International Swaps Anyone?! + The Hunt for Holos

I swear, it seems like just yesterday since I signed up for a blogger account! I can't believe I have written 100 posts already. Thank you to all my readers and followers for your ongoing support, it really means a lot to me.

So, I recently did an International swap, my first one to be exact and I'm just waiting for it to arrive! The waiting game has left me so anxious to receive my package ;)

This brings me to the title of this post, International Swaps. Being that I live in the US, I have zero access to the any of the amazing nail polishes all over the world. I have seen tons and tons of swatches online and I NEED to get my hands on them! 

Such brands include: (in no particular order)
  • -GOSH Holo
  • -GOSH Rainbow
  • -GOSH Unicorn Pee
  • -Catrice
  • -Barry M
  • -Catherine Arley
  • -Models Own
  • -Essence
  • -IsaDora
  • -Sleek
  • -Makeup Factory
  • -Deborah Milano
  • -Art Deco
I'm currently on a MAD hunt for holos! I think many of you can agree that there aren't very many US brands that carry holographic nail polishes; the strong ones at least ;) Actually, which US brands carry any at all?! LOL -_-

Swap Rules: I am currently only swapping w/ fellow bloggers at the moment. Thank you.
I send all swap packages thru airmail, so I kindly ask you do the same. Sea or surface mail takes a few weeks/months longer and I hope to enjoy our packages around the same time so it's fair for the both of us. If airmail cannot be provided, I also ask that you send your package first and once I receive it, only then will your package be dispatched. From my past experience, they were able to receive their package in a little over a week. Feel free to e-mail me if you have additional  questions or comments.

Brands I have access to:
  • China Glaze
  • Orly
  • Finger Paints
  • Sinful Colors
  • Wet n Wild
  • NYC
  • Sally Hansen
  • Confetti
  • Revlon
  • Maybelline
  • ETC - feel free to ask
If you are interested, e-mail me at or leave me comment down below! Thank you :)

Swaplifters: Ugh, I hate to even think about this topic and be a pessimist, but it needs to be addressed. I am a firm believer in karma and you'll get yours 10x worse. I will have no problem letting my readers know because I would never want it to happen to them. Please do not take this negatively, I am just being honest. It's only harsh if you are guilty, right? So, there's no need to worry. Can I get an AMEN?! :)
