Box #1 is on its way to Xiehan in New York!  I'm really excited for this round since we have the new rules. 

 

Just for an FYI, LisaN will not be able to participate in the swap as she had planned.  Hopefully she will be able to join us for Round 3.  Participants for Group 1 are:

 

 

Lead 1 - Lynda CA
Xiehan NY
Squidling PA
Wagz379 PA
Barberanza PA
MurfleGirl OH
Kirari TN

 

And just in case you are interested, here is a pic of the contents of the box. Don't look if you want it to stay a surprise!!

 

 

 

 

 

Top Row "Drugstore" - Spoiled, Revlon, LA Colors (?), Nabi, Sally Hansen

Bottom Row "High End" - China Glaze, SpaRitual, Illmasqua, MAC, The New Black (3 polishes)

 

Sorry I didn't write the names down before I sent them : (

I got the box today! Here's what was in it:

 

 

 

 

 

There's honestly only one polish in here that really interests me, but I'll be a good sport and take out and put in a couple. I figure we could use a little more variety in colors, since this selection is very heavy on the reds/pinks/peaches.

Aw! :)  Good for you for being a good sport. Although someone prob would have loved those colors even if you didn't take them (and I have a bunch of funky ones to add myself.) ;)

Nevermind! I actually received it today! There is good news and bad news.

 

The bad news, which I could smell when I walked up to my mail basket, is that we seem to have lost one of the bottles...

 

What I received: (sorry, I cannot rotate this picture! It uploaded sideways every time I tried and I can't figure out how to change it.)

 

 

 

What was left:

 

What I took:

 

 

What I added:

 

 

 

The good news is that I added an extra item in to make up for the broken one (I probably have enough polishes here to make a whole new circle swap box, so it was no problem.  lol) I also fully repackaged everything (individually bubble wrapped each bottle), and i'm using a slightly bigger box with a combo of air bags and bubble mailers so I hope that arrives safely to the next person.  I will be shipping USPS Priority (The weight of the box should be about the same as the Small Flat Rate box).

 

The box is ready to ship, look for it to go out tomorrow or Friday. Thanks!

Just to let everyone know, the box that I shipped in is bigger than a Small Flat Rate box (room for more items? lol) and only cost $5.04 to ship.

And here's what I took out!

 

 

 

 

Okay, so I am going to try and run out to the post office between jobs tomorrow. If I can't get there, this is DEFINITELY going out Friday. I'm usually a lot quicker on my turnaround and I apologize! I love these circular swap boxes though, they are awesome!

It's Trophy Wife!

 

Okay guys, been a bit of a delay. I was out of town right before Christmas and then I came home to find my house had been broken into and most everything had been taken. Luckily they ignored the box of nailpolish, but all of my time and energy has been going towards that lately. I will be sending it out tomorrow and I am SO SO SO sorry it's been so delayed. This is madness. Who breaks into houses on Christmas?!

 

So frustrated...
