January + February Haul!!!
You know what time it is! That's right, the time where I show off all the casualties of my addiction. I did have a nobuy in February (that was successful, may I add), but I did receive a few polishes for my birthday, so it wasn't a polish-less month :P January was a pretty big month, I got a bunch. But majority of these polishes came from two blog sales, so I wasn't that bad ;)
Anyways, I am way too good at pointless gab. Let's get to the polish, don't we?
Here is the Miscellaneous stuff from January. I already blogged about the green Zoya; Mitzi, which I grabbed from Trade Secrets for $5. Being the Julep addict I am, I had to get three more. I'm not as bad as you think though! I won Kathleen, Chelsea and Viola (clockwise from top left) from a giveaway :) I've been saving up my Jules for a full nail wardrobe one month, so the Juleps should -in theory- slow down for a little bit. Lastly are these two Ruby Wings in Birdie and Wildflower I got from Winners for a dollar each. Yes! You heard that right! Only two bucks for the both of them :D They aren't too different, but I've wanted these forever and they were such a steal that I couldn't pass them up.
One of my blog sale swap hauls. I swapped with Amanda from Fashion Footing for these babies. Sadly, her blog sale is finished, but she had 6 polishes for $22 shipped! That's like the price of the Illamasqua alone! I went a little over the budget for her stuff (oops!) but she gave me the OPI mini set as only one polish, and added in the Revlon for nothing, so it was so worth it :D From right to left here's OPI Number One Nemesis, Essie Wicked, Revlon Pineapple Fizz, Sephora By OPI Matte Top Coat, OPI Stranger Tides, OPI Just Spotted The Lizard, Illamasqua Gamma, OPI Into The Night, and Sally Hansen HD Byte. Whoo, that was a mouthful! What a great deal though, huh? It was more than I wanted to buy/spend, but can you blame me for jumping on this deal?
Now is a couple of things from Ashley's blog sale (she has taken a indefinite hiatus, but she's an awesome blogger so I hope she's back soon!). I swapped these from her, and am super happy considering I got two huge lemmings, Electric Eel and Kiss Me Mistletoe, along with a bunch of other wants! Can you say yay?!?! I sure can :D Here are Electric Eel by OPI, GR8 by China Glaze, Kiss Me Mistletoe by China Glaze, Pull Me Close by China Glaze, and Chunky Holo Black and Twinkly Love, both by Kleancolor.
Finally, the goodies from my lovely birthday! Me and a couple friends acted much younger than we should, and spent a day at Playdium. I'm so happy I got the two OPI Liquid Sands, I put out many, many hints about them and was thrilled when I saw them. I also must add that the blue Physician's Formula is a jelly! Win! Anyways, here are OPI Stay The Night and Get Your Number, Sephora+Pantone Universe Reflecting Pond, A.Co Ultra Party, and Physician's Formula Fashion Icon
Set (they don't have individual names, sorry!).
Wow! That was way more than I thought I had grabbed! Oops! But it isn't too bad when you think of it. It is 30 polishes, but spread over two months. Plus... I really only bought three, and two of those were a dollar each. Justified! LOL, spoken in the true words of an addict :P
Also, sorry it's such a long post! Cheers to you if you read to the end!
So, what did you get this month? Do you ever go on Nobuys? Are you successful with them?
