I'll start with the OPI's i got at an outlet mall beauty store.. for $3.00 each!!! ahhh that was a good day! What happened was that i walked into the store and saw that they had the whole OPI Matte Collection on sale for a major markdown- i picked up four polishes that had the $3 sticker. I was shocked when i looked at what i had and realized that You Don't Know Jacques wasn't the matte version at all- it was the original! The bottle had been mismarked with the $3 sticker rather than the matte version, but since the sticker was on there, the girl at the counter was required to sell it to me for the $3 sticker price- SCORE! I was so insanely giddy since i had been pining over that color for forever!
From Left to Right: Gargantuan Green Grape- Matte, Russian Navy- Matte, Lincoln Park After Dark- Matte, You Don't Know Jacques
I also picked up three polishes that were marked down from $8.50 to $7.65- i'll take some savings whenever i can get it when i'm buying polish!
From Left to Right: Ski Teal We Drop, Cuckoo For This Color, Suzi Loves Cowboys
The first night i was there my sister and i painted nails and she ended up giving me some polishes she didn't really use anymore.
From Left to Right: Essie's Big Spender, N.Y.C's Big Money Frost, Skin Tight Denim Creme, Baby Pink
We also headed to a few Sally's and of course i ended up buying a few polishes there- on sale! The regular collection China Glaze colors were the 2/$10 deal, and Jolly Holly was on sale for $1.99! yay!
From Left to Right: For Audrey, Dorothy Who?, Jolly Holly, Ruby Pumps
And last but certainly not least are a few Sinful Colors that i picked up on a late night Walgreen's run.
From Left to Right: Green Ocean (2x), San Francisco, Daddy's Girl, Vacation Time
I picked up an extra Green Ocean because i figured that since it's a fairly sought after SC polish, i could throw it into a giveaway later on since some people don't have access to it, or their local Walgreen's doesn't have it.
--And on a last minute trip to Dollar Tree i picked up three more nail polishes! i just couldn't stop- my local DT isn't the best, but this one was huge! But these three additions brought my total to 23 polishes!
From Left to Right: N.Y.C.'s Kisses and i209A (these came in a two-pack), and an Art Deco Nail Striper in Silver.
So yup, you've finally reached the end of my enormous vacation post! I know i've used a lot of exclamation points in this post, but i can't help it- it was an exciting polish vacation, and i have lots of new colors to swatch and use in nail art!
Have you ever gotten an AMAZING deal on a good polish? Tell me about it!
(also if you have a good idea for travel polish storage, i'd love to hear it- my trunk case worked well but i'm always open to better ideas!)
Update: So, no matter how well you plan, nothing is for sure, and things can still go completely not the way you wanted them to. Last week i had planned to do nail art all week, but found myself stranded without my camera or editing software at my aunt's. We had to stay two extra days because of weather that would have been impossible for us to drive through. Anyways, i'm back home and have access to all my materials, so i'll try my best to have nail art every day this week. I'll also be posting on Sunday (today) and Saturday of this week to try to make up for the three posts i missed. Thanks for your patience <3
