Major Haul: Wins and Gifts

I would say that I have a problem (I do), but I have to admit that I only purchased 4 of the polishes you're about to see.  The rest I received as a giveaway win and as a thank you for one of the cutest bloggers I know.

Let the drooling commence!

That's 12 polishes from one weekend.

Let's take a closer look at my goodies:

I won these in a giveaway from Traci at The Trace Face Philes.  They also came with a base coat, which is not photographed here.

Color Club
New Bohemian
Shabby Drab
Rad Nomad
Earthy Angel
Nomadic in Nude
Red-ical Gypsy

These are 3 Sally Hansens I purchased myself this weekend.  The 2 CSMs are from a new collection that I can't seem to find any info on.  In fact, the middle polish's name is Register Trademarked so I'm beyond curious where these are from.  If you have any info, please comment or shoot me an email!

Sally Hansen
Good to Grape
Greige Gardens
Nail'd It

The sweet Jenn from All That is Gorgeous went above and beyond for her guest posters that volunteered swatches during the week she hurt her hand.  She sent me the two polishes on the right as a thank you; the Orly I ordered in order to cheer myself up on a bad day last week.

Orly Fowl Play
Maybelline Notorious Navy
Wet n Wild Give Me a Price Quote

I seriously can't believe my eyes here.  I went away for New Years Weekend and came home to a mailbox chock full of these.  I should go away more often!

Okay, so tell me girls, what should I swatch first??


  1. You are too sweet!!!  I hope you enjoy them!!

  2. LOL @ having a problem!!  We don't like to admit that.  Aaahhh, New Bohemian is on my wish list.  How I long for you!!!
    I'm interested in seeing Good to Grape.

  3. New Bohemian with your skin tone...I can't even begin to imagine the gorgeousness!  

    I know that you live in Brooklyn.  I know of a place in Queens that sells Color Club for $3.  I've only ordered from them online, but the shipping is a bit pricey.  If you're interested, please let me know and I'll send you all the info.

  4. Wow, what a wonderful surprise!! :D  Congratulations on your win! ^-^

  5. That would be great!!  Thanks so much Amanda!  My email is marijonails@gmail.com.

  6. Awesome!!! I have a feeling that this won't be the last nail mail you receive this week ;)

  7. congrats on your win, nice haul! =)

  8. New Bohemian, Shabby Drab or Rad Nomad! =D
