Well it’s certainly been a while since I last made a post! Christmas day, actually. Things have been sort of hectic since then though, what with my trip to Georgia, squeezing in time with my family, then my trip from hell (otherwise known as my return to England). Seriously though, that trip truly was awful. Delay after delay, a missed flight, a re-booked flight to a completely different destination, a couple of train rides and, to top the whole thing off, a lost suitcase.
Now, the worst thing about that lost suitcase is that it actually held all of the polishes from the last round of nail mail that I posted, in addition to the nail mail that I really wanted to show off today. They were the last little bit that I had gotten while in the US, plus the ones I had gotten for Christmas. I’m completely scared that I’m never going to see anything from that suitcase again, because while it’s legal to put nail polishes in your checked baggage, it is not legal to airmail them overseas. So if my bag is found and sent to me…well, customs could destroy everything. And I had quite a bit besides nail polish in there too…
BUT! I am trying to remain optimistic about the fate of my bag, so am going to show my newest pretties off regardless of their potentially dark future!
In no particular order, I have here two OPI collections (Coca Cola and Nordic), 5 Glam Polishes (Hakuna Matata, Helms Deep, Arctic Freeze, Frost Flower, and Whirlwind), and the first three polishes from SquareHue’s Decades Collection (Gibson Girl 1900, First Flight 1903, Victorian End 1909). Plus a replacement for my broken LynBDesigns Why Meddle? which is something I was incredibly happy about! Until, ya know, the suitcase it was in mysteriously vanished…
I also got a handful of polishes for Christmas, of course, courtesy of my mom. Two Girly Bits Cosmetics polishes (Darkly Dreaming and Get Weaponized), four Darling Diva Polishes (Gypsy, Nightbird, She Had a Fat Ass Then, She Has a Fat Ass Now, and one Christmas-themed one I don’t know the name of (I think it might be Tis the Season)), and three Serum No 5 polishes (Burning Orchid, Light Speed, and Atomic Peach).
I unfortunately didn’t get the chance to try out too many of the polishes being mentioned here, so I’m seriously crossing my fingers that my bag turns up in the UK safe and sound. One of the polishes I did get to try, though, was Girly Bits Darkly Dreaming. It’s a dark green jelly with a copper shimmer, which I felt was appropriate to wear for my hunting trip back in December. It was opaque at 3 coats, which is what’s shown here.
This is a gorgeous polish, and I really had no problems at all with application. It was on my nails for about four days before I took it off, and the shimmer actually kept me pretty entertained while I was in middle-of-nowhere Georgia with no wifi. Yeah, I have a short attention span. 😛
Sorry about the picture and complaint heavy post, by the way! I promise the next post won’t be as long and filled with my stress. 😉
