Collective Haul Post

I had a wealth of photos stacking up with items I have 'hauled' lately.. I figure it was time to post them all up before my camera gets angry about having so many photos stockpiled within it.. That and I feel like I need to make a post for the week.. (read: I am procrastinating from schoolwork on my day off!!)

I will start with these gems.. My first ever order from Butter London showed up yesterday! I decided to finally give them a shot - and, from my swatching, I am incredibly happy with them! Now to actually wear them.. Soo pretty though!

We have: British Racing Green, No More Waity Katie, Wallis, Knees Up, Toff, & Bluey. I was honestly most excited for British Racing Green as, to me, it is the green colour that is my dream car: the classic jaguar! It lives up to what I wanted!!



Then I have some polishes I picked up two weeks ago (!!) - they are: WnW Prowler and Blue Jitters; Quo by Orly Celestial Star; Borghese Euro Green and Stellare Notte.

I found the WnW little gems in Zellers and they were the last of their kind. Which basically translates to: must buy. I had read a post over at Sparkled Beauty awhile back, and she had mentioned that Shopper's had a Quo by Orly collection out.. Of course I had to check! The colours are lovely - but, as she said, they mirror some Orly shades. I figure I didn't have one like that so I was allowed to purchase it. Glad I did - it is lovely! Then, also at Shopper's, they were having a sale on Borghese polish. I don't own any of them and the $13.99 price tag never enticed me either for colours that I wasn't overly interested in.. BUT $7.99 polish does entice me a bit more! I nabbed these two shades.. I seemed to be in a glitter/shimmer mood that day!

Here I have the last of my hauled polish as of late.. They are: OPI Crown Me Already, Love & Beauty Mauve Purple and Mauve/Purple/Silver (yeah, they don't have clever names, sadly).

I was hoping that the mauve purple polish would be like any other polish I have bought from F21 and be extremely sheer as I wanted to do the glitter sandwich mani - but noooo, this one just has to be opaque and gorgeous.. My life - soso hard (:

Now on to a non-polish haul that has also been amazing to me.. I am talking about Bath & Body Works!! I am in love and cannot wait to make another purchase from them.. Plus they are going to give me another 20% off with a coupon code.. It basically eats up the shipping cost so I don't have to feel as guilty!





Candles, soaps, a wallflower system and wallflowers.. I really love the wallflower skull - I have an affinity for skulls and I feel it is perfect AND it glows in the dark.. Yeah. Awesome! Plus, my room smells like frosted cupcakes.. I haven't tried the other scents yet - but I definitely love my room smelling like that!!

AND now, if you made it this far.. I am going to post a nail photo. I honestly didn't know what the freak I was going to do with my nails.. So this Harringbone-esue mani was born and poorly executed..


I also have this thing about including a blurry photo lately. I like them? Strange.

Well, I hope everyone is having an amazing day! Talk to you all again soon!!

Celestical Star is my fav among the first 5 that are out already, I'm glad I enabled you :)

You had to order BBW online? With in store purchases, they have a survey to get $10 off $30 coupon, which I have been fully taking advantage of, over and over.

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi
