I sure as hell cannot turn down a great deal and when it's on nail polish, I am especially weak. This week I picked a few things up at my local Sally Beauty and CVS. Here's a look at what I picked up. Sorry I have no nail pictures, skittles will happen soon.

Sunday, June 19, 2011 Polish Insanity

As I mentioned in my last post, I just received my first order and I am sort of embarrassed to admit how much I spent. I saved some money by going through Ebates so I'm getting 6% cash back and I saved $5 from an online coupon as well. If you like money and shop online ever I suggest joining ebates by clicking the above link. So here's what I got:
OPI Black Shatter

Red Sparkles and Black Crackle

My first order from came in on Friday and I couldn't resist but to try my OPI Black Shatter over a red base so I could try the newest nail trend for myself.

Trade Secret Clearance Haul

My local Trade Secret had a ridiculous clearance sale so I picked up a few things that I've wanted to try and some polish colors. There were three shades of Nicole by OPI - Nic's Stiks for $1, two shades of OPI polish for $2 and a few essie topcoats for $3. I couldn't resist but to pick up one of everything minus the basic essie topcoat.

Lush Shower Jelly: Review

Yesterday I visited Lush and couldn't resist the Shower Jelly after I sampled it in store. The Joy of Jelly smells like jasmine, lily and rose and is super moisturizing thanks to the jasmine absolute and seaweed in there. Not only does it make your skin super soft but its fun! Why use boring soap or shower gel when you can have jelly?

Kat Von D Lightning Lipgloss

As a L.A. Ink and a Kat Von D fan, I was thrilled when she came out with her own line of make up at Sephora. I especially loved the tattoo-inspired artwork on the palettes. I was hesitant to purchase because of some reviews I read but when I saw this on sale for $4 I knew that the Gunshine Lightning Lipgloss and I were meant to be.

Lush Ring of Roses Soap: Review

While visiting my local Lush to purchase an everyday conditioner, the cashier was nice enough to give me a huge sample of Ring of Roses Soap. I was so excited because I've been interested in trying their shower products as up until this point I had merely used lotions and a deep conditioner.

Orly Polish: Review

This is my first time using Orly Polish, I was really excited to try them out because of the high price tag which to me suggested great quality. I purchased Charged Up, one of the Hot Neons, and It's Up to Blue, a Dazzling Shimmer both of the permanent collection. I did not swatch the blue but Charged Up is my current manicure.
