August favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! It's the first day of September and that means a recap post is in order. I'm not sure how I feel about summer being over. On the one hand, this was an exhausting summer for me but on the other hand I'm not looking forward to dreadful September either. It's gonna be more stress and studying, only with cold weather and rain. August didn't have a lot of nail art but I did manage to do a few nice manicures, so here are my favorites. 

August favorites
I've been into gradients this month and this blue glittery one was my favorite. I also redid my colorful paisley look and included a tutorial this time. Revlon Royal has been my number one lemming that has been squashed this month, so I created this jelly sandwich to celebrate. Finally I did some bright coral nails with a touch of glitter. Perfect for summer! 

Even though I've been busy this month, I shopped a lot to get rid of the stress. I've acquired a few awesome polishes and also some nail art stuff. First there was a Konad haul with my first ever Konad stamping polishes and stamping plate. 

Konad White, Black and M27
Then there was an amazing Fragrance Direct haul. I got 3 polishes from my wishlist plus 2 other pretties. 

Revlon Royal and Popular, Essie Bikini So Teeny and Avenue Maintain, Sally Hansen Wet Cement
Flormar came out with a gorgeous glitter collection and I ended up with 3 of them. 

Flormar GL01, GL09 and GL10
Then I got my Bondi New York subscription box and look at those gorgeous colors! 

Bondi Horny Mistress, Uptown Girl and Teal Magnolia
Yesterday I received some awesome nail mail all the way from Israel. Nailz Craze stamping plates! These have been on my wishlist for ages. 

NC01, NC02 and NC06
 Finally, this month I've received an amazing gift from Hannah. She sent me a Pretty Serious polish as a graduation present and the lovely Karen added one extra. So I'd like to thank them both for this amazing gift! 

Pretty Serious Phantom Planet and BSOD
That's it! This post seemed to never end. Make sure you click on the highlighted polish names to go to the corresponding posts if you missed them. I wish you all a great September!

    Love all of those manis!! Great hauls too.

  4. Gorgeous manis and awesome haul! I am so looking forward to cooler weather (not that we get much here) but I can't believe it is already September.

  5. Thank you! Shopping is so good for relieving stress but my wallet is weeping now hehe.

  6. They do! Formula is not the best but I guess it's worth it.

  7. Thank you! I'm not looking forward to cool weather at all because we didn't have a lot of very hot days this summer. And I've spent most of the summer inside anyway. But at least the sun is less depressing. It's been raining every day for over a week and I hate it.
