Little Hauls & My Blue Obsession

Hello ladies and gents, but mostly ladies! Today's post is a few polishes I've bought recently, but mostly I'm showing you for the stories behind them.

First up, I got these lovelies from the Walgreens 99 cent Wet n Wild sale. Hannah Pinktana, Buffy the Violet Slayer, and Teal of Fortune (I love these names). No fun story behind these. :(

Next up is a fun  is a fairly random bag of polishes that I got with Emily from Embellished Nails. We actually live really close and it was so nice to meet her in person and find someone equally interested in nail polish as me! We found these bags of 10 polishes for $3.99 at Christmas Tree Shops (not sure if these are a Northeast phenomenon or if you guys know what those are?) Emily jokingly mentioned that her mom pointed them out before and that they were mostly old polishes, but we went to look anyway... and then we sat down on the floor, opened the packages (whoops), and picked out the best ones from each. We laughed like idiots and joked about getting caught, and it was a lot of fun.

What we ended up finding was:

Cutex Cherub Red, Wet n Wild Super Silver (which is an awesome topcoat which makes an effect similar to the glitter in No More Waity Katie) x 2, Passionate Purple x 4 (one for Emily), Black Ice, unsure of the name on the red, and Sweet Georgia Brown (?) Aqua Crush.

Here's Passionate Purple up close, I think this one is one of my favorites!

Then Emily and I got polishes from our local beauty supply we both frequent and joked about how they probably saw us together and thought, "Finally, those two addicts know each other!" haha! I got OPI's Swimsuit... Nailed It! from the Miss Universe collection and Pink Shatter.

Now, the next three polishes have a funny story too. When I first got into nail polish, I didn't like blue. I thought it looked funny (Emily actually told me she initially felt that way too!) or slutty or something. I loved glitter, but thought it would make me look 12, so I avoided it. As you can see from the next three polishes I bought, I've definitely outgrown these preconceived notions LOL (Either that or I'm a 12 year old slut with some funny looking nails, who knows!)

This is Milani Blue Flash, Revlon Mint Fizz, and Swimsuit... Nailed It!

What do you think?
