For those of you who don't know of her yet, Lynnderella is a very famous frankener (someone who mixes their own nail polish) on MUA. What little I know of her I learned from this interview I found on another blog. You can read it here.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I was approached by someone on MUA, I have NO IDEA who (they made sure of that!), and she said she wanted to send me a bottle of SA! I was totally stoked, needless to say. My BF was a little wary, but I have received a "RAOK" before by way of MUA, so... it wasn't TOO far fetched to believe. So I gave her my address (after much convincing of the BF!) and lo and behold, the most GLORIOUS BOX OF NAIL POLISH EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD shows up at my door.
I seriously was like, speechless as I opened all the pretties. I mean, the thought that some stranger that I don't even know went through the trouble and expense to send me this huge box of nail polish just blows my mind. Why me? Why now? And actually, on the day she first contacted me, I was having a really hard time. Bad day to say the least. Nothing worth getting into, but isn't it funny that her timing just so happened to coincide with my bad day? I thought so. Anyway, lemme just say- Karma can be a real pain in the ass, or it can be a wonderful thing! Just depends how you live your life I guess. Not that I'm all holier than thou over my Karma and a box of nail polish! LOL. I just couldn't help but make the connection.
If you've read this far, congratulations! You made it thru my rant! LOL And now, ladies, onto the main event.

Let me tell you guys, before I owned this polish, I TRIED to franken it for myself. I failed MISERABLY! LOL It ended up looking like the glitter was coated in white polish (which it was!) and just overall yucky. But this.... *sigh* I wish I knew how she did it!
And the rest of the polishes in that box were equally spectacular. Let me show you what was inside:
|Lynnderella Frankens: Snow Angel, Mercurial, Shape Shifter, The Glittering Crowd, Chartreuse Grit, Nosegay, and Magenta Crunch|

I mean, wow. So yeah. There's my haul. And my story. Some nice lady (I'm assuming) somehow came across me on MUA (searching wishlists maybe? SA was on my w/l) and offered up a very coveted polish. But the package that came in the mail was something way bigger.
I really felt like I was unwrapping a box of love! As corny as that sounds. It helps to have moments in life where it just feels like the Universe is vindicating what you're doing. Regardless if you can't pay your rent, or afford the best food for you critters, if you're doing the BEST you CAN in life, I think that's enough. I hope it is anyway.
Until next time my pretties. Love and NP to you. And remember- have you hugged a MUAer today!? ;)
