Yesterday, I shared about my experience at Salon Melbourne and today, as promised, I’m going to show you my mini shopping haul.  I say mini because I didn’t really buy as much as I really wanted to buy.  I had to restrain myself because we are moving house next week and we need to pay for cleaner, steam carpet cleaner and removal men.  Argh!

spring nail polish, ZOYA intimate, zoya nail polish, nail polish haul

ZOYA Intimate Collection ($25 AUD) featuring Dannii, Jules, Caitlin, Dove, Marley and Gemma.  It’s my first time with ZOYA so I hope we’ll get along.  I’m glad they have names instead of numbers but they’re still not as cool as OPI’s kickass names 😛

nail polish haul, nail polish blog, best beauty blog

Layla Magneffect 24 Starry Night ($10 AUD) : I have been very curious about magnetic nail polishes but not really seen them in shops so I was happy to see the Layla Magneffect range at Salon Melbourne.  The guy who served me was totally gross though!  He coughed into his hand, took my money and then coughed again and handed me back my change.  YUK!  He was Asian like me.  Damn us Asians!  LOL.

OPI Alpine Snow ($10 AUD) : Like, OMG!  The OPI stall was packed full of ladies because they were half their normal RRP.  I so wanted EVERYTHING because I love me some OPI…but I only bought one.  A pure white…mainly for nail art purposes 🙂

ZOYA Rina ($3 AUD) : I picked this up when I went to pay for the above Intimate Collection because it was cheap and because the glittery green caught my eye.

Crown Eyeshadow Smudge Brush ($5 AUD) : I had my eye on some Rae Morris brushes…but I only walked away with this brush.  I am thinking of using it to clean up my nails after I paint them.


Please note :-

1.  I swear I’m not turning into a nail polish blogger!
2.  I will update this blog post with links when I swatch them.
3.  Two of nails on my swatching hand decided to commit suicide when they saw my nail polish haulage!  I now have nubbins!  Damn them!

Anyway, let me know what you have bought recently.  I need to stop buying!!!  Arghhh!!!

    How amazing was Salon Melbourne?! I totally overspent! Posted my haul on my website…I went a bit crazy with Zoya too! How insane was the crowd at the OPI stand?!

    Would’ve suggested we go together if I’d known you were heading there! Always fun meeting fellow bloggers! 🙂

        @Ling, I actually really liked the Zoya polish! I applied it last night and it’s great! What problems did you have with yours?

      @Madam M, Surprisingly Zoya stall was quiet so I spent AGES there. I wish I got more OPI but there were girls everywhere pushing in!!!
