Orly - Fowl Play

Alright. My hiatus is over. I'm finally back to swatching. It took me a lot longer to start back up again but things did not go as planned for my trip to Toronto.

I planned on staying with my boyfriend, starting the process to become permanent resident and return home when my time was up. However, the immigration office I got send to after clearing customs didn't believe I was planning on going home. They took all my identification and my cell phone and detained and interrogated me for 8 hours (they wouldn't even let me call my mother or boyfriend who were expecting calls as soon as I landed). They went through my luggage and sent me on the last flight of the day to NYC (the opposite direction of my home). I had to stay at the La Guardia airport overnight, I spent 10 hours there then got on a flight to Milwaukee, WI and home to Minneapolis, MN. It was THE worst experience of my life.

Anyway, on to the nail polish talk!

I LOVE rainy days... unfortunately, they are not good for photos. Hopefully we'll get some sun soon so I swatch the sparklies and holos I have saved up. :)

Please ignore my partially and completely broken nails, they were broken packing, unpacking and hauling around my luggage. >.<

It looks like there is some major tip wear in these photos but it's just because this polish is a jelly so I didn't get much coverage at the tips. i should have put something underneath it! I will remember that for the next time I wear this. :)

This is a color from their Fall 2011 Collection called Birds of a Feather.

  1. I'm sorry you had such a problematic trip. I hope things work out better from now on.

    As for the polish, this is my favorite color. And don't worry about the sun, it looks gorgeous anyway.
