My Lucky Day- R&S Giveaway

In addition to my Zoya package coming in, I also got a package from the lovely Amber from Rainbows&Sparkles. She was nice enough to have a big giveaway on her blog, and I WON! And now it's all here! I gotta say I love everything and I can't wait to use it. Actually, my littlest niece, Pebbles, will be here tomorrow, and I'm hoping to take some of this fun stuff to her nails, if I can get her to sit still long enough. She won't be 2 for another month, so it'll be a gamble. :)

Opening the package. Amber put a sweet note inside.

I got a super cute makeup bag, with this stuff inside of it. Laffy Taffy scented polish (Strawberry, Watermelon, Grape, Banana, Cherry and Blue Raspberry), a buffing block, a nail file, and Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, which is one of my favorite things ever. It smells like lemonade. 

I got these two Color Club sets. On top is "Alter Ego" which includes (from L-R) Alter Ego, Secret Agent, Total Mystery, Alias, Ulterior Motive, Masquerading, and a topcoat. Ulterior Motive is my favorite, both in name and color! On bottom is "Wicked Sweet" which is another scented set of polish. It includes (L-R) Get Your Lem-on, The Lime Starts Here, I Always Get My Man-darin, Yum Gum, Raspberry Rush, Gimme A Grape Big Kiss, and Wicked Sweet.

Zoya Caitlin and Marley were also in the package. I already have these two beauties, so I will be trading with a friend for Zoya Lana and Nikki. Caitlin is one of my favorite all time polishes, of any brand. So if you haven't tried her, I highly reccomend it! I'm glad I get to share part of my exchange. :)

Last but not least, I got these awesome Sinful Colors polishes. L-R is Nail Junkie, Pinky Glitter, Hottie, Innocent, Unicorn, and Let Me Go. The glitter ones are even more phenominal in real life! Also, my sister made an "appointment" for me to paint her nails next week while she's recovering from surgery. I bet you she picks Let Me Go for her nails. The light catches all these different colors in it, and it's just very her. So, we'll see!

Thanks a million, Amber! I think I have more polish than I know what to do with now! My whole family thanks you, since I often paint my mom's nails, and I'm sure my nieces will be clammoring for all these pretties on their nails too! Swatches to come tomorrow, or maybe the next day, since I have so many to do! Stay tuned! :)

WOW! That was FAST!! I'm so glad you like everything! :D

FYI, Let Me Go is pretty sheer, unfortunately nothing like the bottle color.... It's best for layering: It gives a pretty iridescent shimmer to a base polish. If you do a search on my blog, I did a french with Let Me Go so you can see it by itself, and then I did a layering experiment with 10 zoyas. :D

I can't wait to see swatches!!
