I'm Back...and with some Nail Mail!!

10:35 PM

So, I'm sorry I've been missing lately. I've missed you all so very much! I was on vacation with my munchkin for 2 weeks, then spent a couple days with my husband then we had company. I've had well over 350 photos to resize from my hauls and nail mail from the past 3-4 weeks. I'm not going to fill this with a bunch of words I'm going to get right to the goods. I'm doing everything I can to get back on track and I hope you all are still hanging around. And for those of you that are... ENJOY!! This is all nail mail and 2 mini hauls from the day before I went on vacation until today (3.5 weeks total).

**WARNING** Picture heavy!!

I went to CVS before my vacation and picked up these guys with some ExtraBucks I had lying around.

CVSWet n Wild - Fast Dry - Sage in the City, Spoiled - Show Me The Money, I Only Eat Salads, Pet My Peacock, Trust Fund Baby and Cougar Attack

Later that day, I got 3 packages in the mail. One was from my friend Ana in New Mexico, one was some items she got me for Mother's Day from a mini blog sale that Painting Outside The Lines had and the last package were winnings from The Beautiful World of Lennyn B.

From Ana: Milani - Teal and Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Gray by Gray

 Mother's Day present from Ana who purchased from Painting Outside the Lines

 Max Makeup - Cherimoya - Matte.n.a - Documentary, Matinee, Kiss Scene, Western, Showtime and Drama

Max Makeup - Cherimoya - Vernis Classique - Urban Jungle, XTC, Grape Diamonds, Love Lost, Color Collision and Baby Love

 My winnings from The Beautiful World of Lennyn Bessence - mini lipgloss set, OPI - NYC Ballet Petites, Maybelline - Lasting Drama gel eyeliner and Sally Hansen - Salon Effects Nail Strips in Wishful Pinking

OPI - NYC Ballet petites - My Pointe Exactly, Don't Touch My Tutu!, Care to Danse? and Pirouette My Whistle

I ran to Wegmans to grab groceries and saw that Revlon polishes were on sale for $2.99, plus I had 2 $1 off manufacturer coupons, plus they had an in-store coupon for buy any 2 Revlon color products and get a free bag worth $15. There's no way I could have passed that up.

LOVE this bag!! Came in handy for carrying snacks for my vacation!

Revlon - Scandalous and Sassy

Now onto what arrived at my house while I was away.

These boxes (and some others that I forgot to add) is what was waiting for me when I got back from vacation.

My May add-ons for my Julep Maven Box showed up while I was away.

Julep - Fina and Sarah

During the first (of the recent 2) half off sales at Cult Nails, Toxic Seaweed became discontinued. I had to miss the sale last minute and that one was on my list. I was broken hearted and made a plea on my Facebook fan page to see if anyone had extras they were willing to sell or swap. Sure enough, the lovely Bridget replied that she had 2. Imagine my gratitude!!! I bought them both and had planned a swap with a fan of mine. Look at what she snuck inside the box for me as a gift!! I was almost in tears! My top 2 lemmings in 1 box?! Who woulda thought?

Cult Nails - Toxic Seaweed and Max Factor - Fantasy Fire

Look at it in all it's glory!! OMG IT'S SO PRETTY!!! 

So then the 2nd half off sale came along at Cult Nails. I wasn't going to miss this one too! I made a purchase for myself, AND my husband decided to purchase some for me for my Mother's Day present. :o)

 My Cult Nails order from the half off sale.
Let Me Fly, Nevermore and Cruisin' Nude (So much more incredible in person than you could ever capture in photos. It has a beautiful iridescence shimmer to it!!)

 My husband's Cult Nails half off sale Mother's Day order. (Seduction is for a swap with a friend)
Iconic, Hypnotize Me and Living Water 

Leah at Llarowe recently had a birthday sale so I decided to jump on it to make my first purchase from her. I was so excited because I've been drooling over several beauties for so long. I wanted Glitter Gal - Lizard Belly, but of course it was sold out. So, I decided to try a gorgeous linear holo I've been eyeing.

 Ludurana - Aurora Boreal - Magnifica

 So pretty!

My camera/lighting doesn't do this justice. It's STUNNING!

I received SEVERAL credits on my Copious account and I used them one by instead of saving up. Sometimes they expire so quickly, but I got amazing deals on each of these and only paid over $0.01 for 1 item and even then it was still less that $3. :o) These are all my Copious orders.

May: Nabi - Cute Punky

May: Zoya - ArizonaLara and Wednesday

 June: Zoya - Maisie

 June: NYC - Times Square Tangerine Creme

June: Color Club - Object of Envy

(I'm still waiting on 2 more orders from Copious)

My June Julep Maven Box got stuck and my add-ons arrived first. Those are below and my Maven Box will have it's own post later on. :o) Trust me it's worth the wait.

Julep - Courteney and Claire

Back around Mother's Day Bloom.com teamed up with Pampered Chef and gave away some codes that were good for $20 off an order of $20 or more on Bloom.com. I finally redeemed mine!

 My goodies!!

eos - strawberry sorbet lip balm, Zoya - Mitzi and Phoebe

Creative Nail Fun had this fantastic idea to have monthly nail "pen" pals. I got paired with Kelly from Kelly's Kolors. I went on vacation shortly after and I wasn't able to mail mine yet, but I've received my box from her and it's awesome!! 

Borghese - Stellare Notte, Face of Australia - Another Daiquiri Please, BYS - Bright Purple, nail stickers, Australis - Crystal Color Top Coat - Speck-tacular, Australis - Limited Edition - Flip Flops and Max Factor - Ivory (This last one was for Maggie. So very sweet of her!)

I decided to take the leap and use some of my Zoya Share the Love Points. 

 Zoya - Remove + with Big Flipper, pamphlet of all Zoya colors and color spoons for the entire Beach & Surf Collection.

Lastly, today my mom sent me a box of all the stuff we accidentally left at her place, plus some other goodies. This is what she tossed in there for me! 

 Julep - Daisy and Robin, Daylight Defense (she didn't end up being too fond of her Maven box this month) and South of France - French Milled Bar Soap - Mango.

 I haven't stopped sniffing this since it got here. It smells delicious!! I'm surprised I haven't tried to take a bite out of it yet. It smells like the Fruit Stripe gum

So, that's all the nail mail and a couple little hauls from the past 3.5 weeks. I'll be working on my haul post from my vacation next. It feels so good to be back. I hope you guys enjoy this! Now, I'm off to do a mani so I can get back into my NOTD posts too! :o) Please hang in there! 

Happy Polishing!!
