Colorclub Halo Hues Swatches: Over The Moon, Cosmic Fate & Kismet.

Last month we had the wonderful opportunity to review the company Enospring and they were generous enough to send us some polishes from the 2012 and 2013 Halo Hues collection. Today I have three polishes from the 2013 collection to share with you all.

Let me first off say that if you don't own any polishes from the Halo Hues collection, I recommended you correct that ASAP! These beauties are absolutely stunning and I promise you that if you love holo polishes as much as I do, you will not be disappointed.

Indie Spotlight: Indie Polish

Recently I bought some polishes off Etsy from Tanya of Indie Polish (etsy || facebook). I purchased the multi-pack of 3 mini polishes for $13usd/$13.50cdn, shipping included. As a Canadian indie lover I usually feel left out because the shipping costs to Canada are so outrageous they sometimes cost more than the polish itself. So you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to discover Indie Polish, especially when the multi pack I purchased already had shipping costs worked into the price. Since Indie Polish is from Toronto as well I received my well packaged polishes in less than a weeks time and was very happy with the service and products. Here were my choices:

L-R: Finding Nemo, Gentle...It's My First Time, Finding Dory

Etude House - Strawberry Stars Candy

Hello all. Today I have another Etude House Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails polish to share. Last week I had on apricot candy, today I have Strawberry Stars Candy! I'm not too much of a pink kind of person but like I said last time, I'm a huge sucker for cute packaging. The polish has an opaque light pinkish purple base with an explosion of multi-coloured and multi-shaped glitter. Just take a look at this gorgeous macro:

ah, the oh so elusive star glitter

More swatches this way!

Haul: Clarisonic

After debating for a while, I'm finally going to blog about my hauls hehee. For the people who know me, I am a shop-aholic - a hoarder of sorts! haha...

For the past few months, my girls from an FB group and I have been sharing deals and our thoughts on good products. They are so bad for me!! Because of them, I am more aware of so many great deals and products that when I go out, I just couldn't resist the urge of picking a few items up!!
So, I present you, my readers - a "Hauls" marathon, a sneak peek to some of my recent purchases that are just piling up in my room!! I get so excited everytime I purchase something thinking "I should blog about this, share my excitement with my readers!" ahahaa .. is this a "blogger's mindset"?

Today's post is about Clarisonic!

Etude House - Apricot Candy

A couple days ago Mir made our hearts skip a beat when she showed us the super cute Tony Moly - G105 glitter polish. Today I have another absurdly cute Korean polish brand to share with you all. Earlier this year Etude House came out with the Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails collection and I was smitten the second I laid eyes on them. There are four colours in the collection and I managed pick up two of the four, Apricot Candy (what I'm sharing today) and Strawberry Stars. I must say, these Korean cosmetic companies really know how to market their products because I think the cuter the packaging the more appealing the product is. I must admit my main purpose of purchasing these polishes was because the ice cream bottles were so darn cute. But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this colour despite orange being one of my least favourite polish colours. I think what made changed my mind about this polish was the mix of glitter. Take a look at this macro shot:

Too pretty to resist!
This way for swatches!
