In which I get Canadian presents!


Last month awesome Rachel organised a blog swap, which could be international if we fancied! I was paired up with Karen, who has a brilliant nail blog, and is from miles and miles and miles away in Canada!

I was so excited when I got home and saw that my downstairs neighbour had taken the parcel in for me, so no trek to and wait at the collections office! Inside were lots of happy making things!


These little beads are for the caviar (is that what they’re called?) manicures… so will definitely be trying that soon!

Then next out the box were these bad boys! I tried them all on immediately (over my luckily fairly non offensive nails) and took the deep bluey colour with me when I got my infills done later that week! The top right sparkly number is adorning my toe nails, and the top left looks AMAZING but is notoriously hard to take a good picture of, in every angle the flakes are a different colour!

Then these two gorgeous bracelets, some funky chewing gum, earrings! (wore the sparkly bows yesterday for a monday pick me up!) and the little mountie is attached to my key ring already! Did anyone else ever watch Due South?


Anyway, here are the colours very briefly applied, and the black flakey one I am saving for when I have charged my proper camera to attempt to do it some justice!

So a HUGE thank you to Karen, I hope once my package gets to you you like what you got too! It should be there any day soon!

    I’m really glad you liked the package!! I’ve got ants n my pants waiting for mine. I swear My package must have been the last on the plane (boat??) before right before take off, bc I have no idea how it arrived so quickly. Espically since the nice lady at the PO warned me it would take awhile.
