Last week the rest of my various orders came in, so now I’m properly overwhelmed by indie gorgeousness. Here’s a little picspam of the stuff that appeared in my mailbox.
First we have a couple of Pahlish polishes, Toxic and Timeless and My Oblivion. These are not new, but they weren’t in stock when I placed my last order, so I snagged them when I saw they were available again. And don’t you just love the new label?!
Next up is three bottles from Rainbow Honey‘s Sakura Matsuri collection. I got Koi Pond, Sakura Matsuri and Hanami. I’ve been lemming these for so long, and I was thrilled when the collection finally got back in stock!
All That Glitters recently released a new collection called The Princess Collection, and of course I had to get a few of those. My picks were Kissing On A Frog, Arose From A Sleep and Not A Prize To Be Won.
Finally, I managed to get my hands on Lynnderellas from the newest collection Sweet Somethings for a Summer Solstice. As you may know, these are now only available on eBay for buyers in the US, but luckily I got a friend to help me “mule” them over here. I got six of these this time, as I’ve snagged Common Sense in a private sale earlier.
The first three are Deep Blue Seeing, When The Moon Was A Star and 50 Shades of May-Be.
And the other three are The Garden of Even, Glass Houses and A Neutral Party.

Please let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see swatched!
Two posts in a row here tonight, but I just had to quickly show you the contents of the superfantastic package I got today! These are Lynnderella frankens, don’t you just want to drool until your keyboard shortcircuits? Maybe not from this crappy pic, though, but just use your imagination and picture these bottles a thousand times more sparkleicious, ok?
I’m sure most of you know who Lynnderella is and why these are such a big deal, if you don’t, head over here and check out her blog/shop. In short, she’s a woman who makes these awesome frankens, which are highly sought after in the nailpolish world. Her shop is open only from time to time, so you really just have to check her blog for updates to know when the store is open.
She recently had a sale where the First Edition and Early Halloween collections were available, check out the pics here. A new collection called Funny Money is announced shortly! Shipping is only available to the US, though, so we int’l girls have to make other arrangements (i.e. get someone to forward the order for us). I’m so happy a certain sweetie could help me with this, so thank you, C!
I can’t wait to try these babies, time to whip out the Gelous for some serious glitter tamin’!
Some of you might remember my strange aversion to start any new brands, and that I’ve been resisting Zoya for the longest time? Well, I’m weak and easily charmed by pretty colors and blingy finishes, so I just couldn’t resist these delicious bottles any more! A few weeks ago I finally broke down and opened the floodgates of Zoya into my stash, and here’s the result of my first ever “big” Zoya haul!
Top l to r: Isla, Jules, Apple, Edyta.
Bottom l to r: Valerie, Cynthia, Caitlin, Sara.
I bought these from Nailetc, the prices vary between $5.99 and $6.99 a bottle. Shipping was $19.99, and everything arrived quickly and in great shape (except for the weird “ZO” on Edyta, but that’s just cosmetics). This was my first time shopping from this site, so I’m very happy that everything went well.
What do you think? I love the colors I got, and I really look forward to what Zoya has to offer in the future, now that I’m on board with hoarding this brand as well. Please let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see swatched!
Last weekend my husband and I were staying at my family’s summer place with my parents, my two sisters and their families. The weather wasn’t the best, so one of the days we decided to go for a drive to the nearest city for shopping. While we were there, I stopped by H&M, and of course I picked up a few of their awesome nail polishes.
Chica Boom Boom is a bright orange/red jelly. Going Bananas is a very nice pastel yellow with some beautiful hidden shimmer. No Mambo Jambo is a bright green with turquoise shimmer, and Moody Model is a dark teal jelly.
Here are some nail wheel swatches, in the same order as the above pic.
These are very nice and pigmented, are easy to apply and affordable at only NOK 39,50 a piece. H&M has a very wide selection of nail polish, so there should be something for everyone.
Have you tried any of H&M’s nail polishes?
With OPI crapping their pants over the cheapo online retailers, it’s getting harder and harder (and more expensive!) to get OPIs here in Norway. Luckily lookfantastic.com still sells them, but unfortunately they are £9.95 a pop, but I’m such a sucker for OPI so I just had to get these babies no matter what.
From the Hong Kong Collection: Jade Is The New Black, Meet Me On The Star Ferry, Suzi Says Feng Shui.
From the España Collection and Alice in Wonderland Collection: Here Today… Aragon Tomorrow, Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees, and of course I had to get a backup of Absolutely Alice.
A special holiday kit containing My Private Jet and DS Coronation and a small pouch which I really don’t know what do do with.
The cat does not approve of this madness.
