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.) ;)

I'm excited to receive the box next! Has it shipped!? 15d.gif

post #6 of 33

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!

post #7 of 33

meaning it'll come to me!!! *yay*

post #8 of 33

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.

post #9 of 33

Got the box! Took some pics, they'll be up sometime later tonight, after I get home from work. Box will be on its way out in the next day or so. =)

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!

I was thinking that, too!  : )  So pretty!

post #20 of 33

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...

OMG that is awful!! Whoever did that just SUCKS!
post #22 of 33

I am so sorry to hear that your house was broken into and they took almost everything.  Don't even worry about the nail polish.  What a bunch of jerks!
 

post #23 of 33

Oh no, I am so sorry to hear that happened to you.  That's a terrible thing to have happen any time of the year.  :(

post #24 of 33

That is truly awful! I hope they catch the SOB!

It's okay we all totally understand! I saw your post on Instagram about it. I'm glad your kitty is okay and that you atleast have insurance!!

post #26 of 33

OKAY! Finally got this sent out after much frustration over my house being broken into, fighting with cops and insurance, and my post office having awkwardly short hours due to staffing issues.

 

Here's the DC#!

 

0312 2120 0001 8979 9367

 

Again, so SO sorry this took so long - you know this isn't like me since I participated in the last one with great success!

Hopefully this doesn't bar me from participating in the next one. I appreciate everyone's sensitivity to my situation and for letting me work that out first. I really appreciate it.

NO OF COURSE IT DOESN'T!!  You will not get barred for having a break-in, OMG that would just make an awful thing even worse.  Do NOT worry about it at all.  Anyways, it is JUST nail polish so it is not worth stressing about icon_eek.gif People are much more important than nail polish anyday :hug.gif

 

(my New Years' resolution is to use smileys more often...haha JK!)

Well, we've had our first casualty.  :(  The beautiful blue China Glaze was decapitated by a careless postal worker.
