Swap with Monika from Penguin Puranki

Hi ladies! How is everyone enjoying their weekend? I hope it's been a fun weekend for you all! I've been busy trying to organise loads of things these last few days and I have a very hectic few weeks/months coming up!! My house renovations are nearly finished and my family and I will be moving back home in around a month. This wouldn't be such a huge problem but I hate moving with a passion! Plus, uni is on me once again and this subject looks HARD and coupled with full time work means I won't be able to post as much for the next 2 months or so =( But don't worry, I'll try and squeeze in a post here and there until all the madness is over ;)

I am a little late unfortunately in posting my last swap which I completed with the very sweet Monika from Penguin Puranki . The package took a little while getting to me but it was SO worth the wait! The package really cheered me up when I most needed when it arrived mid last week, thank you for making my week Monika =)

Monika sent me some FANTASTIC Swiss goodies to play with!! Here are some piccies of the fantastic polishes she sent my way!

Photobucket

From L - R:
MNY polishes in 749, 657 and 109A. Monika tells me that MNY polishes are only available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland so how lucky am I that she grabbed some for me! =D The blue looks sooooo awesome!

Photobucket

From L - R:
Essence Nail Art Twins in Carrie and Clyde, Essence Multi Dimension 3 in 1 polish in The One and Only and Essence Colour & Go polish in Check Me Out. More Essence polishes to add to my collection yay!

Photobucket

From L - R:
H & M Hello Kitty polish in Cool Summer, Claire's 3 in 1 Mixable polish and Nivea Calcium Power polish in Currant. I nearly died when I saw the H & M Hello Kitty!!! The Claire's 3 in 1 Mixable looks so interesting and am wondering how to use it properly.. does anyone have one and can share how to use it?? I also never knew Nivea made nail polishes but apparently they do in Europe! Monika did a great review of the colour Candyfloss here.

Top - bottom:
Essence Eclipse lipglosses in Lunch at Cullen's, Ready to be Bitten and Undead?. Monika very kindly hunted these down for me, thank you so much for fulfilling my lemming for them!!


Photobucket

Monika also very kindly included some extras for me! These included I am papaya and guava hand creme, Essence French Glam stickers and sweet cherry nail file. The hand creme is made in Switzerland and it smells absolutely DIVINE. It's papaya and guava scent (guava is my favourite fuit) and I could literally eat the tube, it just smells sooooooo darn good. The cherry nail file smells pretty yummy too =p

She also included a tin of Lindt chocolate, YAY!! I love Lindt and the tin is just too cute =) Plus it's extra special because it came all the way from Switzerland! Haha I'm a bit lame like that =p

Thank you so much for this fantastic swap Monika! Please check out her blog Penguin Puranki and show her some support! She does great reviews on Japanese products and also does some lovely gel nail designs.

Thanks for looking!

  7. Wow, those goodies looks great. I'm so jealous of the Hello Kitty polish! :p

    I'm impressed that the Claire's polish made the trip without getting all mixed together. As to how to use it, do not shake it or all the colors will mix together and you'll most likely end up with some murky, gross color. You're just supposed to brush it on with the 3 colors separated like that. Just a warning though, from the swatches I've seen, the marbling effect is very slim to none, so I've never been impressed enough to actually purchase one myself.

    @Nikki: Will do Nikki!

    @Monika: I'll find out soon enough =) I swatched it on my nail wheel and it's mainly green with a few faint streaks of yellow.

  19. @jellytelly_ri-chan: The colours are great and I love rounded bottles hehe. I had no idea either that Nivea made polishes! I always associate Nivea with skincare products and deodorant =p
    Thank you for taking the time to comment!

    @Smita: It was definitely a great swap! Swapping is so enjoyable and loads of fun! Hope you get to do some international swaps too =)

    @cupcakequeen22: Thank you for the info about the Claire's 3 in 1! I did do a quick swatch on a nail wheel and yeah, the effect is not very noticeable. But it's still very cool!

    @Blushingloves: Thank you!

  23. MNY is also available in the Netherlands. I own the blue one myself, but last time I tried I had a really hard time getting it on properly. But I'm afraid I was too hasty and didn't let my base coat dry properly. :)

    Also, as you can probably see, I just found your blog. I'm loving it!
