This chapter of my collection is heavy with gifts from friends. This is why I like this wheel so much, pretty colors, not all the same colors. As you all know I tend to buy the same color over and over again! 😝
That’s part of why it is so much fun to receive polish from my friends on my birthday. I get different brands that I don’t have access to and I get the best colors this way.

When looking at this wheel of gorgeousness there are a couple of colors that immediately pop, one is from China Glaze For Audrey

The other one is the Pink Sterling Rose from Orly. My friend April sent me quite a few Orly polishes because I told her I didn’t have any Orly. Orly is her favorite brand so she sent me these, along with a couple of others.

My favorites of those is, well, all of them. They are all beautiful. I just took off Fowl Play. I love to wear the Sterling Rose with the Buried Treasue just on each accent nail. Looks so pretty with my rose gold watch and it looks good with MK handbag as well. I also love Go Go Pink from China Glaze. This was purchased with a kit containing the polish, a Seche Vite top coat and a little angel charm. Part of the proceeds went to breast cancer research. I still have the little angel charm on my key chain.



And finally, one of my top 5 polishes of all time would have to be Cords by China Glaze. I like the dirty purple, sandy, goldy color of this polish. As the light hits it goes from an white to dark asphalt color. Just my kind of polish.

    The marathon continues with Part 6 coming soon. You will be amazed and delighted by selections from Model’s Own, CND, a Gosh or 2, and more fabulous polishes you won’t want to miss.
    Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate your support.
    💅Remember to Stay Calm and Paint your Nails!

In the mail yesterday I received the sweetest birthday present. Indie sent me 4 bottles of polish. I don’t have any of these brands and I’m so excited to try them. The colors are great and not like anything I have. Which is good!
Starting on the left, CND Asphalt, CND Dark Ruby, Sinful Colors Dream On and MAC Russian Red.


Indie knows I have an ‘obsession’ for William and Kate, she sent me a couple of post cards and a magnet with W and K photos. I love those, Indie. Thank You!
She also sent 2 beauty diary sheet masks. I used one last night and I loved it. It felt very soothing on my skin.
I painted my nails with the MAC Russian Red. I was thinking this might be too much red, so I did one of my half & half manicures with Estée Lauder Rosa Rosa to go along with Russian Red.

I must say, I feel very grown up and lady like today. I think I should call my girlfriends, get dressed up, put on some proper shoes, and go to a fancy, schmancy type of restaurant for tea. What? If only there was a place like that in my town, I’d be there. Of course, I would change my shoes. Somehow these shoes don’t go with my nails today.

Thank you so much, Indie. I really appreciate this! I love everything you sent. It’s people like you that I’m so glad to call my friend. 🙂
**Updated Photo **
I’m trying to get a better photo so show how pretty this polish is. I’m sorry it this is the best I could do, it’s kind of cloudy here today.
