Sephora and Bloom.com Haul

So I bought some more nail polish on Sephora.  I CAN'T HELP IT!!  I love Sephora OPI!  And since I can't get it anywhere but there, I HAVE to!  So, I bought $OPI Spark-tacular Top Coat and $OPI Flurry Up Top Coat. Both are a glitter polish top coat.  Spark-tacular has much more coverage in one coat, while Flurry Up goes on more sparsely.  I also saw that NARS Pokerface was on sale for $5, so I bought it too!  Oddly, it resembles several of my lavenders, but is not a complete duplicate.

 There is a nail art blogger to blame for my introduction to Bloom!  I LOVE that place!  They give free samples, and not small stupid samples, but nice quality ones!  They have good deals, and they are so personable!  I bought polish I have never tried before:  Pop Beauty in Golden Metal and Priti Polish in Etoile Violet.
Pop Beauty went on practically opaque in ONE coat and oh so smooth! Priti was smooth and took two coats.  I have a few duplicates of the Etoile Violet.  Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Buffy the Violet Slayer is an EXACT dupe and Zoya matte Zavita would be a dupe if you put a top coat on it. Oh well! I must love Royal Purple!

I also bought two Essie polishes: Smooth Sailing and Carry On. Like all Essie polishes, they went on like a dream and both were almost opaque in one coat.  Smooth Sailing has tiny blue micro glitters in it. Carry On is a super duper dark burgundy red. It is way to dark for me. I am not a burgundy person.
I also bought two more Zoyas!   Dove and Juicy.  This picture just downright sucks,  It doesn't show the colors at all. Dove is a very pale grey. Juicy is a super bright pink.  Both went on my nail wheel in two coats, and Juicy may have needed a third. I have 17 pink polishes and nine of them are super bright pinks just like Juicy. Haha.  As a matter of fact, six of them can barely be distinguished one from the other!  I guess my eye is attracted to those loud pinks!

I've been stopping myself from going in to my local Sephora and checking out their polish. I imagine it would be dangerous for my budget.

Super dangerous! The closest Sephora to me is over an hour away, but unfortunately Spehora.com is only seconds away. FYI: The OPI's at Sephora are only sold at Sephora. :o)
