Yay, my last 2 nail polish packages have arrived! And, yeah, I couldn’t handle myself and bought two more of the new Essence polishes. Shame on me… 😉

Here are the pictures:

Essence Color & Go “Boho Chic” >>> peach with gold shimmer and flakies

Essence Color & Go “Ballerina’s Charm” >>> pastel lilac with subtle silver shimmer

1,55 € each in drugstores

Barry M Chameleon Color Changing polishes in “Chameleon Pink” & “Chameleon Blue”

3,99 GBP each on ebay.co.uk

China Glaze “Pool Party” >>> creme neon pink

China Glaze “Flirty Tankini” >>> shimmer pinky-orange neon

3,99 $ each from ebay.com

OPI “Coney Island Cotton Candy” >>> milky pastel peach >>> 5,99 $

China Glaze “Elephant Walk” >>> greenish-grey shimmer >>> 3,99 $

from ebay.com

Orly “Dayglow” >>> white with blue sheen >>> 5,95 $

Orly “Beach Cruiser” >>> cool toned neon pink

Orly “Glowstick” >>> pure neon yellow

both 6,95 $, all from ebay.com

I tried to make a picture of the blue sheen from the Orly “Dayglow” but I had to darken it a lot so you can see:

There you go! 🙂

By the way, pictures doesn’t do the neon ones justice. They look so much brighter in real life than on photos or in videos. I saw so many swatches of these but was actually pretty much shocked when I hold them in my hands after unpacking. 🙂

So much for this Haul…

As promised, here is my nail polish haul! These are polishes I purchased over the last couple of weeks.

P2 What’s up? Beach Babe “Good Lovin'” >>> 1,95 €

P2 What’s up? Beach Babe “Adventurous” >>> 1,95 €

Essence Reday for Boarding Peel Off Base Coat >>> 1,75 €

Essence Color & Go “Blue Addicted” >>> 1,25 €

The Peel Off Base Coat I just bought to try out. Maybe if it works, it would be a good solution for Glitter polishes, since they are a pain to remove. And as a note, the Essence Color & Go polishes are all on sale for 0,95 € now, since they all going to be discontinued by august. Essence is going to change the bottle shape and size and some of the colors, as well as the price. I obviously got mine before the sale.

Essie “Watermelon”

Essie “Sole Mate”

Essie “Bikini so Teeny”

Essie “All tied Up”

each 7,95 €

Zoya “Lotus”

Zoya “Wednesday”

each 10,40 €

OPI “Into the Night”

OPI “Just spotted the Lizard”

each 5,99 $

OPI “Tease-y does it” >>> 8,- €

The “Tease-y does it” I got from a local Douglas store, which is a beauty departement store chain comparable to Sephora over here. Normally their OPI polishes are 16 €, which I think is ridiculous,  but I wanted that color so bad and so I decided to spend that money anyways. So I was pretty surprised, that at the checkout it was mraked down to 8 €, which is a discount of 50 %! Yay! 🙂

Hope you liked my little Haul. I already ordered some more polishes online, so I will have another Haul up in the next weeks. 🙂

Part 1 of my collection, all my OPIs and Nicole by OPIs. Attention! Pic heavy! 😉

 

So that’s Part 1. Stay tuned, cause, there is a lot more to come… 😉

Guess what… another nail polish haul!!!!

Those are all polishes I’ve purchased during the last week. Only six of them so I did pretty good for an addict, didn’t I? 😉 So here they are up close:

All prices are in € and except the Manhattan polish, I bought them all in several Douglas stores around the country. Just for those who are not from Germany, Douglas is a beauty departement store over here, comparable to Sephora in the US.

The NOPI polishes were on a display with tons of different colors, saying they were all new Kardashian polishes. Are they really from a Kardashian collection? I’ve never seen swatches of those online. Anyways, I bought them cause I really like foily ot metallicy colors at the moment.

The Manhattan & Buffalo polish is a limited edition color I bought at a DM drugstore. And the Douglas color is such a pretty one I can’t believe I have overlooked it for soooo long.

The Essie Mirror Metallics polish I am the most excited for! I don’t know if this collection will be out outside Germany and if so, when. I know Essie is releasing this collection right now over here. There are 5 different colors in it, all metallics. I am on the hunt for them ever since I saw the first pictures, but I could only find Blue Rhapsody so far. And I am sooooo so glad I did. I love the color! It is soo pretty and not streaky at all. I’m wearing it right now and I love it! I’ll definately look out for the other colors and post a seperate haul if I found them. Cause I want them all!!! 🙂

The Essie Marshmellow one was on my wishlist for a while, and when I bought one of the NOPI colors, I saw that they had a little box next to the check out counter, that had reduced Essies in them. There where only two left, one was “Pearly White” and the other was my lovely “Marshmellow”. So I thought I have to give it a nice loving home. 🙂

Here are some swatches of all of them:

Aren’t they all pretty??? I didn’t swatch “Marshmellow” cause it’s just a sheer white color, wouldn’t be very noticable on a white swatch wheel.

What do you think of these color? Have you “hauled” lately?

 

 

Nail polish collection overview April 2012:

I think the count was about 300 bottles then. But I already bought some more. 😉

Next month I wanna buy one of those wall racks, to organize them a little better. I might do a collection overview again if I have found a better storage solution.

Today, I wanted to just something fun. This is a Tag goin’ around on youtube called “Nail Polish Obsession”, and since I am obviously nail polish addicted I decided to participate in that one. Since I don’t do videos on youtube, I will do it blogger-style. 🙂

Let’s get started!

1. What is your favorite nail polish company?

I can’t decide on one single company, so I show you my 3 favorites:

2. Glitter or no Glitter?

Let the pictures speak:

(and that’s not even all…)

3.  OPI, China Glaze or Essie?

If I have to decide between them, I would say Essie. But OPI is pretty close.

4. When do you change your nail polish?

Usually in the evening while watching TV or videos on youtube.

5. What’s your favorite color on your nails?

That depends on my mood. Recently I am more into blues. I am buying blue nail polish like crazy. Before that it was green. But sometimes I just like a classic red or pink nail.

6.  Darks or Brights?

Usually Darks. I love those vampy colors all around the year. I like Brights, but only in “real” summer, with sun, hot temperatures, etc.

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?

Orly Au Champagne with Essie Set in Stones on the ring finger

8. Matte Nails – In or Out?

Out! Never liked them, just not for me.

9. French Manicure?

Love it. Looks really chic and classic, but just when you have longer nails. I don’t like it, when you have supershort nails and just put a white tip on. That doesn’t look good to me.

10.  Favorite Winter color?

I don’t have one specific winter color. I like everything muted and kinda dark, like dark plum colors, greys and vampy reds. And I also like jeweltoned or glitter colors. Here are some examples:

OPI – Lincoln Park after Dark, Zoya – Edyta, Essie – Limited Addiction, OPI – Diva of Geneva

So that’s it. Tag completed. 🙂
