Polish swap has arrived :D

Hey, so finally one of my packages has arrived and it was the one I was most excited about :) myself and the lovely Bethany from A plethora of Nails did a big polish swap, I sent her two Butter Londons and she sent me an Opi and Zoya that I wanted and then we decided that we would go out and buy each other a few polishes from our local shops ie Boots, for a polish culture swap ;). 
I was so excited when I was told I had a package eeee it was THE package so I ripped it open (quite literally) and three mini bottles rolled out of the tissue paper, they are so cute!! I want to say a massive thank you to Bethany, it has been really nice getting to know you better, I hope we continue to stay in contact :) I really love everything that you sent me :D! 


L-R Fruit Smoothie by Confetti, Lets Talk by Sinful colors, Phoebe by Zoya, Disco Ball by Sally Hansen, Trust Fund Baby by Spoiled, Sparkled by Wet N Wild, Battery Park Purple by NYC, Swimsuit Nailed it! By OPI and the three superrrr cute minis an unnamed Bon Bons (?) and HD Nails and This is it by Sinful Colors. 

How cool!! I am so in love with Swimsuit, it's so gorgeous and weirdly I nearly bought Lets Talk by Sinful the other day I kept picking it up and then I put it down, great minds and all that ;). 
The one that I have on right now is the pink glitter! I can't believe I'm typing this but I was drawn to the pink glitter! I tried it on my nail wheel first and decided to put it over the top of one of my only pinks lol. 
This is one easy coat of Rimmel's Style Hunter, it has a strong fine silver shimmer that make it have a pearlised finish.
I think this is one coat of Sparkled, I'm not sure though, this is in the shade as it were.

Two coats with flash

Two coats in sunlight.
My bf really wanted me to wear this one, I was attracted to it too but it was mainly him :P I do like it, Sparkled is a mix of small pink glitter and larger silver glitter, it is very bling as all glitter is but this is so sparkly like its namesake, haha. It is quite gritty, one thick coat of SH ID sorts that out :). One thing I do know is that I can't stop looking at my nails, they're pretttty, so far so good :P. Good choice Bethany!

On a side note I discovered today that Barry M now do Magnetic polish! There were about 8 slots but only two had polish in, one was red with a striped magnet and the one I got was grey with a circular waved pattern, I know another is blue with a star as that is what the woman in the promo is wearing! I'll be sure to check back soon to see what the others are, they cost £4.99 which is steep for Barry M but I guess these types of polishes are two in one and you can switch magnets if you get them all :). I'm quite excited to try it out to be honest I wasn't really feeling magnetic polish when it first came out but I am seeing the fun in it now :P. 

Thank you again Bethany :) I hope you're having as much fun with my package and I hope everyone else enjoyed this swap post :)
