One day I was checking out the news on one of my nail polish Facebook groups.  A friend of mine asked if anyone was interested in a doing a swap with one of her friends in Portugal.  There were NO comments and NO takers!  I had to blink a few times and then realized if I hesitated any longer the opportunity would get yanked out from under me!  Thank goodness I was fast thinking because I snatched up that little swapper within seconds of the post going up and was quickly followed up by a second taker!  And I am so glad I did because I met a really sweet girl named Dulce (an absolutely fitting name for her!).  So after 2 months of emailing, getting to know each other and sending pictures of polish and brands we were interested in we both finally sent out packages.  This was just last week and look what arrived today!  I practically jumped out of my skin with excitement!!

You will probably notice there is a color theme, and if you have followed my posts at all you will know I am obsessed with turquoise, teal, green and sea foam green.  So that is the majority of what Dulce sent me.  Funny thing is that she is super duper into the same colors so it was basically like we were shopping for ourselves.  Awesome, right?!  Ok enough talk - check out this package!!
