The Haul of Shame ..... :) June Style

Hi Goddesses

You know how I'm naughty, especially with polish buying / swapping / gimme gimme ?  Well, this month I wasn't naughty.  Oh my god, I was criminally insane!   This haul post ... well, it doesn't give me pride to show how much money I spent on polish this month, cos actually there are things in life that are more important, BUT it does give me an insane amount of giddiness and thrills.

Fortunately for me, I have to go on a no buy now - my birthday is coming up, and I have to give the wondergirls in my birthday nail group a stab at finding polishes to buy for me lol.  It will also give me a chance to maybe get some perspective.   There is only a little more nail mail on the way - some Pahlishes I bought today, a couple of items from a blog sale and my JADE holos, which are still out there somewhere !! Come to Momma, I NEED you !!!

So, first of all, we're going to look at the swaps because, altogether now - Swaps Don't Count!

I've been lucky to do some HUGE swaps recently, as well as some more normal sized ones, and here they are.

So, first up, my package from El - look how cutely it was wrapped.

And once I ripped it all open ..... NerdLacquer lemming - KILLED!  There's also a Lynnderella, Orly's Haileys Comet, OPI Nemesis from the Spiderman Collex, and some Milani randoms.

Then my super swap with Carolina from Colores de Carole, which includes a Catherine Arley, the Nabi magnetics, some Duris mmmmmmm, and Orly Buried Alive and Mysterious Ways.

My swap with the gorgeous Missy of Gnarly Gnails - NerdLcquer !!!!  1 lemming killed :) and 2 little cwute Spiderman minis.

And a supersized box from Bee - just look at this box shot.  As someone who suffers with depression, well, this may just be the antidote - looking at that box of brightness was just pure happy :)

So what was in it - Essie - the Lights, Camera, Action Collex -

All the new CG neons hummana mummana

CG Electropop Brights

and sweeties and treaties!

Ok, now we have Cauldron Drippings from the lovely Brittany.

My swap from Victoria, who is one of my favourite swappers.  She basically goes shopping for me :)  Thanks to her I have some Pam's Whimsicals

 and all these lovelies too, plus 2 OPIs she forgot to send lol.

The the lovely Lyncia sent me some Zoyas mmmmmmm.  Zuza, Wednesday, Arizona, Carly and Kimber.

Cult Nails loveliness from Emma - Seduction, In A Trance and Let Me Fly.

Flormar loveliness from Aylin as well as a couple of holos :)

And the sensationalist swap of all DS Glamour from Taylor (although it cost me The Glittering Crowd, I think it's worth it).

OK, now, just so that we're clear, all of the above were swaps, therefore they DO NOT COUNT :)  These lovelies, however, do ......

3 lovelies from Pam's Girly Bits - Daddy's Little Girl, Star Spangled and the GAWJUS Mother May I?

Love Letters from Candy Lacquer and Kitchen Sink from Amy's Nail Boutique.  Why did I buy 2 of each ?  Cos I have a frankening idea :)

4 Enchanted Polishes - Across The Universe, Cranberry Cosmos, Magic Mirror and Dizzy Mizz Lizzy.

More Llarowe loveliness - GlitterGal Fiery Furnace Brilliant, Ozotic 506, Lynderella Sweets To The Sweet, Ozotic 515, and HITS Hera, to replace the one I accidentally smashed .....

3 Models Own polishes - Blue Mad, Soda Pink and Balearic Cool.

And 4 Nails Incs - All Saints Road, Kabaret, London Bridge and Chandos Place.

Some British bargains !!  Yes, there is such a thing.  W7 is a brand that seems to be growing in profile. Their range is expanding all the time, and I'll be featuring a lot of them on the blog soon.  These are 4 polishes from their Mirror Collection.

And some SH HDs and 2 Jesse's Girls which were ridiculo cheap.

The Color Club Take Wing collex - my lord they're gorgeous!

2 Konad plates I wanted and a whole slew of Konad polishes - yup!  I'm determined to get better lol.

And here ... oh my WOW - my honeys from Rainbow Honey.  If you haven't heard of this seller before, UGH, she's to die for.  She reminds me of NerdLacquer, THAT'S how good she is, and there's a major eulogy coming soon on the blog :)   This is Hoof Wrassle, 20% Cooler, Pinkie Promise, The Worst Possible Thing and The Element of Magic.  It's also worth mentioning that I ordered a 6th, Koi Pond, and Dee discovered a quality issue with it.  She immediately contacted every buyer and told them she would be replacing every bottle she'd sold.  Awesome service.

3 lovely polishes from Feenix - Key West Treasure, Flames and Beam Me Up, a holographic top coat.

Roxy from Amy's Nail Boutique and South St by Candeo - South St was a swap with Rachel, so doesn't count :)

Some more W7 loveliness.  First of all, this was the box of happiness that arrived -

it had these W7s in, which seems quite similar to the Color Club Take Wings ...

these super on trend polishes - each of them has tiny matte glitter in - one of them is in the Giveaway.  The blue one is STUNNING.

And then the only 2 polishes I wanted from the CG On Safari collex - Kalahari Kiss and Desert Sun.

3 polishes from Darling Diva - Dreamy (a holo top coat), Angry Beaver and Purple Dreams.

4 Lynns which arrived today.  Do you know, I unwrapped these with such sadness.  I ordered them a few days before the LynnderellaDramaRama went down and had stopped looking forward to them arriving.  But once they did?  Goddammit, look how BEAUTIFUL they are, sensational, even.  What a bloody annoying waste that the woman has soured her brand.  I am sure I will wear them eventually, but I can't, not yet, not til the stench has passed.

And my 11 Lush Lacquers - wow, I've been waiting for this package!  If you've not found their shop on Etsy yet, it is pure Glitterama- Heaven lol.  This is Snap Crackle Pop, Mr Bubble and Birthday Cake.

and Party Hearty and Pinky Swear (which I am having BIIIIIIG trouble keeping away from Beth).

and Party Rockin, Lite Brites and Dippin Dots which has now been renamed to Flippin Out.

and Neon Blast and Slime Time.

And then there's .... oh, that's it.  Awwwww.  I was having such fun :(    I really don't know which one to play with first. Someone emailed me after my Untrieds post to point out she counted over 200 polishes in it - whoops!!!

See you soon - it's Indie Week on the blog next week, so we're bound to have some drool :)  Enjoy xx :)
