More Nail Mail!

Remember about the giveaway at The Hungry Asian I wrote about here? Well I was too eager to get my hands on those lovelies I placed an order with Kae through her etsy shop.

After 2 weeks of waiting and checking, it finally arrived in the mail! I was kind of a surprised actually. Kae did give me a tracking number but the USPS tracking number only worked when the parcel was still within the US. Once it left LA, I was left clueless.

I actually got this parcel when I was collecting letters from my mailbox in the office. Looking at the little hill of papers in the mailbox I thought – My gosh! How many letters do I have to sort through today! Little did I know that this was sitting underneath the mail!


I was surprised to see such a big box as I only ordered some minis from her.


The polishes were nicely wrapped in a tissue paper parcel and nicely tucked in a bed of more tissue paper! The little package was a shade of blue that was so familiar. I did a mani with a similar color not too long ago. Can you guess which?


Kae even included a little thank you note under the package!

These are my newest additions to my stash:


From L-R: Sea Creature, Twenty Ten, Mumbling, I Hate Pink


I don’t want to swamp you with too many photos. So, individual bottle shots after the jump!

Blog Giveaway – The Hungry Asian

The Hungry Asian is turning 3!!

The Hungry Asian is a blog dedicated to nail polish by Kae. I just started following her blog and I can tell you that I have totally fallen in love with her blog! The Hungry Asian features mostly swatches from mainstream brands such as OPI, Zoya, Essie and the like as well as a whole range of indie polishes – including her own range!

Kae’s frankens are gorgeous! The glitters are really unique and her cream jellies are so cute! My personal favorite is Cookies and Cream! It really does remind me of an Oreo McFlurry from McDonalds *yums*

Below are some photos of her hand-mixed polishes:
