What a Classmate got me for Christmas

The day before classes ended for the break, we had a little Christmas party complete with randomized gift exchanging. This is what Tin, the classmate who pulled out my name from the pool, got me:

A whole RAINBOW of polishes! <3 I was really touched, since she and I aren't very close and yet she still took the time and effort to get me something awesome.

This green is my favorite out of the ten. It actually has a bit of gold shimmer to it, although it's not noticeable in the bottle.

To show my appreciation for her super sweet gift, I did a mani using 9 out of the 10. (I substituted ColorTrends Platinum Special for the yellow creme so all the polishes would have frosted finishes.)

Megaskittles! (Or Ice Truck Killer bait, if you watch Dexter. :P)

All the polishes (except the light blue) reach bottle color in three coats and dry rather quickly. Thank you, Tin!

Elianto Sparkling Diva: Racing Green

This pretty green comes from Elianto's new Sparkling Diva line. As its name suggests, the polishes in the new line have sparkly finishes.

This Christmas-y color turns opaque in two coats,

and looks stunning in bright light!

Sparkling Diva polishes cost PHP199.00 (around USD4.00) - pretty close to the price range of The Face Shop's Nail Pleasure line.

Skin Food Nail Vita BL511 (Secret Blue)

I found this polish's name through Jellynat's super helpful blog. It's a great resource for the names of Skin Food polishes!

I don't get why this shimmery bright blue is called Secret Blue, though.

This two-coater certainly isn't as blue as the deodorant...

although it is quite close to another Skin Food polish.

L: Secret Blue; R: Blue Sapphire
