Saturday, February 4, 2012 way too expensive haul!!! PIC HEAVY

So this was my haul from CVS and Cosmo Prof Beauty supply. I went a little overboard: but it's income tax time. I gotta live a little right??? Plus I got some good deals. I mean...the total doesn't look all that pretty, but I had a lot of fun picking stuff out with my friend Lindsay the nail tech. I'm sure she thought I was nuts. :) 

I completed my line of Milani 3D Holographic Polishes

HD, 3D, HI TECH, CYBERSPACE, DIGITAL, HI RES (previously owned)

2 coats, no flash

I've been hunting a neon set for while and I love this. It's the Summer 2010 China Glaze Poolside Collection

2 coats without flash-Yay!! They're matte finish!!! 

With Flash

I completed my set of Revlon Metallics

Gold Coin, Copper Penny, Silver Dollar (previously owned)

2 coats without flash

I picked up a few polishes from the Spoiled line of Wet n Wild Polishes

Toad-ally Amazing, Jewelry Heist

2 coats without flash- I was so impressed with the green. It's a shimmery-creme polish and I can't wait to wear it.

I also got these cool CND package duo sets. There were just these 4 available and something told me I should pick them up and see if any of my polish junkie friends wanted them. And sure enough, two of them are being sent to my friend Jacki. I hope she loves them as much as I do. They really are such cute sets and I love the colors. 

Red Hot- includes Just Red and Red Sparkle

2 coats no flash

Silver & Gold Sparkling Effects: Includes Silver Sparkling Effect and Gold Sparkling Effect

2 coats without flash: these are so much better in person. They are so shimmery and have the smallest glitter particles I've ever seen. The silver is like a shimmery white sparkle. The gold is a super fine gold holo top coat. Amazing!!! 

With flash- compare the gold glitter particles to the red ones on the right They are so much smaller. This is micro-glitter for sure! 

I needed some new nippers. These were pretty cheap too. I also got some oil for my nail beds, an awesome cuticle spoon and a new foot file so I can start getting at my winter-worn feet. 

And these were FREE SAMPLES!!! Woooohooooo!!!!! I love FREE!!!

And my very first bottle of AvoJuice! It was on clearance for like $3. I had to try it. 

OH NOEZ!!!!!!! 

Needless to say I'm grounded from polish shopping for a bit. I will buy my Helmer and I think I'm good for a while. We'll see though. I know I'll be a sucker with all the summer polish comes out. :) 


  1. Ouch! the CND's did you wrong at Cosmoprof. But Those China Glazes are awesome at that price!

    Love your haul! Absolutely think you deserve it since it's tax season. Lol.. I'm such an enabler!

    I want those Milanis! Gahhh!
    Thanks for swatching them and adding to my wishlist. lol.

    1. Yeah, I sold 2 of the CND's. So not quite as bad. And the Milanis are great!!! They aren't the best holos out there, but a good value in my opinion.

  2. Awesome deal on the CG nail polish. Glad you had a good time. That's all that matters. I will be sending you a picture hopefully 2maro. So should be off & running by Sun or Monday! Yippee!
    Much love

  3. You did great! Everyone needs to treat themselves sometimes!

  4. Awesome haul! Love the colors you got. It's ok to splurge once in a while :D You definitely deserve it!

  5. Awesome haul!! I had to mentally fight myself today in Sally's to not get the new China Glaze Electropop collection! >_<

    1. Yeah, I didn't see anything I really wanted out of that batch. I am really wanting to get their magnetic line. The brown and blue are hot!

  6. OMG that's so beautyfull, I'd like too have as some varnish

    1. Yeah, I don't splurge too often like this. But luckily I had a few extra bucks to spend. Thanks for the comment! :)

  7. Milani 3D Holographic Polishes are so AWESOME I love that

    1. Yeah, I've been shopping holos for a while. I like this set bc it's pretty and it's cheap. I can't see spending $14 on one polish when I can have a whole set of holos for around that price.
