Let's take a look at the polishes, shall we?
First ones up are Essies; Penny Talk and Toggle to the Top. Penny talk is bought with stamping in mind, that collection of Mirror Metallics stamps so well! The other one reminds me of Leading Lady, just darker and with more glitter! I'll make a comparison post at some point for sure!

Then there's Q R S polishes. I've never heard about that brand before, but thought I would try a couple ones out. The left one is a holo glitter, the right one is neon in real life.
|Q R S: Glittering Rainbow and Snapdrag|
Nicole By OPI isn't that easy a brand to get your paws on here, so I bought three from the Gumdrop collection.

I also went to Forever 21, and bought these three Love & Beauty-polishes. I wasn't impressed by any other colours than these. In fact: I did find the selection a bit boring!
|Love & Beauty: Purple Silver. Love & Beauty Sand lacquers: Purple Silver and Blue Jewel|
I didn't find many Color Clubs, and that made me wonder where the US girls find them. The only Color Club I bought was this effect polish. The other two are Sally Hansen X-treme wear polishes. I have a lot of red glitters like that one - it's my kryptonite - I have to have them all...
|Color Club: Pearl-spective, Sally Hansen: Green Rocket and Red Carpet|
I love Sally Hansen Insta-Dri! I acidentally bought the blue one twice, I must really like it ;) It's the first time that ever happens that I buy duplets by mistake!
|Sally Hansen Insta-Dri: Pink Fast, S-Pear Time, Current Trend, Quick Jeanious|
Here are three polishes from OPI's Mariah Carey holiday collection from 2013. Some of you know that I am not a huge OPI fan, but I actually felt these three speaking to me ;)
|OPI: In My Santa Suit, It's Frosty Outside, Kiss me at Midnight|
Icing! I love Icing's polishes. I chose six - these three: A glitter, a shimmer and a textured polish.
|Icing: Frost Yourself, Teal for Real, Tini Bikini|
|Icing: Jean'ie in a Bottle, Daisy Duke, Galaxy|
That was the last part of my New York haul. 58 polishes came with me home, and I love them all. Do you have any favourites that speak to you?
