Haulin’!

21 Apr

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!

Current manicure (#6) and pedicure (#4)

18 Apr

This is my current manicure and pedicure. I will change the nail polish on my hands tomorrow night. I currently have Color Club Wild Orchid on:

Can I just say how amazing this color is? It’s like a purle grey or a grurple with some shmmer to it. This is from the Untamed Luxury collection. Application on this was very smooth and even, however it still required three coats, because it is a bit on the sheer side.

Next up, my pedicure, Essie Angora Cardi:

This is from Essie’s Cuddle with Color Fall 2009 collection. I actually have a 2nd bottle of this since I won the whole collection off of eBay. This color is a dark dusty rose. So beautiful! It looks a little different on my toes, but I do love it. The application is smooth and even in 2 coats.

I’ve noticed that I have been improving with my nail painting skills. I think one day soon I will post my tips and tricks.

Also, this week I am headed to Ulta for my quarterly trip (it’s out of the way for me), so I hope to have another haul even though I should be on a ban!
