My Slovenian polish swap!

 
Who doesn't love a surprise package?

In this quick picture post I'm featuring some European nail polish spam courtesy of a swap package from one of my lovely blogger friends, Ina from the Slovenian blog Hysteria Of Decay.  When Ina contacted me to request some Ulta3 glitters she kindly offered to do a little shopping and send me a few things not readily available in Australia - namely brands like Catrice, S-he, and Ruby Kisses.  Another offer I could not resist! I didn't have any specific shades in mind so when the package arrived it was all a surprise... 

Catrice*
L-R:
 400 Blue Cara Ciao - Bright cerulean blue creme
490 Iron Mermaiden - I just love that multi-chrome!

*I've read somewhere that Catrice is budget beauty brand Essence's older, more sophisticated 'sister' brand.


S-he stylezone
L-R:
462 - Raspberry pink creme
290 - Metallic cobalt blue


Ruby Kisses
Red Romance
I adore how festive this polish looks with its smattering of holo bar glitter!


Which of these polishes catch your eye?

  5. What beautiful polishes! I must say that Red Romance really caught my eye, perhaps because we're in the Christmas season. :)

  7. Catrice looks oh so amazing, I love essence so of course I'd love a member of their family ;P When I head to Thailand I am going to keep my eye out for hard to find polishes-they may not be as great as Euro ones, but at least the hunt is something to look forward to!

    1. I'd heard of Catrice because of their connection to Essence, and I'd heard of S-he Stylezone but Ruby Kisses is new to me too! Whoa, now to find the time to wear them all. I don't want to just swatch them - I want to wear them out!
