April and May haul part 1

Hi ladies! Welcome to all new followers!

So, I've been hauling....I'm now used to shopping around during the day with my baby, she is my shopping companion, lol. I'm eager to know if she will like the same things I like when she is a bit older, what do you think?
So, whenever I go out I'm usually I'm on a nail lacquer kick....who would have guessed, lol

Let's start with Cremes first...

I wanted a creme banana color for summer and I think this is it :)

Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow

I thought I had this color at home, realized I had Blue me Away! and not Pacific Blue so I picked it up

Sally Hansen Pacific Blue

I wanted to try these for so long but couldn't come to terms with the colors they provided since so many of them are dupable, non unique colors, finally I fell in love with Lavender Cloud. Looks like a white with a slight blue tint to it, but at closer look it is lavender. A gorgeous color indeed...

Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud

By now, if anyone is wondering, I chose to take single pictures of everything just because I try fitting everything in on 1 picture and each time it came out blurry....I need a new camera, lol

Next up, a nice teal that I don't own yet, it's about 3 notches darker than China Glaze's For Audrey

Sally Hansen Sea Breeze

I've found the perfect bright pink for summer toes, not too neon and not too dark drabby. It's just right :)

Sally Hansen Speedy Sunburst

Loreal came out with a summer collection, anywho, I picked up this nice color from that collection...

Loreal Ocean Breeze

Got a backup of one of my Holy Grail faves..

Revlon Cherries in the Snow

Last of the cremes is not a creme all the way, it does have very small sparse glitters, but I love the color

Sinful Colors Rise and Shine

A few frosties here and there...

Just a dark blue frost color I found at Big Lots for a steal

Revlon Midnight Affair

So my hunt for a darkened tealish frost comparable to the BleachBlack Dickweed color ended me up with Wet N Wild's Carribean Frost. It's not exactly the same but it's close :) If anyone knows of a better super close dupe of Dickweed please let me know por favor! :)

Another Big Lots find is Revlon Sheer Translucide, I like it because it is a peachy pink base with small golden glitters

Revlon Sheer Snowflake Pink

A cute periwinkle color. I really ought to try out more Icing colors, they have gorgeous colors!

Icing Hot Pants

Picked up another Holy Grail item, my second bottle of Glossy, I looooooove this color :)

Sally Hansen Glossy

A lil' of this and that....

So I found a great top coater and wanted to like it, but instead I love it. Poshe top coat delivers fast drying time and a super glossy finish, it goes on glossy and stays super glossy :)
$4 at Dollar General stores.

One of the things I hate about putting on face powder is that the blush won't stick to my cheeks afterward. My blush is like my finishing touch like lipstick is to most...So I found a great drugstore creme blush, too bad it's LE, when I run out of this I'll have to seek one at MAC or otherwise....

But they have this color and another peachy color, This one is very pretty and long-lasting...

NYC Creme blush Wild Berry

I traded in a MAC blush I had featured in one of my hauls a few weeks ago...I liked this one for a subtle peachy glow so I ended up getting this one...

MAC Style blush

A sweet 'Treasure'...

I saved this polish for last because I wasn't sure how to classify it, Frost? Glitter? Sheer?
It's the new Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure many have been talking about. I love it in all it's flaky fabulousness :)

Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure

It can be worn anyway you please but I love the way it looks atop of dark toned polishes...
Hidden Treasure over OPI's Suzi Skis on the Pyrenees:

On another note,
I am super excited because I just learned today that a new MAC store opened up at a nearby mall not even 5 minutes away from my home


This is great because before I'd always have to plan out my trips to the MAC store since it was so far away from where I live. Now I can enjoy the convenience of it just down the street from my home....OMG, I almost cried when I saw it, lol

That is all for my haul, let me know if you have any questions! Everyone have a great week!
