Stuff I've Gotten Lately, Part One:

More stuff I've gotten lately.  Part of the never-ending haul that my life has become  :p

Pretty things...  I'm weak, what can I say?

Alright, it begins...

I got this stuff from TD:

Color Clubs in Wild And Willing, With Abandon, Love 'Em, Leave 'Em, and Wild At Heart.  WAH I got in a swap, but I wanted to include it here with its family.  These are the ones from the Wild At Heart collection that I was interested in - I passed on the two frosty jewel-tone shades. 

Misas in Confection Section, Ghetto Fabulous, Let's Go Green, A Sunny Smile Makes Me Go Wild, and Bikini With A Martini.  BWAM is a tad more fuchsia than red.  I have some more Misas coming in a swap, too - when they get here I'll photograph them all together  :)

Orly Sweet collection in Lollipop, Cotton Candy, Lemonade, Snowcone and Pixi Stix.  I have Gumdop coming in a swap as well :)  Only Pixi Stix came with its little lipgloss, even though they all should have since I ordered them seperately, but I'm guessing supply is running low since these have been out a while now.  Anyway, I don't care - I love the Pixi Stix one, and the only other one I would have worn is obviously Cotton Candy.  Which would have looked gross on me anyway.  I don't wear much lip stuff, including gloss, cuz I have giant lips and I think 99% of it looks worse on me than none at all.  It's sad.  Ahem.  Anyway, these are really pretty.  I haven't gotten around to wearing any yet, but my Orly lemming has quieted down for awhile - I've gone from owning four to around thirty!

A couple OPIs

OPI Merryberry Mauve and Maliblue.  Two dc'ed, kind of htf OPIs.  I didn't know TD had these - why are people charging $20 for Merryberry Mauve on ebay?  Huh.  Anyway, I now own the polish and the glitter topcoat! :)  I should try them together.

Amour Rain Glitter.  This was recommended to me on the NB and it's very rainbow-y and sparkly.  I need to try it.  Man, I have so many I need to try!  I wonder what colour I should use as the base...?

Then, I got a whole mess of China Glaze! <3

China Glaze Poolside!  L-R: Flip Flop Fantasty, Sun Worshiper, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Towel Boy Toy and Pool Party.  No Kiwi-Cool-Ada, since stupid TD was sold out of it at the time of my order (of course, they got it in the next day and have had it since).  I don't really mind, since it looks like a dupe for CC Limelight.  As a matter of fact, a lot of these seem dupey; if you ask me, SW = CC Explosive/Psychedelic Scene, YPDB = ChG Celtic Sun, Misa A Sunny Smile Makes Me Go Wild, TBT = CC Pure Energy, ChG Sky-High Top, and PP = one of the various CC pink neons.  I fully intend to do a comp post.

The only one of these I've worn - and absolutely LOVE - is Flip Flop Fantasy.  This is a gorgeous bright neon coral orangey pink.  It's screaming to be on my toes.  I will post pics!

China Glaze Bahama Blues collection.  L-R: Bahamian Escape, Carribean Blue, Blue Island Iced Tea, Bermuda Breakaway, Calypso Blue.  I love blue - it is by far my favorite polish colour, and this collection is all ranges of it.  Once again, there was a frosted shade that I passed on.  A lot of frosts just look dated to me lately.  Anyway, I owned a polish identical to Bahamian Escape when I was about twelve... I wish I could remember the brand.... it wasn't a well-known one.  Because of this, BE has been a long-time lemming of mine - I've wanted it ever since I first started looking at swatches of ChG back in December, when I didn't own any, and probably only owned about thirty nps in total.  Wow, I've come a long way.

Oh, and last, but not least - the free stuffed puppy that came with my TD order:
Cute?  I think I got one of the last ones - it's not on the page anymore.  I'm gonna end up owning ten thousand pairs of those Holiday Puppy Slippers, though  :p

Now, other stuff.  These are the long-awaited Reveries from

L-R: Adina, Lana, Happi, Reece, Laney, Gwin.  I'm obviously very late to the party on these, and everyone else and their monkey has reviewed them already.  So I'll spare you.

Some swap haul:

Orly Rage and Luxe.  Shiny things!  More pedi potential!

And some Zoyas: Casey, Emme and Astra.  I have Astra on my toes right now, and it's such super-sparkly goodness! 

I'll be back with part two tomorrow, most likely....  how's your weekend going? 


  1. nice polish color !!
    i have a giveaway on my blog come on see if you want !!

  2. Wow, all that from TD? If you don't mind me asking, what was the shipping cost that they charge?

  3. Geee that's only part one? LOL! Awesome haul, can't wait to see part two!

  4. Halifax - They charged me just under $26 for all this! Unfortunately, I've heard TD is increasing their shipping charges for international orders, so I don't know if I'll be able to do this again... :(
