Nail Mail from KarenD

Do you know the kind of person that sends you twice as many polishes as you sent to her...?
That's the kind of person that KarenD from Frazzle and Aniploish is...
Karen had in a comment written that she would like to get some Catrice polishes, so I wrote that I was heading for a one-day trip to Germany, so I could get her some. She made a wish list of 8, and I said we could swap more if she wanted, but no, that was it, so of they went as soon as I was home again...
Karen gave me some brand names and I made a few wishes, and said that she could choose the rest. And one day the mail man brought 17 polishes from Karen - yes 17!!!
I emailed her and said that I probably owed her some money for all those nice goodies - and she replied: Absolutely not - it's the same price to ship that kind of mailer no matter what it weighs, so after I put in the bottles I'd bought for you, I filled the rest of the space with things from my swap boxes that have been hanging around my house being ignored for way too long.
Thanks a million Karen, you are simply the best!

And here they are:

Julie G: Fierce & Fab - a neon purple, My Horoscope Says - a metallic fuchsia, Fairytale - a lavender and Gelato In Venice - a mint green
Sinful: Hottie - a cobalt rainbow glitter, Boob Boom - a hot berry-pink, Petites Color Fever: Raspberry - a metallic raspberry and Electric Indigo - a metallic sky blue
Milani Chocolate Sprinkles - a dark brown with golden shimmer and Sail Away - a blue jeans/denim sort of blue with shimmer
Confetti: Happy Birthday - a gorgeous dark purple with a lot of lovely shimmer going on, To Teal To Handle - a teal with a subtle shimmer, Spoiled: First Class Only - a medum blue with a lot of shimmer and Are Mermaids Real? - a grape purple with a lot of sand and gold shimmer
Hedy's oke.doke: Camo Loco - a mossy/olive/army kind of metallic green with shimmer, Steal This Teal - MUCH darker IRL, kind of dark, dusty grey/green/blue with shimmer and finally Purple Nurple - a eggplant purple (also darker than shown) with delightful shimmer in it!
