Lucky Ducky...The Sequel

Let me start by saying I have the best friends. This bears repeating: I HAVE THE BEST FRIENDS! I'm so excited and happy to share the wonderful package I received yesterday from my sweet friend Destany (please click HERE to peruse her blog, should you so desire). Behold, the goodies: Now, Des has been a friend for several years now. We met through Facebook and it's only in the past five months or so that we've bonded further over our shared love of polish. For some reason, my part of Florida never seems to carry Wet n Wild Limited Edition collections and it's the bane of my existence (well, one of many banes). Fortunately, I have awesome pals like Des who are sweet enough to help me find these fabulous gems. This super-amazing package contained the following: Collecting Pollen and Garden Hose (from the Wet n Wild Limited Edition Bloom Collection), Wet n Wild Sea Witch (from the Limited Edition Mermaid's Cove Collection), Avon Blue Flair, OPI RapiDry Top Coat (I've never tried a quick-dry so I'm psyched to try this out), China Glaze For Audrey (which, let's face it, is SO me, being addicted to all things blue, sky blue in particular), Avon Nail Experts Nutri Boost Nutri Plus, Wet n Wild Stream of Wonder (also from the Mermaid's Cove Collection) and Sally Hansen Mint Sprint along with some super yummy sweet/sour treats.

Des knows this already but I am soooo incredibly grateful for her kindness and generosity. I've been going through such a rough patch in my real (non-polish) life for the past several years and gestures like this mean so very much. When I feel like I am literally at the end of my rope and find myself considering ways to tie it, it's the love of friends that reels me back in. No small gift, clearly.

I've swatched these polishes on my nail wheels and when I try them out I will, for sure, share pics and reviews. In the meantime, just know that I'm still feeling the warm fuzzies and I hope it lasts a long time. :)
