Nail Mail and More Christmas Fun!

5 Dec

Sorry for the lack of posting! As I said last time, lots on my mind! I keep putting off posting because I’m waiting for loooots of packages and I keep hoping they’ll arrive. Today I receivedย one from new indie maker, Daily Lacquer! After stalking Ami, I had to have Makoto from the Lovely Moon collection, so I ordered her ๐Ÿ˜€ Look at the adorable packaging!

makoto01And here’s Makoto! A mix of green and pink glitters (hex, bar, square, heart, and moon shapes) in a clear base, Makoto was inspired by Sailor Jupiter from Sailor Moon! As a girl growing up in the 90s, Sailor Moon was a staple in my tv diet. I now have a desire to get the rest of Maggy’s Lovely Moon collection, they all look super amazing and I can now confirm that the formula is great ๐Ÿ˜€

One awesome surprise was the fact that Maggy threw in a little mini bottle of an unreleased mix called Tink Pink:

tinkpink01It’s a clear base with pink and silver holo hexes, hearts, and butterflies. Adore! I can’t wait to see my niece’s reaction to it as well ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m not sure whether this is a part of an upcoming collection, so I’ll be keeping an eye out on the Daily Lacquer Facebook page for updates! Super happy with today’s nail mail ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, I thought I’d also share what I’m wearing on my nails. I’m making an effort to venture out of my comfort zone by wearing reds more (fuelled by Christmas fever), but I had to have the old familiar glitter gradient.

snow01This is two coats of China Glaze With Love with a gradient of Glistening Snow (both of these are from the 2012 Holiday Joy collection), and a top coat of Fairy Dust to finish off and add more sparkle.

Bit of tip wear there, my bad! I’m sad that you can’t see how sparkly this was, but the weather has been complete butt lately (summer my arse!) so there was no sun to bring out the beautiful holo of Glistening Snow and Fairy Dust.

Anyway, I’ll try to make more of an effort to share more often. I’ll have to get some swatches of my new Daily Lacquers for you!

Love you guys :3
