More polishes!

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I was in Shoppers on Thursday, looking for the air cast for my ankle (expensive stuff, I was surprised). Passing through cosmetics, I saw the little bucket again. Remember my little polish haul for CAD3.99 a bottle? It's the same bucket, and this time it's even fuller. Omg!

Turns out the cosmetics manager was doing some "cleaning" and more polishes ended up in the bucket. The staff even brought out another plastic bag for me to pick from as she knew I was saw most of them last time already, lol. Unfortunately, there were a lot of repeats/ multiples.

Want to see what I found this time?

Nicole by OPI, the dark side, lol. I don't know what it is about these bottles, but I couldn't stop myself from getting them all. I found some before at Winners, CAD9.99 a pair but not to this extent.

From L-R:
- Blues in the Night (black with micro teal glitters)
- Black to the Future (black with purple glitters)
- Shimmy Shimmer (dark purple)
- Turn out the Lights (black with green glitters)
- Party at 3am (black with purple/blue glitters).

I don't know whether the glitters would show up on the nails as beautifully as in the bottles, I guess we'll have to see swatches later :-)

Also found something I haven't seen much around here: L'Oreal Resist & Shine Tatanium - the Black Gloss collection. I only found them on L'Oreal UK website, guess North America wasn't supposed to have them.

I chose 2 shades: 734 Black Red and 735 Black Gold. The colours are gorgeous but the cap is funny (I'll do a close up shot with a NOTD later), and the bottle is small (9ml).

Also found a Borghese colour I didn't see last time: Ectasi Indigo (same holiday collection as my previous 2 bottles).

I went a little crazy with the nail polishes lately, I admit, but the idea of owning these hard-to-find colours excited me so much. Hope you don't mind haul posts, as you know it's not meant to be bragging or anything, right? If any of you have been looking for these, I could get you some too, while they are still on sale.

On the way out, I saw the sign the store put up a little early - $10 gift card with $50 purchase starting Saturday. Well, I could have waited to buy these for that gift card, but the colours might also be gone by then. Who knows! Decision, decision :-)


  1. black to the future looks GORGEOUS in the bottle, cause the glitters are rainbow like~!
    pure awesomeness XD
    haha, awesome finds, I'm loving these posts, so keep them coming.
    of course lusting after colours doesn't help, but I do have a lot of dark colours already~
    Hope the ankle is better than before, and the brace is helping :)

  2. Nice haul! I used to have Blues in the Night. It's gorgeous.

  3. I love the way those polishes look in the bottles. Let's cross our fingers and hope the shimmer/glitter shows up. =)

  4. Biba, thanks hun :-)

    rasilla, all the black actually look cool in the bottles, which made it hard to choose. The brace does help, but it's plastic, unbreathable on the skin which is a little uncomfortable :-)

    Natalie, great to know you like yours, as I have no idea how these colours would show up on the nails :-)

    PerryPie, I do too hun :-)
