If you're not into haul posts, you can skip this and wait for the next challenge mani. (It'll be the "Inspired by Fashion", namely by some fun and frilly pieces from Victoria's secret.)
For the rest of you dirty little addicts some polish porn:
I knew I'd be going to the U.S. for a working (cough*shopping*cough) trip, so I had put off any polish shopping from the whole autumn (well, at least some of it..). As some (or most) brands are a lot cheaper in the U.S. than where I live, I happened to run into some serious polish shopping opportunities. (Looked up salons and beauty supply stores ahead from the internet and marked them onto a map? Me?!? Ahem...).
This is what I got:

That was it. 60 bottles of polish, if I counted them right. None broken in my suitcase, none confiscated by the customs or other authorities. Yay!
I've already used a couple of them, and others you will see shortly featured in this blog. I decided to put all these (and a few polishes I bought since, like some from the Essence vampires collection) to a separate box of untrieds, and you bet I want to get these to join my collection soon!
So stay tuned, and if you've seen a polish in this post that you'd like to see swatched, just drop me a note!
