Chanel Jade Rose Swatch & Happy Birthday To Me!

My bestie from down under, Natalie, is THE best Aussie artist. Period. This past week I got my birthday prezzie in the mail from her - not only did she send me the worlds most GORGEOUS Nail Polish:

(top: Missha Crystal Nail Polish, bottom: Chanel Jade Rose)

You can see the Chanel Jade Rose polish bottle here.

As for the Missha - I've never heard of it, but am totally enamoured with it. It applied so nicely, and the color is unlike any I've seen. I definately NEED more. PS - I have no idea what this color is called... the back says HKHO1... but who knows?? It ALSO says against animal testing. So thats a big YAY.

Natalie also made me (in my fav color, no less!) a gorgeous pendant and earring set. Totally my style, tailor made!! I can't even begin to tell you how much I love the jewelry she made. I told DH I need a date night to wear it so my daughter doesn't try to hang off of it!

also seen in that picture is Lucas' Papaw Ointment. From the back: "A local topical application for boils, burns, chafing, cuts, cracked skin, gravel rash, splinters, open wounds, insect bites, and nappy rash." It is to help relieve and cleanse.

I plan on using it for my horrid dry hands in the winter. I'll keep you updated on how it compares with the millions of other hand creams I've tried! Between this and my new China Glaze Peppermint Cuticle oil my nails should be back in shape in no time!

I am so going to Missha and pick up that nailpolish!! Apparently it has 5 different jewelry powders in there - diamond, platinum, amethyst, hydrolyzed pearl and jade- they do different things for the health of your nails, as well as give that extra bling bling! lol..

Did you like the B initial on your bead? I was so nervous doing that!

I don't think you can use Papaw ointment as a handcream though? It is really thick, like a petroleum jelly. The smell is kinda funky too :D Try it on your lips overnight and you will be amazed how soft your lips the next morning! It is amazing on the insect bites, Lydia & Owen's chapped lips and cuts!!

Thanks for the amazing review! I am glad you liked everything!

Nice friend :-) I really like that Missha nail polish. I saw your other Pittsburgh post. In this one it looks dark almost black, in the other post it looks like a golden bronze colour? Do you mind my asking which photo is closer to the real shade? It's really very pretty!

honeyjr - the light reflects it SO differently because of all of the holo shimmers, but I would say it looks most like the tone in the second pic of this post
it's really such a unique color, I haven't seen anything quite like it!
