Nail polish hauls

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I was going through my NOTD pics to prepare a new post and realized I haven't even told you about the hauls that they are part of, lol. I know I keep getting more nail polish, but I found good deals and it was just so easy to cave.

Anyway, here are some nail colours I got from my Avon lady. Avon nail polish normally runs around CAD5.99 or so a piece but I grabbed them when they were on sale for half off.

First row, from L-R: Avon Matte Red Velvet and Violetta, Avon Speed Dry Mink
Second row: Avon Nailwear Pro Rave, Deluxe Chocolate and Jade.

The matte shades are the latest release while Jade came out a few months back. The rest are all dark colours which I thought are appropriate for the season.

Now we're getting to the exciting part. My blog sale haul. I love blog sales, as I can get my hands on hard-to-find brands or find colours that have been long gone in the market, with awesome prices.

Check out what I found:
First row, from L-R: NYX Asphalt, Essence Pool Party, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Rockstar Pink and China Glaze Harmony.

Second row: Orly Pixie Dust, LA Girl Rock Star Addict, Avon Nailwear Pro Blue Flare and Golden Twilight.

Well the first 3 I can buy around here but for a lot more than what I paid. The 2 Avon shades, I don't recall seeing them being released in Canada (or they were released before my interest in nail polish started). The other 3 are ones I have been wanting for a while.

And that's not all. Do you see what I see in this pic?

- Isadora Graffiti Spraycan Blue and Subway Green (yes, the coveted crackling polishes)
- Milani Teddy-Bare and Fairy Tale (which are from the Bare It All and the Halloween 2009 collections, not available in Canada)
- Gosh Rainbow (O.M.G., Canada never has it, ever), and
- NYC Love Letters (one of the most raved about chameleon top coats).

I was extremely happy with this bunch and, like I said at the beginning, I already started putting some of the shades in use. The NOTDs will be up soon, but if there's anything you want to see first, let me know and I'll get to it.


  1. Wow, you found the GOSH rainbow! Lucky lady. I had to settle for Nubar 2010 (which is actually rather nice, lol)

  2. Can't wait to see the Avons, I do not have any from this brand :)

  3. Omg, you got got golden Twilight. Want that so bad.

  4. The NYX Asphalt colour is pretty :)

  5. Wow very very jealous!! I would love to see one of the crackle polishes :)

  6. Wow, great haul! Avon Nailwear Pro in Jade looks great (I'm in love with revlon Minted), and I hope you will like Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Rockstar Pink as much as I do! I layer it with every nail polish LOL.

  7. Gosh Rainbow... How I crave for it!

  8. Ash-Lilly, oh Nubar is just fine but I just love to collect them all lol

    Jackie, I'll make sure to get some Avon swatches up for ya

    Perry, we didn't get this shade in Canada, did we?

    Tammy, oh yeah it is. I don't have any NYX polish before this

    Bcteagirl, you will see it soon enough :)

    Gaby, yes Jade is Avon's way to join the mint trend. Rockstar Pink is a repurchase, cause my mom took mine, lol

    Ashley, I'm still hoping to find Gosh holo, lol. The search never ends

  9. OMG now that's some hauling!!
    I googled NYC Love Letters because I had never heard about it and your comment about how it's raved about made me curious...I just bought it off the Bay of Evil too, I blame you for this impule purchase now ;p
