WalMart Nail Haul

Hey happy polishers :)  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  My "camping trip" was.. wet.  It rained from Friday when we got there until this morning :(  We didn't end up staying in the tent, we slept on an air mattress in the living room of the cottage we were at, only to find it deflated over night :(  There was a little hole in it that we found when we got home today.  It was good to spend time away with friends though, so in the end it was worth it :)

Anywho, I have for you today my haul from WalMart that I got last weekend.  I went shopping for shoes (I had a coupon that was going to expire and that would never do!) and ended up bringing home polish.. go figure! :P

Let's look at what I got :D

Left to Right:
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Snappy Sorbet, Mint Sprint, Brisk Blue
Revlon Top Speed Fire
PRO-FX Fiberized Ridge Filler
Let's start with the Sally Hansen Insta-Dris, shall we :)  This is the first time I have purchased these, but I have read that they are really good for stamping, so I thought I would give them a shot :)  Again, I tried to pick colours that I don't have something already close to in my collection.

This is a coral-y colour and I think this would look great with Zoya Irene :)

This is a really nice teal-y colour, I can't wait to try stamping this on white and black :)

I like that this colour is vibrant :)  Again, this is one that I want to try stamping over white!

So I didn't own a red in my collection... yes seriously, I didn't own a single real red!  I had a coupon for Revlon and I used it to buy this colour :D

Now, this is the best deal on polish I have found in a while (besides Julep's Intro Box for $0.01!).  75mL of base coats and top coats for less than $5.00 at WalMart!!!  Holy cow!  So I got the ridge filler.  I don't have a ridge filler, and I have never tried this brand before, so I thought I would give it a try.  They also didn't have any quick dry top coat left which is what I will be looking for every time I am in WalMart now :D

And just for a comparison, this is the Pro-FX ridge filler beside a full-sized OPI polish :)

Have you had any good WalMart/department store hauls lately?  It's amazing what you can find out there sometimes :D


  1. I haven't had a good haul in a while, but I do love those Insta-Dri polishes! Great haul!

    1. Thanks Lindsey! I got everything for under $20.00 :D Gotta love a deal even more than the haul itself sometimes! :D

  2. I'd love to hear how well that ridge filler works. I have the Beauty Secrets ridge filler and am totally satisfied with it, but it's the only thing I've tried, so I have no idea if there's anything better out there.

    1. So far I like it, but I'm finding that when I take it off I have rough spots on my nails, almost like it's scraping the top of my nail surface :( I'm not sure if it's the Pro-FX or the Essie Protein Basecoat that I got that's causing it, but I have never had that happen until I started using both of these basecoats :S

  3. The quick dry from Pro FX is good, but you have to be careful not to layer it on too thick or it WILL bubble. Learned that the hard way :P

    1. Good to know, thanks Julie :) I will be stalking WalMarts all over south-central Ontario until I get my hands on a bottle, I think it's the best deal around for topcoat and it's great knowing that it works :D (even with having to apply it thinly).
