Whoops, I totally forgot to post this on the last day of March like I normally would!

Other random things I bought:

That's 69 polishes. Whoops.
The Essence's were so cheap... And the OPI's were on sale... And almost everything else was a swap.


  1. WOW - that's a big haul! But then cannot say I have not had months where I picked up that many or more! But then I don't have nice folks sending me stuff like you as a great blogger does. I need to do a blog just so I can have some followers to hold blog sales - I so need to trim my stash. Storage is a problem but the database amazingly keeps holding as much as I get!

    1. there's a community on livejournal called polishsale where you can have a blogsale without having a blog!

  2. Ha ha, now I don't feel so bad about my 47 bottles of polish and 4 bottles of base/top coats!!

  3. Lucky you, my fiance get's upset when I buy yet another polish and all together I have less than 100 polishes...

  4. NIce! I wish I could have done as well as you! Fantasy Fire is DEFINITELY on my lemming list.

  5. Wow! And yeah, every excuse is good;)

  6. this is a fantastic haul! I love it!
    No way the Essences's from Shoppers count, they were pretty much free right! ;) lol

  7. i had to show this to my grandma she thinks i have kind of a problem bc i have aroun 40 polishes...
    i'm glad you find sales in such a pretty colors!!
