My Recent Hauls Part I

Even though I wasn't blogging during the last few months, I certainly didn't stop buying nail polishes. Here are some of the recent additions to my collection!

Photobucket
My new Essies (from left to right): Sew Psyched, Smokin' Hot, Chinchilly, Mink Muffs, Demure Vixen

Photobucket
These are all two coaters with the exception of Demure Vixen which required three coats to be opaque. I was obviously craving smokey, greyed out shades when I got these.

Dolly Wink nail polishes: #09 (mint green), #14 (pink holo glitter), #10 (yellow), #07 (lilac), #08 (sky blue)
I remember seeing English names for these cuties but I wasn't able to find them anywhere so I'll update when I do. ^-^

Even though I adoreee the Dolly Wink line, I can't bring myself to purchase the entire collection cuz I have very similar colours already. Then again, I might end up getting the rest of them too just to collect 'em all! >__< Sigh, I think I'll have to go on a no buy soon! Anyway, I was quite impressed with the formula and application of these especially the yellow one since it didn't display any signs of the yellow nail polish syndrome and applied ever so wonderfully. =]

Sweets Sweets: NL 7(yellow), NL9 (light green), NL13 (purple)

Sweets Sweets is a Japanese drugstore brand. I was very excited to try these because I have some of their glitter polishes and loveee them. These three did not disappoint because not only were they very affordable, they also applied like buttterrrr! : )

Photobucket
Canmake Crack Lac Nail CL02 & Colorful Nails 02- these two are meant to be used together, gotta say they make a pretty interesting combo! =D

The left is just the mint green polish on its own and the right is with the yellow crackle polish added on top!

P.S. I took these pictures in my brand new light box that I built over the weekend. However, I've been quite upset cuz I couldn't get the lighting to work properly. Any tips on what lights to use and how to position them ladies? =)

  5. Nice haul!! The Canmake crack lac nail is so cool, reminds me of the OPI nail polish in the katy perry collection, forgot what it's called.. but I find that one a bit hard to wear on a daily basis since it's black. Just wondering how many layers did you apply your Canmake blueish polish? I own a purple Canmake one and I found it pretty sheer :(
