We Be Haulin' - April Haul Post

Things were really good... and then they went very bad. That is how I would describe my purchasing in April. I started off doing very well. I would troll for polish online (as you do) but wouldn't pull the trigger and buy anything. But certain polish brands are like gateway drugs - once you buy one the floodgates open and all hell breaks loose.  This month's gateway polish brand? Dance Legend. var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-41312601-1']); _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'valiantlyvarnished.com']); _gaq.push(['_setAllowLinker', true]); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

(function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

It really all started with a little polish called Dance Legend Final Fantasy...I had spied this polish on various blogs and told myself "You don't want it... really..." and when I would mildly entertain the idea of buying it it would be sold out. Until one day I was again trolling for polish (some people window shop - I troll for polish) and came across it on Color4nails. In stock. And so I did what any normal girl would do and immediately purchased it. I also threw Penelope Luz Wizard into my cart because that was on my wish list and I wanted to at least feel like I was making a well thought out responsible purchase. They arrived the same day as Lynnderella Very Pretty Vampire, which I snagged from a FB pal's sale. It was a good polish day...

Once the fire was lit it burned... Picked up two of my Lacquer Lust wish list polishes, Pink Tourmaline and Topaz.

...and burned... A-England Dragon and She Walks In Beauty...

and burned... picked all of these up in various blog sales. Clockwise: Smitten Polish Cocoa & Cardis, Scofflaw Varnish Little Trees, Rainbow Honey Kitsune, Daring Digits Call Me (I had a mini of this and really wanted a full-sized bottle) and Scofflaw Ruff Tuff Creampuff. Again in my defense- these were all on my wish list.

But by this point the fire was a brush fire and I went back to the polish brand that started it

Dance Legend Smoky Collection
Pine Bark
Cozy Sweater
Grey Britain

Dance Legend Sahara Crystal
Red Heat
Ground Around

These are all still on their way. I will post pics in May's haul post!

I also got my April Birchbox. I was pleasantly surprised by this box. After two months of disappointing boxes it was fun to have one where I like and will use everything in it.

So...18 bottles...when I was originally only planning on buying maybe 5 or 6 for the entire month. Polish walk of shame happening right over here folks!
