Haul...what more is there to say!

So yeah, as you all can see I went a tad wild with polish hauling, but I had good reason, I promise!  LOL, I would seriously justify this very unjustified haul, with any reason that would make it make sense (Still following me there? I think I confused myself for a sec).  Anyhow, after several weeks my Sally's finally got Up, Up, & Away and apparently I'm the only person in my time that knew about it, lol.  They had one display with pretty much one color of each shade in the collection and I grabbed the only one of each of the colors I'd been eyeing. Thanks to GildedAngel of Naive Nails, who mentioned via Twitter that her Sally's had gotten them in.  I kept that in mind all week and kept a mental note to drop my local Sally's today.

I'd picked up three shades from Ulta last week, you can see them in my Ulta Haul post, but I knew I'd probably return them if my Sally's got them in.  They were $6.50 @ Ulta and $3.50 at Sally's, and I knew I wanted more than just three colors, but wasn't willing to shell out $40 for all the colors I wanted.  I had a Beauty Rewards coupon from Sally's, plus three $1 off coupons for ChG polishes, so I took full advantage of my deals.  I am a self-proclaimed recessionista, and even if we weren't in a recession I still low ball shop...what can I say.  Anyhow, before I ramble on and on I included pics below on my haul and since I just did a haul, I won't be doing one for this haul.  This is why I'm going into a little more detail than I usually do in my haul blog posts.  I also swatched all but 3 colors on my nails (ran out of fingers,lol!), but all the polishes I got are included in the pics below.

L-R:  All China Glaze - Heli-yum, High Hopes, Grape Pop, Flyin High, Four Leaf Clover

L-R: Claire's Kelly Green, Claire's True Blue, OPI Jade Is The New Black, OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui, OPI Meet Me On The Star Ferry

Claire's Kelly Green and True Blue. I forgot about these to in the first pic I took w/ all of the polishes I got today, so I decided to include them here.

No worries, I will be doing full swatches and reviews on all the polishes and products (especially the Orly kit) very soon.  I just wanted to throw up a a quick compilation of everything, and I was super excited to see what each color really looked like too!

Edit:  I realized that Ulta didn't give me my free gift with my OPI purchase, had to go back there today(2/28) and get it.  I will include a pic of it some time later, as well as swatches.
