July Hauls - Part 2

Continuing on from where I left off :)

Haul 4:

I popped in to Sally's last week and saw that some of the China Glazes were marked down... REALLY!? I didn't know that sally had markdowns on nail polish! Anyways I saw two or three and asked the sales lady if they had anymore, I was surprised to hear that they did in the back of the store! Trying to hide the deals from us ;)

Anyways I picked up:

Orly - La Playa (loooove the name), this came with a mini of top 2 bottom, both for under $3!
China Glaze Emerald Sparkle for $1.99! I'm pretty sure it's the good formula too!
China Glaze Golden Enchantment $2:79
I also picked up Orly's butterflies which I am still currently wearing, such a great colour :)

Haul 5:

I have a Fragrance/cosmetics warehouse right by my house, I usually will go for walks and stop by to see if they have any good nail polish. For the last year or so they have had Sally Hansen, Maybeline, Colrama, L'oreal and Cover Girl polishes 2 for a $1!

I may do a post later about my finds over the last year, but honestly, I don't know where to start! I have found sooo many cool polishes. My faves have been the maybeline colorama flakies, L'oreal Flakies, Xtreeme wear Sally Hansens, and the much sought after Sally Hansen Prisms. All of my prisms have come from this place, for 50 cents each!

Below are the polishes I chose to purchase the last time I visited

SH Diamond Strength-Twinkle Twinkle, SH Nail Prism-Coral Amber, SH Hard As Nails-Baby Blue Icing, SH Chrome-Amber Chrome,SH Crystal nail makeup-Pure Crystal, SH Xtreme Wear-Carnival, SH Xtreme Wear-Golden Nugget

One more thing before I leave you for the day, I was shopping tonight after work and I popped in to H&M to look at bikinis, they had none :( but what I did find was a huge makeup section, has this always been there?

Obviously the one thing I was interested was the Nail polish, they had a whole rack of it! Finally Bella's Choice! I thought I would never have it!

H&M -Bella's Choice and Blew Me Away

I wonder if all Canadian H&M's have these in, if you live in the Toronto area check out Yorkdale. I was at Promenade on the weekend and didn't see any there.

So what do you think of my hauls? Too much? Too little?! lol What were your favorite polishes?

Thanks for reading :)


  1. I wish I had a Sally's near me! You seem to have gotten a lot of beautiful nail polish at a great price!

  2. Sally's occasionally has a blow out of their polishes and that's really the best time to snag them. Great hauls! You've got quite a collection of blues going.

  3. theartofnails -thanks :)

    Megan - I know, I used to have no blues at all. My boyfriend loves the blues, whenever I ask him to pick out a polish for me he always picks a blue lol.

  4. Oh Sally does have to get rid of old polishes sometimes, lol. I got a bunch of Finger Paints bottles for $1.50 each before.

    And yay for H&M polishes, we finally have them, well at least 1 location.

    P.S: Can you share the location of that little warehouse? Thanks

  5. Halifax - this is the site:


    it has all the locations. The one I Frequent is at Weston Road and the 401, I find that they have the best selection and replenish often. The service there does suck though, they can be very rude.

  6. Such great finds! Wish I had something similar in my area

  7. no way! that would explain why the dollar stores in the area suddenly had coloramas! but now im kicking myself for paying the amount I did for them, when I could have gotten 2-3 more polishes!! Argh! lol more polish the better right :P anyway thanks for sharing the location~ gonna try and get to one :)

  8. Awesome, thank you. Gotta go there next time I come to Toronto :)

  9. No prob ladies :)

    rasilla- which dollar store have you found the coloramas at?

  10. La Playa is such a great color, and you got it for such a great price!

  11. Thanks Karen, I can't wait to try it out!

  12. I love yorkdale! it's my go to mall! lol
