I've been shopping again...
I think I should ban myself from the internet in the evening as I always discover amazing bargains then convince myself that I need whatever is on sale, which most of the time tends to be makeup of sorts. Take this purchase for instance, FragranceDirect has full-sized Essie polishes for £2 each (you can view the rather large selection and spend your hard-earned pennies here) and that's just too good of a deal to pass up.
L-R Bangle Jangle, Navigate Her, Power Clutch, Carry On
I ended up getting four, as that adds up to £8 - around the RRP of one Essie nail polish. Impeccable logic, right?
I got two light colours and two darks, the lights being Bangle Jangle - a really light lilac purple and Navigate Her which is the most gorgeous green ever, sort of a light khaki colour.
Power Clutch is a dark greyed khaki and Carry On is a deep burgundy, I got these two as winter is fast approaching and I feel a bit out of place wearing hot pink nail polish all through the Christmas season, as much as I want to.
As well as the Essie polishes, I indulged in some of the other bargains and shiz Fragrance Direct has to offer. Most of it may have been nail polish...but..uh...I needed it all...for...um...uh...
*cough* Let's move on, shall we?
I love the L'Oreal Colour Infalliable Eyeshadows, so I added this everyday neutral brown colour to my collection - I now have three of them!
I've heard a few beauty gurus on YouTube rave about the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer and I will try anything to cover up my dark circles (except spend a lot of money on, say, the Bobbi Brown Correcter. I'm sure I'll get round to it someday).
Sally Hansen Grass Slipper is a colour I've been wishing I had lately, mainly for some kind of nail art look I have in mind and my other green nail polishes just don't fit the bill.
Two Rimmel polishes found their way into my basket, Apricot Punch is lighter than any of my other orange-based corals, and Lemon Drop is - according to the internet - opaque in two coats, which is so hard to find in a pastel yellow so I thought I'd give it a go!
I already have one Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish and I adore the formula, I'm so impatient when it comes to waiting for polish to dry and these basically takes the waiting element out of painting my nails. Brisk Blue is a basic primary blue, and I got Whirlwind White as internet swatches proclaim it to be opaque in two coats, and coupled with it being fast-drying I'm hoping it'll knock the socks off my OPI Alpine Snow.
So that is the story in which I ended up with nine more polishes. What was your most recent unnecessary splurge? Please tell me, it'll make me feel better :)
