What Happens When I Shop… And Some NotD

28 Jan

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?

haul08The whole darn lot! In my defense… the four in the middle I stole from MaSu (technically the OPI was my Christmas present).

haul02

My Very First Knockwurst from the Germany collection, my Christmas present from MaSu because she knows how much I love me some nudes πŸ˜€

haul03

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!

haul04Mink & Diamonds ; Fiery Diamond

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.

haul01

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.

haul05

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!

haul06w7 polishes: Metallic Jupiter ; Metallic Mercury ; Metallic Neptune

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…

haul07w7 polishes: Metallic Mars ; Metallic Saturn ; Metallic Venus ; Cosmic Green

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 πŸ™‚

And so as to leave you with something other than pictures of bottles, here are the nails I wore out shopping!

notdKleancolor Ocean Wave (metallic blue) + China Glaze Pizzazz (rainbow glitter) + Nfu.Oh #03 (sheer white jelly).

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 πŸ˜‰

Lates!

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 πŸ˜‰

Recent Shopping Fun with Delindel

23 Apr

Ooookay yeah, I know, I’m terrible and a ridiculously lazy blogger and I don’t deserve to be here! I am aware of how pathetic and whiny it sounds since I only work part-time, but work is reallllly getting me down lately. Even though I need the money, I’m looking forward to our new assistant manager starting soonish so I won’t have to be at work as much. I think it’s kinda hitting me hard that I’m now a university graduate with a Bachelor’s degree, and I work part-time in retail. I’ve been having zero luck on the job-hunting front and it’s making me feel rather rubbish!

So, as ever, I resort to shopping to make myself feel better, particularly nail stuff. So today I’ve got a few things to show off from the past two weeks or so. Omgggg, how exciting for you! πŸ˜€

I’ll start off with my newest Mode polishes…
