Llarowe Mystery Grab Bags

Llarowe Mystery Grab Bags are available once in a while on Llarowe.com. When I saw they were in stock, I decided to snag two! It is three polishes for $20 which is a great deal!

I don’t know which three would have come together as all six were just in the box together.

Nail Mail Haul! China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection and Vivid Lacquer Buffy the Vampire Slayer Collection

It was quite the mail day today! I’ve now added 15 more polishes to my collection! 6 from the China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection and a bunch from Vivid Lacquer, mostly the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Collection. I’m going to be a busy nail-painting girl!

From left to right: Shell We Dance, Tail Me Something, Sand Dolla Make You Holla, Teal the Tide Turns, Seahorsin’ Around, and Wish Upon A Starfish.

These are supposed to be texture polishes which I’m a huge fan of! I can’t wait to swatch them for you!

And now for the Vivid Lacquer Buffy the Vampire Slayer Collection which I’m extremely excited for!

From left to right: The Bitch is Back, It Must Be Bunnies!, and Some Monster in her Man

From left to right: Band Candy, Demon Magnet, and Five by Five

From left to right: Five by Five, and Bored Now

SPOILER ALERT. Stop reading now if you don’t want to know what the freebie were when ordering on the relesase date.

These two are the freebies Ani included since I bought the whole set and spent a certain amount in her Etsy store. The one on the left is The Gentlemen Are Coming By. That’s right. A secret addition to the Buffy collection!!! It was a wonderful surprise! The one on the right is Trick or Treat? and has a lot of amazing and fun glitters!

Drugstore Nail Haul! aka…Best Day Ever!

If you have great attention to detail, you will have noticed that this is my second post today that is FULL of polish!!! After I got this haul at the grocery store, I came home to discover that the mailman had delivered my May 2013 Julep Maven Upgrade box! To see pics of that, click here.

Back row: Essence Nail Stickers, Essence Dotting Tool, Essence French Tip Guides.
Front row: Revlon Whimsical, Maybelline Blue Blowout, Maybelline Styled Out, L’Oreal Sweet Nothings, Essence Peel Off Base Coat, L’Real New Money, Wet n Wild Bijou Blue, Wet n Wild Night Prowl, Wet n Wild Caribbean Frost, Essence That’s What I Mint!, Essence Off to Miami!

I am very intrigued by this base coat. The idea is that you will be able to peel the polish off later, I guess without needed polish remover. For $3, I thought it was worth the experiment!

It’s raining nail polish in my house today!!! :) :) :)

Daily Lacquer the Slayer Collection

I recently discovered that Daily Lacquer came out with a Buffy the Vampire Slayer themed collection. Of course I had to get it seeing as it’s pretty much my favorite show of all time. I was only able to get 5 of the 6 polishes in my first order but I have the 6th coming! Hooray!

From left to right: Don’t Spike Me, Wicca Willow, Not So Angel, Welcome to the Hellmouth, Slayer Comma The.
Not Pictured: Giles the Ripper (which is Purple)

I am thrilled with this collection and I think it speaks to the characters and concepts from the show. The best part is, I was rewatching all the seasons on Netflix (started before I knew this collection existed) and the day I watched the season finale, this collection came in the mail! Perfect!

I Love Nail Polish Haul

I am loving some of the indie polishes I have so I decided to give I Love Nail Polish a try by purchasing some of their ultra mini bottles.
I selected the following nine and you can look forward to some swatches in the near future.

Candy Apples & Razors, Animal Cookie, Angel Burp

Don’t Trample My Roses, Strawberry Creme, and Cheshire Blues

Blow Pop, Little Mermaid, and It’s a Boy

I think their names are fun and the glitters look amazing and girly! Can’t wait to try them!

Mirenesse Haul including April Glamm Box and Easter Beauty Dips

Lots of fun girly goodness in the mail today! I got another Mirenesse order in the mail today. I had taken advantage of their killer Easter deals. This shipment came a lot faster than my last one. Hooray!

Here are all the little envelopes containing unknown wonderful surprises!

First, I opened my gifts with purchase bag since I knew what those were going to be. On top is a mini gloss that is a clear gloss with little glitters. In the middle is Icon Sealer 24 hours Concealer and on the bottom is a sample of their daily face and neck mineral balm.

Swatch of the clear gloss…so basically, a picture of my hand! LOL


 Easter Dips: Eyes

A full sized shadow palette! Wonderful and beautiful colors! The name of the palette is Conch Pearls

Double Ended eyeliner. One end is brown and the other is black. I’m not sure I really like the double ended stuff because once you use up your favorite end, you’re stuck! Although, they would be great for traveling!

Easter Dips: Face
Absolutely Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and their award-winning Powder Foundation. I did rub my finger in this powder and it is super velvety smooth. I can’t wait to try it tomorrow!


Easter Dips: Lips
A double-ended eyeliner (black) and lip liner (cocoa) and a lipstick in Margerita [sic]. It’s a neutral light brown that will go with a lot of makeup looks.


April 2013 Glamm Box (Makeup Edition)
Inside Out Eye Kohl in black, Cougar Mascara, and 3D Forever Gloss in Honey Bunny. The gloss smells amazing! I apologize for the blurry picture. I didn’t realize how blurry it was until I posted it up here.

Three surprise gifts:
On the left, PowerLift Eye Serum, Shadow Primer, and double ended eye brightening stick. I already have their primer. I’ve never really gone crazy for eye primers. I honestly don’t notice a difference with or without them. I guess I just use that high-quality eyeshadow. Hahaha. The brightening stick has one pale pink end for the water line and a white end for the inside corners of your eye. Could be interesting…


Well, that’s my haul for now! I can’t wait to try them all!

OMG – The China Glaze Hologlam Collection!

Let me set the mood…it’s a dark and stormy Northwest evening. My husband is playing Call of Duty. I’m bored. I decide that I need to go to Sally Beauty to get at least one of the new China Glaze Hologlam collection. I bribe my husband with promises of also going to GameStop. He falls for it. As I’m walking up to Sally Beauty, there is a sign. A sign that must be too good to be true…Buy two, get one free!

I squealed.

I am the luckiest girl in the world! :) They only had 9 of the 12 in the collection, so I’ll have to stalk Amazon or something to find them. Can’t have an incomplete collection, now can I??

Here are teaser pics of all the bottles and I put on Don’t Be a Lunatic. It’s amazing. :P

Group photo!

And for our first guy, Don’t be a Luna-Tic. This is a gorgeous silver/light green. There have been some people on the internet complaining that these aren’t holo-enough. I think that this first one is wonderful! And, it was the least impressive in the bottle so that’s why I did it first. I am one happy camper!
