♥ Grand Forks U.S.A. Goodies ♥

Wow - I need way more time to get on here to post stuff...... here is my most recent haul of goodies when I visited Grand Forks North Dakota - I have always found cool stuff at the Family Dollar and Dollar Tree = Just going to those two stores is worth it to travel down (2 hours ). I also (thankfully) found Pure Ice polish's.... oooooooh MYYYY GOOOOOOODNEEEESSSSSS , oh my goodness, those polish's are friggen awesome, for 2 bucks!!! Next time I go down on a Bizznezz trip - I am totally buying one of each! One of each of every color - I am serious, every single one that I looked at ( there was like, 50 of them ) were really, really beautiful. AND they are square bottles - how awesome! I could not locate Sinful polish though...... I believe they can be bought at Walgreen? ( right ? ) So next time I visit the U.S.A. I will be on the hunt for those.

I am extra lazy on this lovely Sunny Sunday - but I will get some swatches going and take more photos-Most of these have already been covered on the nail blogs. Right now I have some exciting home improvement projects I want to get started on - hope my nails survive it!

I ended up buying my stainless steel B.B's at Walmart Here in Canada - but I wanted to find a lesser quantity, instead of 2500 of them, with no luck. There is a few things missing from my photos, as I had to leave a few things at my MOm's house. Just mostly house-hold stuff and my mini soft drinks that they don't make in Canada.

!!! I got my friggen Root Beer !!!

Any hoo- first up - My Walmart polish haul -
Love My nails - $1.00 each USD
Pure Ice - $2.00 each USD
Wet n' Wild $0.93 each USD
The Cutex pump bottle was on clearance for $3.00USD

The B.B.'s were $6.00 Canadian..... 2500 count ( sheesh )

Dollar Tree Goodies... Ahhhhh - I love that store - Seriously I had to hold back and not buy doubles of things, If I had more room I would have bought way, way more extra nail polish - those minis are actually pretty good - surprising. I picked up 3 Loreal loose eye shadows, that are very nice, and very pigmented duo-chromes, ( crappy pic - it was late ) I was happy to find those older Revlon's, I liked the brush on those and wish most nail polish ( all brands ) came in bottels like this for easier storage.

I will be swatching these cute minis asap - just in case they show up at a Dollar tree near you -

Did I mention that all these lovely things pictured here were a dollar? = AWESOME!!!!!!

Family Dollar = another awesome store - lots of nail polish for $1.00/ $2.00 USD and some gum for my DH.

Arissa'a - $2.00 each USD
L.A. Nails - $1.00 each USD
Glitter minis' - $1.00 each USD

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I popped in a Sally Beauty Supply and found 2 cute minis for $0.49 cents each - "Mellow" and "Chill", and some grinding stones (.99cents) and a brush for my battery operated nail thing.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Here is some small amounts of glitter that I took form my moms huuuuuge glitter stash - she gotz glittah! I am slowly weeding out my craft stash and am trying to only purchase and or acquire what I really, really need. I will be making a donation to her soon of the glitter that I have hanging around here......

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

And an awesome jewelry pliers set that I got for $9.99 USD - I have been looking for pretty girly color jewelery pliers for a long time - here in Canada they are either super-duper expensive or just above a reasonable/realistic price=but poorly made (expensive CRAP) So I was happy to find these for 10 bucks.

And I found some other awesome things at T.J. Maxx - fancy sheet sets for $ 20.00 U.SD each, and some delicious smelling hair conditioner - We also ate amazing meals, and pizza - but I will not torture people with Food Porn - that's cruel.
