Happy Mistake? CG in the City + Urban Night

Hey gals! So I love fall collections, they're my favorite collections of the year. My favorite fall collections are the China Glaze ones, and this year is no different. This year, however, I had a preference in colors; I only wanted the Downtown set that they put out. So my boyfriend decided to be a sweetheart and deposit money into my account and let me order the set. I ordered it on Tuesday and today I got a box in the mail. I was SO excited, and shocked at how quickly it got here. I tore open the envelope and found a box...I tore open the box and found the China Glaze Metro...Uptown Collection. I was so upset. My face literally went from :D to ): in .025 seconds. I contacted the seller, and they haven't responded but while browsing through their profile discovered that I'd have to pay for shipping to return/exchange items...that means an additional $10. I was soooo upset. Then I started looking at the polishes and realized that they're really pretty colors. They kinda grew on me. And now, I like them. I decided to NOT return them, and to just order the Downtown set (from a different seller, just to be sure) and keep these. I then remembered this amazing combination I saw when I was looking at The Swatchaholic's swatches of the Uptown Collection and decided to paint my nails with Urban Night and layer CG in the City over it. Behold:






This polish DEF freaked out my camera, it was SO hard to get it to focus because CG in the City is SOOOO sparkly. The images are clickable, btw. This turned to be a good thing, and I'm sloooowly getting back to :D again. Thanks for reading! :D
