Photo dump/Haulin’ again

15 Jun

I think is going to be more of a photo dump. Lately I have been feeling too tired to post! Add the fact that I just got back from vacation last week too! Also, I have been working out at 6 am! It is helping me though. Anyway, here are some pictures with some short explanations.

So I can’t believe that I never posted some of these pictures! Anyway, here is my last haul from Transdesign and some polishes from random places like Walgreen’s and Harmon’s:

The entire Starry Temptress collection from Color Club!

The colors are: Ultra Astral, Space Case,  You Got Soul-Ar, Glitter Envy, Otherworldly, Wink, Wink, Twinkle and the Starry Temptress topcoat! I have been waiting for these forever! So far I have used Ultra Astral and You Got Soul-Ar. Sorry, no pictures and they will not be counted in the count of manicures and pedicures!

Sally Hansen Crackles in Fractured Foil and Vintage Violet, OPI Dating A Royal, OPI Lincoln Park After Midnight, China Glaze Senorita Bonita and Essie Coat Azure. I tried the silver crackle very quickly over a light blue (Color Club Take Me to Your Chateau). It cracks well, but it was hard to see with that color combination. I still haven’t tried the other colors.

NYC Color – Chinatown, Flat Iron Green and West Village, NYC Color Starry Silver Glitter, Color Club Age of Aquarius and L’Oreal Pink Shells. I used Pink Shells twice on vacation. The PERFECT vacation at the beach color! Again, no pictures.

Sephora by OPI, 212. I haven’t tried it yet, but I can already tell it is one of my favorites!

All these were a gift! The Wet N Wild Mermaid’s Cove collection:

Atlantis, Waves of Enchantment, Magic Trident, Sea of Dreams. I have tried Waves of Enchantment (again, no pics). I love it!!

Sea Witch, Diving for Pearls, Stream of Wonder and Ocean Grotto.

Next post – a backlog of manicures/pedicures.

Dear God, I have to stop buying nail polish! But my excuse is that there were some really good sales going on and I did manage to cross some polishes off of my wishlist!

First up is my CVS purchase. Revlon were buy one get one, 1/2 off.

From L to R: Powder Puff Matte Suede and Pretty in Papaya. I can’t wait to use that beautiful coral color!

Today I want for my somewhat quarterly trip to Ulta. It’s a bit of a distance from where I live. They had a lot of buy 2 get 1 free deals and I did have a $3.50 coupon too. Here is what I got:

From L to R: White Cap, Salsa and Sexy in the City. I’m a little annoyed because White Cap and Sexy in the City did not photograph well, so this photo does them no justice! I can’t wait to use White Cap over some of my colors! China Glaze were buy 2 get, 1 free.

From L to R: Bogie, First Class Ticket, Midnight Mission and Emerald Fitzgerald. All these were $2.99 each in the clearance section. I have Ingrid at home already, so I have most of the Vintage Vixen Collection. There were other colors at Ulta from this collection, but I wasn’t too crazy about them. I am happy with this selection!

From L to R: My Private Jet, Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ and Jade is the New Black. These have been crossed off my wishlist! I only have Lincoln Park after Dark left on my list. (I think that’s the only one left). These were also buy 2, get 1 free.

From L to R: Black with Envy (yay!!), Cotton Candy and Peach Smoothie. The last two are for my mom for Easter. If she doesn’t like them, then I guess they are mine, but I hope she does! I will have to post the picture of her present tomorrow night. She is getting them early because she wants me to do her nails for Easter! These were buy 2 get 1 free also. I was so happy Black with Envy was included in the sale!

From L to R: Ulta Pink Leather and Casual Mauve @ 99 cents each! And Barielle Aura Angora @ $1.99! I wanted to order this color off the Ulta website, but it is regular price. I am so happy I waited until I went to the store. The two Ultas are also for my mom for Easter.

Now I have 2 $5 coupons off of a purchase of $20. I don’t think I will be using them because I can’t imagine spending that much more on nail polish! My only other Ulta purchase today was makeup sponges!

What color to paint my nails tonight?

I’m also excited for my project this long weekend. I am going to try and swatch all my nail polishes on my nail wheels! Wish me luck!

Polish overload

15 Apr

Oh boy. I’m a bit hesitant to post all this nail polish goodness, but here goes.

My eBay purchases FINALLY came in this past Monday. FINALLY!!

The Essie’s are from the Fall 2009 Cuddle with Color Collection. They are: Mink Muffs, Chinchilly, Angora Cardi, Bright Tights and Pink Parka. Then I have 2 OPI’s: Russian Navy Suede and You Don’t Know Jacques! (Which I already posted a manicure of)

As I have probably posted more than once, I am on the hunt for Color Club’s Starry Temptress collection. Supposedly there are sets of thse floating around at Ross stores. Unfortunately, there isn’t one close to me. The closest store is a little more than an hour away. And I’m not going to travel there for no reason. Last Sunday my bf and I had nothing better to do, so we decided to take a road trip to the closest Ross which is a bit closer to his place, but not by much. It felt like we were driving forever.

>Yesterday I posted about visiting a jackpot Harmon’s. Here are my purchases from Saturday:

From L to R: Serena Glam Slam in Simply Smash-ing and Black Shatter (yahoo!), Color Club De-lux-licious, OPI Diamond Dust Top Coat and Nicole by OPI Drying drops.
I’m pretty excited about Black Shatter but I am kind of meh about Simply Smash-ing. I don’t think that lime green/tennis ball yellow is my color, but I desperately wanted Black Shatter. This color is so hard to find, you have to get it when you see it.
Still playing the waiting game on those nail polishes I ordered from eBay. I did pay for them on Saturday but still – they needed to be here like 2 days ago. LOL
I also purchased Color Club Fashion Addict today, but I am more than likely going to return it. I wasn’t satisfied with how the color looked. It should look like this, however in the bottle it looks more like this, which I think makes it like kind of flat. It is a holo, but a very faint one. I’ll pass.

>I love a good sale

>Pathmark by my job is closing, so they are having sales on everything. I’ve read and heard that you have to be really careful since they are not honoring the sales in their flyer. This probably means they are jacking up the prices, providing a small discount, and then letting you think that you are saving money.

This could be true, however the sales on cosmetics and beauty products are pretty good – 40-60% off. Most of the cosmetics are picked over, so I wasn’t able to purchase any eyeshadow or *gasp* nail polish! There was not one nail polish to be found. I did however, manage to score all this:

From L to R: Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover, Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Time Released Hardening Formula, Cutex Twist and Lock Pump Nail Polish Remover, Freeman Soothing Facial Scrub and finally, L’Oreal Telescopic Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black.

I love love love the cuticle remover so this will serve as my back up bottle. My total for all these products was a little bit more than $16. This is not bad, considering that the mascara is about $9 and change.

I’ll check again later next week to see if these prices drop even further, but I am doubtful anything worthwhile will be left!
