Secret Santa NAILS 2014: Reveals!!!!

Recommended Posts

Soooooo I was totally sitting on my phone while eating wings eagerly refreshing for your reveal @ hahahah. I was really thrown off when you said you got it though because the tracking hadn't updated after I spent all day stalking it, and it was acting like it wasn't going to be delivered until monday! So this was a surprise for me too hahahah.

 

I'm so glad you like the pokemon cards (picking those out may have been my favorite part :x)! As soon as you said you liked Eevee, I immediately thought of that holo card because it is just tooooo cute. I also didn't mention this in my letter because writing is so tedious, but the other three - Gothita, Minccino, and Cinccino are probably my top 3 faves from gen 5 so I had to share them with you. :) (my fiance and I collected gen 5 pokemon cards for a hot minute after impulse buying them at walmart out of nostalgia and then they just kept releasing them and we were like crap we have too many cards and no use for them bahahah).

 

Also the hello kitty thingy *might* be an ornament? I found it in the Christmas candy section that's all I know.  But... I SWEAR YOU READ MY MIND because when I grabbed it I was like "heh this is a throwback to my hello kitty icon days" - I'm really endeared that you remembered that. :3

 

Also thanks for getting me hooked on multichromes after looking at tons of them for you. When I got the KB Shimmer in the mail I just kept turning the bottle every which way and going "oooh prettyyyyy."

 

Anyway, I had a blast picking things out for you and I really enjoyed your reveal.  :wub:

Well, my santee's actually said it was delivered around 1:30 today (before USPS tracking went down... apparently people are *really* sending out their presents now). Maybe she'll drop by? Or maybe they left it on the wrong doorstep? I guess we'll see!

 

Haha, do you have enough cards to make a deck to battle each other! One of my ex's, that was one of our dates... nerdy romance is so great  :wub: I've definitely thought about picking up a pack at least a couple of times in the last year, but then I was like "what would you do with it, Kyuu?!" I did try to figure out where MY binder went, actually, as recently as last month, and now you've reminded me again. Hmmmmmm

 

I really like the Minccino evolution line! Gothita is also super great. I actually really like the new gen pokemon. Peopled need to stop complaining because most of them are super cute.

 

I shook the hello kitty candy and/or ornament around and there definitely SOUNDS like there's candy in there. But I peeled off the stickers on the side, and I still can't pry it open. But I don't want to break it either... THIS DILEMMA. 

 

Thank you soooooo much again. I could tell everything was really thoughtful, and I really loved everything >.<

If you hold the Hello Kitty ball upright (ornament hanger at top) with Kitty facing you and twist the front to the left, it should open.

okay so I've been twisting it slowly and i know it's moved because the kitty's head isn't where it used to be in regards to the string, but i've been twisting it for 15 minutes and it's only moved like an inch.

 

LOL do they really expect little kids (whom I'm guessing many of these will be gifted too) to open these?! @[email protected]

We actually did play the card game with them a few times. If my memory serves me right, I probably got mad and rage quit, or my kid brother came in and decided they were fun to look at and messed every thing up each time we played. Regardless, our relationship does revolve around all things nerdy (he's currently fixated on the new smash bros release).

 

I also totally agree with you about the newer gens I think overall they're a lot better quality than gen 1 but people are blinded by nostalgia I think hahaha.

 

I didn't realize how difficult the hello kitty ball was going to be to open 0_0 (i kinda wanna go buy another and try it out for myself bahhaha)

I have a feeling the pictures are gonna be huge and I'm gonna have to edit this 15 times because I'm not sure how to put text between photos, but here we go. I may do better pictures tomorrow.

When I opened the box.

OMG. So Cute.

And it's coffee creamer. I go through this stuff like crazy and I love peppermint. It will go perfectly with my peppermint coffee that I keep in my desk and make at work.

The other rectangular package. Everything is so cute. I am going to lay it all out and get better pictures tomorrow, but it was so cute I wanted vto share eventhough you can't see everything.

Oh, I thought it would need to be twisted about 1/2 an inch. It should be one of those things where there's a gap in the threads (is that the right word?) and once it lines up, the lid kinda falls off.

 

ETA: Oh, too late.

And I see my directions are totally inaccurate.

And now the mystery is solved.  :lol:

 

Imagining a bunch of little kids struggling with this on Christmas morning amuses me because I'm evil like that. (I swear that's not why I sent it to you!!!)

I was finally able to open my gift from @@formul8edphrase . She spoiled me so much.

 

Part# 1

 

 

Here's everything wrapped.

First up: nail art supplies. Nail stripping tape, a dotting tool, nail glitter, nail studs and nail art stickers. I've been wanting chevron stickers forever, so I'm really excited to try them out.

post-95851-0-08358400-1418540158_thumb.jpg

 

Next: Freeman Masks and Pure Smile face masks. I love facial masks so this is perfect for me.

post-95851-0-40032900-1418540398_thumb.jpg

 

An Ipsy bag filled with some great samples. post-95851-0-95702800-1418540723_thumb.jpg

 

Frogs!! I squeeled when I opened these two! These are the cutest salt & pepper shakers ever! And these socks are amazing. I'm wearing them to bed tonight.

Next up: Some rifle paper blank cards and Amethyst glitter sugar scrub. The cards have 4 different designs, they'll be perfect for sending notes to my best friend who recently moved away. I love body scrubs so I can't wait to try this one out.

 

post-95851-0-35073400-1418542336_thumb.jpg

 

Peanuts by OPI! This set has been on my wish list ever since I first saw it. I'm so happy to finally own it! The best part is it comes with nail art decals.

post-95851-0-01137300-1418541272_thumb.jpg

 

Zoya in Sailor and Rekha & Color Club in Hot Like Lava and Sexy Siren. I love all four of these but Sexy Siren is my favorite. Pictures do not do it any justice, this color is so beautiful!

post-95851-0-71740800-1418541564_thumb.jpg

 

Some Rainbow Honey goodies. Rollerball and soap in Sweet Novemeber, l'orange ganache lip balm, polishes in café con leche and zi (purple). I really like Sweet November it's a very nice sweet scent. The lip balm is very moisturizing and I really like the scent. The two polishes are very pretty.

post-95851-0-97842000-1418541976_thumb.jpg

 

Here's everything together:

post-95851-0-89989400-1418542395_thumb.jpg

 

And I have to include a picture of the cutest signature ever! Thanks Gabranth!

post-95851-0-55007100-1418542531_thumb.jpg

 

 

 

 

Overall, everything was beyond amazing and perfect. I feel so blessed that @@formul8edphrase was so generous and thoughtful. I can't believe she got me so many things from my wish list.

Thank so so much, you are the best!!

I'm so glad you liked everything! Gabs was so interested in my wrapping everything and packing the box that I thought he should sign the card too. He was less interested in what I was doing after I washed off his paw and I could finish packing the box in peace.  :D

 

I hope you enjoy it all!

Ok, my turn. I got my package yesterday from the lovely @! I was so wowed and took a bunch of pictures, but then had a major back spasm and had to go hunch in a corner and cry for awhile before I could post. But it's better now and I can show off all my amazing gifts!
 

First, the package -- taped with pretty glittery tape! I'll have to find some of that for Christmas wrapping.

OMG, everything is wonderful! Revlon Parfumerie in Beachy (dark gold), Above the Curve in Pumpkin Spice Season (gorgeous shimmery nude pink), Revlon Parfumerie in Autumn Spice (shimmery reddish-brown), Fair Maiden in Evil Stepmother (holo wine red), FM in Sleigh Bells in the Snow (holo winter white - I'm wearing it now!), Zoya Oswin (red ultra-pixie dust), Nails Inc Disco Lane (black holo), a nifty striper that's also a pen in white, peppermint lotion, chocolates, and a maple syrup pop.

Guise! My Nails gift came today. It was so so overthetop amazing, I actually had heart palpitations while opening it. Not. Even. Exaggerating.

 

 

Okay so first of all, I don't know if you can tell by this picture but there was some serious box Tetris skills being exhibited here.

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

Here you see everything laid out, just seconds before the carnage began.

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

This was for Mr. Cultfigure who declined to be photographed so he used a body double. Sea Salt Caramels from Portland where all good things come from in his mind. Coincidentally, he is a man who even salts his salad so this was perfect for him. Apparently, I'm not allowed any. We'll see. Everyone sleeps sometime.

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

I'm guessing that my SeSa is sharing a personal favorite here? If so, I'm in agreement that these are delicious!

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

Oho, I think this gives me a hint about what else is in those pretty little packages

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

Holy Sh...teampunk Ball Collection. Seriously?!

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

Cats. Boxes. Natural symbionts.

attachicon.gifimage.jpg

 

 

I need to stop here just for a second because I have too many pictures. To be continued.

Wow!! Love the Steampunk collection you received!!!! SOOO lucky!

I'm glad everything got to you safely! at one point I was looking at the your instagram photo of your collection and going  :bandit: guess I better get creative. I hope I didn't get you any dupes!

 

Not sure if you opened it and just didn't photograph, but there are a few other goodies tucked in a red packet in the front too.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
