A little haul entry regarding my current obsession. As I've mentioned I don't know why but nail polishes have been catching my eye these days. I hop over to nail polish blog sites such as Scrangie and AllLacqueredUp before beauty blogs.
This is a collective haul of course, did not purchase everything in one day though I did receive them all on the same day. Talk about nail polish overdose!
Here's a troupe-shot to kick things off, and because I think this would make a pretty bad-ass blog post icon (those who use onsugar feed would understand what I mean).
Starting out, I'm going to feature the stuff I got from Kim's (rainyydays) spree awhile back. Most of the ladies have collected their nail stuff already, but one of the polishes I had ordered was out of stock so I waited for them to re-stock, send it to Kim before I collected them all.
All the polishes I picked up from this spree were from China Glaze.
Also, Kim was super sweet to have included some MAC pigment samples when handing me my loot. It was really nice of her, because we were talking about the MAC sale and I said I couldn't go because of school so she thought to hand some pigment samples to me.
It just so happens both pigments are colors I've been wanting to try out. Thank you again Kim! (:
Now on to the nail polish haul I made, most of the polishes I got were from China Glaze's Up & Away collection, which you can see swatches of here since I am not doing swatches of these just yet. At least not in this entry.
I also picked up some other China Glaze colors I have been dying to get my hands on.
I am totally excited I finally got my hands on Secret Periwinkle and For Audrey. I can't even explain how many times I have seen people/youtube gurus wear these colors and how much I wanted to get them.
Next up are just three polishes I had gotten from various online e-sellers or livejournal sellers, for fellow Singaporeans who are familiar to that term. I got these all from a range of about S$8-10 with postage.
I have been rather attracted to Color Club (and Nubar) from Scrangie's swatches. I did one of those mock-shopping whereby you fill up your cart but never hit check out, and I had about 50 something dollars worth of Color Club polishes I really wanted. Sigh~ Anyone spree-ing from 8ty8beauty? (:
I did not manage to swatch all the polishes for this entry, though a quick google search on Scrangie would definitely bring up swatches you want. I will be 'featuring' these polishes over time on 'Nail at the Moment' sort of entries on my blog.
As I have mentioned on twitter, I finally understand the urge to change nail polish shades once every 2-3 days even though the polish is still looking fresh and new.
Really quickly, I want to throw something extra in.
The other day I dropped by the Isetan Wisma Anna Sui counter and collected an eyelash curler. I use the term 'collected' because I didn't pay for it, it was an arrangement done by the lovely people at Anna Sui.
Long story short, what happened was during the Anna Sui Blogger Event, Mag (makeupstash) and I were chatting about the eyelash curler and someone from Anna Sui said that he'll see what he can do. I thought it was just a polite statement, but who knew!
This curler retails for S$19 in stores. I think the main reason why I'm so attracted to it is the very stragetically pretty color combination, else it could just be like any other eyelash curler.
It almost makes me feel like doing a black/purple-blue nail polish color combo. Picture black polish with Color Club's Pucci-licious as tip colors.
So that's basically it! Since this is mainly a nail polish post, I'm going to just end it with another random nail polish group shot.
Thanks for reading!
Anna Sui eyelash curler was provided to me by the brand - everything else featured (except for the MAC pigment samples) I had purchased on my own.
