Late Summer Collective Polish Haul!

**all items purchased by me

I went back and forth on what to post today, and I finally decided to post all the polishes that I bought from the local beauty supply store during July, August and September.  I bought all of these from there since they have the best prices on OPI, China Glaze and Color Club (as well as Essie and Zoya).  I figured I might as well get these all shared while I (im)patiently wait for them to get in the latest release of Zoya PixieDusts, China Glaze Halloween and now OPI's massive holiday collection.  Of course, now if I get fed up waiting, I can drive just a couple of minutes over to Ulta (or Sally's for China Glaze)...might have to pay more, but at least I have the possibility.

So first thing, I came across an older bottle of cuticle oil in the cabinet that I had actually dropped and it broke - darn glass bottles get so slippery after rubbing oil into your cuticles, but I managed to save the majority of the oil so I finally remembered to get an empty bottle to decant it into.
My next trip a week later (I believe I was looking for the OPI San Francisco collection that they hadn't gotten in yet), I remembered to get an empty polish bottle (I want to try that Elmer's white glue as a base coat for glitters) and OPI Liquid Sand in Vesper on clearance for $.99
Another week later (and still looking for the San Francisco collection) I came across this bottle of Glints Of Glinda from OPI on clearance for $.99
Next trip, they finally had the Liquid Sand portion of the San Francisco collection in (came in separate from the rest).  I decided just to get 2 (at first):
 Alcatraz...Rocks and Wharf! Wharf! Wharf!
And finally, around the beginning of September, I had seen some swatches of Color Club and China Glaze polishes that I wanted to look for, and I decided to get the 3rd Liquid Sand:
Color Club Williamsburg, China Glaze Rendezvous With You
OPI Liquid Sand It's All San Andreas's Fault
~Color Club Williamsburg is from the Fall 2013 Girl About Town
~China Glaze Rendezvous With You is from the Fall 2013 Autumn Nights collection
~OPI It's All San Andreas's Fault is from the Fall 2013 San Francisco collection

I believe this gets me all caught up with my recent "salon brand" purchases.  I can say that I've been good and not been there since the last purchase - instead, I'm stalking their Facebook page waiting for any kind of update...but I'm thinking I might go there soon just to look around since the owner isn't always on top of making arrival announcements.

Do you have any of the polishes that I've got in my haul today?  Any you'd like to see on the nail sooner rather than later?  Do let me know!
