nail polish haul

there was an awesome deal at the trade secrets in the holt renfrew centre - 2 essie or opi nail polishes for $12. or at least i thought it was a good deal until the sale price dropped again to 2 for $10. oops. after purchasing 16 nail polishes at the higher price, i had told myself i would not set foot in that store again. and so far, i have not. here are the 16 polishes i picked up in two video installments!

  2. obviously, I love all of these! Can't you bring your receipt in and be all, bitch please?

    I got into Julep Maven for a little while but so many of their polishes are metallic or pearly or shimmery, which is just not my jam. But I love getting mail so much, I didn't cancel for way too long. Luckily, there is a facebook page for people that want to trade julep colours, so I've switched out a few.

    Now you need to do a post with you wearing all those gorgeous colours!

    1. i know, right? i would but i actually tossed all my receipts. never thought i would need them again!

      not a huge fan of metallic or shimmer polish either but oddly enough i love love love glitter. i don't wear it too often because i hate taking it off.

      i've worn a few polishes already (wearing heart throb right now) but i always forget to take photos.

  3. Thanks for sharing!!:)
    I'm going to get the OPI"strange tides" and "my point exactly" for sure!!
    They are the colors I have been looking for~ I think red nail polish is very sexy & classic, but afraid to try it >"< Wrong red will easily turns "Wow" to "Huh" :)After watching your review video, I decided to give it a try and will purchase the "big apple red". Wish me luck!~
