February Haul, Part Uno

Back again! Told you I had some catching up to do! First and foremost I want to apologize that these are not the best pictures. I have been fighting with my digital camera, so my photos recently have been taken using my cell phone. (Samsung Galaxy S II, not too shabby honestly. . .right now it is taking better photos than my $400 camera!) I am thinking it is time to invest into a new camera, let me know if you have any suggestions! :)

Today I have another haul post for you. Sorry I forgot to take a photo of it all together! But it doesn't seem like I bought as much if I keep it separate instead of all together. ;) But I have over 100 polishes that I will be adding to my blog sale, so I don't feel so bad purchasing more! 

I have had my eyes on the HITS No Olimpo holo line and they were finally available on llarowe! There were also 3 HITS flakies I had been waiting to come back in stock and another a-england holo to complete my collection.

(L-R) Princess Sabra (Tristam's Eye's), Lambada, Can Can, Twist, Dionisio, Hera, Zeus and Apolo

You saw my NOTD post already, here is the whole Cult Nails Let's Get Nekkid Collection! :)

(L-R) Toxic Seaweed, Mazo, Baker, Tulum and Swanbourne

Julep offered $20 mystery boxes as a Valentine's Day promo. I was hanging on to a a voucher that I purchased for $20 to get $40 worth of Julep product and I was able to use that towards the box! What a steal! I love the mystery boxes and am super lucky to have gotten one of the higher end ones! Included was lip gloss, nail growth revitalizing serum, nail appliques (not photographed), age defying hand brightener, top coat for hair (not photographed), cuticle oil, fast dry top coat, glitter pot and 7 nail colors!

 (Polishes only, top to bottom) Shania, Stella, Anne, Helena, January, Demi and Gwyneth.

Butter London had a 30% off sale that I had to take advantage of! Perfect opportunity to add to my small BL collection!

 (L-R) Wallis, Dosh, Disco Biscuit, Victoriana, Henley Regatta and Knackered.

I finally recieved my first order from Nerd Lacquer! Amanda had promised a special color to be included if the order was processed after her normal time frames so I was actually happy that it took longer than expected! Largo was the special color (get it?) and ended up being my favorite! Square glitter!! Not that all of her polishes aren't just as amazing! Her Etsy shop was recently restocked and I have more on the way that I will share with you next time! Amanda has temporarily closed the shop to get caught up on orders but she will be back soon!

 (L-R) I Aim To Misbehave, Nebula, Quasar, Crunchy Frog, Purely Logical, All of Time & Space and Largo

Another Etsy purchase, this time from the seller PamsAndKin. I love the colors she has to offer and that they are all 3 free!

(L-R) Toy Soldier, Electric Dream, THIS Year, Enchanted, Left Coast Envy and Lady Luck

Etsy has several sellers to choose from to buy custom nail polish! Windestine caught my eye with the beautiful, glittery Rainforest! Green holo glitter. . .enough said! The seller was also sweet to include a small bottle of her color Endangered "Blue" Loons. :)

 (L-R) Rainforest and Endangered "Blue" Loon

I also came across the seller atrophie on Etsy. Her selection is limited but once again, I can't say no to green and glitter! :)

(L-R) New Math and Ectoplasm

The final order I placed on Etsy was from Pretty & Polished. Keep checking her shop as she is in the process of restocking! :) These all have a beautiful holo sparkle!

(L-R) Sphere, Martian Salad and Cryptid

Okay, it's official. . .I am obsessed with ManGlaze! I just can't get over the names, artwork and the matte-ness that turns to glittery, shimmery goodness with a top coat! LOVE.

(L-R) Butt Taco, ILF, Fuck Off And Dye, Matte is Murder and Mayonnaise

There has been a lot of talk about Jordana Glitters, so I stopped by my local KMart and picked some up! At $1.99 each I didn't feel bad buying them all. Especially since they are $2.99 on Jordana's site and on cherryculture! 

(L-R) Gemstones, Rhinestones, Funky Gold Town, Copper Blaze, Sequins, Pixie Pink, Celebration, Magenta Magic, LA City Nights, Cosmic, Blue Bash and Celestial

Several weeks ago Good Morning America offered a special for 50% off these 3 Deborah Lippmann colors! The best part was that you got free shipping if you bought all 3!

(L-R) Happy Birthday, Across The Universe and Today Was A Fairytale

I placed another order from Sephora so I could get my hands on the new Spring colors. The Illamasqua made sure I got free shipping. :)

(L-R) Scarab, I Only Shop Vintage, Paisley Attention To Me, What Aura Gonna Wear? and It's Totally Karma

And finally more nail mail from my friend Savannah! OPI's Pirates collection had several colors that I loved but wasn't able to get my hands on. Savannah was able to find these for me on clearance at Ulta! Yay! She also sent me another beautiful Orly to add to my collection! 

(L-R) Rock The World, Skull & Glossbones, Stranger Tides and Mermaid's Tears

What do you think of my haul? What have you hauled recently? Have you been able to cross any lemmings off your list?

Look for my blog sale to be posted by tomorrow!
