Nail Polish Haul + NOTM

Hello, loves! This weekend was SO fun! I FINALLY hung out with my girlfriends! I haven't seen them it what seemed to be YEARS! But it wasn't really that long, just a couple months, which is still super long! But it was such a relaxing weekend. We did typical girl stuff. Went to a lounge in L.A. on Friday night, had a slumber party, woke up on Saturday and went shopping, got massages, and had dinner. I had a BLAST!

When we went shopping, my friend, Eliza, took us to the best kept secret for nail supplies. You are gonna go crazy when I tell you how much I paid for these OPI, China Glaze, and Essie nail polishes. My OPI polishes were 3 for $12, Essie polishes were $3, and China Glaze polishes were $2.50! My grand total for 8 nail polishes = $30.50. INSANE, RIGHT? Seriously ladies, if ur anything like me, and are always on the hunt for a bargain, I suggest trying to find a nail supply store. This place that I went to looked like a mom&pop store where all the local manicurists went to buy their stuff. They had EVERYTHING you could think of in there, not just polishes. It almost seemed like a whole-sale type place. I was just so overwhelmed by all the colors! Thank goodness I had my girls with me, otherwise, I woulda bought 100 polishes! =P

I was in a spring mood, so for the most part, all the colors that I chose were really bright. I LOVE all the colors that I got. I'm super excited to use all these colors!

Names of polishes are listed below each photo. I also added a swatch so you can see how the color turns out in real life.

Do You Lilac It? (1 coat)
Mod-Ern Girl (1 coat)
Manicurist of Seville (1 coat)
Java Mauve-a (2 coats)
Jade is the New Black (1 coat)
Gargantuan Green Grape (2 coats)
Sew Psyched (2 coats)
Sunset Sail (2 coats)

Now onto my Nails of the moment! I LOVE this shade of green by Essie. This is my FIRST Essie polish and I am SO happy with the way it turned out. The consistency is amazing and I highly recommend Essie to everyone!

I hope you enjoyed this post! I also hope my little bargain tip helped! I think it's time for me to buy a nail polish rack so that I can properly display my polishes. I have a feeling that I will be returning to that place VERY soon!

Me & my girls at Boiling Crab. Love these girls like NO OTHER! (Thanks for not laughing at me!)

Thanks for reading, loves! See you in my next post!
