Collective Haul - October 2011

I meant to get this up much earlier, but I didn't have time to finish it before I had to go to work. 

I really can't believe that another month has gone. October's purchases were mainly nail varnish related with most of the damage done in the first week alone! After that week I put myself on a nail varnish ban for the month and it was quite successful. I only got two during the rest of the month - one was a No7 varnish that I got with a voucher I needed to use and the other was an Essence one which was really really cheap! Make-up wise this month I got a few things from MAC. 

L-R China Glaze It's Alive, Ghoulish Glow, Concrete Catwalk, CG in the City, Skyscraper, Midtown Magic, Urban City and Frostbite.

L-R Zoya Marley, Danni, Caitlin, Dove, Jules, Gemma

L-R OPI A Dozen Rosas, Sweetheart, Suzi Takes the Wheel, Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window and Roadhouse Blues.

No7 Blackberry, Essence Blue Addicted, A selection of image plates from Born Pretty

MAC Paintpots Genuine Treasure, Nubile, Imaginary and Pure Creation.
MAC Lipstick in Russian Red and Lipliner in Redd. 

It's only November 1st and I've already made nail varnish purchases this month! Oh dear, I have a feeling it's going to be a heavy on the purse month!

What have you been purchasing over the last month?:)


  1. SO MANY NAIL POLISHES! Oooooooeeee, I loves them! China Glaze Skyscraper is on my list.


  2. Looks like you picked up some great stuff! I got a couple of the same MAC Paint Pots that you did with the Posh Paradise collection, and I also got the 3 from the Glitter & Ice collection. October was a big haul month, I need to hopefully slow it down for November, though that might be hard because IMATS is in a couple of weeks!

  3. That's a lot of nail polishes! I'm really jealous, because I don't have very many - I'm a swimmer, so my nail polish looks gross after a day or so. :( Any advice for prolonging wear time?

  4. Amazing haul! you are lucky. I see you have Zoya Caitlin, I love the look of that colour, it has been on my wish list for a while. Unfortunately, I won't be buying much this month as I need to concerntrate on Christmas shopping now, it's getting closer...

  5. @ Sarah Yes go get Skyscraper, it's a beaut!

    @ Jenn A. I loved all the Posh Paradise paintpots! Looking forward to getting some form the Glitter & Ice collection too! I've never been to an IMATS but I'd say it's very tempting to buy a lot!

    @ Pretty Me Purple Haha it's way too may nail polishes so it is! Unfortunately I don't really have much advice in prolonging wear time other than a good topcoat. I find the OPI Nail Envy works well as a top coat as does Seche Vite. Also maybe try adding an extra layer of polish to the very tips of the nails. Good luck!

    @ Helen99 Yes I'd been wanting Zoya Caitlin for a long time, it really is every bit as beautiful as you hope it will be though!
