Haul Time!

Hi Ladies,

Today I have all of the polishes I have purchased in the last month. It's not as grand as some of the other blogs out there (Deex-Nailz hauled 96 polishes in the states! wowza!), but I am trying to cut back and only buy what I really "need" lol.

On to the polish!

unnamed no name polishes - 50 cents each!

I got these polishes at the discounted makeup place I am always talking about. I almost had a heart attack when I saw their ad, it looked like they had some OPI's for 50 cents! ... but obviously WAY to good to be true, the bottles were identical though! I might pick a couple up, they were mostly sparkly colours.

American Apparel - Office, Malibu Green and Peacock

After seeing these on other blogs I knew I had to have them. Some of the colours I wanted were out of stock (factory grey and seasonal peach). I might have to go back ... am I the only one who feels awkward in that store?

Claire's -Mermaid and Fire

I had wanted mermaid for a while now and fire was on sale. I think I wanna try out Asami's (Nails by Asami) mermaid manicure with Claire's mermaid as the base coat :)
* note - Claire's has also gotten in some new cute pastel shades, I love the mint and lilac.

I saved my 2 favorite colours for last :)

Orly - Royal Navy

I wanted this one sooooo bad... picked it up at Sally's, saw the price, put it down. I saw it for $6 at a Beauty supply place I frequent so I finally picked it up. I'm not sure if the bottle was stored weird in shipping but I included a front and back pic... they almost look like 2 different polishes! lol the shimmer all stuck to one side, I gave it a good shake after I took the pictures :)

Nox (Twlilight - Poseidon)

Last but not least Poseidon, such a sexy colour! I'm so glad that they are selling these in Canada. Unfortunately, I was unable to find them (at my Rexall) I was so embarrassed asking the sales ladies if they had the "Twilight" polishes in ... not a fan... sorry. My kick ass boyfriend, however, found and surprised me with this one last week, isn't he the best :)

That is all for now, but I may be heading to the states on the weekend, any good spots to hit up in buffalo for polish? let me know :)


  1. Sweet bf you have :) We can't beat Deez with 96 bottles, can we? lol

    i always feel awkward when i go into AA too, i never go to the clothes when i'm buying polish so they must think i'm weird! i try to wear the AA clothes i have to try to fit in when i go ahhahaha
