catch up haul! miss me?

Hey everyone! Look at that - I was on unplanned hiatus again. Whoops. Did you miss me? Let's catch up.

I don't even really have a good excuse this time for being inactive, so I totally admire bloggers who have a full time job and families and stuff and still manage to blog on the regular because clearly I am not capable and I don't even have a job at the moment (and certainly no kids). I am in grad school, so there's one decent excuse I suppose.

I've also got this prettttty great new boyfriend (Hi, Andy!) who's been bugging me to get back on the blogging game because he thinks it's really cool (because duh, it is). He even helped me organize some of my nail polish AND make swatch sticks. Legit. So, he's a keeper, and I'm sure he will keep reminding me to stay on track. I know it seems like a lot of the blogging world has transitioned to mostly Instagram and quicker platforms like that but hey, someone's still gotta keep writing a whole bunch of nail polish nonsense somewhere to keep us all in the know.

I've got a few goals in mind for this new blogging spurt, which I will hopefully make good on:
1) Learn about all the new and upcoming stuff so I don't feel left out.
2) Get my Facebook page up to 10,000 likes. (It's been so close for so long!)
3) Have a blog sale. (Lemme know in the comments if you'd be interested in that!)
4) Run a sweet giveaway!

Anyway. I haven't done a haul post since February. So there's six months in there plus most of September that I haven't done (or even thought about). And obviously, being somewhat out of the game, my polish shopping has gotten way, way less shameful. But I still have my moments. Let's see what I can remember...


In March, my true love Chalkboard Nails sent me a package full of love, and of course nail polish. She sent me my first LVX polishes in such fun colors, my first CND Vinylux, and some Color Club minis because girl knows I love me some CC.

LVX - Midori
LVX - Porcelaine
LVX - Laguna
CND Vinylux - Grand Gala
CND Vinylux - Dazzling Dance
CND Vinylux - Chiffon Twirl
Color Club - Tiny Umbrella (mini)
Color Club - Sea-ing Blue (mini)
Color Club - The Islands (mini)
Color Club - Frozen Daquiri (mini)

My friend Tracy came to my rescue when she spotted the China Glaze Electric Nights collection at our local beauty supply this spring. I was stuck at work all week that week and never would have made it there before the good stuff sold out, so not only did Tracy pick them up for me, but she delivered them to my work. Can I get an amen? Thank you Tracy!

China Glaze - Point Me To The Party
China Glaze - Let The Beat Drop
China Glaze - Can I Get An Untz Untz
China Glaze - PLUR-ple
China Glaze - UV Meant To Be

And because I clearly have amazing friends, my pal Jessica sent me a message at like 1 AM one night letting me know there was a huge bin of Nicole by OPI polishes for FIFTY CENTS at a supermarket near me. So naturally I went right away. And got every color. Because duh.

Nicole by OPI - Plum To Your Senses!
Nicole by OPI - Carried Away
Nicole by OPI - Goodbye Shoes
Nicole by OPI - Sweet Daisy
Nicole by OPI - Party Bus
Nicole by OPI - Backstage Pass
Nicole by OPI - Lips Are Dripping Honey
Nicole by OPI - A Lit-teal Bit of Love
Nicole by OPI - Honey-Dew You Love Me?
Nicole by OPI - Diva Into The Pool
Nicole by OPI - Light a Candle
Nicole by OPI - I'll Have The Salmon



In an attempt to remain current and cool, I ordered myself one Enchanted Polish from a Nail Polish Canada restock in April (and the other one pictured was for a friend.) And yum, look at dat ColourPop!

Enchanted Polish - Dream On



While in Florida in May, I found some polishes on clearance because clearance is my bitch.

OPI - My Silk Tie
OPI - Shine For Me
OPI - Christmas Gone Plaid
OPI - So Elegant
OPI - You're So Outta Lime!
OPI - It's All San Andreas's Fault


I needed to be restrained in the Lancome company outlet in Florida because they carry Urban Decay now. Almost just said "I'll have one of everything" but I showed some restraint. The whole thing pictured above only cost $68 so you knowww the deals were insane. My haul included the Electric nail polish trio:

Urban Decay - Deep End
Urban Decay - Gold Mine
Urban Decay - Woodstock

Other than that, a few random purchases I can recall include:
L'Oreal Color Riche - Hello Captain
Essence - Glitz & Glam
Essence - Under The Sea
Essence - Underwater Love
Essence - Rock My World
Nicole by OPI - A Million Sparkles

PHEW! I made it. I think. I definitely missed some in there but who knows what.

It feels good to be typing to you here in this little white box once again - I hope at least some of you are still subscribed to me and excited to hear from me. Drop me a comment below and say hi! And I'll see you again soon.

  7. How My Life Was Transform by Mr Martinez Lexie

    My Name is Nicole Marie from Ohio, United State and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now and i really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life, As i am a struggling mum with two kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my husband encountered a terrible accident last two weeks, and the doctors stated that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again and i could not afford the bills for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that i have no credit card, from there i ran to my father and he was not able to help me, then when i was browsing through yahoo answers i came across a God fearing man (Mr Martinez Lexie) who provides loans at an affordable interest rate and i have been hearing about so many scams on the Internet mostly Africa, but at this my desperate situation, i had no choice than to give it an attempt due to the fact that the company is from United State of America, and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $82,000.00 USD and i payed for my husband surgery and thank GOD today he is ok and can walk, my family is happy and i said to myself that i will shout to the world the wonders this great and God fearing Man Mr Martinez Lexie did for me and my family; so if anyone is in genuine and serious need of a loan do contact this GOD fearing man via Email: ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ) or through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958 thanks
