When I first started hanging out over there I heard of these things called RAOKs - Random Acts Of Kindness. Think of RAOKs as care packages from one nail polish lover to another. I have sent a few RAOKs to some folks who helped me out at one point or another (like when I was planning for my London trip, and needed help figuring out what to bring back) or just because someone was really desiring a polish I had but knew I would never use. Well, I’m sure you can see where this is going – last week a member contacted me to let me know she had an extra polish on my wishlist and wanted to send it to me as a RAOK. She sent me that polish – and a lot more! – and the RAOK has floored me. I swear, I even cried a little as I opened the package. I can’t even say this was like Christmas in September, because my family doesn’t really celebrate Christmas anymore, so this was even better!
Here’s my RAOK package:
|L-to-R: Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Collection, Rock 'N Romance Collection|
|L-to-R: OPI Creme de Menthe, Mad As A Hatter, Damone Roberts 1968, Julep Whitney|
|Clockwise from top: Rococo Gold Leaf, Illamasqua Hectic, RBL Black Russian, Poco a Poco, Chanel Quartz|
I am so grateful to the amazing angel who sent these to me! I’m cherishing them all, and expect to see swatches soon!
