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?


  1. woah 4.99 each for opi which store is that?? damn! lol great haul! my boyfriend would probably kill me if he saw me haul this much! lol!

  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!

  3. Woah! _THIS_ is a purchase! XD 2012... Should we believe this? ;D

  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.

  6. I have so many untried polishes lol, I always buy them and forget about them. This really made me want to polish shop though!
