Bank Holiday Nail Polish Purchases

It feels like I haven't blogged in ages!
Mr GT took sometime off over the bank holiday so he could have a nice long weekend off before the kids start back at school next week, so I haven't been doing much with my nails but I have been shopping!
I've never done a 'haul' type post before. Mostly because I really dislike the word haul but also because I usually tend to buy nail polish in dribs and drabs so I never really have a 'haul' worthy amount to show you, but this was not only Bank Holiday weekend, it was also payday weekend, so I spoilt myself.

Firstly I ordered three of the new China Glaze Bohemian collection earlier in the week then Mr GT ordered the other three for me.

It's not often I can say I love an entire collection but I really do love every one of these. So beautiful! I don't plan to do any swatches of them as there are hundreds already out there but if anyone particularly wants me to swatch them too I will.
I am however thinking up some nail art ideas for them!
I also bought Hang Ten Toes from the neon collection, I thought I didn't need it as well as Love's A Beach but I was wrong. I did.
The last few times I have bought China Glaze polishes I have bought from HERE and they have always arrived super fast and really well packaged.

Whilst on Amazon I also bought a few other bits and bobs including these new nail art brushes.
They are Sable and really soft. They were £6.44 including P&P from HERE.
They also have a website HERE but it is for some reason slightly more expensive to order this set straight from them at £6.94 inc P&P. There do sell a lot of other nail polish and nail art supplies at fairly good prices as well as make up too so it might be worth a look!

My local Superdrug had Barry M Nail Paints for 2 for £5 (not inc effects) so I picked up Coral, Cobalt Blue, Yellow and Block Orange.

They also had the Magnetic polishes for 2 for £8 so I bought Cosmic Glow, Super Nova, Dark Silver, Venus Sunset, Neptune Sea, and Moon Dust. Again I don't plan to swatch but if you would like me to I'd be more than happy to oblige!

I also got the new Burgundy Croc Efftects which wasn't offer, I had just lost all self control by then.
I'd also just like to say that the Barry M's were bought over the space of a few days not all in one go and I used my Superdrug Beauty Card Points on them. Mr GT reminded me at the till on our third trip that we did actually need to eat this month. Spoil sport.

Finally my most exciting purchase.
Let me introduce you to Hetty!

Oh yes. I named her.

Sorry if this bored you silly! I do like to see the odd haul post on other blogs every now and then but like I said I usually buy here and there so these will probably be far and few between on Glitter Tips!
I do have some nail art posts lined up for you as my nail block has finally lifted, and I have also finally got all the bits for my 100 follower giveaway! Hurrah! 
Keep your peepers peeled for that.
