All Polished Off With....

Hey y'all,

Since I have been a horrible blogger between looking at all my PBX sister's photos on facebook during recruitment this week, applying to 15 jobs this week, working, ordering and crafting for my Littles and Big's birthdays I have had very little time to sit down and blog/become creative with a blog topic but you are in for a treat since today I am posting 3 times. Yes you read that right. I didn't want a humongous-ly long post so I am splitting up my rambles into three parts today so stay tuned. So here we go with post #1 on this lovely Friday!

So a few weeks ago I joined Meghan and Angela's nail polish swap. I am starting to get addicted to swaps if you couldn't tell. I mean who doesn't like meeting new blog friends, searching for the perfect gift and then getting an amazing surprise. I was partnered up with the lovely Kelly of Living the Before and y'all, I was seriously spoiled.
The sweet card and little makeup bag
The beautiful polishes. Told you I was spoiled. 
OPI's Brisbane Bronze
Essie's Going Incognito
Sally Hansen Top/Base Coat
Small blue sparkly polish
Revlon Nail Files.
So now that you have seen my beautiful gifts, I have a confession. I am a nail polish addict. Well, more like a big collector and this past week I have found the best deals so of course I grabbed more. I had been doing so well all summer in not picking up polish but here is what I have grabbed.
My collection of mini polishes in my new makeup bag.

I might have a few polishes.

Julep Polishes from their September Mystery Box. If you haven't heard about Julep you can read my post here. But they offered the Julep Mavens a mystery box worth between $60-200. I got a smaller box with these four colors(L to R): Portia, Jennifer, *No Name(unreleased color) and Eva.
The un-named color reminds me of Sephora by OPI's Mermaid to Order
Current nails: butter London's Royal Navy with Julep's Portia on top.
Portia reminds me of fish scales/mermaid scales with the large chunky blue/green glitter.

So during Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty I picked up the butter LONDON's buy one get one free deal. I got (L to R): Slapper, Henley Regatta, Royal Navy and Macbeth(English Major Nerd Choice). I was torn because I also wanted HRH and British Racing Green
I also found these OPI colors on Clearance at Ulta.
I Brake for Manicures
William Tell Me About OPI
Suzi Takes the Wheel
And last but not least in my nail polish deals of the past two weeks, I found Essie at Marshalls!
Glamour Purse
Little Brown Dress
Absolutely Shore
Tonight I am rocking my letters as I write this since today, Friday is Kappa Chapter's BID DAY! I can't wait to hear all about it!

Do you collect anything? Favorite nail polish color?
Peace and Blessings,


  1. LOVE IT! You had a great partner, girlfriend! ;)

  2. The london butter on the left is perfect! I've been getting quite a few compliments on my current nail color, Essie's Glam Purse. It's my first fall transition color of the year!

  3. Wow - what a collection! Love what you got for the swap :D

  4. Glad you liked everything!! Can't wait to do my post..I may have used both nail polishes on one hand :)

  5. Can't believe you found Essie at Marshalls! I've been hearing that lately... I'm definitely going to head there this weekend and see if I can spot them. You have so many nail polishes... you should set up a salon ;) I wish I had that many!!

    1. I know! They had a decent selection too! As far as the collection, it has been built over 4 years and lots of buy one get one sales.

  6. love it! i'm an addict too! i missed the butter london sale and i'm sooo sad! enjoy all the new colors!!! happy friday!

  7. Wow, your collection is amazing! :) And super great colors from your swap partner, I really like the incognito shade. I love swaps! Hope you have a great weekend.
