Can you believe all the stuff I got from her? I totally made out like a bandit! If you don't already know her, you need to check her out here! She's da bestest. Awesome nails and flawless swatches.
And here's my little haul from out of town ...
It's not as interesting, but I got a few OPI's and a mini Orly and a little Sinful Colors. At first it looked like a regular flakie, but on looking closer, it looks like a glitter + mylar flakes.
What are mylar flakes you ask? They're used in a number of flakie polishes, but they're large, irregularly cut, thin iridescent sheets. If you google it, you can find some pics, but here's what they look like on their own:

Anyway, that's my excitement as of late. I'm trying to get back into the swing of life. Ain't happening yet.
P.S. With these added, it brings my grand total of polishes to 441. I think that's all of them. What? Is that bad?
