Nail Mail and 300 Followers!!! :D

Good morning, dear readers!!!

First off, I wanted to apologize for my recent absence from this blog.  This weekend I attended a comic convention in Ottawa (the 1st one there ever!! :D) and my sister and I were working on costume alterations up until the last minute.  On Saturday we went to the con, and on Sunday I was recuperating from all the standing, sun and platform boots that I am SO not used to wearing!!  On Monday I was experiencing some log in issues with my blog account, and for a while my blog was gone (!!).  Thankfully that matter has been resolved.  :)

Second, I wanted to thank ALL OF YOU!!! :D  This past week I have reached 300 followers!!!!!! :'D !!  You are all so amazingly awesome, and I am so blessed to have you reading my blog, encouraging me, and leaving the most wonderful comments!!! :'D  Thank you all so incredibly much!!! :'D

Third, as some of you may already know, I was extremely fortunate to be picked to review some nail art materials that Cult Nails will be releasing on their website, starting on June 1st.  I was ecstatic to open the box, and here is what I found:

OHMYGOSH look at all those goodies!!! :'D

There was a lovely letter on paper meant to look like parchment, and it was sealed with the Cult Nails logo in real (!) sealing wax!!  How cool is that?  I've always been a huge fan of scrolls, sealing wax, calligraphy and illumination, so this really tickled me pink! ^-^

Here is a closer look at the gorgeous rhinestones and studs that I received.  These are fantastic!!! :D  I'm sure these will be a huge hit on the Cult Nails website when they are released!!

Here is Manipulative.  Oh man, I was so excited to receive this; this is one of my all time favourite colours.  Sooo dreamy!!  When I first saw it I really wanted it, and I actually got it!!! :'D

Here is Mind Control.  Oh golly, is this one ever a stunner!!  Look at those colour-shifting flecks!! :D  I was really happy to see this!! :D

Cult Nails Wicked Fast Speed Dry Top Coat!!  Awww yeah!!  I go through top-coat like crazy, and it is great trying another fast drying one! :D

So all in all, I am extremely happy with these products!!  I'll have some manicure photos up later on, but I just have to say that everything in the package is wonderful.  The colors are stunning and apply like a dream, the top coat works quite well, and the rhinestones and studs are ridiculously gorgeous and fun to use!! This was my first time using Cult Nails products, and I am definitely a huge fan!!

I hope everyone has a fantastic day, and I'll add another post a little later for Twinsie Tuesday! :D
