Swap from Down Under

A few weeks back, 
I was contacted by a lovely blog follower by the name of Paris.
She'd seen from my blog that I was looking to swap
with anyone in Australia, 
as I've been really interested in getting my hands 
on some BYS polishes, a popular Australian brand.
Naturally I jumped at the chance and I'm so glad that I did!

We exchanged our wish lists, 
and Paris and I had a blast finding all the 
shades that I we were lemming for.
This weekend we received our packages with great excitement!

Now, thanks to Paris, I'm the proud owner of some
spectacular BYS polishes and she even threw in a couple of extra polishes!


(first row starting from left to right)

Army Chic, Envy Me, Fatal Attraction, Fern, 
Aqua Pool, Pink Princess, and Flushed

(middle row)

Ulta3 in Little Boy Blue, CRACKED(BYS crackle) Pastel Coral,
Down The Rabbit Hole,CRACKED Hot Pink, and Ulta3 in Lagoon
(bottom row)

Ladies That Lunch, Ultra Violet, Reign Supreme, 
Matte Deep Purple, and Starlette



The formula and finish on all of these are divine.
Paris had expressed to me that some of the CRACKED polishes
do flake off, but these 2 particular shades I had no problems with. 
Aside from some really unique shades, these crackle polishes 
give that subtle spider-web effect much 
like the crackle polishes back in the day.
I'm totally loving them!



Here's some swatches












Thanks so much Paris, I love them ALL!!
