Christian Louboutin Beauté Formula X

Las Vegas Nail Polish Haul

Nothing To Disclose
Last week I showed you all the mani I wore in Las Vegas. Today I've got the nail polish I bought when I was there.

I only purchased a total of nine bottles while I was there, but boy oh boy are they pretty. And yes, I did buy a Christian Louboutin Beauté lacquer!

Let's start with Island Girl. Why? Because it was the brand I was the most excited about. Why was I the most excited about it? Because it's only available in Hawaii and Las Vegas. You know what they say exclusivity(?). *Kanye shrug* Oh well.

Hawaiian Sun | Island Paradise | Island Sunset | Island Heat | Maui Magic

Up now are three Formula-X  polishes I bought at a Sephora located right on the Las Vegas Strip near to the Venetian.

 Fluorescent | Sci-Fi | Free Fall

And last but not least, Christain Louboutin Beauté Lova

After my last encounter with a high-end luxury nail polish *cough* Tom Ford African Violet *cough* I decided that spending--what I see as--an exorbitant amount of cash on one polish just wasn't worth it. In short, African Violet was a nice color but the formula was thin and took about four coats to become opaque and non-streaky.
Anyway, while standing in front of the huge display at Sephora I felt like I just had to have one. I hope when I get the chance to use it, it somehow makes up for the $50 I drop on it.

I'm shocked I didn't buy more nail polish, but while I was away my Zoya promo order arrived! Maybe I'll post it at a later date.

What's the largest nail polish haul you've ever come back with on vacation? Buy any high-end lacquers and were disappointed after the fact? Let's chat in the comments!
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.

    These all look amazing!!!

  2. ThankQ! I don't post hauls too often but this post was a requirement lol.

  3. I wish I knew about Island Girl when I visited Vegas last summer! I'll keep an eye out next time I go for sure.

  4. You definitely should. They had them in every ABC Store I went to.

  5. Fun haul! I was going to pick up island Girl when I was in Hawaii last month, but it ended up falling off my to do list. Hopefully I have more luck when/if I end up in Vegas! LOL!

  6. These look awesome! I've always wanted some Island Girl Polishes, but I live in Toronto:(. Maybe one day I'll go to Las Vegas.

  7. Those Island girl polishes!!! my such beauties.
    AND I want a CL polish!! Someday soon I hope.
    Gorgeous Vegas haul lady!

  8. I'm sure whatever you did in Hawaii Was waaayyyy more fun than buying nail polish! LOL
    But if/when you end up in Vegas they're in every ABC Store.

  9. If you don't go to Vegas and know someone that is, have them buy some and bring them back for you.

    Also, I haven't checked for myself but, you could also try ebay.

  10. I swore up and down I wouldn't ever spend $50 on nail polish.
    And then I was standing in front of the entire display and I couldn't help myself. #nowillpower LOL

  11. That's a good idea hopefully someone decides they need to take a trip there soon lol. Thanks!

  12. SO agree on TF African Violet. If you want a pretty dead on dupe, check out Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang. Much easier to work with and still available on ebay for cheap. Island Girl! what fun! love the ones I have, from the ABC stores in Hawaii. can't wait to see your CL and Island Girl swatches.

  13. Thanks for the heads up CSM cherry cherry bang bang! African Violet is nice color wise but it's such a disappointment considering the price point.
