Good stuff in July!! It started with Rainbow Honey's July Mystery Bag, which came with a Midori rollerball, large Midori cuticle balm, Midori cooling gel, and three polishes. I thought the cooling gel was an awesome addition this month. It is sort of like aloe, but with a pleasant scent and a tiny bit of sparkle. This trial size bottle will be perfect to take along on a tropical vacation, and I can't wait to use it after a long day at the beach.

The polishes are Chemical Plant, Deep Heart Sea, and Viridia.

Next, I was incredibly surprised when a package from Rainbow Honey showed up at my door. It had been sent to my old Maryland address and forwarded to me in Minnesota. I had been sent these three polishes as a press sample--my first ever!! This is One Minute More, Work It Out, and Elevate.

At Sally's, I had an offer for buy one, get one free, so I stopped in to browse. I grabbed Sun Worshipper, and saw that they had The Giver Collection out! I picked up Boundary of Memory, History of the World, and Friends Forever, Right?.
Of course, I couldn't resist a Llarowe sale! I picked up a few Dance Legend Mist Way polishes, Albion and Be Mine; some random two dollar clearance polishes from both Dear Rus, #15 and #18; and Chick Polish Hipster Chick.
My sister clued me in about our local Shopko's clearance bins. They are hidden away in a corner, so, from her directions, I found the spot and was pleasantly surprised to see some of the Maybelline Bleached Neons collection left! I picked up the limited edition Color Tattoo in Shimmering Sea, Color Whisper in Peach Punch and the polish, Bleached in Peach.

We're not even done yet! Our local Kmart is going out of business and has marked down everything in the store. I browsed their surprisingly large cosmetics department and found some dusty gems. I found two older OPI's - Magazine Cover Mouse from one of the Minnie Mouse collections and The One That Got Away from the Katy Perry Collection. I also found Sally Hansen Big Smoky Topcoat, Milani Cupid's Touch (the best Wild Orchid purple!!), and the diamond glitter from Nicole by OPI, Be Awesome. I also picked up some nail art stickers and clean-up brushes (I use the concealer brush from E.L.F.).

Finally, Harlow & Co. restocked Powder Perfect just a few days ago. I had been eyeing some pretties from the Abandoned Mansion collection for a few months now. They are so beautiful! I was at work for the restock, so I prepped my husband to do battle and grab these as soon as the restock went live in case they sold out fast. He did an excellent job, and I got all my lemmings: Fading Tapestry, Widow's Walk, Around the Salvatore Fireplace, and Secret Passageway. Perfect for fall, and I cannot wait for cooler temps, changing leaves, and snow!

I didn't intend for this month to be so huge, but I am really going to enjoy these beauties!
More soon! ^_^
