I recently completed another swap with the lovely Lucy from Brazil. She sent so many pretty things that I couldn't fit them into one picture.
There were these Jade holos:
And even more Jade holos:
Those bottle shots aren't showing off the holos to their best advantage. Here's a close up of one of the colors so you can see the rainbows:
There were holos and glitters from Impala and Ludurana as well as a magnetic duochrome from Ludurana—I thought I'd seen every kind of magnetic there is but hadn't seen one like that.
Here's a closer look at the Ludurana holo:
But wait, there's more—wonderful stuff from Hits, featuring gorgeous glitters:
There were some other treats, but those were not available for photos because they were edible and I started nibbling on them almost immediately. Unlike last time, I didn't wait months to use the polishes, either. I seized the moment and tried two of them within a couple weeks of unpacking. It was difficult to decide which to try first since they were all so enticing. In the end, my love of purple won out and I reached for Jade Holográfico Fascínio Violeta. This is not a high maintenance holo; I applied two coats of it over my usual base (Instant Artificials) and had no problems. For my accent nails, I added one coat of Hits Speciallita Glitter's World Sydney, then topped all my nails with Diamond Dry.
A few rainbows showed up in my lightbox as seen above. I wanted to get some sunlight shots, but we were having second winter all the days I wore this combination so there was not much bright sun to be had. Fortunately, the Jade shows rainbows in a variety of normal room lighting conditions, so I strolled around my house snapping shots in my kitchen and dining room.
I did capture a photo near a window in weak sunlight coming through the glass; before I could go put on shoes and get outside, the sun was behind the clouds again, so I'm glad I got the shot I did.
I also snapped some pics in the car; I didn't catch any great rainbows from the Jade, but I did get the holo hexes in the Hits to show off:
I am so happy that Lucy got in touch again and was so kind to shop for all these lovely polishes from Brazil for me. Thanks, Lucy!
