I'm back! With a haul...

US haul post  

Apologies readers, I didn't mean to let a month go by but I was on holibobs in Florida for 2 weeks and then straight back into a full-on work project.

So I'm kicking off with my not very big haul from Florida.  I was on holiday with my family (husband and 3 teenage step-kids) so there wasn't much time for shopping, it was mostly theme parks, segways, Kennedy Space Center, airboat rides and gun ranges...

I did manage to get to Sallys, Ulta, CVS, TJ Maxx and Walgreens but actually didn't buy too much nail polish....

First up the bases & tops...

Read good things about this 'daylight' cured top coat.

Bonder is a repeat buy basic for me but I've never tried Gelous or Poshe before -they seem harder to find in the UK

These mini Seche Vite's were only $1.25 in Sally so I bought 8!  They're handy for travel and don't have time to go gloopy!

And some colour polishes...

Nite Owl - I love my taupes and this one has an interesting silver shimmer running through it.

Bargain Sally Hansens from Target IIRC

Star Glitter topper and a leaky Finger Paints (my first)

Sally Hansen - I really like the 'sugar' textured finish and these blues called to me

Another first - SpaRitual - never seen these IRL in the UK.  And a Zoya glitter.  And somewhere there's another SpaRitual and Zoya, but they'd gone walkabout when I took the pics.

I know these are in Boots in the UK but they're cheaper in the US

And a freebie Revlon - I found this under the drawer unit in the villa we rented...!

So not a massive haul.  Maybe because I know how much unswatched I have at a home I managed to restrain myself....  Now I just need some spare time and reasonable length nails to get on with some swatching...!


  1. You got some interesting goodies _ I look forward to "meeting" them on you blog!
    And welcome back!

  2. Oh wow some lovely ones there! You did well. Hehe how lucky were you with a freebie ;-)

    Hope you had a great a time :-)

  3. Holy-moly that's some awesome polishes - love a holiday (or should I say 'vacay'?) haul :) Can't wait to see those sugar shimmers swatched...


Thanks for your comment - I appreciate all of them!
