Polish Elf Nail Haul :D

I recently joined a Facebook group which was created for NZ Nail Polish Addicts. Not all of us are bloggers, but all of as ARE addicts. And enablers as it turns out – which is just wonderful. We also started a Polish Elf system – like a Secret Santa, basically. We posted stash lists (eek!) and wish lists, and went shopping for our designated elflettes!

And this is what my Polish Elf, Danielle of Domestic Minxes, sent me.

In order, L - R: Jordana Pink Hearts, Jordana Red Hearts, Dollish Polish Spank You Very Much, Up Colours Azul Disco, and Jordana Red of Hearts

In order, L – R: Jordana Pink Hearts, Jordana Red Hearts, Dollish Polish Spank You Very Much, Up Colours Azul Disco, and Jordana Red of Hearts

Look at the pretties! Love….

I had asked for any of the Jordana hearts polishes, she sent them all.

from L-R: All the colours, Red of Hearts, Lilac Hearts, Pink Hearts

And all of the heart colours on one nail.. the base colour is L.A. Girl Disco in Groovy – awesome polish but sadly so thick and old it was pretty unworkable.  No top coat on these!

And the other two are Dollish Polish Spank You Very Much (love the name! hehe!) and Up Colors Holographic Azul Disco.

Here is two coats of Spank You Very Much over bare nail.. it actually looked less bare than I thought it would, though the camera is picking up the patches. But this will be a lovely layering polish, in fact I have already done one accent layer with it, which I’ll show later.

It’s a gorgeous mix of turquoise and purple, which are two of my favourite colours 😀 Thank you, Danielle!

I haven’t shown you Azul Disco, because there was no sunlight, and I have no intention of just doing a quick swatch with this. This puppy is going on and STAYING on for awhile.  There’ll be photos when that happens, of course 🙂

I thoroughly enjoyed the Polish Elf experience… the nervousness of buying polishes for someone else, the anxious ‘will they like it’ wait, and, of course, getting nail mail! Just brilliant 😀
