january haul 2014

Bit late with this thanks to some exams, but without further ado, the first haul of the year!
Admittedly I was a little bad this month.

I think it started when I found a Color Club collection that I've wanted for years. ($9.99 at Winners):
Color Club - Electro Candy
Color Club - Pure Energy
Color Club - Ultra Violet
Color Club - Volt of Light
Color Club - What A Shock!
Color Club - Tangerine Scream

And then I found that nice little duo + clutch on clearance for $9. Can't have enough black and white! (Or a big enough collection of OPI bags.)
OPI - Alpine Snow
OPI - Black Onyx

The sale section of a drugstore provided me with that OPI topcoat trio for $12:
OPI - Snowflakes In The Air
OPI - Matte Topcoat
OPI - Topcoat

Feeling lucky, I hit the supply stores (several times) but the first trip was good and I only let two polishes come home with me.
OPI - This Gown Needs A Crown
OPI - Silent Stars Go By

But I had a weak moment at Walmart and bought some Maybelline Brocade polishes.
Maybelline - Emerald Elegance
Maybelline - Lavishly Lilac
Maybelline - Beaming Blue 

The $1 OPI rule kicked in again at another drugstore. (The rule is you buy it.)
OPI - Care to Danse?

Another supply store trip, another haul. $1 China Glaze? Yep.
China Glaze - This Is Tree-mendous!
China Glaze - There's Snow One Like You
China Glaze - Kalahari Kiss
China Glaze - Duplicity
China Glaze - Winter Holly

And then another drugstore clearance find:
Ruby Wing - Eternal

A gift from a special lady! Thanks LTHP! (Swatches coming soooon)
KBShimmer - Merry Pinkmas

In a hunt to find OPI's Gwen Stefani collection, I accidentally found $2 OPI clearance as well... I haven't gone back to that store since. I left so many behind... 

OPI - I'm Feeling Sashy
OPI - Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
OPI - Number One Nemisis
OPI - Off With Her Red!
OPI - Into The Night
OPI - San Tan-Tonio

Gwen was waiting for me at Sally's.

OPI - Love.Angel.Music.Baby.
OPI - Push and Shove
OPI - 4 In The Morning
OPI - In True Stefani Fashion

And y'all know I got those CSM polishes from Influenster. (Review here)
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Jaded
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Red My Lips
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Pat on the Black

And to top it all off... This baby came home with me finally.
OPI - Pure

If you want a little haul of your own, be sure to enter my giveaway! But there's only a day and a half left so go go go!


  1. Wow nice haul! So many new colors to play with :)

  2. I picked up Pure, too! I was soooo excited to see it. My question is, however...where on earth are you finding OPIs for under $3?! I MUST HAVE THEM NOW.

    1. i get them either at a local drugstore chain that carries a small amount of OPI and they clearance the seasonal stuff soon after it goes out of season, or at a local professional beauty supply that does clearance in large batches every now and then to lessen their inventory. it's one of those hit-or-miss things and you don't find it at big chains usually.

  3. Wow, you did well! I'd kill for 1€ OPI's. Seriously!

  4. Wow, that is a crazy great haul month. I love your OPI rule, lol.

  5. I ALWAYS buy any bottle of MBSW if I find it. It's perfection.

  6. This is such a gorfeous haul! And all those cheap O.P.I's! ♥♥♥

  7. Wow! It's a good prize.

  8. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
