February Hauls

Sorry I didn't get this up sooner, I have been a little stressed out with some family business.  I meant to get more of a handle on my backlog today but since it's getting late I guess I can call that a fail LOL. 3-4 NOTDs, not to mention all the other stuff I've been putting off.  But here's what I bought in February:
 
I was at Claire's looking for the colors that are close dupes to some Mac colors ... I don't remember any of the names LOL but I didn't find them.  I did  however find too much bling for me to pass up:
 
 
Creatively named Glitter Top Coat & Gold Glitter Top Coat.
 
I somehow managed to spend enough to get a Level 3 rewards certificate at Ulta ... I didn't like any of the Level 3 rewards though, so I got a Level 1 & a Level 2:
 
 
Ulta Little Black Dress & OPI Light My Sapphire.
 
Luckily I had a 15% off coupon when I went to Sallys, because I damn near cleaned out their special displays LOL.  Mostly China Glaze and just one Orly that I couldn't resist:
 
 
Orly Royal Velvet, from the Precious collection; & the China Glaze Crackle collection (minus the black which was sold out):  Fault Line, Broken Hearted, Crushed Candy, Cracked Concrete & Lightning Bolt.  I decided to swatch them too - half the nail white, half black, except for the white which I did half pink.  The purple is not included because I actually did a full mani with that I will be showing you guys =)
 
 
Same trip, I also picked up the majority of the Tronica colors, and I scrounged the rest from a couple of other stores.  Here is the entire collection:
 

Top row:  Techno Teal, Virtual Violet, Electra Magenta, Gamer Glam, High Def, Hologram.  Bottom:  Hyper Haute, 3D Fantasy, Digital Dawn, Cyberspace, Mega Byte, & Laser Lime.  Now don't get me wrong, they're all very pretty - but this collection is nowhere near a replacement for the OMG collection.  Not even close.  I'm almost a little offended that China Glaze has the balls to call these holographic.
 
I got a lot of pics of these swatched with the OMG & Kaleidoscope collections - I'm going to make the comparisons a post all its own.  Should have that up tomorrow if I get all the pics edited.
 
Thanks for reading =)

  6. I can't wait to get the Tronica collection! My sister is taking me to Cosmoprof for my birthday next week... Teehee!

    I love holos... I just got a few Nfu Oh holos in the mail... they're more linear, where I think the Tron's are more scattered. Love them both though! I only have 2 from OMG - IDK and 2Nite. I need more!

  11. SILENCE IS LOUD - they're not dupes, but definitely close cousins =) the Claire's is more holo, and the glitter is larger than what's in Fairy Dust

  12. I bought the Techno Teal yesterday and while I like it - I was disappointed in the holo effect. I started into the nail blogs long after the OMG collection. Looks like I missed some good ones!

  13. I haven't seen the Tronica collection online yet. That's where I do all my shopping. I wish they would put it up! I want it badly. You did some nice hauling.

  14. We have not observed the actual Tronica selection on the internet however. That is exactly where I actually do just about all my personal buying. We desire they'd place it upward! I'd like this terribly. A person do a few good carrying.
