Here is how it started: I was at work one day and I just had this overwhelming desire to SHOP! I fought it as best as I could BUT it was the day Ulta had butter LONDON's on sale for $9 each! Come on! How could I not go? That experience was harsh, BTW. I love every color by butter LONDON! I had about $180 dollars worth in my bag that day. I just couldn't spend that kind of money and not get a lot for it. I know that butter LONDON is a really coveted brand but my pocketbook just can't get behind it. So, I put back all but 4 butter LONDON polishes (that was painstaking).
Then I went by the Ulta brand polishes. I didn't have any of those in my collection yet. I checked them out and they looked pretty decent! Those were on sale for 2/$4 when regularly $6 each! DEAL! With that I went for the Ulta's. I walked out of there with a stellar deal! Then I kept thinking about that sale...and proceeded to buy the entire collection.
As if this wasn't enough! I found the entire Avant Garden collection by China Glaze on eBay for a decent amount of money. I absolutely adore this collection so, of course, I had to take advantage of the deal...
I also took advantage of the clearance sale at Sally Beauty Supply. I had a coupon to use too so I got a few other things in addition to polish, but those aren't shown here. :P
OK, now on to the really bad but totally awesome purchase... I had to go to the mall today. I usually avoid that place like the plague, but at work today my underwire snapped in my bra. My favorite bra. It turns out that Cacique was having a flash sale today and I could get a replacement for under $20! But, the sale started at 5pm and I had time to kill. So, I went to my hidden polish gem store (you wouldn't think they had polish in this store - but they do and they have a LOT at good prices) to see what was on clearance. I stumbled upon both the 2012 & 2013 holographic polishes by Color Club. They weren't on clearance but I knew it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me so I snagged them. ALL OF THEM! Check it out:
With this purchase, I got 4 OPI Shatter polishes for free.
I have to be done now...oh, wait! I have 3 more butter LONDON's on their way to my door. There was an awesome deal on GMA this week for 3 pre-selected shades, so I got those too. I think I am done now for a while. That is, unless a really good deal comes my way...
