Salon swap- original MPJ & a haul

I have lots of stuff to post today! Bleach Black, Dick Weed mani pictures will be in the next post.
Anyway! Did I mention that the new Salon I've been going to has the original OPI MPJ?
The last time I was there, I tried to buy the used bottle at full price, but they said "no".
Today, I walked in there armed with more leverage-" My new and unused bottle of  MPJ and $8.51 for your old, used for 2 manis bottle?"
Haha! They said "Yes"! I think I made a great deal! I got rid of a polish I'd never wear for the one I would.
I also purchased a bottle of OPI Russian Navy (new). Since Angel was running an hour late, I decided to go polish shopping at Claire's, Rue 21 (For a back-ups of Love Bites- Purple Haze, et al) & to Sally's.

At Claire's I picked up; Green Matte, Dream Catcher, Chunky Blue (jelly w/glitter) & Chunky Purple (jelly w/glitter).
Rue 21; All Love Bites- Purple Haze, Blue Twilight, Hot Pink w/pearl shimmer, Orchid w/pink shimmer, & #69 magenta jelly w/fuschia & red glitter.
Sally's; Orly- Fantasea, CG- Turned Up Turquoise, CG, Dorothy Who?, Nina Ultra Pro- Viva La Velvet, Sally Girl- Gold glitter(?)...
a bag of orange sticks, banana files, Instant Artificials (for my daughter), Polish thinner, & a gray stone stick in a tube (for cleaning the undersides of my nails).
nail swatches- flash

No flash

Claire's Green Matte- 1/2 with SV

I had to shore-up the polish rack I built for my mani station. The middle shelves were bowing around the mounting brackets. Several shelves are loaded 2 deep with polish, and I had to add some shelves and baskets on the other wall.

*gasp* the holo version of MPJ... I wish they would still sell them, I hate that Opi did that (they should have at least  re-named the newer, "bad" Version)

nihrida said...

WOW! Can I come play at your house? It looks like a artistic (walls, courtains...). I love it! And that's a great haul! Congrats on your new OPI. =)

EvilAngel said...

OK that's it mani Party at Lisa's house!

If I had the time to "show you around", I'd so bring you to the US! You would love my studio in *is* fairyland...there is glitter on my walls! 8-)
I got stuff for you with this haul!!!

ainos2 said...

Heeeey...that would be a lot of fun! Maybe some day~
Come to think of it, If I kept that event in the front of my mind, perhaps I would find the ambition to finish all of the open home improvement diys I have still open!

ainos2 said...

Thank you dear! Im afraid that my collection pales in comparison to other np freaks. Mine just happens to look impressive because it'sall visible/on display.
No hiding in Helmers for me....
Honestly, I get more pleasure *looking* at all the colors than the actual wearing of them. =-O

ainos2 said...

The girl at the desk didn't mind at all that the new version I presented her was a dud. All she cared about was having a MPJ to offer clients.

Colette said...

Oh, the original MPJ is so pretty =)  I wish I'd just happen to stumble across a bottle, that would be worth breaking my no-buy LOL.  I wish I had room to display all my (846) bottles, yours make an awesome rainbow!

ainos2 said...

Thanks Colette! Would you believe that I had under a dozen nail polishes a year ago---*and* they were mostly all in the black/grey family!?
Wow- 846 bottles!!!

Janet said...

You have a gorgeous collection!

OMG, your nail polish rack is AMAZING!!  I especially love how your polishes are arranged in rainbow order.

MinderMutsig (Kirsten) said...

I love your rack! lol

Great deal on MPJ, congrats!

Hello Megan-(is this your rl name?).
Thank you. I love looking at my collection while sitting in my chair and doing my nails.
It seems that the majority of collectors organize and colorize by brand arrangement.
Me- I don't care about brands as much as I do color.

ainos2 said...

Thank you Kirsten!
Funny how "we" all know that I got the better deal in that swap! :-D

ainos2 said...

Hi Janet!  Thank you!
Good to see another Aromaleigh fan!

:o)  That Guest was me!  I couldn't figure out how to post with my name.

Естественно, всегда нужно, чтобы под рукой была богатая видео-библиотека с любимыми фильмами, однако не всегда в торговых точках можно приобрести то, что хочется увидеть с близкими людьми. Так почему бы тогда не воспользоваться Сетью, благодаря которому пользователи без труда найдут даже самый специализированный фильм и даже, в том числе, на любом языке.

Таким образом, вам требуется иметь под рукой только две вещи – это любой гаджет, включая даже смартфон, Всемирная паутина и все – можно начинать просмотр.

Главное отличие подобных порталов в том, что фильмы там представлены разные, самых разных жанров, так что определиться среди них вы сможете без труда, важно лишь понять, что именно хочется посмотреть сегодня. Конечно, нужно сказать, что выбирать такие порталы нужно, исходя из быстроты загрузки представленных на нем фильмов, поскольку, согласитесь, конечно, смотреть в высоком качестве и, как минимум, с отличным звуком.

На нашем портале вы легко сможете легко найти для себя то, что хотите изучить, не платя никаких материальных средств, не отправляя смс и без прохождения регистрации, то есть, максимально быстро. А качество кино – прекрасное, даже если смотреть на форматном экране.
