Secret Santa for NAILS 2014! - Main Thread

Recommended Posts

I was going to wait for black friday to start shopping but I couldn't resist buying a couple items. I'm having so much fun.

Yes, that's it! Also, copying something I posted in the other Secret Santa thread (in case you are like me and can't remember the real name of the person you were assigned, which makes it tricky to hunt down their name on Elfster if you can't do a search): Go to the MUT Secret Santa group on Elfster. Look on the left side of the screen. It's under the MUT Santa picture!

Thank you!!

I couldn't resist making a purchase already. I want to mix it up yet also get her what she wants so I got one thing from her wishlist and one thing I *think* she might like based on her survey. There's something on Sephora I'm eyeing but I'm waiting for the $15 off BI coupon for that.

so excited too. Also, FYI for everyone whose giftees requested indies, @@ohsailor informed me that if you email some of the companies and ask them if they could provide a discount code, they usually do (something maybe like 10%-15%). She helped me out and told that Polish Me Silly was 15% off with MUT15. I emailed another (which stocks eyeshadow and as well as nail polish) and I'll let everyone know if I manage to score a code!

That's awesome! I'm totally out of my element when it comes to shopping for indie stuff, so I'd love to see who we can get promo codes from!

I may have bought the gift portions for both my Santees earlier on a Ulta run. Points and coupons = lots of spoiling going on! I may have also bought a couple of things for me at the same time.

Yeah I apologize to my Santa too because my Wishlist is nuts, even just the "nail" one is 50+ items.....I'm mostly just using it to keep track of stuff I want to buy :)

To whomever has me, I will be doing a lot of wishlist adding hopefully tonight or tomorrow.  I've been crazy busy and almost didn't get my survey completed.  I still have my Summerswap wish list in my signature also if you are looking for ideas.

I bought some stuff not on my santee's wishlist. I hope she still likes it. 

 

 

I did this as well.  I tried to go based off what it seemed like she liked.  Surprises are always nice too  :)

Yes, exactly! I find the wishlist tool to be EXTREMELY helpful but I think of it as more of a blueprint/guide than a mandate :)

Yeah, I'm using my wishlist as a  "here is the kind of stuff i like" to give an idea of brands, textures, glitters, colors, etc. For me personally a surprise that isn't straight from a wishlist is fun because it is unexpected!

I did the same, I based my purchases on colors I think she'll like.

I might include a couple polishes that were swatched as extras for my girl. Should I label them as such?

I did. It just seemed nice to do.

I did this last year and just included a cute little note just to make it clear.

I bought some really cute extras today that I think (hope) my Santee will like.  They were so cute I had to get one for myself!  I'm getting so excited.  It's so fun to shop for someone else.

I like surprises not in my list too! I think one of the funnest parts of these gift exchanges is seeing someone else's favorite stuff too.
