishlist polish, Hits Mari Moon - Unconventional All That Glitters! - Valentine Massacre! Woo! I also received Duri - Fallen Angel, Huemorista - Shamrockin' (another that I have wanted!), and some of her own handmade polish/frankens... Deep In The Meadow (looooove the Hunger Games reference!), Brings May Flowers, You Give Me Fever[Lacquer] (yes she did! she made a reference to my nail polish line's brand name FEVERlacquer... so clever SOOOOOO cool!), and last but DEFINITELY not least Zombie Prom (ohhh yeaaah I love me some zombies!).
I was so surprised at all of the lovely frankens Sarah made for me in this swap and all of the FANTASTIC polish and 2 lemmings squished to a pulp :) I had to do a blog post on this swap... I for sure will be doing secret/surprise swaps more often. It is nice knowing what you are getting but it is even better being surprised and in my case, blown away!
soooooo drool worthy I love this super sheer red jelly base color with bright red and black round/hex glitter and fine red glitter. I am in love with this polish sooooo soooo much :) Can't wait to try this over Curator's Crimson (Finger paints) or oh oh maybe Sooki (zoya)!!!
Huemorista - Shamrockin, oxidized army green metallic base with gold and green fine glitters throughout. I really love greens and I was eyeing this one up when it first became available and never bit the bullet. So glad she included this in the swap it is going to be one of my favorites I think.
I'm no Trace Face Philes, but this is best I could get at a macro shot haha
I want MORE MORE MORE of these Hits Mari Moon! MORE MORE MORE! I NEEDZ DEM ALL! I knew I loved duo and multi chromes but oh my goodness if I didn't before...
Hits Mari Moon - Unconventional, a purple wine meets red wine in all of its glory. I think I will be visiting shop.llarowe.com very soon for the rest of this set!
Hits - Jazz.... OH MY GREEN FLAKIE! I have this one in my stash currently so this one will be going to my sister. She just started collecting nail polish this year and I keep adding more and more and more to her stash. I'm thinking she's gotta be running out of room by now haha. I'm so proud! hah oh my
Duri - Fallen Angel, at first glance I was like oh nice deep purple kinda like Julep - Gayle (my favorite opaque purple cream)... um no. This is really pretty it's got red wine shimmers in it! Sooooo pretty!!!
I have another from this Angels & Demons collection from Duri, of course its a jelly (my favorite) From Dusk Till Dawn, and another I have been eyeing up from that collection is Kingdom of Shadows omg that one looks great too.
Sarah's franken - You Give Me Fever (lacquer), I just love how she put a play on the name with FEVERlacquer :) so cool! This of course is AMAZING it's a flakie and I love love love my flakies! Its a deep royal purple base with red/gold/green flakie and it is GORGEOUS! I really love it!
Sarah's franken - Zombie Prom, omg omg omg zombie nail polish to add to my collection! I'll go put this with my Zombie Zest, Zom-body to love.. etc etc zombie named nail polish I have haha. I am obsessed with zombies :) and it spills over into my nail polish collecting much like how I collect any polish with Violet in the name, and anything Doctor Who or Firefly, haha well yes zombies are in there too! This is cool its a pale irish green with holo and greenish gold bits throughout
Sarah's franken - Brings May Flowers, this is a stunning flakie... for some reason my camera couldn't focus on it... I need to take it for a fix I'm thinking.... but it is gorgeous it's a light baby blue semi opaque base with golden flakies and shimmers throughout. I love flakies so much this is awesome. It actually really looks like a Robin's egg! I wonder if my mom would let me paint her nails with this, her name is Robin :)
Sarah's Franken, Deep In The Meadow... HELLO HUNGER GAMES NAME! I love the lullaby and I love this polish! At first I thought of Lacquistry - Casandra's Peacock (named after yours truly, matter of fact) and then when I looked at the bottles close together, Deep In The Meadow is sooo much more! It has large bright greens and medium glitters in there and some holo bits too. It really is sooooo pretty and I will be wearing this one and swatching it this week :)
Hope you enjoyed my share of my most recent secret/surprise swap! Hopefully soon I will have more to show you from future swaps!
