Big Polish Haul

My new China Glaze polishes arrived the other day! I ordered from Head2Toe Beauty and I was really impressed with the speed of their shipping to New Zealand, which was around 6 days.

Swatches I’ve seen in-store can come up a distinctly greyed blue, so I wonder whether there’s been a little shade variation.
