Just some essentials...and a HUGE birthday haul!

My hands are not as soft, smooth, or cuticle tear free as I'd like them to be. So, I have made it my mission to pamper and care for my hands as much as possible. To do that, I picked up some awesome tools recently. Bath and Body Works had a sale going on plus I had some coupons so I grabbed this wonderful sugar scrub and the paraffin lotion (3/$10) they suggest to go along with it. Even after the first use, my hands were immediately softer and had a more even look to them. Add on my recent purchase of Sally Hansen Green Tea cuticle oil and Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Butter, and my nails and hands are feeling much healthier. I still have a ways to go, but it's a start. OH - and I must recommend everyone give that Revlon buffer a shot - it's the bee's knees! My nails look like they have a clear coat on even when they are completely naked!

Most of the purchases I have been able to make recently have been due to recent birthday monies I received, but this next haul was just a gift in itself (not pictured: MASH brush set, acrylics, and Fauxnad (BM) stamping supplies)!

The polishes are:

Nubar - Black Polka Dot
Nubar - White Polka Dot
Nubar - Reclaim (New favorite!)
Nubar - 2010
Milani - Gems

China Glaze - Westside Warrior
China Glaze - Matte Magic (Works AMAZINGLY)
ORLY - Androgynie

Kleancolor - Black Hole
Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black
Deborah Lippmann - Across the Universe

There will be a couple more haul posts, but I want to show off a few of these beauties first! Pretty sure I'm already addicted to stamping too, so I hope to have lots of that for the near future! Thanks for reading :)
