Nail Mail: Chanukah Gifts from Nory!

As I'm sure you're all very much aware, the beautiful Nory from Fierce Makeup and Nails is my blogger bestie and monthly swap buddy.  We "surprised" each other this month with an extra holiday swap (I say "surprise" because we both planned on doing it for the other without telling the other; in the end, because we both have a tendency to spill the beans on our swaps, we found out about the other's holiday surprise ;).

This is my AMAZING Chanukah polish set!  Not pictured is the gorgeous blue bubble wrapper decorated with white snowflakes and all the blue and white tissue paper and ribbons inside!  (Funnily enough, my Christmas gifts to her were all red, green, and glitter polishes!)

From left to right:

EOS Lip Balm in LE Honeysuckle: My first EOS and it smells intoxicating!  Oh, my lucky boyfriend ;)

China Glaze Glittering Garland: Do I even need to explain why this polish rocks my socks off?

China Glaze Crimson: From the Haunting 2011 Collection, this is a deep, blood purple...if blood was purple.

China Glaze City Siren: From the Metro Uptown 2011 Collection.  Perfect for a NYC girl with a love for red polish!

Butter LONDON Black Knight: The jewel of this gift is certainly the BL (my first and a LE!).  Um, can we say gorgeous?  Nory actually waited to swatch her Black Knight until I received mine!  How cute is she?

Sorry for showing off so much today, but I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am after getting my latest few nail mails.  I've had a rough few weeks so this really makes 2011 come to a sweet end.

Thank you to Nory, Ruth, and Sarah for swapping with me over the past few months!  You ladies are truly gems in my opinion.
