Walmart Haul (Fing'rs and more!)

So a little while back I saw Nouveau cheap post about a brand Fing'rs that I had never heard of. As soon as I saw her post I knew I had to get to Walmart ASAP. I waited about 2 days to get paid and then literally the first thing I did with my paycheck was go and check out the display!

I am sad that I forgot to take a picture of the display, but you can go to your local walmart and there is probably an endcap dedicated to it in the beauty section, like there was at mine. Or you can click on the word 'post' above where I linked through to Nouveau Cheap's post about it. 

So let's jump right in:
There were so many awesome colors, I had a really rough time narrowing it down. And so cheap! Because of the size of the bottles I assumed that the polishes were nail art brushes- but they aren't. I am actually more pleased with that, but bummed that I didn't grab more for that reason. I heard that the displays are being wiped out but hopefully I can get to them again and grab a few more.

As you can probably tell, these are GORGEOUS. From Left to right we have purple reign, blue a fuse, & in mint condition 
These all retailed for less than $2! And they are gorgeous! I haven't done a full swatch yet but I am a little disappointed in the glitters (the 2 that are in focus)...they look packed but in reality they don't seem to be that packed. However with a little manipulation and layering I'm sure you could get some great payoff! I will be sure to post a manicure soon where I spotlight these colors!

As you can see I did not just get Fing'rs brand. Now you can see in mint condition better. After those we have-

Sinful Colors tempest - a bright lavender shade, Sinful Colors kissy- a deep hunter green loaded with gold glitter, and Sally Hanson Insta-dri pink blink a soft pink that reminds me of a ballerina.

The sinful colors were around $2 and the Sally Hanson was $4.

Aside from polish I also got some nail art goodies. From left to right, Salon Perfect nail art duo. This is great, and exactly what I've been looking for. One side is a dotting tool, and the other is a thin but sturdy brush to do nail art with. This was around $2. 

Next is the Fing'rs heavy metal extreme nail art kit. This kit comes with 20 sheets of foil (I have never used foil but I am willing to try it out!), 68 studs, & a small black bottle of polish. It retails for $6 and change. I have been wanting to try studs on my nails for so long (I'm obsessed with studs!) and I know this is much more expensive than buying some offline, however, I paid for convenience and peace of mind knowing that I wasn't putting my credit card online.
and last is the Fing'rs heart 2 art stripe out nail art. This comes with 3 rolls of striping tape and was around $3. Again, I definitely overpaid but it was worth it to me because it was still cheap enough.

Last but not least from Walmart I got a new shampoo to try. I have never tried this brand- Organix. But I was looking for a sulfate free shampoo, and I wasn't totally thrilled with the last one I tried. This retailed for around $6 for 13 fl oz. It smells yummy, too!
sulfate free!
As you can see from the label, it is indeed sulfate free.

So, I was very pleased with my haul and even though I felt like I bought all cheap items, it definitely added up quickly!

I can't wait to use the nail polishes in some upcoming looks! In fact, in mint condition is next up! 

Follow your bliss, even if it leads to Walmart,

  1. I wonder if the Fingrs brand will ever pop up in Aus. I thought for sure they were liners. Lol.

    1. I hope for your sake that it does! I have heard that cheap beauty products are hard to come by in Aus!

  2. I'm sorta dying right now :p I know I'm gonna have to check out the walmart in the next town and I'm sure it was picked over last week lol do you know if its all permanent ? I want those polishes bad!

    1. I have heard that the displays have been a little picked over so I would definitely suggest checking it out ASAP! I don't know if it's permanent...the display seems temporary but there was also a few just on the regular shelves so maybe some of it is permanent, like the polishes? But the kits might not be. Don't quote me though, sorry! Hope I helped, thanks for reading & commenting :)

  3. I love the color of those sinful colors polish that you got! I really want to get that fingrs nail art kit too! I'm a new follower by the way :) I'm excited to read more from you!

    1. Aw thank you! I love the sinful colors colors (ha!) too, but the dark green one was more sheer than I expected! I will be posting a manicure featuring it within the next 2 days so keep your eyes out for it! Thanks again for following, I'm going to follow you as well :)
