OPI Haul!!

This weekend's included!
Left to right, front: OPI Ski Teal We Drop, Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Seche Vite, Meep Meep Meep, and Cuckoo For This Color. Back: Animal-istic, Alpine Snow, Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, and Excuse Moi! Very back: Spookettes set and Season Nails set.
Ski, Cuckoo, Alpine, and Lucerne are all backups I got because my bottles are running low...ditto for SV. Spookettes...I have no idea why, but I just HAD to get it! I had to get the Season Nails set too because I'd never seen it before, more on that set in a minute. The other 4 full size bottles are from the new Holiday Muppets collection!! So happy I found's some closer pictures:


Fresh Frog of Bel Air.

Excuse Moi!

 Meep Meep Meep...with a closer pic to show the shimmer.

I found the glitters at my Trade Secret (they didn't have the shimmers). All the bottles of Rainbow Connection and Gone Gonzo were out, but I didn't really want either of those anyway...I knew I had to get Excuse Moi because it's just totally unique and gorgeous, and then for the rest of the glitters...well, I'm not really a huge fan of the style of the glitters in this collection, but I figured I'd try one just to see how I like them. Fresh Frog seemed like the most unique shade of glitter, so, that's how I ended up with that one.
Then, I felt the need to check out the JCPenney salon, just in case...well, the had the glitters AND the shimmers, plus the mini set, PLUS everything in store was 15% off...just my luck, haha. So I figured I'd just get 2 of the shimmers. Animal-istic and Meep Meep Meep looked pretty, so! That was going to be all, but then I spotted this:

I've never seen or heard of this set before, so obviously I had to buy it! My receipt said this is a JCPenney holiday exclusive, so I guess it must be? The polishes in the set are Under The Tree...All For Me?, Happy Holi-grays!, Red-y For My Prezzie, and a mini bottle of RapiDry. (I remember when that used to be my go-to topcoat, back in the days before I discovered Seche Vite...ahh, memories!) The colors aren't anything spectacular; a light purple shimmer, a grey creme that I've found is basically a dupe for Sephora by OPI Frankly I Don't Give A-Dam, and a cherry red creme. Still, I thought it was cute, and I'm a sucker for minis!

So I have pics of some of these coming up soon...I'm soo excited about my Muppets polishes! I didn't think I'd like the shimmers that much, but I've used one of them and all I can say is wow! Now I wish I had picked up more...haha!

Also, this is completely unrelated to polish but I also bought these and they're my new obsession! Take a gander at this!

I'm completely addicted to Victoria's Secret Pink yoga pants, but these take it to a whole new level...I mean look at them! They don't look like much at first, just silver letters, but in sunlight (or artificial light)...BAM! They're, like, holo-y! Kaleidoscopic! I don't know how to explain it, but they're pretty glorious! Anyways...

Sincerely, Cat
