So it’s time to come clean about just how much I bought in Adelaide.
I had some amazing finds which I did not expect. But I’ll save the best for last
Their new Clean Start starter kit. I’m already so impressed with this! The face wash smells amazing and the “Bedtime for Breakouts” gel is awesome.
The lovely lady at the chemists was awesome enough to give me plenty of samples of moisturisers, scrubs and pimple cream. Love samples
Body Care Kit. This has a huge tub of salt scrub, hand cream and foot cream plus a loofah. This stuff is amazing. The scrub leaves your skin feeling amazingly soft and it is so good for your hands. When you apply the hand cream after you scrub, your hands feel absolutely beautiful and new. This wasn’t cheap, but it will last a long time and in my opinion, it is so worth it! My partners hands have never been so soft!
Jungle Brolly Hand Shield and Lucas’ Papaw Ointment.
I’ve heard great things about the Hand Shield, so I really wanted to try it. Haven’t quite got around to it yet but I will let you guys know when I do! You can never have too many tubes of Papaw Ointment. It’s my go-to cuticle balm at the moment and it’s helping my dry, angry cuticles so much. I keep one in my handbag and apply it at work every time I come back from the ladies’. The awesome thing about it is that it’s a cuticle balm and lip balm in one!
French Manicure kit! I’ve been wanting some good french mani colours for a while and have heard that these are good. The buffer and rubber cuticle stick are a bonus too! You only get 10 nail guides which is a bit of a rip off, but luckily I have plenty already.
Confetti and Bouquet
Waterlilly, Gooseberry and Mulberry
Pacific Fever, NYC Jelly Bean (I did not even notice that this wasn’t an Ulta3 until I saw the photo!!) and Hollywood
I got these at a chemist in the Central Markets. You should have heard my squeal when I noticed the bin
Here’s a close up of Waterlilly:
Isn’t it a stunner? I don’t have one like this in my collection so I’m super excited to try it!
Such a beautiful, unique colour. I got this on sale at Target for $5.86!!!
I’ll Be Frank, Silver Screen and Paris Night.
How gorgeous are these!? I’ll Be Frank is totally unique; look at the gorgeous gold shimmer! The Silver Screen is really a very light bluey silver and is stunning. I cannot wait to try these!
They were three for $19 at Price Attack, or $7.95 each. Stunning! Mum told me to check these out and I am so glad I did!
And now, last but certainly not least:
China Glaze OMG/Kaleidescope Collections
DV8, 2NITE x2 (although one looks more purple than the other and that’s not just in the photo?! I’m going to have to try them both!), QT and Kaleidescope Him Out.
These were such a random, amazing find. My partner was getting his hair cut and I was wandering around the little shopping centre that his hairdressers are in. I spotted this little Asian nail salon and contemplated going in and though “nah, can’t be bothered” but then something propelled my lil legs towards the store and I found myself looking at a cabinet of tester China Glazes. I spotted the holos straight away, freaked out and promptly asked one of the shop assistants if they sold the polishes. The answer: YES! I initially just bought the 2NITE and Kaleidescope Him Out but when I showed them to my partner he asked if I had enquired if they had any more stock. Bless his heart! We raced back to the nail salon and I spotted the other colours that I had missed. They only had one double (the 2NITE) but I scored the DV8 and QT as well. I am sooooo excited I have been wanting these for SO LONG!
I’m going to try out both 2NITEs and if they are the same, sell one off. But I have no idea how much to sell it for? Any ideas?
After my China Glaze buys, I declared myself on a no buy until I had tried most of my untrieds.
That lasted until the next night when I went to Woolworths up here where I live and spotted the brand new bin of NYC polishes for $2 each.
I agonised over whether to buy any and my partner tormented me by suggesting to buy some of the colours. Finally my lovely, amazing, wonderful partner gave me $10 and told me to go nuts. He offered $20 but I couldn’t find that many colours I liked.
I ended up with these babies:
Red Slippers (looks like a Ruby Pumps wannabe but has gold glitter), Angel (is not just straight white, has a gorgeous pearly glitter through it), Lemon, Peachy Keen and Lavender.
Aaaand now I think I’m done buying for a while. I currently have 46 untried nail polishes. 46!!!!!! One of those polishes in the photo below is the top coat for the french manicure set I mentioned above, so it doesn’t count!
So there you have it, my Adelaide haul. I did buy a few other things like shoes, socks and undies, but nothing as exciting as these finds!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my mad shopping frenzy!!
