Swap #13: Hits!

Saying that I'm a crazy glitter lover is nothing new. For this very reason you can imagine how much happiness tumbled upon me when I got this swap package! Eight fun glitters...

...are called Hits Speciallità and arrived from as far as Brasil :) For sure it was the most long distance swap I've ever made, and one of the most pleasant ones, because my swap partner, Mauni from Brasil, is a great person and also very talented in foreign languages, which I adore in people ;) Although she doesn't have a blog, she promised to start one some day - Mauni, we're waiting! :D :D 

Now to the swap content: eight gorgeous shades from Hits Speciallità, six of them from breathtaking Glitters of the World collection, and two shades from Mari Moon. Glitters of the World are named after world biggest cities, I got Cairo, Atenas, AmsterdãLondres, Pequim and Dubai. Actually I've been to the first three of them, three more to go! :)

Although I was equally overexcited about each of the shades, I didn't hesitate which one to pick first. Since I have a very special sympathy towards Greece and the Greeks, Atenas landed on my nails over Avon Sea Breeze :)

Hits Speciallità Atenas

Atenas consists of a clear base with large hexagonal white glitter and small golden glitter particles. Very much represents the city itself, at least its central part :) Not sure what to write about application, since this polish is meant to be used for layering.. a bit of attention is needed while spreading the glitter over the nails, otherwise a nice formula and a great polish generally!

Again, thank you very much, Mauni!!! This swap was a great pleasure! :D

  11. What are the odds that we'd start off with the same glitter?! =D (I've posted my mani on Flickr.) It looks really lovely over Sea Breeze.
    Thank you so much for the great swap and the compliments! Right now I'm mourning over 2 badly broken nails, but as soon as they heal/get better, I shall advance with the blog project. ;o)
