Haul: OPI, Revlon, Victorious & I'm On A Polish "No Buy" Ban

It's official. I'm not buying any more polish until 2012. After doing my haul on Monday night I realized that there could be a ton more OPI colours on clearance at different locations that I might have missed on Monday night. At $4.99 a pop I couldn't quiet the polish voices in my head saying "You can't pass up this deal!" ... so, I went to another store and found more. By more I mean 15 more. Plus 5 Revlons ($1.62 each on clearout) ... aannndd a 4 pack of polishes from Wal-Mart ($5).

Like I said. No more polish until 2012.



An overview of the OPI polishes I purchased.
Way too lazy to type out the names. If something catches your 
attention comment below and I will let you know!



L-R: Colada Fizz, Pineapple Fizz, Orange Fizz, Watermelon Fizz, Grapefruit Fizz

This set I found at Wal-Mart for $5, what a deal! The only name I can 
seem to find is "Victorious" so that's what I will brand them as. They 
didn't come with names so I have named them; see picture below.

L-R: Oil Slick, Black Shimmer, Red Velvet, Navy Shimmer

The polish I named 'Oil Slick' reminds me of Orly's Space Cadet and Gosh's Purple Heart which, sadly, I don't own. It also reminds me of a darker version of Wet'n'Wild Gray's Anatomy (Fast Dry) which I do have in my collection.

Lastly, before I go run and hide from my receipts and bemused husband, I just want to point over to the right where I have posted a new poll. I'd like to swatch all of my polishes and I'd love to get some feedback from you as to what you would like to see first. Since I am on a "no buy" until the end of the year (we'll see how that goes...) it seems like a good time to go through all my untrieds. Go ahead, vote, and let me know!

What percentage of your collection consists of untrieds?

  2. Lol! I bought a ton of polishes the other day, too. I keep telling myself I'm going to go on a September "low buy" but I've ALREADY looked at polish and found some I want to buy and it's only been September for 2 hours... I am pathetic!

  4. Haha! I haven't done a big haul in awhile as I have far more untrieds than I will publicly admit :P but better to get em on sale than at full price right?
    One of those looks like Here Today Aragon Tomorrow which I loooove for fall. Out of blackened polishes I think blackened greens are my nearest & dearest.

  5. I'm on a warm-tone kick so that photo of the OPI shades you bought made me so happy! I just wanna stare at it and feel the warmth. As for your question, about 30% of my polish collection I would consider untried- but only on myself. I swatch all my new polishes as soon as I get home on nail wheels.
