haul - mostly nail polish

Ok, so I've bought way too many nail polish in the past week, thats me done for a long time now (i think.) I just can't seem to get storage for them all ! Some of these polishes were valentines days fault (not mine !) so i deserve a little slack.. right?

Rimmel Lipsticks (L-R) Crush and Dreamer
Ive been trying to expand my lipstick collection for a few weeks now, and I've taken fancy to nude lipsticks, as i have very little! Crush is more of a nude with a hint of coral, whereas Dreamer is a real girly sugar pink - i really can't wait to wear these !

This is the China Glaze wedding collection. Im not married, nor am i engaged, but i do love weddings, and a good love story ! I also loved the delicate sheer pastels, and i figured why not get the whole set rather than just one?
(L-R) Hope Chest, Exceptionally Gifted, Mr and Mrs, Tie The Knot, Pop the Question

I love Rimmel polishes, and their fairly priced, and I'm definitely going to get some more!
(L-R) Promiscuous, Pink Punk, Cashmere, Sunny Side, Jungle Princess

This picture isn't great but its late and after a good few attempts this is the best i could do!
MUA eyelid primer - I'm really interested in this as i currently use Lemonaid by Benefit, and if this is just as good, ill definitely be converting!
Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara - I've seen this on pretty much everyones blog, so you'll know it was free from Elle magazine. I will swatch this in the next few days 

Nicole by O.P.I in My Lifesaver (from the Justin Bieber collection) This is a dupe for China Glaze's 'For Audrey'. The best way to describe this colour is Tiffany blue!
Collection 2000 in Lemon Soda - i saw this and i don't have a pastel yellow, and at £1.79 i didn't see the harm!

And now the grande finale. This was all because of valentines day. The shade is Significant Other Colour. I basically wanted a nail polish to wear for when me and Lewis celebrated valentines day, and i wanted the name to be appropriate. I looked at all different brands, and saw many i liked, but i had dupes of them, and i didn't know if i could justify spending money on something just because of what it was called. When i saw this i was sold - i don't have a colour anything like it, and it just seemed perfect, different to the typical red or pink you would expect for valentines. This colour is so nice, i walked through the door to find my mum painting her nails with it, before i even had chance myself.

So that was quite a big hall, thanks for getting to the end ! I am going to chill out on the nail varnish obsession, even the postman is using phrases like 'she's at it again' 'heres yet another parcel' . Its wrong i know!

Have you tried any of these polishes?
