Hey! Get In Lime!

Hello, I hope you all are doing well. I ordered some nail polishes on Victoria's Nail Supply and received them today after their website & the owner (I guess) went on vacation. There was a little mix up with the payment but I finally got my package today! :D I was able to get my hands on 3 (I guess you could say) hard to find polishes :).

Edit: I just realized that it's been 1 year and 10 days since I first blogged here! I'm happy that I've been able to keep up with my blog, meet new people, share my experiences and learn from other bloggers. :) Perhaps my 100 followers giveaway will also be shared with my 1 year blogging anniversary. Should I just have one prize or create multiple prizes? I hope to get some input!

Anyways, here's the first of the three that I was able to swatch:

OPI Hey! Get In Lime!
pastel light jade green. The swatch is 3 coats and no top coat. I love the color despite the fact that I need 3 coats for full coverage. But it was applied unevenly on the first coat and I didn't want my nail line to be visible.
* don't mind my index finger on my 2nd swatch picture, I accident smudged it before I took the picture :X

Hope you enjoyed and I'll come back with more swatches & maybe some nail art to complement them! (:


  1. awesome! congrats on your one year+ in the blog world! mine has almost been half a year =P one giveaway would be easier to keep in order, but whatever is easiest for ya =P HGIL is a beauty! i've wanted that polish since i got into nail art. still dont have it..haha. how was the service at VNS? besides for the little mix up..? i wanna order some polishes too, not sure where yet =P

  2. Thank you! (: This was my first time ordering from VNS because I thought that you had to be a nail tech. or student in order to buy from them. The service with VNS was good. They communicated with me throughout the process especially during the mix up because they sent me an invoice but I paid via paypal by sending money personally so they missed the payment. But they found it. Even though they were on vacation, they still found time to email me about the whole transaction. They're really nice and because they don't list the OPI's on their website, you could email them and ask if they have them in stock. They also packaged it well.

    I've ordered once from 8ty8beauty but their polishes aren't as up to date compared to TransDesign and VNS. Transdesign it keeps track of your orders on your personal page on their website.

    But both TD and VNS provide tracking numbers and they're exact. :) I wouldn't mind ordering from either of the 2, it's really up to you. :P And the price different isn't a lot though so yeah. :D

  3. awesome! thanks much for the info! i'll have to start looking into it now! ;)

  4. Congratulations on one year! I love VNS - especially since I can pay with Paypal and their site is easy to navigate. I find their prices and shipping a little lower than TD, which adds up when you're buying alot, so I prefer VNS.

  5. I always thought the shipping was a little expensive with both TD and VNS but I never compared. But thanks for letting me know. And I agree that it's so much easier to pay with Paypal since after a whole situation with my dad (someone opened credit cards and accounts in his name) ~ I'm getting paranoid and stuff. But I'll keep that in mind :) and thank you!
