Nail Mail/Hauls

Only Two Polishes?
I know there's only two bottles of polish, but look at all these goodies! I received more giveaway prizes (lucky girl), and found a bunch of wonderful orange 75% off stickers! I'd been getting new stuff every other week, but this week broke the trend.  Is this the start of a terrible and awesome shopping habit?

First up is from a giveaway I won during the holidays from Nuy Beauty's white makeup giveaway.  This is Make Up For Ever HD Powder and Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow in White.  These are my first products from each brand and I'm excited to try them!

Next is my package from Rochelle at Elle-Hime who shipped my prize crazy crazy fast! Also, it was super safe in this garbage bag type material with a scalloped edged shipping label - I love details.  You're probably more interested in what's inside the cute little box though!

Boom! A Zoya color box with Zoya - Anaka, nail stickers, paillettes, and a pair of cute socks! Also tucked inside was a Zoya color booklet (I'm a sucker for stuff like this) and a personal Hello Kitty'd note! It may not look like it, but Rochelle managed to stuff everything here into the color box - color me impressed.  PS - these boxes are smaller (cuter) than I'd imagined, and really nice! I think I'll put jewelry in mine.

Next is the Milani sale.  I stumbled upon it by accident, but for more info check out Nouveau Cheap's post!  These are my first Milani cosmetics (not nail polish) and I was quite excited to see these 75% off stickers.  Mineral blush in Sweet Rose and Mai Tai, Runway Eyes Shadow in Shamrock, Eye Pencil in True Black, and Color Brilliance pencils in Aqua, Green, and Purple.  I used the purple pencil today and I love it so much!

Okay.  Honestly, I have this weird theory about how Milani chooses to use disgusting packaging so that passersby will avoid their products, leaving them for people like me who know their true awesome potential.  No? You never know.

Okay, last but not least are my miscellaneous CVS purchases.  Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Electric Shock (also 75% off!), the web-famous MAC dupey Wet N' Wild Color Icon 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Comfort Zone (the display said 50% off, but it didn't scan that way and I didn't bother arguing), Wet N' Wild Spoiled in Diamond Heist (perfectly named, terribly photographed), and some french tip guides.

That's it! What do I mean, that's it? That's a lot.  Hopefully I won't have anymore haulage to show for a while...


  1. I love Milani cosmetics but we don't have a CVS where I live!  :(

  2. oh no!! Is it time to send you some gifts?! haha

  3. I love those orange stickers!!
    I have tagged you on my blog

  4. So many lovely things. Love the palette

  5. Alright, I'm only 5 days late to this post, go me!
    I'm really glad that you are happy with your giveaway goodies and thanks for the mention here on your blog.  Can't wait to see what you do with all these goodies!  I was impressed by the little Zoya boxes myself.  Definitely good for things besides the polish!
    You've got a really nice haul here~  thanks for sharing!

  6. I wanted to send you one little bit of word to thank you very much once again considering the lovely information you have provided on this page. It was simply remarkably open-handed of you to grant easily just what most of us would have offered as an electronic book to end up making some dough for their own end, precisely considering the fact that you could possibly have tried it if you ever considered necessary. These tips as well worked like a great way to know that most people have the identical fervor like mine to grasp more in terms of this issue. I'm sure there are thousands of more enjoyable instances in the future for folks who check out your website.
