OPI Glow Out For Halloween Kit

Posted by manicuremania on October 18, 2009

hall kit

This is my prize from Sasse’s contest. I think that OPI has a nice bottle shape to begin with, and when you make them miniature…they are adorable! I just can’t get over how cute they are – basically if you miniaturize something I’m all over it. Now, the polishes. It’s a tiny bit irritating that I can’t tell which polish is which – I mean I could make educated guesses but that’s just not how I roll so I had to look it up! Anyway:

  • Cool Ghoul – white
  • Boo-Berry – glow-in-the-dark blue
  • Jack’s Back – orange
  • Witch Way?  – black

And the cute stickers:

And, I hope to make something awesome with this kit very soon! Thanks, Sasse!

Small Haul

Posted by manicuremania on October 18, 2009

I picked up some polishes this weekend!

From Sally’s:

  • sallysChina Glaze Flying Dragon
  • China Glaze Strawberry Fields
  • Orly Blue Suede
  • Nina Ultra Pro Leaf Me Alone
  • Nina Ultra Pro In A Tiff

Still didn’t manage to hit the $25 mark for the 15% off coupon next month, but I’m kinda OK with that because I think that except for basics like files and Orly basecoat, I’m kinda done with Sally’s. I mean, the selection of polishes is so very limited, and I’ve pretty much gotten the ones I really want…I think I’ll have to get the rest of the China Glazes that I’ve been wanting online. Plus, my Sally’s never seems to have the new collections that I keep hearing about other people getting in there. Like, I STILL haven’t seen Orly Pixie Dust. Also, WTF is up with the China Glaze Matte Magic? I went in there prepared to buy it but…it’s $6 for a MINI?????????? I can stick with Matte About You, thank you!

From Walmart:

  • walmartPure Ice Kiss Me Here (I adore gray polishes)
  • Pure Ice Cheatin (damn damn damn, this is a dupe)
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear In The Navy
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Deep Purple

From the Halloween Store:

  • halloweenFantasy Makers Black Magic (had planned to pass on this one, but I weakened)

I also got something else fabulous in the Halloween store, plus I recieved my awesome package from Sasse, coming in future posts!

I’ve got lots of plans for posts coming up, I just hope to be able to find the time to actually do them soon! My nails have been neglected lately. I’m also totally behind on organizing, I’ve got polishes everywhere, tried polishes mixed up with new ones, and none of the new ones have been catalogued. 😦

I entered Sasse’s ‘nad Stamping Stampede’s Halloween Konad Kontest, and I was one of the second place winners! Awesome!!

Go look at the other winners – most of them are way better than mine! I especially like the one at the bottom with the trees  – it’s totally Halloween-y without being predictable.

I LOVE that Sasse’s giveaway was a contest – that makes it so much fun! It’s got me thinking of doing a contest of my own someday, too!
