Today's Southern Orlando Haul

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 6/23/2011 07:57:00 PM
I woke up today feeling pretty yucky. I had a 'recovery day' scheduled from running, so I pushed myself into that. I had a feeling of a fever but I did my 'pretend' jump rope workout anyway. (I jump rope but don't have a real rope to use; just go through the movements with my arms.) I had a work project scheduled early this morning, it was already 80 degrees before 10 AM, but I went and did it anyway. I wanted to come home and be inside where it is cool. However,  I went to Ulta (it really is on the way home) and made sure I used my $9 in points and my $3.50 off $10 coupon today.

Even then, I went to a large mall do finish up more work so I wouldn't have to do it tomorrow. But I stopped in Forever 21 anyway and found some polish.

Semi-soothing, here are the goods...
 Sparkle babies. From left on: Currant, Silver and Coral.

But you have to check them out up close to get a good looky...
Currant. I merlot shade with red and gold glitter.


Silver. It is a much lighter shade of silver IRL, with iridescent micro-glitter.

Coral. A pinkish coral shade with red and fuchsia micro-glitter. This one might be a jelly. I'm not sure yet.

BUT WAIT!!!!! THERE'S MORE!!!!!!


Early July 4th sparklers! From the left on: Purple/Silver, Green/Clear and Red/Black/Silver. Oh, those names got me excited!!! *rolls eyes, one way then back the other*

 Silver/Purple. The base is clear with chunks of silver and a red-purple hexagon glitter.


Green/Clear. A clear base with chunky leaf green and silver hexagon glitter.


Red/Black/Silver. Again, a clear base with chunks of very red, black and silver hexagon glitter.

Any one of these three hexy glitters could make some interesting nail 'sammich' manicures.  I'm ready to experiment!

I did stop by CVS in the mall to check to see if I could find anything new. I found the new Limited Edition NYC polishes...

The coupons at the front expired on 6/1/11. Not nice. But one polish did come home with me (where at least 2 unexpired NYC coupons are)...


This is 'Gramercy Glitz.' It's a pink, almost totally clear, base with tons of baby girl pink and iridescent micro-glitter. Not exactly a new shade but the kind I tend to gravitate to.

I'm a chick from the Midwest, I had to look this one up: Gramercy Park (/ˌgræmᵊrsi ˈpɑːrk/) is a small, fenced-in private park in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, United States.
It looks lovely. I'd like to visit it. Some day. When I go to New York. Where my hubs is from. NYC, where he got his Masters. Yea...some day.


See any shades that tickle your fancy?

Oi! Do you know how many of those hex ones they have? I'm trying not to get into these Love & Beauty ones cause knowing me, I'd want to get every single shade available and I don't have a list of all the shades they have!

Well. That does it. I have to brave a trip in to Forever 21. Thanks for that. LOL Hope you're feeling better!

I love those glitters! But you're right about the names! How boring!
By the way, I LOVE the picture of you and Libby that is on your Blogger profile! Beautiful!

@jbrobeck Don'tcha just love 'em? I want more!

@kittypolishnbags I dug through 2 different checkout stands' worth and that's all they had. But, I do know where 2 other stores are. hee hee
I'll surely report back if I find any more.

@KarenD I didn't think they were saying just 'Kimberly'. ;P

@Peach Is that coral calling your toes? LOL

@Megan I feel better the next day, thank you. OK, but if you get addicted to going to Forever 21,...well...I guess you WILL have to blame me! ;)

@Never Enough Nails Thank you, sweets! That means so much to me.
