Or, why it's going to be easy not to buy any polish during February. (So long as China Glaze doesn't release their new holographic polishes in the US.)
I ended up with over 35 new (or new-to-me) polishes this month, the above photo is missing a few because they are either on loan or scattered through my house. January was a good month for polish because all my end-of-the-year sale purchases arrived along with a few sakes that took place right at the beginning of January.
I snagged some Black Cat Lacquer polishes from my wishlist, they are: I Want Candy, Let Them Eat Cake, Put a Bird On It, and Women & Women First. These came from etsy. These are all so, so pretty!
I had a most wonderful package of Different Dimension nail polish arrive. Mostly colors that I've helped name, but a few other pretties to swatch and review, too! I've gotten to try most of these already, and their posts are up on the blog. The polishes shown above are: Honesty Feels A Lot Like Mean, Orbital, Vervain, Aorta Miss You But I Don't, All Red-y In Love, A Love Hue, and Love Her? I Don't Even Lacquer! Not pictured because it is on loan to my Mom: Yours, Mine, and Flowers. You can find these polishes on etsy.
I picked up a couple discontinued polishes from Laquerlicious, Invitation Only and Mint N Chip Frappe. Along with those I was sent three minis to review, Melted Ice Cream, Rainbow Sugar, and Tart Taffy. Go check out those swatches! These also came from etsy!
Lush Lacquer had a sale, so I picked up my first polishes from them. The colors I picked are Glitter Girls, Mr. Bubble, Oopsie Daisy, Pebbles, Pink Panther and Slumber Party. These are all so cute! Visit the Lush Lacquer shop on etsy.
I snagged a couple OPI polishes from my wishlist, My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Don't Touch My Tutu!
When Zoya had their promo for three polishes my husband got me a few cremes from my wishlist: Breezi, Jolene and Wednesday.
These polishes were partly from a trade and given to me. Pure Ice Material Girl, Milani Hot Pink, China Glaze Peachy Keen and Luna, KBShimmer Oh Splat!
And nail polish in another form - jewelry! Sweet Tips Nails had an amazing sale, so I picked up some necklaces and other accessories. These are really cute! The shipping prices are really good, too. And yes, these came from etsy, too!
So, a pretty good haul, I'd say! A lot of polish to keep me busy this month and a lot of it from indie sellers. The plan this month is to be good and not buy much. ;P
