RebeccaLikesNails and I like Rebecca, it's as simple as that.
This girl is an amazing person. She sent me a thank you present in return for me having sent her a thank you present. I mean really? Who does that now a days? Rebecca does!
First of all, she got me a polish off of my wishlist!
OPI We'll Always Have Paris Suede
This was the only polish is the Suede line I was really interested in. And I couldn't find it locally. I'm not too much for matte finishes, but with a topcoat this is stunning! So I can't wait to try it out.
Then she included several items from "Nail Art Diva!" I've never heard of this brand or seen it used on a blog before, so that's exciting too!
This is the image plate she included "From the Heart" 1. It's got a large heart (on the left) and then all of the little sayings like you find on chalky valentine heart candy. Very cute! I'm a little confused by the thing in the center of the plate. Is it just showing you different combinations to try? The instructions on the back of the packaging were worn off, so if it said it there I'm missing out. If you know what it is, just leave me a comment please!
Lastly she included these 2 stamping polishes also from the "Nail Art Diva!" line. I've had the same gripe as Rebecca about trouble finding a red creme polish for stamping and here it is! Below I've compared it to a standard size polish.
I tested their opaqueness on paper because of what's currently on my nails (more to come at the end). They're both fantastic over white but don't really show much over dark colors. :( That's ok though, I will definitely get some great use out of these!
So what's on my nails that I didn't immediately test these goodies out on my nails?
That's Rebecca's combo that won in the Bundle Monster contest here! After Rebecca won in that contest, she posted a wonderfully detailed tutorial on how to do a proper gradient manicure. I loved how her entry to Bundle Monster looked, so I tried it with similar colors and the newest version of Bundle Monster zebra print (BM 223).
I used the following colors : Zoya Areej, Zoya Mira, Zoya Breezi, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away. (Konad black stamping polish for the zebra)
I also recently bought this really pretty LA Colors in "Jewel Tone" that falls in the same color family. I can't figure out if I should add it somehow to my mani or leave well enough alone....
