European Nail Swap

In one of my Nail Polish exchange groups, they are many opportunities for exciting swaps for polishes you cannot get in your local stores.  I recently undertook a swap with a lovely woman in the Netherlands for some Essence polishes I was lusting after.  I’m not going to put them in a slideshow, so just keep scrolling.


So, first up we have two of the three glitter polishes from the Fruity edition.  One the right we have One Kiwi a Day, lovely green polish with darker green glitter.  On the left is either Mashed Berries or Very Cherry, as I don’t have the third one I am not sure.  In swatches they both clearly have the same glitter.  So until I get this on my nails, it could be either.  If you have any ideas, please comment below, all help gratefully received.


Above we have on the right, 85 Galactic Black and the on the left, 87 Passion for Fashion.  Lovely!


Above we have on the left 78 Blue Addicted, a Deborah Lippman dupe, the lovely Adina has some fab swatches here

Finally, here is a little shot of them all together,  Lovely non?  Essence is such a fab, versatile and cheap range.  I so wish we could get them in the UK.  Until then, thank goodness for Polish Buddies such as the lovely Maddy from Holland.

And whilst we are on the subject of swaps, the aforementioned lovely Adina of Blue Collar Red Lipstick, posted about a package I sent her recently – you can check that out here!

    • Hi there. Thanks for your comment. Your best bet is to join a polish swap/exchange group on Facebook. There are lots of them to choose from. Or if you aren’t on Facebook you can sign up to Make Up Alley. 🙂
