A day filled with hauls!

I went out shopping without the intention of buying any polishes, but as always I ended up with a few bottles back home :P.

First off, I discovered Sinful Color polishes in The Reject Shop for only 50 cents a bottle!! Of course I had to buy some, even though the colour range was pretty small. It's my first time spotting Sinful Color polishes here in Australia and so I just had to purchase some despite the fact that they were all reds and pinks (and quite a few sheers too).

And then too my delight, I also stumbled upon some L.A. Colors polish in a dollar shop! Again, it's my first time seeing these polishes in Australia, so I pretty excited. It was definitely my lucky day today :D.

Since I was in full polish buying mode by then, I swung by another dollar shop and bought some rhinestones for future nail art designs :).

Definitely can't wait to try these out!

To my surprise, I received a note in the mail when I arrived home telling me to go down to the post office to collect a package. Since I've only ordered one thing recently, I already had a hunch of what was awaiting me at the post office...and I was right! My free blogger package from Viva la Nails had arrived! Can I just say that I'm totally over the moon at the quick shipping?! The package was shipped exactly a week ago, so this only took five business days to arrive!

I do have a tiny complaint with the packaging though - it appeared that one of the blue glitter packets had not been closed properly and as a result there was glitter spilling everywhere, even out of the sealed packaging. I tried to save what I could and tipped it all into the orange glitter pack. It was quite disappointing and more than a little frustrating to clean all the glitter away - there's still quite a bit in my handbag where I had temporarily stored the package, not to mention my table where I had opened it.

The top row shows the nail stickers and the bottom the water decals. I can't wait to try out the decals, they look so pretty! A review of the products will be coming along in the near future.

Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Awesome haul. I've never heard of a REJECT STORE before.
    I get my LA Colors "Color Craze" at Dollar Tree. Is that where you go yours?
    You got some pretties,

  3. Susie: The Reject Shop is kind of like a dollar shop I guess. It has all sorts of things available to be sold, and while they're cheap, they may not be as cheap as finds in a dollar store :).

    Chris: It was indeed! I really envy you US gals who can pick up polishes at such cheap prices.
