Atlanta Nail Meetup & Shopping/Haul

Hey y'all!  So last weekend I had the fortunate opportunity to meet up with some local polish addicts, IGers, nail tech's, and a polish maker.  We went out for lunch & then did some shopping.  A great time was had by all and I have pics to share!

To start off with, we met up at a Vietnamese restaurant specializing in Pho.  I wanted something light and easy so I went with the steamed shrimp & pork spring rolls.  They were so yummy, but I couldn't eat BOTH of them. 

We ate, talked, and had some fun.  Also, there were a few giveaways and games.  So, yanno that was interesting.  Lets just say trying to find your first Instagram post when you have over 1700 is pretty difficult.

Then, of course we had to go SHOPPING.  There were so many of us walking around that I only got one good shot of the stock. Dionne from Glittery Fingers & Sparkling Toes was shopping with me & we both went a little nuts. We kept getting our carts stuck & ramming into each other.  SO much fun.  Also, it helped me that she'd been there before so she showed me around.

 This was my haul, which I'll have everything listed from it down in the post.  I'll just say there were only 2-3 of us who needed a box like this.  #polishaddictproblems

 Then, when we all finished, we HAD to take a group nail shot.  If you saw yesterdays post, you'll know which hand is mine. :D

Also, I picked up the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon collection for a friend & boxed them up for her.

All in all it was a great day.  Even with the traffic in and around Atlanta on my way there.  This is honestly the most polish I've bought in a LONG time, and I felt kinda guilty.  Then I reminded myself that some of it was for a friend, some was for my giveaway stash, and I needed to treat myself because I've not been doing that at all lately. 

Now that my swatch basket is getting full I must get down to business.  What can't you wait to see?
