UK Nail Mail, with some swatches!

Recently an UK friend, let's call her M, asked me to CP (custom purchase) the Urban Decay Naked palette for her.  In exchange, I asked her to pick up two Illamasqua polishes for me.  She sent me these:

Illamasqua Duo in Bacterium and Purity
AND she sent me these surprises!!!!!

Essie Over the Top, Chanel Noir Ceramic (!), Nails Inc Denim (Diet Coke), Nails Inc Oxford Circus

Nails Inc Denim (Diet Coke)

I absolutely adore this shade.  I am wearing it as a pedi right now, and it only took one coat!

Illamasqua Bacterium

How funky is this shade?  I love the creativity of Illamasqua.

I about fell out of my chair when I opened this one!  I actually wore it as my manicure for 3 days.  Some people have trouble with Chanel chipping on them, but I wore this with only minimal tipwear.  I used Beauty Secrets Moisturizing Base Coat (thanks J for the tip!!!) and CND Air Dry Top Coat.

Thank you, M, for your generosity!  You really put a smile on my face!
