Nails – July 2012

I painted my nails a lot this past month. I tried to change them every few days because I have so much nail polish I bought from April-June that I haven’t tried yet.

Recent Purchases 4/16/12 Sometimes things just work

Have you ever had one of those days where you shop all day and you can’t find what you’re looking for? Well, it wasn’t one of those days for me! The other day when I went to run some errands and shop I found everything I was looking for and had been wanting to find.

First, I had been on the hunt for the MAC limited edition Extra Dimension MSF highlighter in Superb that came out early this month and I haven’t been able to get it online. Last week I went to a Macy’s near my work place and of course they were sold out. So shopping morning I called a few Mac stores and they were sold out. One was ordering more so I gave me my name and number to call me when the products came in. I wasn’t able to reach the Macy’s Macs because I called before the store opened. When I went to a Macys at the mall I was at I found it! I was so shocked and happy that I didn’t even bother to look for other products!

Here it is in all it’s glory!

The main reason I wanted this was because when the Laura Mercier highlighter came out around Christmas time I wasn’t able to find it anywhere and I wanted it so bad. It’s very similar to this. They both are a rose gold tone highlighter and so when this came out, I had to have it! I’m still considering getting a back up when the other MAC store calls me. It’s so beautiful on the skin, and I think it’ll look even better with a tan!

I went to return some stuff and I also found some great things at F21 that I just could not believe I found! First, I found a hot pink zip up hoodie that’s thin for spring and summer.

I also have been wanting a thin off the shoulder sweater type shirt in a heathery grey and I finally found one I liked.
Photobucket

I also found a pair of light blue striped shorts.
Photobucket

And best of all, I found a bright creamsicle orange t-shirt!
Photobucket

You can’t believe how long I’ve wanted these items and they’re all pretty inexpensive too!

Also I stopped by Sallys again and my boyfriend bought me some more nail polish because the sale is still going on.

I picked up Orly Fantasea and it’s gorgeous!
Photobucket
I haven’t worn it yet or had time to swatch it but it looks amazing in the bottle.

I also picked up this Orly silver in dazzle.
Photobucket
I have other silvers but this one was calling me because it looks like there’s something in there, like chunky silver. I don’t know how to describe it but it does not look like a normal silver.

And then I picked up China Glaze flip flop fantasy.

Photobucket
The color is crazy cute, it’s this bright coral tone pink that I just love but the texture is not great. It’s not a creamy formula, it’s almost matte so it applies really streaky. It took four coats to get it that opaque. This will not be a polish I wear a lot.

And that’s it for my haul. There’s still time in April so I will probably pick up a few more orly’s and China Glazes before the month is up. I just hope they’re better formulated.


Recent Purchases – 04/05/2012

Back again with of course more hauling. This is like the crazy week of sales or something! Everything is on sale this week! Sephora has a 15% off deal right now and then Ulta has 20% off starting tomorrow and Sallys is having a nail polish sale as well!

Let’s start out with a bit of clothing I purchased last week. I got this cute peplum dress from forever21 but it’s a bit big so I have to make it shorter and a bit tighter.
Photobucket
I still haven’t decided what to do with the mesh top part yet.

Next is this cute black and white striped top that I’ve been searching what seems like forever for.
Photobucket
It’s got this great mesh at the top shoulder part that makes it sort of 80’s feeling.

Then I got two dresses from Charlotte because they were on sale. First I got this little black number for going out.
Photobucket

Then I tried this beautiful colbalt blue dress on and decided I had to have it.
Photobucket

I also picked up a bit of jewelry from F21. I got this three ring set that I’m still not sure how to wear yet.
Photobucket
This is how I’m wearing it right now. I tried stacking it on one finger but they’re too thick to all sit nicely and the rings are all the same size so that didn’t make sense.

I also picked up this great circle necklace.
Photobucket
I love it because it sits flat against my collar and chest.

And finally I found this coral orange version of my white necklace I got last time.
Photobucket
I love it because the colors so interesting and great for summer and spring.

And then I got this bracelet set to stack this summer. It’s the only beige suede piece I have.
Photobucket

Next are some great nail polishes because for some reason I’ve been on a crazy polish binge lately.
Photobucket
It must be all the deals happening. I got so many because Sally’s is on sale for buy two get one free on all polish. And their prices are cheaper than Ulta too I realized. For instance Orly is $8 at Ulta but only $6 at Sally’s and only $5 if you’re a member.

First I picked up two random sinful colors from Walgreens though. I got this darker Tiffany blue type color called sweet dreams.
Photobucket

Then I got this cool purple color in Zeus. It’s a darker shimmery purple with a sort of red sheen under, really interesting.
Photobucket

I also picked up two sets of three polishes from Sallys because of the sale. First I purchased three China Glazes. The first one is this beautiful blue grey color called Sea Spray.
Photobucket

Then I got this nude with peachy undertone color called Sunset Sail.
Photobucket

And then I got the classic For Audrey.
Photobucket

I’ve also been wanting to try Orly polishes lately because I just love the bottle and the handle design and the colors are also quite different. They just look so unique and opaque in the bottles. First I picked up this color called You’re Blushing that I’ve been wanting.
Photobucket
It’s this cool tone grey purple that actually comes on a lot less harsh than it looks in the bottle. It looks quite feminine for it’s color tone.

I also picked up Lollipop, a bright lilac shade.
Photobucket
I love this color! It’s so cheeky and cute.

Lastly, I picked up this milky nude pink color in Prelude to a kiss.
Photobucket
I love the opaqueness of it and the bright but milky nude shade. I can’t wait to wear this when I’m tanner.

That’s all for my haul. I’m sure with the great sales still happening you’ll be seeing more.
