January Haul

This is a little belated, but I decided to start doing monthly haul videos, so here is my video for January!  I’m still learning how to do videos, so it’s not the greatest, but I’m working on it.  I thought it would be a good way to show you what I buy each month, since they don’t all make it on the blog.

Let me know if you liked this video, and if you would like to see haul videos at the end of every month.  I’m hoping it works out and I can start doing videos regularly because there have been quite a few requested tutorials.  Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions for future videos! This is not something that comes naturally to me, so I would love to hear your tips and tricks!

And because I know some of you are probably going to ask… I’m wearing OPI’s Don’t Mess with OPI on my nails in the video.

Graduation/Birthday Haul

Last month, I graduated from college and turned 23.  I had a little extra cash from gifts, and I pretty much spent it all on nail polish, so I thought I’d share what I got.  This is my first haul post, so please let me know what you like or don’t like (and if I should do this again).

I’ve already shown you some of these, but I was waiting for the last ones to arrive before posting.  You can click on the picture to see them bigger.

Top Row (L to R): Windestine Pansies, Jeweled Sand (mini), Hydrangeas (mini), Star Bright (mini), Jeweled Sand, Nails Inc. Tate, Westminister, Hampstead Gardens, Fashion’s Night Out.

Middle Row: Dandy Nails Colorblind², Colorblind, Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum, It’s A Me Mario, Sally Hansen Salon Effects Love Letter, Sephora by OPI Slushied.

Bottom Row: Sinful Colors Opal Glitter, Pearl Harbor, Go Go Girl, Spoiled Paying with Platinum, Visually Slimming, Correction Tape, Jewelry Heist, Essie Mojito Madness, Bikini So Teeny, Off the Shoulder, Fear or Desire.

My favorites are definitely the indies (I may or may not have ordered three more in the past two days), but I really like the others I picked up, too.  The Spoiled ones I got only for nail art because they were $1 each – I like them, but the brush sucks.  I couldn’t pass up the SOPI (which I’ve wanted for forever) and the Nails Inc. on sale for $5 at Sephora.  I was surprisingly impressed by the Sinful Colors polishes – definitely getting more of those soon.  I have no idea when I’ll use  Sally Hansen Salon Effects, but I had CVS Extrabucks and couldn’t resist the pattern of this one.  I’ve already swatched most of the Essies, but when I saw it in person, I decided to add Off the Shoulder to my collection, so you’ll see that one soon.

Which one of these pretties do you want to see first?
