Swap with Jen & Claire's Mood Polish

To start off with- I am not a crybaby in general. Example, I do NOT cry at wonderful girl gets awesomely handsome guy soppy movies, I do NOT cry at poor little doggies dying in kid's movies, or at college aged teenagers giving their cherised toys away movies and I don't NOT cry at movies about life long lovers dying in aged care homes movies.

BUT when I opened Jen's swap box, I got a little teary. How can a complete total stranger from the other side of the planet send me SOOOO MUCH stuff?? My best friends and HUSBAND never even get me stuff like this (sorry guys, but I know you never read my blog anyway) and I've never had ANYONE go out of their way before to make sure they got me presents they knew I wanted!

In this case, Jen went thru my wish list and posted me 30...yes, T.H.I.R.T.Y polishes that she knew I was after. Can you believe it?? My wish list was decimated in one swoop! Some of what I got: OPI's Alpine snow, Lincoln park, Wing It, Flit a bit, Cajun shrimp, Feng Shui. Orly's Bailamos, Haleys comet and mini Holiday set (yay!), Borghese Stellar Note!! All the Nubars I wanted including Forest, Peacock Feathers, Wildlife, Iris Dust, Conserve. Zoya Envy, which is divine and Claires mood polishes!

I was in such a dither, I just didn't know what to test first and in the end a mood polish won cause I had wanted Flirty/Shy for ages. I know you have seen a million pictures of it before but here it is MY way!

This polish was so much fun and I pretty much wasted a whole day running my hands under cold then hot water. When cold, the polish turns Flirty, which is a dark denim blue. When hot, it turns a Shy, bright Sea Blue.

Jen's blog can be found here, www.thepolishaholic.com. Thanks so much Jen for swapping with me...I hope you are as happy with your box as I am with mine. Yay for Jen!! xoxoxoxo
