My Nail Polish Haul: China Glaze, Orly, Mia Secret Crackles, and Two Different Kinds of OPI Not Like the Movies

Here are some hauls I did from last week. It's fun to shop at hole-in-the-wall nail polish stores and get some of the most coveted nail polish for a third or a quarter of the retail price!

I also got some stuff from 8ty8beauty.com, mostly China Glaze Khromes that I will use for Konad-ing. We all know that chrome polish works exceptionally well with Konad.


8ty8 haul: China Glaze 2030, China Glaze Hi-tek, China Glaze Millenium, China Glaze Robotica, Orly Belle of the Ball and Rio Nights
I bought these online on Thursday and it got to me last Saturday!! Wow very fast shipping 8ty8!

I went to 3 nail polish supply stores last weekend and here's what I got:


China Glaze LOL, GR8, FYI, BFF, L8R G8R, DV8, TTYL x2, 2NITE, Tickle my Triangle, Let's Do it in 3D, Visit me in Prism, Sci-Fi (Got these for $2.75 each)



These are amazing holo polishes that I can't wait to play with.











I got two OPI Not Like the Movies (from the Katy Perry collection) from two different stores. Good thing I bought another one! They look COMPLETELY different!! If you don't know about this yet, the first batch was the beautiful, duo chromey goodness that is the original Not Like the Movies (right). Then OPI decided to change it to a silvery glittery mess without any duochrome whatsoever, or if there is, it's very minimal (left). Boo!!


I also got these Mia Secret Crackle polish for $3.50 each I think. I will try and see if these are like the OPI Shatter or China Glaze Crackles.

Swatches and nail looks using these will be up soon!

I have almost all the OMGs except FYI and TTYL and I can't find them anywhere! I can't even buy them on ebay because French laws blocked people living in Paris from buying beauty products on ebay. Boo! =(
