>I love a good sale

31 Mar

>Pathmark by my job is closing, so they are having sales on everything. I’ve read and heard that you have to be really careful since they are not honoring the sales in their flyer. This probably means they are jacking up the prices, providing a small discount, and then letting you think that you are saving money.

This could be true, however the sales on cosmetics and beauty products are pretty good – 40-60% off. Most of the cosmetics are picked over, so I wasn’t able to purchase any eyeshadow or *gasp* nail polish! There was not one nail polish to be found. I did however, manage to score all this:

From L to R: Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover, Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Time Released Hardening Formula, Cutex Twist and Lock Pump Nail Polish Remover, Freeman Soothing Facial Scrub and finally, L’Oreal Telescopic Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black.

I love love love the cuticle remover so this will serve as my back up bottle. My total for all these products was a little bit more than $16. This is not bad, considering that the mascara is about $9 and change.

I’ll check again later next week to see if these prices drop even further, but I am doubtful anything worthwhile will be left!


>First post, last venture?

>I think this is my final attempt at a public blog. In the last 2 years I have tried and failed. More like I have failed to update and find followers. However this time, I am going to really try my hardest since I found something I really enjoy writing about – nail polish.

Yes, there are tons of nail polish blogs out there so I can’t really say how this is going to be any different than any of those other blogs. All I can say is that I will try my hardest to make this fun.

In the last 9 months I have amassed quite a few nail polishes and have learned how to paint my nails better. I’m still learning, but definitely improving on my “skills”.

Hope you will join me.
