Pastels for summer!

Nail Polish HaulMr. Postman apparently decided to brighten up my day a little as he brought me two packages today! I haven't received any mail for a long time. For normal people the definition of "a long time" might differ a bit from mine, but I'm the one doing the defining here. The first package contained a small eBay haul of nail polishes after a recommendation from Pinchy Peach, and I'm thrilled! I do have to blame one of the polishes on Neglelakkmani, for including it when she swatched three slightly different lilacs for me in the end of March. The polish I'm talking about is OPI A Grape Fit!, and I absolutely love the color. I had OPI Do You Lilac It? from before, and it's been a favorite ever since I used it the first time. What would life be like without purples?

The rest of the haul mainly consisted of essie® The Resort Collection (Splash of Grenadine, Lapis of Luxury, Turquoise & Caicos, Playa del Platinum), China Glaze Something Sweet and essie® Matte About You (matte top coat), as I mentioned here. I'm a bit disappointed in ChG Something Sweet, because it seems to be one of those completely off pinks which make my skin turn ashy. Who'd wanna look like a zombie? With pink nails? Bah. I'll have to try it out though, I might be wrong. And if you want to see Theo making a sneaky guest appearance while Øyvind is taking pictures of my haul, feel free to click here.

Moving on to the second package! On May 4th I received a very nice comment from Kari, who wanted to know whether or not I'm pleased with our beloved Nespresso Lattissima and also asking me for my address so she could send me a little something from Nespresso for PR. How cool isn't that? So today I received some free capsules of Nespresso's new coffee Fortissio Lungo - purrfect! Thank you so much, Kari.

Imagine that, my blog actually contributed in getting me a cool freebie. Grin
