Early in my blogging days (like a whole year ago lol) I did some haul posts. Alas, I got a bit embarrassed by how much polish I was buying. it felt like I was showing off or something. So I stopped posting about what-all I bought tho' my buying habits didn't change.
Turns out I'm an absolute polish ho!
Then along came the Jingle All The Way Giveaway & my request for an entry that asked y'all to post in da comments what you wanted to see on my blog in 2014. Now I know that 2014 hasn't started yet, but why wait to give y'all what you want. Hauls are one of da many things that have been requested, so I'm willing to give it another try.
I had been doing Does It Stamp? posts on Sunday where I showed y'all what polishes I have that can be used for stamping & show up when stamped over dark colors. I plan on continuing to test polishes & posting da results on Sundays, just not every Sunday cuz I've run low on polishes to test of late. This is mostly due to buying more indies & specialty polishes. Some of the indies might work for stamping, but I'm resisting even testing them cuz to me they're too special to use for stamping tho' I'm willing to use them for da base color. We'll see what happens cuz I've been known to change my mind.
Anywho, da polishes I have for show & tell for you today are 2 sets of indies that arrived by snail in da last week plus a nifty score at a local store.
1st up ~ Shirley Ann Nails & Such
Da lovely & oh so tolerant Cherish (I goofed up my order & she fixed it for me.) had a Black Friday BOGO sale...so I bought 3 of her very reasonably priced & yummy polishes & got 3 more for free! Here's what I got & it's ALL Michelle's fault cuz she did a haul & review post you can see HERE that mesmerized me into ordering. She does that a lot. LOL
Mile Long Margarita
Shot Gun Wedding
Candy Coated Poison
In Loving Memory
(this one was my tipping point in M's post lol)
Next up ~ Sally Hansen NEW Sugar Shimmers!
Mr Inky & I stopped at Fred Meyer's Thursday night for some cat litter (heaven forbid we run out with 5 cats in da house!) & of course I had to meander thru da cosmetics on my way to da cat aisle, just to see if they had anything new. Boy howdy...did they! I hadn't seen these on any blog yet, so & grabbed up all 6 from da display along with a BOGO1/2 off no limit coupon. SCORE! Some of da colors look a wee bit similar to SH's texture polishes from earlier in da year, but where those were mostly a crème finish...these have lil sparklies!
Mint Tint 05
Work of Tart 04
Sugar Coated 02
(this one may be a dup for SH Royal Icing)
Berried Under 06
Cinny Sweet 03
Plum Sugar 01
Last, but not least by any means ~ The Lady Varnishes
When Mishka of Accio Lacquer did THIS post, followed by THIS post...I naturally headed straight for The Lady Varnishes Etsy site! DOH! The release of Kirsten's anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show collection was still a week out. *sadness* So I picked up these pretties to tide me over until I could order da RHPS polishes my Inky paws desired on December 1st.
(I just got notification yesterday that my order has shipped. Squeeeeee!!!)
All of Kirsten's nifty themed polishes come with a color coordinated charm (da design & metal options can vary by collection, but da star is most commonly offered in silver or copper) plus you can pick a lovely scent (or not) as you desire for your polishes & all bottles arrive in their own lil color coordinated organza bag. If you order enuf polish, she'll include a chain to match your charms so you can make a necklace. I made a necklace & earrings for myself last night cuz this wasn't my 1st order from Kirsten & I've been collecting her silver star charms until I had enuf to go nuts. LOL
I'll show them off in a post at some point.
Fantastic! (The 9th Doctor)
You Heard About Pluto?
I got Mischievous Maid & Bad Butler in a B2 deal
that doesn't appear to be available anymore. Neither is Bad Butler...
but you can still call Mischievous Maid yours if you move fast!
All of these will eventually get worn & blogged about in detail.
Really! They're too gorgeous & fun to sit about collecting dust.
I may not show y'all EVERYTHING I buy in these haul posts, but I will show you da really kewl & nifty stuff cuz I'm a great enabler & spender of other peeps moola.
