Mail call! Long day at school, always nice to come home to goodies.


I seem to be accumulating polish at an alarming rate this January. These came in the mail today from several sources...

Shopping. It's how I cope with stress. Unfortunately, I don't actually have a ton of time to play with my new toys. I'm swimming (drowning) in data. Which is better than having no data. But I've been (non) jokingly referring to my current grind as "one null result a day". I left a lot of data analysis for this week... and none of the experiments are turning out significant results. I'm literally disappointed by a different experiment every day.

I know science isn't about finding significant results. But academic research is.

But enough depressive yapping. On to the stuff.


Essie Going Incognito and Smokin' Hot from eBay; Zoya Kelly, Tiffany and Crystal from Zoya.com during their last promotion. (I've got the entire Intimacy collex coming. Man, those free spoon trays that come with some orders are seductive...)

These came pretty quickly, considering they print them on-demand. (They had a 50% off sale when I ordered. I'm such a sucker.) They look like they're of fabulous quality too.


Bunch of nail stickers from Inque: Blue Plaid, Peacock, Argyles Can Party!, Party Balls, All American Girl. (Apparently, all-American girls wear paisley?)








But the best pretty present (that I, uh, bought for myself) came from the UPS guy:


China Glaze's Anchors Away!

My task for the weekend -- besides finding more null results and watching my nascent academic career fail before even starting: swatching Anchors Away! I've been looking forward to this collex for a long time. :)

I have been acquiring polishes at an alarming rate as well. Something like 20 in the last couple of weeks. I am actually considering going on a no-buy at least until there are no more untrieds. I'm buying so much yet I'm not enjoying what I've got!

I know what you mean! I'm getting more and more and I seem to have trouble trying them all on. And still I want more...
I'm awaiting my own set of Anchors Away, not all of them but I ordered 8 in total. I always get happy with new polishes and I also say to myself, as long as I don't actually get ruined or my bf object I'm all good. :)

What a lovely bunch of goodies!! I ordered Kelly too and have it on right now - I am loving it :) Those stickers are awesome to - being an American Girl though... I can say that I have never worn paisley LOL I also ordered the 6 Knotty Nauticals from the CG collection - I can't wait to get them :)

Haven't gotten my free polishes yet. Sigh. Love all the polishes you've bought. Such pretty shades. I hope you do get some good results with your research. Love those stickers!
