Hello all! It’s been about 6 months since I last posted anything! I’m a lazy blogger (how can I hope to build any type of following?) I solemnly swear not to let my life overwhelm me so much that I cannot do things I actually enjoy! That said, let’s get to it.
This is a mini post really (I just NEEDED to post anything to get back onto the blogger-train). Its about some Essie nail polish (ah-hem..lacquer) I purchased from a drug store yesterday.
As anyone into nail polish knows Essie can tend to be one of the more expensive well known brands. They make good polish, have great colours and I suppose for that reason continue to be leading brand. I have been trying to start an Essie collection for almost 2 years and have scoured many a drug store in search. But the price always stumps me! Why pay $8.50(US) for this bottle of polish when I can get as many as 3 in another brand for that money? As a poor party girl I need to make every dollar count! So I would walk away with nothing each and every time.
I was given a bottle as a gift last Christmas and in a moment of weakness purchased a bottle myself a couple months( $9US) ago bringing my grand total to 2! Not much of a collection.
However yesterday I walked into this local drugstore (that I hadn’t been in for like 2 years!) and boom! Essie polishes selling for the equivalent of $6(US). Now this might not seem like a HUGE difference…. $6 vs $8.50 but for me it makes the difference between buying 1 polish and purchashing 3 or 4 at once. It’s that much more reasonable. I saved $10US in total which could buy me another polish or some lip balm or some half decent lunch or a cute top etc, you get the idea.
The moral of this post? Holding out to find a bargin almost always works out.
Sure you may feel a little cheap or even lame for not dropping the bucks on what you want when you want it, but remember most of us live life on a budget and throwing about cash like there’s no tomorrow is what helped trigger the debt crisis the entire western hemisphere continues to face (how’s that for food for thought?).
So yes I waited over 1 year but now I’m well on my way to solid Essie collection and I have money to spare! Thats how a poor party girl does it.
Look forward to more regular posts and have an awesome day!
