Hello my lovelies! We're already a few days into February and I finally managed to post my January recap post. January was a little weird shopping wise because I didn't buy much polish. From the beginning of December, when I went on my trip, to the end of January I didn't buy any polish. This no-buy wasn't intentional and I can assure you that I've bought plenty of makeup, clothes, books and whatnot. I just wasn't in the mood to buy polish. The only polishes I got during that period were gifts. That all ended last week when I made an order for some KBShimmer polishes. But I will show you those in next month's haul because they haven't arrived yet. Anyway, I've decided to show you my makeup purchases of the month so this post won't be empty. But first let's take a look at the favorites.
I haven't done tons of nail art this month because I don't wear it to work, yet I did participate in almost every week of the TPA Group Challenge so I came up with a few manicures that I love. I'm gonna start with the top left manicure which is my controversial ikat manicure. Not everyone agreed that it looks like an ikat print, but I still love it. Then top right we have my colorful hippie nails that a lot of people enjoyed. Bottom right is a bright blue glitter placement and finally bottom right some elegant henna inspired nails.
Now let's get to the haul. First let me show you an amazing package that I received from the lovely Julie from Turtlechick's Nails N Tales. She sent me Zoya Dream along with another gorgeous polish: Revlon Rainforest. She also sent me some candy and a cute pencil. Thank you so much, Julie!!!
I made an order on The Makeup Shop and got a long time lemming of mine: the Sleek Vintage Romance palette. I also got a Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade San Paulo and the Real Techniques Shading brush. Plus a random purchase from the drugstore: the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation (shade 100 Ivory).
Another online purchase, this time from 1001 Cosmetice: more lip products. Rimmel Apocalips in Apocaliptic and Celestial, and Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in shade 330 Sloane's Plum.
Finally, some random drugstore shopping on the last day of the month. I'm very excited about the Essence I Love Extreme Volume mascara and the Palmer's lip butter.
That's it for this month. I hope there will be a lot more polish to show in next month's haul. Until then I wish you a very happy and awesome February! Take care!
