Nail Polish Swap + Essie Fall Nail Polish Giveaway!!!

I'm excited and thankful to share this post with you today! I put out a message to all my twitter and blogger buddies that I was hoping to share some color with a nail polish/card swap and my girls didn't disappoint!  
I had 11 blogging buddies swap together {12 including myself}, I was paired up with my blogging buddy/one of favs Missus V
I decided to pick Missus V. well, because she lives all the way in the Philippines and I knew we would have to act fast, because of time restraints.  
But we hit a road bump.... an international road bump!!
Here is what happened, Missus V. went to send off my nail polish and her postal service told her she was unable to do!
And being the arrogant American I am, I thought well of course I can still send my polishes to the Philippines, no problem! WRONG! Guess what, huge international problem you dumb American read here:

Examples of items that cannot be mailed internationally…

  • Aerosols
  • Air bags
  • Alcoholic Beverages
  • Ammunition
  • Cigarettes

  • Explosives
  • Fresh Fruits & Vegetables
  • Gasoline
  • Nail Polish
  • Perfumes containing alcohol
  • Poison
  • Pool Chemicals
For more information on what can and can’t be sent internationally…
So, my international nail polish swap was foiled!! I couldn't send the nail polishes I purchased for the (very non-vanilia) Vanilia Housewife :(  
{I sent her a picture of them you can see what I got her over on her blog}
I was however able to send a card.  And Missus V. sent me the cutest card ever!!! I felt so special because she took time to make me a card! The card she made for me, looks just like her... well the web version of her
Cutest card ever--right!?! I truly heart Missus V. and despite our international plan that was foiled by laws and stuff... I'm happy to say I have a friend in the Philippines! XOXOXO Missus V.>>> Salamat!
Also, Missus V. sent me an image of the beautiful nail polishes that were stifled by international law!

I would love for you to check out the other ladies' stories and see what was sent their way--CLICK THE LINKS BELOW.

As, a thank you to my girls for linking up to the swap, I've decided to run a giveaway!!! Unfortunately I cannot send internationally-- apologies!
