My Catherine Arley's Are Here! (Pic Heavy)

After a 2 month delay, my polishes have finally arrived! I ordered 10 Catherine Arley's after seeing Emerald Sparkled's detailed post about them. They are all really beautiful but my surprise favorite is 803, the army green holo. This color is definitely not for everyone. I like to call it a pretty-ugly color. Pretty to some and ugly to most =)

All of the polishes I ordered are holos. Some of them are not as strong as I had hoped but overall they are still beautiful and definitely worth $3.50 a bottle. I'm not sure why the package was delayed. For whatever reason, the Bulgarian post office held the package for 30 days before shipping.

Here's a quick look at 803.
I stamped over it using Bundle Monster plate 21. The effect reminds me of Grandma's curtains :)

Just to let you know, over the next few days I'll be updating my blog. If you see any "test posts", please ignore them. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. thanks ladies

    @Rachel. I didn't think they would ever arrive. I don't believe it's the vendor's fault. It had something to do with "customs"

  5. It's quite an unusual colour, looks great on you! On my nails it looked a bit more 'ugly' than 'pretty', lol.

  11. @AmyGrace. Lol, the color and stamping pattern reminds me of the 70's. I think it would fit in well with burnt oranges and yellows. It's different but I like it!

    @Natalie. Hopefully you'll get yours soon. They're slowly making it to the US.

    @Lace. I thought the black gave it a retro 70's feel. I like it!

    @Ivana. Two were wrapped in napkins and then bubble wrap. The other 8 were in a nail polish box, and they put that box into an additional box. I was afraid they would be shattered but they made it okay.

  17. @Abby. I didn't post the vendor's name because there are many complaints regarding customers receiving broken bottles and the vendor not wanting to replace them. So I must warn you in advance that there are numerous complaints about poor packaging along with the 2 month delay in receiving the polishes.

    Please order at your own risk. Here is the vendor's website. http://beautycosmetic.biz

    Also many of the polishes may not be listed. You have to email them a list of the polishes you want.
