If you follow my Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter, you get to see all my hauls and purchases. It's really easy to upload to those platforms on the go whereas the Blogger app diminishes the photo quality a lot :( I've decided to compile all my hauls posts for you at the end of each month :)
I started off December by shopping at the CVS Clearance sale. I got the Milanis for 75% off and NOPI Khloe Had a Lam Lam and Sally Hansen The Real Teal for 50% off! Then I picked up Orly Miss Conduct, Angel Eyes and Devil May Care for B2G1 free at Sally's!
Then I got my Lac Attack's Magical Musings collection picks! I got Beauxbatons Academy, Holidays in Hogsmeade, Hogwarts, Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes, Dementor's Kiss and The Horcrux of It... I'm such a big Harry Potter fan that I want to complete my collection ASAP! I need to post my Hogwarts mani because it was seriously awesome!
I got my December Nail Art Society box. It came with Cherimoya Mystery and Blockbuster matte metallic polishes, rhinestones, nail glue and nail polish remover pads. I haven't tried it out yet but the polishes look gorgeous!
Then I went on an indie binge on pay day. I got Lush Lacquer Peppermint Kisses and Sugar Daddy, Lacquerhead Polish Rainbow Farts and Just Be Claus, and Pahlish A Partridge in a Pear Tree, Eight Maids a Milking and Twelve Drummers Drumming. I showed you Partridge before. I highly recommend it. It is one of the prettiest and unique indies I've tried.
My Christmas Eve Nail Mail! I got Makeup Your Face Snow Angel and Rockin' Round. This polish is so cool! It has round glitter! I put it over China Glaze Running in Circles and it looked just like a Christmas tree :) It also comes with snowflake glitter in a baggy so you don't have to fish it out of the bottle. I also got Zoya Veruschka from a girl in a facebook girl that was de-stashing. I've been lemming this for so long! It's the last Zoya suede I wanted :D
My dad got these for my stocking. Pop Culture Polish Snow Angel and Amy's Nail Boutique Alyssa. Snow Angel also comes with snowflake glitter outside of the bottle to make life easier. I'm not a super huge fan of Alyssa, but Zoya and Julep refuse to make one haha. It's cute but I wish it were a full-coverage polish and not a top coat.
My mom's stocking gifts! I got Zoya Logan and Storm, China Glaze Fairy Dust and two Fergie polishes I can't remember the names of. I was kinda sad I got Storm instead of Blaze, but it really blew me away once it was on the nail!
Ashley from One Nail to Another was my Secret Santa in our birthday group! She got me the two snowmen, two frankens she made and China Glaze Winter Holly and Glitter All the Way. And how cute is that ornament?!?!
My aunt got me a gift card to Ulta for Christmas. I was hoping to get Zoya Blaze but my Ulta hasn't restocked it in weeks. Zoya is usually the only polish I buy there (unless I find something on clearance) because I can find most other brands cheaper elsewhere. I got OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls which several bloggers have sung the praises of and it was on clearance! I also got China Glaze Cirque du Soleil because the first Sally's I went to didn't have it.
My Sally's haul (minus Running in Circles)! CG Igniting Love, Def Defying, Hanging in the Balace, Get Carried Away, It's a Trapeze, Glistening Snow, Con-Fused?, Champagne Bubbles and Naked. All the Cirque and Holiday polishes were half off at one of the Sally's I went to! Naked was in a pack with Seche Vite for $5 and I needed more topcoat. The Magnetix was $.99! I love Sally's!
I was tipped off that Color Club Halo Hues were on Crowd Cut for $5 each + shipping! I got Halo-Graphic, Blue Heaven, and Cherubic. These are gorgeous! If you're still looking for them, this is the best price I've found online. I ordered the other three from here :)
And then my last polish purchases of the year. Revlon Girly and Heavenly and Sally Hansen Lava. I paid $8.49 for Lava, which was a lot more than I would have preferred but every display I found when they were came out was already sold out of it, so I jumped when I got the chance. Girly is similar to one of the Nails Inc Sprinkles I wanted and much more affordable. Heavenly is supposed to be a Deborah Lippmann dupe or Stairway to Heaven. I have no idea how close it is, but it is an amazingly gorgeous polish. I highly recommend it!
I also bought Orly Halo for 50% off at Sally's, Orly R.I.P. for $.99 at Sally's and China Glaze Whirled Away. That makes 60 polishes purchased/received in December. That's all I have to say about that.
