i'm back + trip pictures

Hello lovely readers! I'm back from our nation's capital Ottawa (Ontario, Canada).

What a lovely trip it was! It was nice to get away from this city and explore the Capital! We did many things such as go to the Parliament, do a tour of the Mint, shop, eat, boat cruise etc. It was great!

Polish wise, I bought one polish in Ottawa Essie Pretty Edgy! I had been wanting it for a while and I finally found it in Shoppers Drug Mart! Who knew?! The Shoppers here don't have the new collection (well I guess it's not new anymore?)

I also arrived home to two lovely packages! A Nfu-Oh polish (my first and certainly not last) and some OPI polishes I ordered from Amazon.

Here are some pictures:

and again (being sillly!) this is the back of the building

this is me at the mint trying to lift a HUGE thing of gold!

new polishes from L to R: Nfu-Oh 61, OPI DS Coronation, OPI Catch Me In Your Net, OPI In My Private Jet, Essie Pretty Edgy

Hope you enjoyed my post! Polish swatches to come tomorrow!

This week my nails are taking a break. Thursday is my last day of work at the pool so I am going to go get a manicure in celebration! I've been waiting all summer!!! Not sure what colour I'm gonna get, I wonder how long I will be able to keep it without getting bored??

Thanks for reading! I am almost at 100 followers! I am working on my giveaway! It'll be around a 10 polish giveaway ranging in brands and maybe I will throw in some other nail related things as well! I am going to finish buying the polishes for my giveaway tomorrow hopefully!

ps: anyone wanna swap milani dress maker??!? - big lemming!!

    I have a question about polishes from Amazon, I live in Toronto and have been purchasing some from Ordering China Glaze polishes is no problem ( depending on the seller) but whenever I get to paymet with other polishes (opi, orly, etc) it won't let me continue. Have you had this problem? if so please let me know how I can fix this.
