Nail polish haul – the spending ban is over!

by on May 28, 2017 · 16 commentsIf you follow me on Twitter you may have seen me tweet about wanting a cat. Heaven knows Ms. Red of Ms. Red’s Beauty Blog has taken the brunt of my bemoaning of not having a feline friend. I have even resulted in having her Twitpic me pictures of her beloved crabby tabby Tabitha. This is my neighbour’s cat Jelly Bean who is a right little madam. She only wants attention on her terms otherwise I get ignored. However while I was outside yesterday she took an interest in what I was taking pictures of.Here are the first of my little treats to celebrate the end of the spending ban and look ma, not a scrub in sight! I still have too many to review to be fair so really it’s not that impressive that I haven’t bought any. As you can see I’ve gone a bit cuckoo for colour, some are to try for my wedding day nails and the pinks well what can I say? I know my mom will be shocked with this sudden turn of girliness – I don’t know what’s happening!As for the gorgeous golden tabby with the bad cattitude, I had to rescue my new treasures before she knocked them down off the wall. Well at least she has good taste!So what do you think of my haulage ladies?

    That cat is so cute.
    The nail varnishes aren’t bad either.

    In fact they are beautiful.
    I want to steal them…and the cat.

    Great haul… Love the colors! Is that Papaya Punch? I’ve been wanting to pick that up.

    Oooh I love all the pink shades!! Lovely kitty too, I think you should get one I have 3 of them!

    I thought you would go mental once the ban had been lifted! Gorgeous. Can’t wait to see them on you. Totally love the turquoise one x

    I love all these nail polishes, they all look nice ! And the cat is lovely, you’re lucky that you can photograph stuff with a cat next to you, my kitten Guimauve would run into everything !!!
    I am going to take pics for my blog but I will close the door so that she can’t come

    What beauties! I’m especially intrigued by the turquoise nearest in the picture, which one is that?
    Love the kitty! I couldn’t imagine life without a cat. How unusual for a female to be ginger! x

    Can’t beat bright colours and polishes for an ‘end of ban’ haul! Jelly Bean looks exactly like the cat we had when I was little, Mojo! I love cats, we live on a busy road now, though, so like you I have no feline friends :’(

    @Tiff – I want to steal the cat too! I better put my polishes under lock and key just in case x
    @Jen – Yes it is Papaya Punch I might test that one first!
    @Vonnie – Yes it is turned up turquoise, I figure it would make a great pedi too!
    @Jade – Thank you it’s your fault the girliness is going on!
    @Kizzy – The polish or the cat or both he he x
    @Nic’s Notebook – I’m working on the cat situation, I’m using this post as a petition to Jamie as proof I need one to be a good blogger!
    @Leanne – I didn’t think I’d go crazy for nail polish but I’m turning really girl lately it’s scary!
    @Pinkty – Well she nearly knocked everything over she was on the higher bit of the wall and I grabbed my stuff just in time. She likes to sneak up on people!
    @TNB – The turq is lovely yes, It’s turned up turquoise to be precise. We thought she was a boy for the longest time because to ginger but I had the owners confirm she is a girl and she’s quite bitchy at times so it makes sense!
    @Lily – that is one of the reasons why I’m worried about having a cat, we live in a built up area but the other cats around here seem to be okay. Maybe I should just foster cats instead!

    Thanks for your approval ladies, it means a lot to me being a novice with nail polish!

    You don’t do things by halves do you?! Great haul, I love the polishes all lined up like that together! Looking forward for some notd posts as well. Lovely cat as well! x

    Hehe, you can have all the twit pics of Tabs you want, ,-)

    LOVE those nail polishes, and LOVE the cat, think anybody would notice if I snuck him home with me?

    @TBB – Yes they do look pretty don’t they? I need to take more photos outside, my neighbours have a cute little garden that would look good in photos.
    @SR – Thank you I always love photos of Tabitha, I think Jelly Bean’s owners know I’m lemming for their cat so they might get suspicious if she went missing!!

    Thanks for your approval girlies! xoxo

    Nice haul! I can’t wait to see all the pinks you’ve got. Funny enough, despite all these polishes, it’s the gorgeous gluffy cat which stole the show

    Bonjour Liloo – Yes I’m inclined to agree that as lovely as the nail polishes are Jelly Bean is the real star and she knows it!
