Holiday Haul

Supposedly, I was on a no buy for a month... Well, as you will see in a few seconds, it was impossible....

Ok, here we go... 


Essence Me & My Ice Cream collection... How could I resist??? I managed to skip one polish though... 

The polishes are Always on my mint, Ben&Cherries, and Ice ice baby... 

I also bought the blush and the highlighter balls... And found another eye shadow palette that I missed....


As usual, my daughter got all the lip balms of the collection... ;)


Then I saw the NYC display and since I love its polishes, I decided to give the lipsticks a try... The long lasting one is Forever Fuschia...


On the left we have Sugar Plum and on the right Purple Crush...


Moving on to other polish!!!

Maybelline Urban Turquoise and Rimmel Salon Pro Navy Seal...

The one in the middle is Golden Rose Holiday 70, white texture with flakie like glitter....

And the Golden Rose rich colors, from left to right; 38, 26, 12, 47, 15 and 49...


Here is the textured GR up close....


Finally, a lemming... Alix Avien made a 24 Carat Gold Leaf Topcoat with black polish... I was looking for it everywhere... Finally found it!!!! The bottles are extremely small, 5ml each. They cost 13TL, aprox 7$.... 


Here's the achivement of the day... Looks like Zoya is in Turkey... And I am like the last person to find out about this!

Anyway, I've been asking around in Istanbul where to find this but I had no luck... Untill today!!!!

I had really high hopes before entering the store but unfortunately, they only brought old collections... There were like 20 polishes on the rack and most of them were old collections. I only saw a few from the lovlely collection and grabbed this one, Neely, a mint creme...

And boy, they cost too much!!! 18$ for a Zoya!!! I also saw the Zoya Remove but did not buy it! Yay for me!!!

I know it has been a long post but I want to finish with a pedi I did using my Golden Roses... Remember, I don't have my regular tools here. And the sand is really harsh on my feet! 

And I'm writing this post on my phone so you won't be seeing my regular watermark... ;)


So, what do you think about my haul??? Do you think I need theraphy???

  1. I got two polishes and the blush from the Me and my Ice Cream collection, I couldn't find the shimmer pearls anywhere :( I was also considering getting the Alix Avien golden polish, but I decided I have to see some swatches first, the price was a bit too high :)

    and I didn't know you can get Zoya in Turkey - where?!

    1. First of all I got all these from Bodrum... ;) apperantly Zoya's are sold in Turkey for a few months, but I did not see any in Istanbul. I'll kerp searching... ;) alix Aviens are pricy but nice. Nothing like Zoya's top coat, but ok.... And I'm totally surprised to find out that you live in Istanbul... ;)

  2. haha yes, I've been living in Istanbul for the past 3 years :)

    I will probably try the golden top coat then, it sounds so lovely, hopefully it looks nice too ;) and Zoya... if it's so expensive here I will try to find it at the airport or maybe order it online, but it would be nice to at least see them in person ;)
