Polish swap with Anita from KONADomania

I recently did a polish swap with the very generous and lovely Anita from KONADomania. She sent me some great European polishes to try and I sent her some Aussie ones to try in return. I was so excited to receive it in the mail!!!!

Swap with KONADomania

Just LOOK at all the goodies she included!!! Thank you so much Anita!! You have really spoiled me with the fantastic polishes and all the extra goodies you included in the package =D Let me share with you the AWESOME items she sent me all the way from Slovenia.

S-he polishes

From L-R
S-he polishes in 384, 387, 427, 399 and 426. I love these colours, they're just so bright!

Misc polishes

From L-R
Catrice polish in Poison Me, Poison You! - gorgeous purple with shimmer.
Elf polish in Berry Pink - very pretty berry colour with shimmer.
Alessandro International polish in 263 - dark blue, almost black polish in the cutest bottle!
Essence colour & go polish in Underwater and
H &M polishes in U Must Have This and Liberty Girl - I’ve so wanted to try these out!! The bottles are so cute =)

Remover, hand cream and polish corrector

Very handy sized bottle of non-acetone nail polish remover;
Alverde handcreme – this smells divine and is wonderfully moisturising but non-greasy which is a must for me. And it’s the perfect size for my handbag too! I think Anita read my mind =p
Essence nail polish corrector pencil – this smells so GOOD! And works absolutely fantastic too. I’ve used it on my latest manicures and it’s great! It's 50 times better than the one I've been using from Morning Glory stationary. I’m scared of using it up though, it’s just too good!

Nail art

Nail stickers
2 Essence nail stamping plates – so awesome!! Thanks Anita =)
Essence nail jewels
Not pictured, but Anita also included a very sweet pair of earrings too.

Anita also included some dark chocolate (YUM!) and a fruit bar which my sister has hijacked though =p

My dilemma was which colour to use first! Anita suggested that I use a colour per day which is what I will do! My 1st NOTD using my new polishes is with H & M U Must Have This which is an absolutely gorgeous sky blue creme. I don't have very many blue polishes so I'm ecstatic to add it to my polish collection!

U Must Have This

It was very smooth to apply and I found the brush really nice to use - I only had to do minimal clean up. Above is 2 coats without topcoat and it dries to a dullish sort of finish. It was quite quick to dry too which is fantastic! I just love the shape of these bottles, I want the whole collection now =p

U Must Have This

I really didn't want to take away from the prettiness of the colour but I still had to do SOME nail art, so I settled for a snowflake on my accent finger using Konad plate m59 topped with Seche Vite. I received lots of comments about this colour at work today =)

Once again thankyou SO much Anita!! Please check our her blog KONADomania! Her konadicures are fantastic and she always creates so many polish lemmings for me.

Thanks for looking! And don't forget to enter my 50 followers giveaway!
