My dear friend R. and I had a swap planned which went as wrong as a swap can – at least in the first place. Initially, my package never showed up at her place, but then I received it back at my place about three month after I had sent it (you don’t want to know how it looked like…!) . I had to pay the additional sending costs back to me, even though the postman could have delivered it – the package had been to R.s hometown in Canada! Then I sent it again, but the whole thing took forever. I’m glad R. never lost patience! Her package to me took a little over a week. Maybe I’ll open a complaint blog about out postal system soon…
Well, you can imagine how happy I was when I received R.s package. She included a great medium purple polish from Joe Fresh, which is a Canadian (clothing) brand. The nail polish bottles are rather short and stout, with a big white round cap – I like that kind of shape. The colour itself is called “Violet”, and it covers perfectly in two coats. I’m not the most enthusiastic purple lover, but this one is nice. I do prefer the new Catrice purple to it though, because it has more shimmer & depth. You can see it here.
Well, I felt like I needed some kind of overload manicure, so I decided to add dots (I used China Glaze Sci-Fi for the dots), and then I sponged color club Beyond the Mistletoe on my tips. Overload, really. Perfectly for what I felt like at that particular moment!

What do you think – is it too much? Or do you also have days when you feel like the more the better?
