I'm glad you guys enjoyed my Veggie nail art from yesterday. I'm trying to make time for more nail art this week.
Today I want to show you some more nail polish I had in my possession before I became a nail polish fanatic.
Bubble Bath, Moroccan Melon, and Lincoln Park At Midnight.
This is 3 coats of OPI Bubble Bath.
OPI Bubble Bath is a sheer baby pink. You can see here there is a lot of visible nail line. BB is a good palate cleanser.
There are a couple different formulas for Bubble Bath. I have the pink based one but there is also a creamy off white version as well.
You can see how short the actual tip of my nail is. A woman I work with told me the other day that I had "long nails". In all actuality, it's just the size of my nail bed.
This is 3 coats of Moroccan Melon.
Moroccan Melon is an orangey pink coral creme. This is probably the oldest polish I have. It used to be my moms.
I can't say that I'm a big fan of coral polish so this one doesn't come out to play very often.
It's very shiny as well.
This is 2 coats of Lincoln Park At Midnight.
Lincoln Park At Midnight (which I always want to call Lincoln Park After Dark) is a blackened purple shimmer polish. It could have been a one coater if I had been more careful.
This is the polish that sparked my love for dark purples. :)
Argh! Ignore that tiny hair that somehow worked its way into my swatch.
I also owned these polishes, courtesy of my granny who was convinced that young Rachel only wanted to do French Mani's... Right...
Now onto my swap packages..
My first swap was with Swaafie! If you haven't checked out her blog- hop to it! She's incredibly creative and her posts always make me laugh.
Look at all the fun stuff she sent me! She sent me a ton of awesome candy and nail glitter/decals.
The polishes she sent me were:
BR 09, GOSH Rainbow, GOSH Holographic, Pieces Starry Sky, and La Femme Beauty Odyssey.
My second swap with a reader of the blog, Naomi!
She wanted to get a hold of some polish brands that are available in Michigan. I ended up swapping for non-nail polish related make up, so instead I'll show you how cute her package was!
Seriously, how freaking cute! I about died when I opened my package.
She also included these in her package. I'm in awe.
Finally, I swapped with Sara. She also has a great blog with some awesome nail art.
Here are the goodies she sent me:
Barry M Nail Effects, Barry M Dusky Mauve, Marry M Vivid Purple, Technic Shade 16, Technic Shade 27, Model's Own True Blue, and GOSH Holographic.
Me Me Me Pewter, two unnamed Red Herring polishes, Accessories Aztec, and Accessories Pink Spice.
I love swapping. :)
