Sweet Swap and Haul

Merry Monday!

First the great swap I did with Stephanie at Lacquer Lady

I specifically asked for the IsaDora graffiti polish in black, and generally told her what colors i liked.  Perfect match! I'm still waiting to complete her box, it will definitely go out this week! Thanks Stephanie!

She also added this super cute hand made necklace.  I admired a similar necklace on her site, and can you believe she included it in my swap!? I didn't even tell her I liked it, this was meant to be :):)

Here is the graffiti polish I immediately swatched it, over a holo I was wearing.

The pinkie is applied top to tip,.the ring finger is applied from left to right. Two different looks, one great polish! I'm gonna have fun with this one!

Now for the recent Hauls.

Dusty #1, by my job

Yep...I bought 6 of the same color..what color you ask?

A holo.... by the name of "Blue Moon Lagoon", I was so shocked to see it in the discount bin that I only bought one, because I thought for sure it was a dud...until I stepped outside, and saw the holo goodness in the sunlight!.

Then I turned my tail back into the store and bought 5 more.  I will use them for swaps, frankens and giveaways :):)

Dusty #2 in the valley

China Glaze, Rapture, Awakening, CCCourage, Sci-Fi and Blue Island Iced Tea

Orly Pixie Dust, Star of Bombay, Fantasea and Iron Butterfly

OPI- DS Glow, Wing It! and Russian Navy Suede

Zoya Raine and a Milani I picked up on the way home at CVS, from the Haute Value collection, Dress Maker.

It's supposed to be another Chanel Jade dupe, see the pretty green shimmer inside? :)

Thanks for dropping by!
Pin It!

Audrey said...

Great Haul!! Isn't dusty hunting the best?? It's like a box of chocolates, you never what your going to get!! You did really well!!

Musicalhouses said...

OMG YOU HAVE THE GRAFFITI POLISHES! Can I just say how insanely jealous I am?! I guess I could do the same thing with thick black polish and a toothpick (maybe? I don't know), but it just wouldn't be the same!

On a less jealous note, I also have Orly Fantasea and Iron Butterfly and those are good picks! :D

Katrina said...

gosh! what an awesome haul! that graffiti one & the OPI ones...just awesome ;)

nailgalore said...

I love the blue moon lagoon! I want:-) Gonna get them right away if its available around here:-)

Unknown said...

@ Musicalhouses- It is pretty awesome, I think I may do another international swap so I can get the other colors! :)

@Katrina-Thank U! :)

@nailgalore- Blue moon lagoon came out in 2003, and the collection is very hard to find, that's why I was so shocked to see a basket full of this one color. If you find any, please share the pics, I'd love to see the other colors :)

Great hauls and swap!
