This year I've really been holding off buying polish. I did A LOT of hauls last year and wanted to enjoy those colors. I have been buying a polish now and then but April is my first haul of the year. Through the course of a month, I acquired 13 bottles. It wasn't intentional. I went to watch The Hunger Games and since I was at the mall, went in to Trade Secrets (my favorite mall shop). They have some OPI colors that are being discontinued. I also had to get 4 of the NYC Ballet shades. I made a total of 3 visits in the week. Walgreens had the Wet N Wild Flora and Fauna sets. I got both since wet n wild are my favorite eyeshadows. ( I have almost every palatte). The polishes I could have done without. When I went to Target, I saw A Million Sparkles by Nicole. It was the first time I noticed that color. Beautiful. A few days ago I was killing time in Walgreens and they finally had Cinderella by Sinful Colors. They were out a while, so this time I bought it. So that basically sums up my haul. I don't intend to do another haul for a while.
|The Ballet shades are so pretty, they needed their own picture. L-R: My Pointe Exactly, Care to Danse?, You Callin Me a Lyre?, Pirouette My Whistle. I made good use of them last month. Softshades are usually not my thing, but I really, really like these. The formula is smooth and not streaky. You Callin Me A Lyre? is my favorite. It is a true ballet pink. Scrangie did a beautiful review on them. Thanks to her I didn't pass up these jellies. http://www.scrangie.com/search?q=nyc+ballet. Ommorphia Beauty Bar also did a spectacular review on the collection. She included pictures of the New York City Ballet and the result is stunning. http://ommorphiabeautybar.com/2012/03/03/opi-new-york-city-ballet-softshades-collection-swatches-review/|
I will do full manis from my haul, including the softshades again. I might need a backup bottle of Lyre
