Umpteenth (nail)Polish swap :D

| |

Since I've started reading cosmetics blogs, I've always looked at foreign products like something I could never have - and use! -, so I'm very grateful to Sabbatha for giving me trust since the beginning :D <3

Sooo, here's our latest swap, well, this is what I got:


We started swapping makeup items too, some time ago, since we both love paint our faces :D
But these are the Polish gems:

1) Max Factor "Fantasy Fire", lol, I sent her one and she sent me another one, useful swap :D

2) Eveline Colour Instant n. 669, forest green jelly base with silver microshimmer °_°

3) Colour Alike n. 468, see swatches here :>

4) Q by Colour Alike n. 118, great holo! See swatches here :>

5) NYC n. 140 "Empire State Blue", blue with emerald shimmer *_________* (never seen in Italy, even if we have NYC...) I tried it on paper, it isn't so pigmented, so I know it will be stunning on top of something else too :>

6) Colour Alike n. 466, see swatches here :>

7) Colour Alike n. 445, see swatches here :> These two CA look almost the same above, but they're not, it's just that these colours are always so tricky to represent in pictures... Anyway, n. 466 is greener and more sparkly.

8) Lovely Crystal Strenght n. 402: look at it! And check awesome swatches here <3 <3 <3

Sabbatha also sent me some Nfu-Oh decants...
Yeah, these days we have more flakies choices, even in Italy, but I think these are still the best *_*
Didn't know their bases were so pigmented...

From left to right: n. 42, n. 56, n. 53, n. 52, n. 51.
Thank you dear <3

I have to thank her not only for all the nailstuff she gets me, but also for having helped me with Fyrinnae eyeshadows.
Fyrinnae has the best shades, in my opinion, and I always wanted to try them, but I'm in Italy, which means: no shipping to our country (because our postal service sucks in international shippings) (not to mention customs taxes because of cosmetic items, etc...).

So I asked Sabbatha to buy some colours for me (hey, I paid her, don't worry :D ), and she kindly did it <3
Just one flaw: their site is horrible and unreliable: one day it works, the day(S) after is completely off >.<

These are the colours I bought for myself, all full size jars (my hand shown for dimensions):

From top:

- Shenanigans (really complex rusty old gold);

- Bitey Tyrannosaur (acid green with gold shimmer);

- Callipygian (blackened blue base with teal-emerald shimmer);

- Mephisto (almost BEST eyeshadow of all time! Blue base and red-purple-bronze shimmer *____*, check swatches! )

- Parental Advisory (electric PURPLE with pink shimmer).

Closer look, because they're worthy :D

I particularly love that these jars are pretty huge: despite Sabbatha picked samples of these for herself and a friend (this beautiful and VERY talented girl :> ), they're full, they'll last me a whole life.

ITALIANE! (detto alla Totò): se avete amici/parenti/amanti oltreconfine, chiedete di farvi da tramite per acquistare qualcuno di questi ombretti! Non costano molto, i colori sono parecchi, molto particolari anche nei riflessi e si possono sovrapporre a matite, basi colorate, gel eyeliner, etc; in più le dimensioni delle scatoline sono decisamente interessanti.
Bisogna solo avere un po' di pazienza con il sito, il quale sembra essere gestito dallo Stato italiano, poiché funziona a cavolo (alcuni giorni è del tutto offline, altri non fa completare gli ordini, a volte non ti fa pagare, etc.). 
Ma ne vale la pena ;>

Sabbatha also sent me samples of colours she chose for herself (the little jars with the orange labels in the first picture of this post), and added a Kobo baked violet eyeshadow, and samples of these pretty pigments :>
What else could I ask for?

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

Gli ombretti sembrano divini *ç*

Aly MaiSenzaSmalto said...

Fyrinnae! Avevo provato a fare un ordine tanto tempo fa ma avevano già chiuso le spedizioni all'Italia. Sono bellissimi (e noto un certo "fil rouge" nei colori degli smalti :-D)

Smaltoitaliano said...

sabbatha, too many samples :P :D

Candy Killer, it's true!

Elsa, sì, colori mai visti qui °_°

MaiSenzaSmalto, il fil rouge è del tutto casuale, come potrai immaginare :D
Fyrinnae, ahimé, ormai non ci vogliono più :^(
