Haul, Haul, Haul, and NotD

29 Nov

Yaaaaaayyyyy all the things! I have a few separate hauls to share today, and then some nails ^_^ Ready for some photos?

First up is my small haul of Ulta3 polishes. These Australian polishes have only just started showing up in New Zealand, and only at a select few places. I made the effort to go into the city to check out a pharmacy that stocked them, and came away with four 😀

L-R: Blue Marlin ; Blue Glitter ; Red Glitter ; Mojito

I haven’t tried them out yet, but I’m excited about them. I hope the awesome chunky holiday glitters that Ulta3 recently released turn up in NZ stores!

The day after I bought these, I got a surprise in the mail in the form of the two OPI Skyfall polishes I ordered when the Warehouse had them on sale…

L-R: You Only Live Twice ; Goldeneye

And then last night I was able to pick up my share of the group buy of Orly and Nfu.Oh polishes. Super excite!! Here are the ones I got 😀

L-R: Dazzle ; Cut the Cake

L-R: Chantilly Peach ; Essence of Pearl ; Super Natural

L-R: 47 ; 56 ; 61

L-R: 89 ; 125 ; 3

L-R: 80 ; 26

Suuuuper excited to try out the flakies and my first ever proper holo! Plus I am so in love with the bottles ❤

Anyway, so far the only ones of these hauls that I’ve tried are the two from OPI Skyfall. Of course I went for my classic gradient tips :3

Pretty! I was a bit nervous about buying You Only Live Twice because I generally don’t wear reds, but I do like the way this one is slightly magenta, and the pretty shimmer. MaSucree’s suggestion for me paid off :3

So what does everyone think? ^_^

I have another 4 or 5 packages on their way too. Eeeep! I may have gone a little overboard on Etsy and Llarowe…

Teehee!

31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 10

10 Oct

Yay Day 10! So far I’ve managed to keep on top of it, woop woop.

After yesterday’s laborious task of rainbows, I wanted something quick and comfortable today for gradients. So I went with my tried and true sponging technique, which is different to the other gradient sponging techniques out there. Mine doesn’t really create a true gradient, but I love it. It’s a little bit different, just like me 😉

This is China Glaze Starboard, with Revlon Copper Penny. I went for the green because it was on my desk staring me in the face, and I always seem to wear blues (when I’m not rocking the nudes). When I do blue gradients, I tend to have gold or silver tips, and my poor little bottle of Copper Penny was all, “Pick me! Pick me!” at me. So I caved. I actually really love this combo, and hey, copper coins go green over time right?!

So it was totally inspired and planned out. Not randomly decided by what was on my desk. No no, that’s crazy talk!

😉
