Blogger Friends’ Nail Mail ~ yay!

Posted on: September 23, 2013

One of the great things I treasure about You Tube and the nail blogging community are the wonderful friends I have made all over the world. I recently received some nail mail from 2 great bloggers!

First up my friend Holly sent me some great polishes I do not have in my collection. Holly has a great nail blog and a great You Tube channel along with a great nail polish collection, which she is always adding to. Sounds a bit familiar?
I was reading Holly’s blog and I went to her “Wish List” page and noticed she had been wanting a Model’s Own called Indian Ocean polish from the UK, which has become a bit hard to find. I had this particular polish and knew I would not be using. It is a topper that changes the shade of the polish and makes it holographic. It’s really pretty but just not for me. So I emailed Holly and told her I would be happy to send to her. I’d much rather someone who would appreciate it have it, otherwise it would just sit on my shelf. Long story short I sent her the Model’s Own and maybe a few more? I don’t remember what all I sent her.
Being so sweet as she is she sent me some polishes I had on my wish list.

From left to right in the picture above she sent an H & M polish called Miss Stone Heart, a lovely neutral putty color, a purple polish from Sweden by a brand called Anny, Glamorous Girl, and on the end 2 Calvin Klein polishes. The white one is a great topper to add a little bit of sparkle,to any polish and the blue one can be worn alone or as a topper.
I’ve been having fun playing with these. I have left the 2 Calvin Klein out and it has been fun trying them on over the top of different colors.
Thank You so much Holly! I live in such a small town I would never be able to find the CK polishes or the others, for that matter. Please check out Holy’s blog and subscribe to her You Tube channel. I know you will like her as much as I do!

Next up are some polishes I just received today from my friend Carla who lives in Germany and writes a great nail blog featuring mostly CHANEL, Dior, and all other brands of polish. She has an extensive CHANEL collection and is a great place to look up swatches of CHANEL, even old CHANEL polishes.

As I said I’ve just received these today and haven’t had time for proper swatches but I wanted to show you.
From left to right, Catrice (a German nail polish brand) in Dirty Berry, Florallilac LE Eve in Bloom, Allure another LE Thrilling Me Softly and Occult from the same collection. On the far right are 2 Manhattan polishes in Cafe Beaute and Purple Poetry. Gorgeous … Every one of them. I can’t wait to wear and I think the first one I will try will be the Floralilac from the Eve in Bloom LE collection.
You can find Catrice nail polishes on Amazon from $5. This link showed a pretty good selection of colors. I highly recommend Catrice brand, it is truly one of my favorite brands.
I was first introduced to Catrice by my friend Nicky, who lives in Ireland. She also has a great You Tube channel. Her channel is all about the nails and I hope you check her out and subscribe to her channel as well.

a huge Thank You to Carla! When you said you’d found a couple more Catrice you were sending me I didn’t expect this. Thank you, I appreciate it so much!

πŸ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

That’s a great post, so many new additions to your stash. πŸ™‚ I also love the Calvin Klein ones. As for Anny, I’ve heard that they have a great formula, so I guess you can’t wait to try them all.
So happy to read that you like the Catrice and Manhattan ones. πŸ™‚


Thanks again Carla! Xoxo

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
