August Hauling

I haven't been hauling as often, which I actually prefer. I have more than enough polish but sometimes I can't help myself! A polish has to be truly special for me to but it these days, check out what I picked up last month.

Trade Secrets had a bunch of OPI and Essie polishes BOGO, so I picked up these two jellies apart of their Sheer Tints collection released this past March. I would say these are more of tints than a full opacity polish, I hope to have fun with these two! Left to right, Don't Violet Me Down and I Can Teal You Like Me.

Both polishes have the same sheer gloss and translucent finish, I Can Teal You Like Me is blue and Don't Violet Me Down is purple. I would have picked up the other two in the collection as well, but the pink was out of stock. I regret now not getting the yellow shade, I’m Never Amberrassed.

Next is Sally's, they had an extra 50% off their sale polish so I picked up this funky glitter from Finger Paints, Red, White and Hue. I'm certain this is a patriotic polish, but I see nothing but nautical! And Rocket Popsicles... 

Another purchase from Sally's was OPI My Voice is a Little Norse, a holo glitter. It appears to have a slight grey base and when completely dry appears to have a gritty, almost textured finish which I totally dig! I think this would look awesome with a top coat as well. I think I actually love this one more in person that I originally thought I would!

This next polish was purchased in Rite Aid at the end of August, my first Halloween themes polish of the year! This is Sinful Color, Cauldron Couture. At first glance I thought this was a black creme with different sized hex and irregular shared green glitter. It wasn't until I got home that I realized that there were also various sized and shaped Black matte glitters as well! Score!

The last polish I have to share is one my boyfriend surprised me with one night, what a sweetheart ^_^ This is apart of Sally Hansen's new Miracle Gel line. This is Style Maker, a shimmery Green shade, that appears to have a slight duochrome in the bottle, but not so much on the nail.

I'm not too familiar with this collection or the idea of it being a "gel" polish if it does not need curing. My boyfriend was unaware of this as well, he based his decision on the colour! I don't think I will be purchasing the top coat that is to be used with this polish, simply because it dries on its own, no curing needed, which really makes me this that this is just a big scam. Maybe the topcoat is thick heavy duty and glossy like a gel, but why would they market it to be used together, I'd rather just use the topcoat and use it over other polishes, its a cash grab to me. Then again I have not tried either product, so I will have to read up on it any try them for myself before I come to any final conclusions.It just bothers me when companies use buzz words or popular fads to sucker people in to spending more or buying things they don't really need... End rant!

To end this post on a high note, I hope to find some more Halloween shades this weekend when I am across the boarder again, wish me luck!


  1. Nice haul! I like the look of the SH polish - should be interesting to see what these are like!

    I met my friend today and told me all about his trip to Canada - sounds like they had a great time! He's got loads of photos to show me soon! He didn't get me any polish but got other gifts! :-)

    1. Nice! That was so sweet of them to bring you backs some goodies.


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
