I expected to go back to Oregon (from home in California) with more nail polishes than I left with, and that will certainly be true.
I came down with only twenty nail polishes, being unable to take my whole stash. I made my best guesses as to which ones I would most likely use in the month I'm down here. I'm definitely missing having access to the rest, though!
But on the upside, I'm buying more. :p
Here are two colours I bought shopping:
And a while ago, I posted about getting a three pack of Colormates from Big Lots for $2. Well, I like them, and they're definitely worth at least the 66 cents per bottle, so I was looking forward to going back and getting more to try out. Unfortunately, they didn't have any regular polishes. But they did have a couple three packs of nail art stripers, so I got this one to try:
And lastly, I ordered nail polish online for the first time. I've been out of the base coat I like, and when I went to order that, I decided to order my favourite top coat too. And I got the big bottles, since I know I like them, and it's like twice the cost for five times the amount.
And in case you're wondering, that is CND - Stickey, Anchoring Base Coat, and Out the Door top coat. I've been using Out the Door for all my manicures for a long time now, and like it better than Seche Vite and some others I've tried. And I used CND Stickey for while until I ran out, and now I'm back to using it again. I think this combination does good things for the longevity and appearance of my nail designs. :)
And that's it so far!
