Soooo now that I’m employed again and I can shop… I’ve kind of gone nuts in the last week or so! I’m waiting on packages from: Paris Sparkles, Glitzology, Head2Toe and 2 packages each from Born Pretty Store and MUA. Then today MaSucree and I went out shopping and I came home with 18 new babies. Woops! Wanna see?
My Very First Knockwurst from the Germany collection, my Christmas present from MaSu because she knows how much I love me some nudes 😀
Nfu.Oh #65 (omggg holo!) ; Nfu.Oh #68 ; China Glaze Luxe & Lush
These were a few that MaSu was a bit meh about so I took them off her hands. I love holos and I’m always keen for a backup of something as awesome as Luxe & Lush!
I only have 4 Sally Hansen polishes and they are all from the Insta-dri line, so I’m looking forward to trying these two out! I picked these up for $2 each (!!!) at a cosmetics sale outlet in New Lynn.
Aurora ; Neon Purple
A couple more Kleancolors that I didn’t already have and picked up for $3 each at a dollar store in Lynn Mall. I have seen Aurora used in so many beautiful manis in the blogosphere so decided I needed my own, and Neon Purple has a pretty subtle shimmer that said “buy me, woman!” when I looked at her.
Cocktail ; Candy Sprinkles ; Mistletoe
Yes, I already have a bottle of Candy Sprinkles. But it’s so lovely and I’m terrified of running out so I’ve gotten a backup while they’re still available! Cocktail seemed like a pretty soft girly glitter, which I don’t have many of (I usually get outrageous glitters), and Mistletoe looked so odd I had to have it!
Ever since MaSucree posted about her w7 hauls I have been stalking Postie stores searching for them, but alas! To no avail! So when I had to opportunity to stalk the very store she found them in, I went a bit nuts. They had all the things I wanted and more…
I couldn’t resist the awesomeness.
Anyway, wasn’t that fun! I can’t wait to try all these out and hopefully (eventually) get some swatching done. It’s much harder now to fit in swatching with full-time work and a terrible lighting set-up at night. I may need to look into making a lightbox or something! It will be strange because I’ve always preferred swatching with natural daylight. But we’ll see what happens 🙂
And so as to leave you with something other than pictures of bottles, here are the nails I wore out shopping!
I freakin’ love this effect, to me it is *somewhat* reminiscent of the Nails Inc. Sprinkles polishes that I’m still desperately lusting after. Sometimes I have to make do with the hundreds of bottles I have here at home. So sad 😉
Pst… I also bought a new mascara, 2 rings, some earrings, and a new dress while we were out… But I thought it was enough to show you all the polish 😉
