Whew, it’s been a crazy few days!
I got a ton of polish in the last week, for very little cashola.
I believe I mentioned before that the amazing Alyssa bought me some bargain-priced polishes out in Cali. I also got my Julep add-on… all on one day, Thursday. I had already painted my nails a hot pink (with a tint of purple in it) with a fun accent nail.
I was jazzed about my mail though so I had to take pictures of each of them, of course!
Essie Chocolate Cakes
OPI Russian Navy (it looks purple in the bottle, but truly applies as a deep navy with this gentle shimmer to it!)
I haven’t used any of my new colors yet… still trying to decide from ALL new colors what to use for my trip to NJ. I leave tomorrow evening… suggestions are welcome!
Later on Thursday, I discovered on twitter that it was “IPA day.” So while picking up a few groceries I of course added some beer.
Love the political message and of course, the beer. The Hocus Pocus wheat was probably one of the ONLY wheats I’ve ever liked!
Friday was a tough work day and B was off, so he cleaned the house while I was a busy bee in my office. I came out to a sparkling clean home!
On Sunday, I decided to return the favor, and organized our bathroom (the counter had been previously stacked with boxes.
And you might notice… nail polish!!!
Yep, I removed it from it’s overflowing box and spread it out across the counter.
I love it! I am hoping to get a tiered holder (like the polish rack table display on this site) to store them in eventually.
I also added a few new polishes to that collection on Sunday. I found two polishes while unpacking the aforementioned boxes.
Color Club Rebel Debutante (not on their website that I could find, but can be found on Amazon.) My best friend got it for me as a wedding gift back in 2010.
And I found another Revlon Vixen (I had five at one point… gave away/threw out the others based on their condition.) Anyone want this one?
I also bought two, but got them for only a percentage of retail. I used a bunch of coupons from CVS for $$ off, plus a 25% off coupon- all from ExtraCare. It was about $34 for two nail polishes and foundation/powder. After coupons, I used a $7 AmEx gift card I had, making the total just over $7. Both of the nail polishes I got are $8 or more!
Essie luxeffects Pure Pearlfection. I needed a very basic shimmery glitter to go over colors when a mani has a few imperfections and is showing wear.
And of course, a Seche Vite, aka the best top coat in the world.
There’s lots to be done before I depart on my trip to NJ tomorrow night! Now off to decide what color mani is worthy of New Jersey…
