London Haul Post + pictures! (pic heavy!)

I want to say thanks to everyone who wrote the guest posts for my  blog while I was away, I think they turned out quite awesome, and I love the way the week went on my blog! I had so much fun in London, and I can't wait to go back.  

As I promised before I left I have a haul post for you today! These are all of the polishes I got while I was in London, and what was waiting at home from me as nail mail when I returned. :)

 First up, the Models Own! In the box are my Beetle Juice polishes, the only one I am missing now is emerald black and I will have the complete collection!  And below the box are 2 polishes from the icecream sundae collection, a red polish called red alert, and Disco Candy from the hed kandi collection. If you want specific names of the others, just ask in the comments and I'll reply! <3

 My boyfriend took me to Westfield London to go polish shopping, which is in Shepherds Bush, and while there I saw a GIGANTIC bottle of polish!  Here is a photo for you guys:

And I managed to stumble upon some Max Factor Fantasy Fire!

These are some randoms I got, Accessorize Pink Spice and Aztec, Barry M Cobalt Blue and Croc Effects, GOSH Purple Heart and Gasoline, and 2True Shade 6.  I think some of these may  go into a giveaway which I plan to hold soon. ;)

 These were a happy accidental finding.  We were walking down the streets of bath and I saw a makeup store that just looked pretty random, and when I looked into the door, there was an entire rack of polish, so I had to check them out. I didn't know how the quality was on them so I took a gamble, but when I tried them on, I was not disappointed!  The brand is Star Gazer , but these polishes don't have names,  only numbers, which is a bit disappointing, but I guess I will have to just give them names so I can remember them.

This was the most expensive polish I purchased on my trip, Make Up Store Greta. An amazing linear holographic.

And my favorite find of all! Kiko! I also purchased these from Westfield London, and they were on sale! They were only 1.50 each.  I grabbed up quite a lot of these colors!

Woo! That wraps up the polishes I purchased on my trip to London.  When I returned home, I found Essie Stroke of Brilliance waiting for me, from Klout Perks. I am super excited about this one! I already have a mani to post with it! 

Also waiting for me was China Glaze Exotic Encounters which I got from Jill at Glisten and Glow!

And 2 bottles of HK Girl! Also from Jill at Glisten and Glow.

Overall, I think I have had a great few weeks of polish shopping.
