polish purchases: december edition

wow, so it's almost the end of january and i'm just now posting my polish purchases from december. . . . that's super lame. to be honest, my interest in nail polish has been waning a lot recently. i don't know if it's being pregnant, or just extra busy, or what, but it's true. i was really worried that i was over my obsession with nail polish :S. it was very disconcerting. just like my mom, i go through phases where i'm all about something, then it runs its course, and i get tired of it and move on to something else. does anyone else do this?? so i was scared this is what was happening. . . . but then tonight i looked through my entire stash, trying to pick out what to wear next, and was relieved to discover that my passion for polish has been rekindled. maybe i just needed a break? who knows. but now, i'm actually excited again about wearing new polish combos.

phew, ok anyway, back to my purchases from last month (which were not many):


salon perfect champagne toast ($3.98)- i spotted this at walmart last month, and was instantly reminded of china glaze ultamate holiday, which is a gold holo glitter. i'd been wanting that one for forever, so i just had to buy this one. turns out, it's very sheer and has tiny, tiny holo particles (kind of like china glaze fairy dust, only gold), so i'll have to fiddle around and find a good base polish before i can wear it. still pretty though!
maybelline color show sequins rose bling ($3.99)- true story: i was having a very, very crappy day last month, and called my husband at work to complain/vent. do you know what he said? "i'm sorry, honey. go buy yourself a nail polish." yes! what a guy :). so of course, i did. and the first polish that drew my eye at rite aid was this gorgeous, rose glitter with magenta and holo hexes. sooo glad i picked this one up!
orly miss conduct ($6.49)- so, this is a little out of my normal price range (i like to stay under $4 if i can), but everyone online has been raving about miss conduct, and apparently i'm on a huge raspberry kick right now, so it became mine when i saw it at sally's. i think it was the only one left, so score!

GRAND TOTAL FOR DECEMBER: $14.46

i can't believe i only bought 3 polishes all month. . . . that's pretty much never happened before. i told you i was worried about my apathy towards nails!! oh well, it's good to save a little money. god knows i'm gonna need it with baby coming.

  2. I finally got Miss Conduct too, love it! Don't worry about the passion for polish, I went through something similar a few months after I got really into it. I don't think it's the passion going away, it's more like it's moving from the fiery honeymoon phase into the steady,enduring love phase :)
