Holiday Polish Swap

In late October I saw a blog post about a holiday nail polish swap.  I decided it sounded fun, so I signed up!  The purpose of the swap was to spend no more than $10 and mail a nail polish and a card to the name you were given, and then that person would send the same to you.  It sounded like a fun way to get another person/blogger, so I joined!

The swap is hosted by:
Mrs AOK, a Work in Progress
Penny @ The Real Housewife of Caroline County
Courtney @ What's Up With the Wilhelms
Amanda @ Buckiddo

First, I went shopping for Emma, the person I was buying for.  I ended up picking the color "it's genius" by Essie.  It has a hint of sparkle and it's a shade of my favorite color, purple!  I also threw in a cute little nail file.  I hope Emma liked it!

Let me tell you, I was super excited when my envelope showed up in my mail box!  This is what I found when I opened it:

Emma obviously went above and beyond and got me TWO pretty nail polishes, nail decals, and a nail file!  I LOVE the polishes!  I painted the purple on my toes (purple is my favorite color so this was perfect) and the pinkish color on my nails and I love them both!

This was such a fun idea and I'm so glad I decided to participate.  I look forward to following Emma's blog, Miss Print, and getting to know more about her.  If you ever get a chance to participate in something like this, you should definitely do it!
