So I had a lot of errands I needed to do yesterday. I had to go to the post office, pick up some stuff from Trader Joes, and return some things at the library. And even though it was 11:30am, it was so busy. But since I was over by a Sally's, I figured I might as well just stop on by and see what they have on clearance.
Normally when I go to Sally's they always have nail polish deals like Buy 2 Get 1 Free. I hadn't heard of any of those for a while and they didn't have any signs up when I went there, so I just decided to go in there and head directly for the clearance rack so I wouldn't spend too much money.
The only thing I don't like about the clearance section at Sally's is the fact that it makes me second guess myself. For example, I find a polish that I think looks really cute and I think about getting it. But then all of a sudden I start to wonder why it's on clearance. I mean, did they put it on clearance because it was so ugly and nobody would pay full price for it? That sounds plausible, right?
However, I have managed to convince myself that the only reason why those polishes are over there is because people bought the polish so quickly, that there was only one or two left. And of course these polishes are just limited edition, so when they want to refill the section on the nail polish rack, there isn't any more of the color. So they are forced to remove it and discount it so they can at least put it somewhere. With that type of thinking, I buy my clearance polishes.
Comment below if you know what I am talking about!!!
Yesterday I managed to trick/convince myself into getting two polishes. The one of the left is an Orly color. Have I mentioned how much I love Orly nail polishes? I really do. Anyway, this is a taupy grey color. When I saw this I was really excited. I wanted to get Stiletto from Julie G's collection, but never got around to it. This one doesn't sparkle like Stiletto does, but the color is pretty close. It was on sale for $2.69.
The little guy on the right is by Sally Girl and is called Coconut. This was on sale because it was a featured scented polish that obviously will smell like coconut. I tried it on real fast when I got home and it actually smells like coconut. They had some other colors, but I figured I'd just get one. Also, this polish will be able to satisfy my pastel requirements for the 17 challenge (click here to read more about it). This little thing was only 69 cents. Yay for deals!
Overall, I got two new nail polishes, and I can't wait to test them out and see what designs I can make with them.
Until next time. . .
