April's EPIC Polish Haul


Hello!!

First of all, sorry for my absence this past week! It was super busy at school - we made a magazine with out class! So it was super fun as well :D But now I'm all back with nail polish!!

Today I have an epic polish haul to show you all :D Today's post actually features 3 really big hauls - together, they're massive! But the best part? I only had to pay for one of them :D 

Let's not waste a minute more and immediately get down to all the pretties!

First up: an E.L.F. haul! My friends got me an E.L.F. voucher for my birthday and since these polishes don't cost much, I was able to get 25 of them without having to pay a thing myself! Yeah, 25, you read that right :p

I got a pack of 14 mini polishes which came in a neat little box, and then I also got a pack of 10 full sized polishes. I had some money on the voucher left so I also got a nail file and an extra green polish :D


Here's the 10 full sized polishes - they're all dark polishes and glitters. I already swatched a bunch of these and I really like them!


Then here's the nail file and the green polish. Sadly, this polish was called Teal Blue so I expected a nice teal blue polish (the pictures of the polishes aren't very colour accurate on the E.L.F. site). It's pretty much a very bright green though (my camera isn't showing it properly) so whoever came up with that name was a bit colour blind!


And here's some pictures of the mini pack - which is filled with polishes from three sides!




Next up, some polishes I got through a polish swap with the lovely Franzi from FrankieHuntersNails!

I spotted her beloved OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and I knew it was her favourite off- white and that it was very hard to find anywhere anymore. So I suggested a polish swap and sent her some extra polishes, and she sent me a bunch of them too!

I got the 7 b.pretty chrome polishes which you can't get over here and which are really good for stamping - I already used one in this design here! I also asked for two Misslyn polishes and I already swatched them - they're gorgeous! I'll be sharing some swatches soon :D


Haha and then this was very funny: this card was the first thing I saw when I opened Franzi's package! :D It made me laugh SO hard! This is what's awesome about getting nail mail from fellow polish friends, they really get what's so special about getting a package like this!


And then I have the ultimate haul from Lyn B Designs!!

She had a 50% off sale in her Etsy shop (and also included a mystery LE too if you ordered more than 3 polishes). I jumped at the chance - Lyn B's have been on my wishlist for SO SO long now and I couldn't resist anymore! I got 8 in total and so I received the mystery LE polish too.


I got: Mind Palace (based on the Sherlock series), Source of All Our Power, Time and Relative Dimension in Space (I could not resist this one as it's based on Doctor Who!!)


Here's a bottle shot of Mind Palace - I literally gasped when I unwrapped this one!


Next up are: Wish Granting Factory, So Changeable (also based on Sherlock!) and I also got the top coat BShiny because I've never tried a top coat from an indie brand before.


And then also: Iocaine Powder, Galaxy We Call the Milky Way, and the awesome mystery LE Pigment of the Imagination.


Close-up bottle picture of Galaxy We Call the Milky Way!! I'm wearing it right now and I love it! It's so so so pretty. Swatches will be up soon too ;)


So, what do you think of my big hauls? Any polishes in particular that you really like? I can't wait to swatch them all and show them to you! :D

Thanks for reading!

  4. Wow, and I thought I was buying lot of nail polishes recently :D I love that E.L.F. box. Right now I'm drooling over the Lyn B Designs etsy shop, since there are some Alice in Wonderland themed nail polishes (I'm very narcissistic about my name LOL), thanks for sharing this awesomeness :D

    1. Haha well I only had to pay for the LynB's so I figured it was still within the limits of "a lot of polish" but not yet "omg too much polish" lol! Ooh yes those Alice in Wonderlands look really nice! Haha I would totally buy a polish because it had my name too :D

  9. Ohh die zogenaamde Teal Blue heb ik ook. Inderdaad geen blue of teal of iets in die trant te bekennen! Wat een haul zeg, wauw. Er zijn twee waar ik écht heel nieuwsgierig naar ben!
    Wish Granting Factory en So Changeable. Zien er prachtig uit!

    1. Oooh Wish Granting Factory heb ik op dit moment aan!! Een heel mooi oud-roze/paarse kleur (moeilijk te beschrijven) met gouden glitters, vind hem super :) So Changeable kijk ik ook naar uit om eens te swatchen! Ik dacht eerst dat de ELF een foutje gemaakt had met hun etiketjes op de nagellak en me een foute gestuurd had maar als ie bij jou ook helemaal niet blauw eruitziet, ligt het dus gewoon aan de naam ;)

  13. Sorry for replying so late, but thank you for this lovely mention! My note was nothing against this little love letter you sent me! I will definitely post it some time!
    I really hope you have fun with the polishes and I hope to show yours soon! MBSW is already in use and I also tried the other ones. I will show swatched as soon as I can find the time to!
    Hopefully we can repeat this!

    1. Haha I'm glad you liked the card! I look forward to seeing your swatches - I'm quite curious how the purple polish and the blue glitter one look as I don't own them myself ;) It is definitely worth repeating sometime! :D
