HAPPY MID-WEEK YOU GUYS! We're already halfway through the work week so here's a little something fun!
I've been so busy trying to churn out swatches of all my recent holo and indie buys that I haven't been diligently doing up my monthly haul posts so I shall present you with my EPIC Haul of Shame - all my polish purchases from the past many many months. Please don't judge me. :D
I've also swatched a couple of these new babies and I've linked their names to their respective swatches so click away to see some swatches!
Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker, Party on my Yacht, Hearts & Daggers, Dream Queen, Tart and Pool Party
Same order as above but I just wanted to show you how the polishes look like. I couldn't resist doing some close up shots. These were some of the first indies I purchase so I feel much more attached to them and thus I want to show them off just a little more! ;)
Jawbreaker and Party on my Yacht
HEarts & Daggers and Pool Party
Dream Queen and Tart
Hard Candy Beetle (Orly Space Cadet dupe) and Sky (Chanel Riva dupe) and WnW Bow In My Presence (China Glaze Optical Illusion dupe)
I got these from a blog sale and they were only a couple of bucks so why not?
Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday
In my defense, I did not purchase this polish. It was a free gift when Luxola was celebrating their birthday and if you purchased anything above $50, this polish was free!
Revlon Radient, Blue Lagoon, Scandalous and Popular
I managed to find these babies during my trip to Hon Kong and I grabbed them like a mad woman. I think I actually ran to the shop when I saw them and the sales lady was laughing at me.
Butter London All Hail The Queen. Tart With A Heart and The Black Knight
These were my first BLs and I just had to get these three. HAD TO.
Nails Inc Sprinkles Sugar Lane House, Sweets Way, Pudding Lane and Topping Lane
I also couldn't resist these sweet Sprinkles polish from Nails Inc. Even their names sound so yummy!
Nubar Reclaim, Moon Eclipse and Iris Dust
I wanted to get hit free shipping for my beautybay order so I added these Nubars into my cart. Reclaim came highly recommended by Candy from Cherub's Lips. and I was in my multichrome/duochrome phase so I got the two pretty duochromes too.
OPI Absolutely Alice, Mad As A Hatter, China Glaze TMI, TTYL, FYI and GR8
My VHTF haul. I'm proud of myself that I managed to get these at rather reasonable prices! SCORE! Right now, I have 6 of the 12 OMGs (I have DV8 and 2NITE as well) so I'm gonna try to actively complate my OMG collection. I'm dead serious about at least getting the two purples so if you're willing to let go of your bottles, drop me a comment! I'd gladly take them off your hands for a reasonable price! :D
Nfu Oh #63, #64, #66 and #59
Jade Holograficos Energy, Hypnose, Facsionio Violeta, Seducao Rosa, Vermelho Surreal, Mystic Gold and Magia Negra

Cirque Never Nude, Fascination Street and Ophelia, Amy's Nail Boutique Woodie's Wish and Fiesta
piCture pOlish Denim, Amethyst, Orbit and White Wedding
Ozotic 509, 518 and 522
Yes, August's Haul was HUGE. I was going BBBMTL (Buy Buy Buy Mail Tu Laio, which loosely translates to just "buy the damn thing and stop procastinating"!) at almost all the polishes I liked. I think it was partly due to the fact that I was going to start working in the last week of August and I just wanted to blow some savings just cuz I could. HAHA!
KBShimmer Party, Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd (my very first Lynnderella!), China Glaze Ghoulish Glow, ManGlaze Fatty's Got More Blood and ILF
Nail Pattern Boldness Le Big Party and Bitches Brew. I bought Glitter Food (Fix A Flat) too but sadly I forgot to include it in the NPB family portrait. I'm a bad polish mother. :(
FNUG Psychedelic, Futuristica and Fantastica
Random OPIs: On Her Majesty's Secret Service, My Very First Knockwurst, Every Month Is Oktoberfest and Nein! Nein! Nein! Okay Fine!
China Glaze Glitter All The Way and Savina Sparkles
Glitter Gal Teal Green, Nude, Wisteria and Citrine
Sea Lore Ariel
Lush Lacquer Shattered, Afterall It's Fall, Beryy Naughty, Sugar Daddy, Just Chillin' and Halloweenie
November and December's Haul:
Essie Navigate Her and A Crewed Interest
I've wanted these two since forever and I'm glad I finally managed to track them down! :)
Gloss 'n Sparkles Goblins Grave, Edge of the World, Pyjamarama and Witches Britches
Emily de Molly: The Fifth Element, Majestic Flight, When Planets Collide and Harmony
Gloss 'n Sparkle Pixel Perfect, Emily de Molly Bright Young Things and No Love Lost, Femme Fatale Costemics Crimson Acolyte and Winter Hyacinth
Obviously the Australians have gotten this indie polish going on! LOVE LOVE LOVE all of them.
Girly Bits Howl at the Moon and Indian Summer, KBShimmer Wrapper's Delight and All Decked Out, CrowsToes Absolum and Voodoo
Nostalgic Lacquer Rock Me Amadeus, Take On Me and Karma Chameleon
Loving how these were named after such amazing songs! I'm still not over my white based glitter phase.
Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd, Once In A Blue Rune, Salad Days, Funny Money, Very Pretty Vampire, Kabbalah Bracelet, Witch Couldron Was It?, Gotta Love Brains and Love, Lace and Lilacs
What indie haul would be complete without some Lynns? I know I featured The Glittering Crowd earlier on in this post but I couldn't separate it from the rest of the family! These babies cost me a bomb but they're all so pretty. Lynnderella was one of the first few indie polish makers and I just HAD to get them.
As you can see, my indie phase hasn't quite passed yet. I'm currently in love with purple based glitter polishes! They just look so delicate and fresh! :D
And now, moving on to some mainstreams.
China Glaze Winter Holly, It's A Trap-eze and Light As Air
Color Club Halo Hues
Yes, the holo slave in me had to get these.
Butter London Jack the Lad
This one caught my eye a couple months ago and Luxola was having a 30% off promo so I jumped on the chance to get this baby!
RBL Bikini Bottom, Squarepants, Patrick Starfish, Piu Mosso, Jane and Grunge
Bought these six during the BIB2 preorder. Not all of them are BIB2s though. Can't wait to wear the Spongebob colours (top row). They're screaming SUMMER to me!
So there you go, that is my EPIC haul of shame. Obviously working has not helped with my polish addiction! I'll try to take more pictures of the hauls from 2013 and update the "Hauls" tab at the top of my blog soon!
