Swap Goodies from Portugal

I did another swap with Akuma Kanji, my friend I've never met who writes Under the Gravity's Nails. Look at all these goodies she sent:

Not in the photo above are some lovely photo cards of Portugal she sent along with a letter she wrote which included extra information about all the polishes, which is why I'll be able to tell you about them as we look at the detail photos.

The Cliché lineup, which I am told is their fall collection:

Left to right above: Nunca Se Sabe (You Never Know), Atitude (Attitude), Mostarda (Mustard—I am loving the pretty ugliness of this one), Atira Te (Go for It), Orquidea (Orchid), Silencio (Silence).

The Andreia Pocket colors—130, 127, 131, 12:

From Incocos—Beijinho (Sweet Little Kiss), Chi Coracao (Tight Hug), Ternura (Sweetness), Miminho (Little Sweet Nothing), and Meninas Purpurinas (Glitter Girls, which I can't wait to use).

Rounding out the polishes are a quartet from H&M and a new to me brand called Purple (kinda confusing but I love it). Left to right: H&M Matte Metallic Purple Metal and Blue Metal, Purple #77 Emerald, H&M Scented Rose Pink and Green Apple.

I am hoping I get a chance to try some of these very soon; it'll just be hard to decide which one to grab first! Right now I'm out of my usual environment, visiting my mom in Illinois and helping her get her house sorted out so we can put it on the market sooner rather than later. It's been more draining a process than I anticipated, so I don't think I'm going to be doing all the posts I'd planned to this week. Guess I'll have to see how the rest of the days go.


  1. What a lovely swap, and the colors are so you :)

  2. Jealous! Awesome swap-haul!! ^_^

  3. I had some cliche polishes before they take a lot to dry on my nails but they have very nice colour choices and cheap too :) Let me know what you think of them when you tried them out. Andreia nail polishes also take a while to try depending on the colour :)

  4. Very nice swap! I hope your mom is doing well and you don't get too drained.

  5. It is always a pleasure to organize swaps with you! Specially during Halloween :) Which by the way is tomorrow! I am so anxious that I spent all the day in the kitchen cooking and I'm affraid I will Forget to paint my nails with all the awesomeness you sent me! But I am really glad you liked what I sent you! Thank you so much for this swap and kisses and hugs from me to you and your family ^_^

  6. Looks like another great swap! Good luck with the house sale!

  7. Looks like some great swap items! :D


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
