Remember how I went to Cosmoprof North America way back in August last year? Don’t worry if you don’t, I forget things too. In fact, I kind of forgot to finish unpacking my luggage until … oh let’s just say …. Christmas! Despite having already shared my hauls from Milani, CVS, Ulta, MAC Cosmetics, and Sephora Part 1 and Part 2, there are in fact a lot more products I haven’t shown you yet. Yes, yes, I am sick and I have issues. I know.
Today I am going to show you the mega nail polish haul. To be honest, I don’t know what I was thinking collection all this nail polish because even if I painted my nails everyday for the next 100 years, I will never get through it all. On the plus side, they are all just soooooooooo pretty.
Some of the polishes you will have seen before as I pulled those out in the early days, but the majority were buried deep in a bag. Here I go ….
One of the many lacquers I picked up in this haul
Zoya create beautiful nail polishes all individually named with female names. I have always wanted to try their polishes but had never seen them in person until I went to Cosmoprof.

I had previously tried two pink Nubar nail polishes that were given to me, and I thought they were pretty nice. I never realized the variety the brand had, so when I saw the Nubar stand at Cosmoprof North America, I tried to restrain myself to buying just ONE polish. Sets count as one right?

I only discovered Jesse’s Girl during this very trip to the USA and I am so glad I did. They are classed as a drugstore brand but they don’t look it at all. They have a huge range of lacquers and these three will be my starting point.
USA – Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics

Oh Deborah Lippmann. What can I say about Deborah Lippmann. I had the pleasure of meeting Deborah during Cosmoprof and she just bowled me over. I didn’t know much about her and never had tried her nail polishes because they are just about impossible to get to Australia. Now I will go to the ends of the earth to get her amazing creations.

SpaRitual was a brand I discovered at Cosmoprof and I have since shown you this gorgeous collection that was released to support breast cancer. In case you missed it the first time, here it is again!

Layla is a brand of nail polish from Italy, and one I had again never heard of before I went to Cosmoprof. Among many things, they create this genius line of magnetic nail polishes. I had to pick one up!

Milani stormed into my life during this trip to the states, and boy am I glad it did. I showed you the products I welcomed into my beauty cupboard but here are the nail polishes again. They are just so awesome.

I must have been living under some serious gigantic rock because I had never heard of L.A. Girl until only a couple months before I went to Cosmoprof. When I saw them there I was very excited to see all their products up close. I had to take these nail polishes home with me!
