"I hit the mother load!" haul

First, I just want to apologize for the lack of posts lately. It seems like the sun is never out when I need it to be anymore and when it is out my nails are a mess, so I haven't been able to get any pics of my recent manis. My nails are naked right now so unfortunately I don't have a NOTM post.

What I do have to share with you are some amazing buys that I happened upon yesterday. My mom and I stopped by a Harmon Discount yesterday to pick up some stuff and I just wandered over the nail polish. I haven't been inside a Harmon store in months and never really looked at their nail polish stock before, and boy, have I been missing out! They had a whole slew of OPI on clearance, including 3-4 shelves full of DS's!

I was good and only bought a few:

L-R: DS Royal, DS Exclusive, DS Glamour, Have You Seen My Limo? and Stars in My Eyes

I've never seen any of these in person before so it was pretty amazing to just happen upon them. Each one was only $3.97, including the duo. Woohoo!

I hope to have some nail posts up soon.

Ta-ta for now!

NOTM: Diamond Cosmetics Amethyst & Diamonds

Hi all,

Today I put on one of the new Diamond Cosmetics that I ordered when they recently had a free shipping code. I've been interested in getting some DC's for a while now but hate paying shipping. :p

I started with the one that I was most excited about getting. Here's Amethyst & Diamonds:

^indoors natural light^

I'm wearing 3 coats of Amethyst & Diamonds, but it looked pretty good with just 2 coats. It's a light grape purple shimmer with holo microglitter throughout. It's pretty but I do kind of wish that it was a shade darker. However, that being said, the holo glitter really makes this polish simply gorgeous, especially in the sunlight. The holo glitter just sparkles and shines. I can't help staring at my nails and turning them this way and that.

Ta-ta for now!
