lilacquer puca (FREE~!)- i bought lilacquer bakeneko (the full-sized one) and cathleen, who owns the lilacquer etsy store, sent me a free one! so cool!
la colors treasure island ($1)- a polish i used to own, but gave away to one of my little piano students because she liked it so much. wasn't that nice of me? i thought i didn't really like it that much anyway. but sure enough, after i gave it away, i decided it was gorgeous and i needed it. so i kept stalking dollar tree until i found another one. good story.
sinful gorgeous ($1.99)- it seems like i buy at least one sinful polish every month doesn't it? well here's a spoiler alert: today's september 1st and i already bought another one for this month. heehee~! anyways, back to gorgeous. it's a fitting name because it really is gorgeous. it's a chrome duochrome (is that redundant?) that flashes blue, teal, and green. very mermaid-esque, which is always good in my book.
milani hd ($2.49)- i had a $3 off coupon at cvs, so i decided to pick up another bottle of the awesome hd. my other bottle was getting dangerously low from making too many holo frankens. i just love these milani holos. click here to see the rainbows that hd produces.
nicole by opi a million sparkles ($3)- you might be wondering how i got this polish for $3. well i'll tell you. i randomly got a $5 off coupon when i bought a drink at cvs the other day, and of course i decided to use it on an awesome polish! i've never tried bar glitter before (truth be told, i've never found it particularly appealing), but this one looked so sparkly that i couldn't resist! and plus, you know, the coupon.
julie g peep toe pumps ($3.99)- this is the first julie g i've ever tried. i saw swatches of it online, and it looked like the perfect raspberry shade, which i've been hunting for for a long time.
nina ultra pro electric slide ($4.69)- this combines two of my favorite things- green and iridescent glitter. it's a super bright green that looks like jelly sandwich in a bottle. awesome.
nina ultra pro holographic topcoat ($4.69)- it's not really a holographic topcoat, like i've said before. it's mostly just gold iridescent glitter, which i love~!
milani hot pink ($5.49)- i loved milani lavender so much that i had to try another jewel fx (even though hot pink doesn't say "jewel fx" on the bottle like lavender does. . . . hmmm).
lilacquer bakeneko ($9 + $2 s/h)- the tiny sample size of bakeneko that i bought was making me feel panicked that i would run out of such a glorious polish, so i pretty much had to buy a full-sized bottle. it's seriously amazing, if you haven't heard me blabbering about it already. see swatches here.
GRAND (POLISH) TOTAL FOR AUGUST: $38.34
ok, so at this point, i'd already spent waaaaay too much on actual polishes, but then i just had to buy-
mash plates 26-50 ($13.99)- these came with free shipping! and they're just so darn cute! click here to see all of the plates i got from the awesome oooh, shinies! blog.
THE REAL GRAND TOTAL FOR AUGUST: $52.33
eek :S. i went just a little (a lot) overboard. i will do better this month, i swear!
