Freecycle Friday

TGIF!! I don't know about you, but I am READY for this work week to be finished! We only have one doc in this morning, so the day is really dragging. But...the one who's here bought bagels. Nice!! And, some of the staff are heading over to his place after work for a little BBQ. It'll be nice to see my co-workers out of the office for a change.

On to the goods! Earlier this week I got a reply from somebody through Freecycle telling me they have a bunch of polish for me. *squee* We decided on a time and I went to pick up the goods. Let me tell you - this time around was much better than the first! The first experience netted me 3 polishes which I promptly put aside for my Zoya polish exchange package. There are a couple keepers in this batch! I got somewhere around 30 polishes. Take a look!! Oh, and BTW, the hubs and BFF think I'm crazy. LOL

The whole group - look at all my lovelies!

The Frenches, clears and whites - might use a couple of these

The reds! I love red, but I really don't have any in my collection. Now I do. :D

PINKS! I used to have some of the Revlon colors once upon a time. Kinda glad to have them back. And that little Este Lauder looks promising! It's a rose with enough gold shimmer to almost classify it as a duo.

Purples - The Avon color is OLD but I think the formula is still good. It's a pretty lilac with a blue shimmer. The Revlon, Purple Fusion, is UGLY. LOL

Everything else. This is a weird mishmash of colors. Glittery, frosty blue; pale blue; plain black; some weird frosty pale colors and an interesting burnt orange shimmer.

I'm definitely not promising a swatch of all of these - that would take me forever! But, when I do end up using these, I'll mention that it's from my Freecycle stash and link to this post.

Have you used Freecycle before? If you have, what have you gotten/given? I haven't given anything yet, but I'm scoping out my stuff to see what I can offer up.

Listening to: Never Gonna Let You Go by Sergio Mendes (I'm at work or I wouldn't be listening to this!)
Mood: Meh.

I love pastel rose- it's a scented one from yves rocher(don't know if you have this shop in the us) and they've discontinued it :(
