Recently, I participated in an awesome polish swap that was hosted by the lovely Angela at Hairspray and High Heels and our new found friend (also very lovely!) Meghan at Shine On , and as a first swap experience, it was awesome!
I was paired with the darling and loveable Ashley, whose blog is Passion for Polish . Gift exchanges and surprises are pretty much what makes the WyoSparkles world go 'round, so I had a blast choosing nail related goodies for Ashley, and you can read about them here on Ashley's blog.
I was so excited that Ashley liked the package I put together for her...and I'm happy to report that the polishes that I got from Ashley were FABulous!
I have been in love with Essie's Mojito Madness for quite a while...ever since we saw it reviewed on Miranda's blog earlier in the summer. I really really really love greens, and this one is pretty much the most perfect green of all time:
As you know, we here at WyoSparkles are huge fans of Julep polishes, and were super excited with Natasha, a super fun and bright orange/red shade:
Anyone who knows us and our polish loving ways knows that we love how a good glitter topcoat can transform a polish into something fun and new. I really love Shaken Snowglobe, a Spoiled by Wet n' Wild shade. This is a pretty sheer glitter that goes with pretty much anything...and adds the perfect amount of SPARKLE. Love!
Finally, I was over the moon excited to receive our very first Indie Polish, in the super HOT shade "Lacquery." I don't know where Ashley got this one...but it's GORGEOUS! I actually haven't had the chance to use this one yet...but based just on the color in the bottle, I love it so much that it might get its own dedicated post at a later date. :)
I couldn't be more happy with the way this swap turned out. Ashley has been such a fun girl to get to know through her blog and through twitter, (Ashley's twitter) and I really love the polishes she chose for me. You should definitely check her out, she's got fun new polish posts all the time!
Thanks so much, Ashley, for partnering up with me on this swap. It was sooo fun!!
Have you participated in a polish swap? Do you have reservations with someone selecting polishes for you...or do you love a good surprise?
