Glitter Waterfall & More

Ah yes, another mani and another haul! I picked up a few more of the Sinful Colors fall collection and a few Pure Ice's from their Glitz collection AND some China Glaze annnnnnd.......my first OPI! Yes, thanks to Sally's Beauty Supply for adding OPI to their stores. They are a bit pricey, but this is mainly the only one I wanted. If they stock the other NYC ballet collection, I'd get those too, but for now it just looks like they sell their standard permanent collection.

First up, the mani!

I tried the reverse glitter gradient, or glitter waterfall as I called it, and it's...not my best work. It was my first attempt and I just didn't like it. Maybe it's the color combo, or maybe it just looks to messy to me, but it was a lot of work. Will be trying it again though. Colors are Tongue in Chic by China Glaze and the glitter is Kissed at Midnight by Nicole by OPI (Selena Gomez collection).


And now the haul:

3 Sinful colors, 5 Pure Ice's, 3 China Glaze's, and a pack of Burt's Bees cuticle cream.

Left to right: Coffee, Sage Rose, and Green Ocean. Burt's Bees Lemon Butter cuticle cream is soooo good. Keeps cuticles moisturized and leaves them with a lemony scent while making them easy to remove or shape. Also a fantastic (and cheaper) alternative to Lush's Lemony Flutter cuticle butter. For the holidays, I also spotted a small gift set that contains this cuticle cream, a hand cream, a lotion, and salve for around $12 at Wal-Mart. The cream by itself is $6.00.

FINALLY found All Night Long (been looking for it), Glass of Bordeaux, Royal Flush, Dazzle Me, and Monte Carlo. All are from the Glitz collection except All Night Long, which is from their fall collection. Dazzle Me is also a dupe for Hard Candy's Celebrate Sequins.

The only two I actually like from the HoliGlaze collection - All Wrapped Up and Put a Bow on It, and OPI's Pirouette My Whistle. I may get This is Tree-Mendous, but I'm not sure yet. I know I've been getting a lot of these high end brands lately, but I still love and collect my drug store brands :). They're what I started with anyway and their collections (Sally Hansen, Pure Ice, Revlon, etc) are still growing as well.

What polishes are on your wish list? Happy Haul-idays!
