U.S. Haul Part 1 - Mainstreams (OPI, China Glaze etc)

Hello my lovelies! I hope you're all having a good weekend. I've finally decided to sit down and haul some of my U.S. goodies for you! I have 70+ bottles of polish in my suitcase - way too many to try and squeeze into one post. I've decided to split into mainstream and indie polishes, and then by brand. Today I'm showing you the all of the mainstream polishes I came back with. I ended up with 25 full size bottles and 1 mini. Read on for names and pictures of each polish!

U.S. Nail Polish Haul - Mainstreams @acertainbeccaa

The majority of my mainstream haul consists of China Glaze and OPI, so I will start with them first. There's a lot of polish to get through so I'll try and keep it short!

China Glaze
(All from Head2ToeBeauty)

L-R: 'Ugly Sweater Party' and 'Break The Ice' 

These are both from the Cheers Collection (Christmas 2015). I went for a few of the more unique polishes. 

L-R: 'Glow With The Flow', 'Point Me To The Party' and 'Can I Get An Untz Untz' 

All three are from the Electric Nights Collection (Summer 2015). I wanted these when the collection first released, but they were out of stock.

L-R: 'Four Leaf Clover' and 'Strawberry Fields'

I would suggest googling swatches for an accurate colour of Four Leaf Clover - it pictures very blue but is definitely much greener. I've wanted Strawberry Fields since LindsayDoesNails featured it in her Top 10 China Glaze's video here.

('ChicaGo Get A Manicure' from Head2ToeBeauty, the rest from CosmoProf)

L-R: 'Look At My Bow!' and 'Super Cute In Pink' from the Hello Kitty collection, 'Gargantuan Green Grape', 'Gelato On My Mind', 'A Grape Fit!' and 'ChicaGo Get A Manicure'. 

I did want a couple of the other Hello Kitty polishes, but a fair few were already sold out.

L-R: 'I'll Tinsel You In', 'On Pinks & Needles', 'Pineapples Have Peelings Too', 'Peace & Love & OPI' and 'Today I Accomplished Zero'. 

I can't work out if I love or hate Pineapples Have Peelings Too, but I had to get it! I'm hoping it can pass as an ugly pretty colour.

L-R: 'Push and Shove Duo' and 'The Txture Effect Duo' - 'My Current Crush' (liquid sand) and 'Natural Nail Base Coat'

I've heard conflicting reviews regarding the Push and Shove duo, so picked it up to try it myself. I love liquid sands and texture polishes so had to get the Txture Effect duo!

Color Club, Morgan Taylor, & Sally Hansen
(Colour Clubs from Head2ToeBeauty, Sally Hansen from Walmart, Morgan Taylor from Cosmoprof)

L-R: Color Club 'Just My Luck' and 'Sweet Getaway', Sally Hansen 'White Out' and Morgan Taylor 'Mang-around With Me'

My first Color Clubs! I had to get one of the Halo Hues, and went for 'Just My Luck' as it has a gorgeous minty shimmer. Also my first Morgan Taylor polish (I swear this was more of a peachy mango colour in the shop but nevermind).

And we're done! What do you think of my mainstream haul? If you want to know anything about any of the polishes mentioned, feel free to leave me a comment below!

Hope to see you in the next post!

  1. Looking forward to the swatches on these :-)

  2. Did you bring an empty suitcase for all of these beauties?? If I was going to the US this would be what I would do lol Very nice haul, cant wait to here your thoughts on the colorclubs :) I have bother first sets of the halo hues and 3 from the new collection.

    1. Not sure why that posted as unknown

    2. I nearly took a nail polish carry case but in the end just bubble wrapped each polish and tightly packed them into a couple of boxes in my suitcase :) ooh what three did you pick from the new collection? Quite a lot just looked silvery to me! x

    3. I went for the 3 with the most colour, star light star bright a delicate green, Sidewalk Psychic a rusty red, lastly Crystral Baller the blue :) as you say the others were all a variation on silver and I already have Harp on it so didnt see the point of another 3 which was almost identical.

    4. I don't blame you! I hadn't seen Star Light Star Bright, it looks super pretty :) x

  3. What an amazing haul! Looking forward to seeing the swatches, especially pineapples have peelings (I could never make my mind up on that one)

    1. Thank you Helen! I'm the same with Pineapples Have Peelings too, always been curious about it but can't work it out! I'm 50/50 whether it will look horrible or not on the nail haha! x
