I Got Mail!

FINALLY!!!  We made it through the work week.  I don't know about you, but this week was particularly draining.  But it's not like the weekend is going to be much easier.  We have my nephew's birthday party tomorrow morning.  The hubs is helping his dad move his office back to his house and then going to Planet Ego for the monthly "Power Summit" (read: hide out from the wives day).  Sunday is a co-worker's daughter's birthday party in the afternoon.  I don't know about the kids, but I can tell I'll be ready for a nap!

I can say, though, that there was one definite bright spot in the week.  On Thursday, the mail man delivered an awesome package to me at work!  A couple weeks ago I found out that I had won a giveaway hosted by the lovely Kayla at Glamorous Geek Chic.  I signed up for her giveaway as fast as my little fingers could take me.  She was giving away 4 OPI polishes from the Fall collection and 6 (that's *half*) of the ChG Vintage Vixen collection (and it's the 6 that didn't suck, imho).  Take a looksee...
After fending off the nosy vultures at work, I unwrapped all the bottles to drool over their gorgeousness.  Each bottle was wrapped in bubble wrap - I appreciate the time she took to wrap all those because they arrived at my desk unscathed (until the nosy vultures got hold of them, anyway).
These close pics are in no way color accurate.  The first picture is a little better.  These are my first OPI polishes and I cannot wait to use them!  From back to front: Ski Teal We Drop, Yodel Me On My Cell, Diva of Geneva, and William Tell Me About OPI.  I get that OPI has cutesy little names, but some of them are pretty ridiculous.  But, it's their *thing*.
Ah...the ChG Vintage Vixen collection.  There's 12 in the collection, but I really can do without the others (except Foxy, but I already picked that one up).  If you click on the pic, you can see the names below the colors.  I'm excited about Swing Baby because I think it'll be perfect for stamping.

While I was out at lunch, I had to swing by CVS for something (don't even remember what it was at this point) and I *had* to check out their Confetti display.  I've heard that Confetti might be going away in the not so distant future, so I had to add a couple to my little collection that was started on my birthday, thanks to my bestie!
Click on the pics to make it bigger and to see the names.  Masquerade is a gorgeous deep burgundy sparkle in a dark base; Blue Bombshell reminds me a LOT of SH Blu (hence the restraining order); Smitten is packed with purple and blue sparkle.  Oh, and these are only $2, each.  The only drawback to some of these is that the brushes aren't always in the greatest shape.  It's like the brush is too long for the bottle and gets misshapen as a result.  Either way, it's two buck - I'm not going to complain (much).

Winning the giveaway was easy.  Now comes the hard part.  Which awesome Fall color do I chose first?  If you take a look at the upper right sidebar, you'll see there's a poll.  That's right!  I want YOU to pick for me.  Whatever the winner is by the end of the polling period, that's the one I'll wear and share on my blog.  I'm horrible at making decisions...and now I don't have to.

Have a wonderful weekend, my dear Kitschies!  If you dream tonight, I hope you have color dreams of Fall.
