Before we talk about 2012, let's finish off 2011.
Ah, December. The month of copious shopping and money-spending.
Let's see just how many bottles of polish ended up in my shopping cart or in my mailbox in December...
I bought quite a few sets of things, for good prices:
Color Club - Backstage Pass Collection
Barielle Shades 5-pack (Swizzle Stix, Decadence, Buddha-ful, Du Unto Others, Slate of Affairs)
China Glaze Memorable Moments minis ($6!) (Oxygen, Stellar, Bridezilla, Silver Lining)
Color Club Femme Fatal minis ($5!) (Worth The Risque, Revvvolution, Where's the Soiree?, French Tip)
I got a Secret Santa package: (Thanks Brenda! You totally spoiled me!)
China Glaze - Sea Spray
China Glaze - Medallion
China Glaze - Party Hearty
Savita - Purple Hologram
Set of 9 Wet N Wild minis
I got an awesome Brazillian swap! (Thanks Marilia!)
Butter London - Stroopy
Lynnderella - Gotta Love Brains
Hits - Rocker Chick
Hits - 367
Hits - 368
Ana Hickman purple polish
I picked up 4 of the new Finger Paints flakies (for a good price with a good coupon!)
Twisted, Asylum, Flecked, Motley.
Santa brought me three polishes:
Nicole by OPI - It's All About The Glam
Nicole by OPI - Kim-pletely In Love
Nicole by OPI - Follow Me On Glitter
Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Ruby Diamond (Thanks Hayley!)
China Glaze - White Cap (free!)
China Glaze - How About A Tumble? (Thanks Chelsea's blogsale!)
Pretty and Polished - Midnight Rider (Thanks Chelsea's Etsy!)
Hard Candy black mini ($1!)
Nicole by OPI - I'm A Belieber (Thanks Rhonni!)
Del Sol - Trick-Or-Treat (clearance, $2.47!)
Cosmetic Arts - No name green with pink shimmer
Awful iPhone photo but look at that! Green with strong pink shimmer? I had to buy it because of how different it is. Anyone know if this has a name?
As I mentioned once before, I was chosen by Llarowe to be one of her swatchers so I had a Glitter Gal haul! I'm going to begin swatching these babies as soon as I'm done with this massive post.
This month was bad. I'm a sucker for deals.
Now let's talk about 2012!
My January haul is already bad, too. I know what is on the way to me... But just know, in advance, that I got amazing deals. And I'm going to try not to buy much more in January.
(I'm also not buying clothes in January... Or shoes...)
It's going to be hard for all of us polish addicts to stay in control in 2012... Here's some reasons why:
I might as well give China Glaze my wallet now. Really. Just take it.
Zoya keeps killing me too...
Have. You. Seen. The. Swatches? Skylar, Tru, and Lotus will be joining my stash ASAP.
Essie is up to her usual tricks...
Most of those don't thrill me but there are a few interesting ones.
Orly's new collection looks potentially promising. I'll wait for swatches.
I haven't heard anything from Color Club for 2012 but I'm sure they'll get a chunk of cash from me, too.
My wallet gets a little sad when OPI does such awesome collections.
Actually, my wallet is a little sad about 2012.
I'm off to do some swatching! Have a lovely day!
