Sunday Funday Haul!

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you've all been having a great weekend.  After Friday I haven't done anything, but at least it was great! lol  I don't really have much to talk about.  I've just been relaxing.  Between the road trip that went horribly wrong Wednesday and the water park, it was a long week.  Plus, I'm a little bummed out.  A friend and I were supposed to be going to Mexico for our birthdays, but where we were going has had a burst of anti-American violence recently so we've cancelled the trip.  Hopefully we can go to Europe instead, but we don't have any make-up plans yet.  We'll see!   

My haul this week was pretty big!  I bought a ton of polishes, got a package from China Glaze, a contest prize, a Born Pretty order, some Amazon polishes and a polish that I had bought a long time ago and finally found!  Lots of stuff, so probably going to be a no-buy next week, but we all know how well those go! 

First up is the contest prize I won about three weeks ago from Anne at Witoxicity.  She held a Catrice giveaway, and I was super excited to win!  These are my first Catrice polishes and so far I LOVE them! Anne is really sweet and has an amazing blog so go check it out! 

Catrice
In The Bronx
Iron Mermaiden
Dirty Berry
Forget-Me-Not

Just seeing these in the bottle and in swatches I am in love.  I'm waiting for some sun though because I want to try Dirty Berry first.  I've been dying to try it!  My only complaint is that they come in slightly smaller bottles.  It makes me almost feel like I waste when I use smaller bottles.  Other than that, I'm so happy with them! Thanks, Anne! :)

China Glaze
Cracked Concrete
X
Sea Spray
(these were sent for review)
I was sent these by China Glaze to review.  I would have just been happy to be added to their press list so I'm really excited about these.  So far, they have been a great company to work with.  Very courteous and they answer very quickly.  I was glad they sent X.  I have been wanting this for awhile.  So sexy.

OPI
Come To Poppy
I Lily Love You
It's My Year
I will be reviewing these SOON.  I've already been playing with them and they are total love.  I won't say much because you'll be seeing them soon enough :)

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
All Tracy Reese collection (I believe)
Coral Fever
Barracuda
First Kiss
These are polishes from the Tracy Reese collection that I've been wanting since they came out!  I finally picked them up.  I went to Target.  I couldn't stand it anymore.  I NEEDED Barracuda.  To my surprise, I got there and they were on clearance!  Two dollars off.  I saved enough to by a whole nother polish!  I love when that happens :)  I have Barracuda on right now.  I'm so happy with it!

Sally Hansen Instra-Dri
Peachy Breeze
Raspberry Race
As you can see, these were on clearance as well.  The whole spring collection was so Jade Jump and Fuchsia Power were also on sale, but I have those already.  The only ones that were missing were the yellow and Blue Me Away.

Miscellaneous
Sinful Colors Hottie
Orly Fresh
Essie Your Hut or Mine
Hottie is the old polish.  I bought it over a month ago and I've been looking for it ever since.  I finally found it in my mom's car... It had thickened to almost dry.  I've had to put a TON of thinner in it!  Proof that heat really does destroy polish. Bummer.  
I've been searching high and low for the Essie Resort collection, but I haven't found it in my area so I finally ordered Your Hut or Mine.  I've already worn it and it is everything I hoped! Love it! 
I broke down and bought Orly Fresh.  It's just so bright!  Ugh.  I now have three of the four from the Happy Go Lucky collection.  I would have the purple too if it wasn't sold out every time I went to Sally's!

Born Pretty Store
dotting tools
I ordered these a week ago.  Yes, a WEEK!  It took eight days to ship to me, plus the one day of processing my order.  I was SHOCKED!  I'm not sure why, but international shipping has been amazing for me lately.  It only took about 8 days for Anne's package to get to me from the Netherlands as well.  Very pleasantly surprised, but not changing my expectations any.

Wrigley Jaymes
Finally, making his blogging debut, Wrigley!  I was trying not to put him on my blog much.  As much as I love my baby, I could see me getting a little crazy with the pet posts.  BUT I thought it was too cute the way he was sleeping curled up next to the polishes.  He's like his momma!  LOL


He was so excited about having his picture taken.  Can you tell?  He hates pictures.  He's like a little person.  So self conscious.  You can tell how hard of a week it's been.  He's slept all day too! 

Well, there is another week of buying and obliterating my bank account.  Hope you enjoyed it!  Have a great week! Thanks for looking everyone!
