Weekend Haul- Pic heavy!

Sorry for my lack of updating, guys. I've been busy with school and exams :[

But anyway, I went home this weekend and fell victim to Ulta, which I don't have where I go to school. Yet.

First up is Studio M's Covered in Diamonds.
I realized that, while I have a gazillion and a half glitters, I don't have anything that resembles flakes.

Second is Borghese's Stellar Notte. Meijer had these 50% off, so I knew I had to pick the one up that I've been eyeing. That being said, this is my first Borghese.

Third is Essie's Aruba Blue.
Of course, I have a dupe of this, but I was also lacking at least 1 Essie in my collection (aside from their Matte-About-You)

Next is my first Ulta polish, For Bitten. I tried this on my finger and I really wish it was more duochrome than it is. But anyway, I do need a red...

Next is LA Splash's Aqua Fusion. I really needed a sky blue and I haven't tried LA Splash, so I thought this would be a good choice.

This is OPI's Austin-tatious Turquoise, and is also my first OPI polish (lots of firsts in this post!). It's incredibly sheer and needs several layers without a basecoat.

This is Ocean Breeze from Revlon. It's one of their newer scented polishes, and I personally think it smells like soap. It's a pretty color, though!

This one here is Sugar Plum by Revlon, and it's a gorgeous plum color.
On that note, I will have swatches from my nail wheel of these up soon!

These little bullets are powder eyeshadow from NYX. I felt like being creative and making my own nail polish. I see all of these gorgeous frakens over Blogger and I figured I'd give it a go.

This was my creation, using NYC's clear polish. The pigment and the glitter eventually settle, so it needs a good amount of shaking around to get everything even again. I tried it out, and it looks really neat!
I ended up ordering some mica pigments and supplies from TKB Trading. I'll definitely upload some photos of my future frankens!

That's all for now!

Bijou crystals

I've been so busy, I haven't been able to update my blog whatsoever.
I got a package of nail wheels that I'll post relatively soon. I'm going to try to get more organized and put everything into Excel and see what magic that brings me.
I have a wellness card with Rite Aid now, so we'll see what trouble that brings me in the near future.
But anywayyyy, here's a mani I did yesterday.

I have no idea where I picked this polish up several years ago, but pre-nail polish hoarder me made a good decision! This is a black glitter, which I layered over LA colors metal gray color.

Bizarre brands

So, I want to try some really out there brand. Not like, the kind I can go to Sally's or Ulta and pick up.
I'll come across some blogs where they name bizarre companies that I've never heard of before, like Catherine Arley and Nubar. Mind you, I have heard of those.
So, my fellow polish addicts, I'm looking for a list of some of your favorite brands. Anything. Even stuff that I'd have to order online and wait 2 weeks to ever see. It'd be awesome for everyone, in the end. You learn something new everyday, right?
Aaaaaand, go!
