FINALLY! My first Swap

This is the beginning of my many posts about "the swap"....I have so many to compliment and thank - and some from many months ago! Here is my very first, real live swappy thingy...and it was with Rebecca from Nails Etc. Her blog is so fresh and honest - I love the style of her writing....As I read her posts, I close my eyes and go to London with her... (not in a creepy, American sort of way, LOL)...London is one of my most favorite cities.

I really didn't know how much fun or how addictive this whole swap lifestyle would be, but man, am I having a blast!

So here are the photos of what she kindly sent "across the pond":

(this is the mass)

L to R: Boots ~ (Natural Collection) "Black Cherry", Bourjois ~ "So Lacque - Bleu Violet",
Miss Sporty ~"Clubbing Colors" (I think) and Sleek ~ (Nailed Polish) "Poison Ivy".

Beauty UK ~ "Electric Purple" and "Lilac Girl"

Barry M ~ (my firsts!!!) NP 210, Racing Green, Raspberry and NPP 1.

Boots 17 ~ "Orange Soda", "Pink Grapefruit" and "Peacock"

Collection 2000 ~ "Spangles", "Intense" and "Button Moon"

MUA ~ Green Metallic (no label) and "Shade 8"

I really didn't know what to expect - but I sent the lovely Rebecca an email asking about the Beauty UK polishes she had reviewed on her blog - I offered to swap with her, and this is what I was surprised with! My swaps are many and my treasures great, but I have had the most fun getting "to know" the bloggers from these are all so kind and generous. From one little American gal, thanks.

    Rebecca's blog is really good as well! :)

  7. So many pretties! I'd love to see more of that insanely bright Collection 2000 colour :D

  8. I believe "Clubbing Colors" is the name of the latest Miss Sporty collection, they don't name their polish.

    Some of the bottles make me want to give up the no-buy I'm on :D
