So the $1 MC for Nicole by OPI really got me excited. I have never bought a full size Nicole by OPI before. Too expensive for me. $7 a bottle? Forget it. Not this girl. I mean, it has to be a very weak moment, a crazy unique color. Well, I thought, if I'm starting off $1 less, I knew I could make a deal somehow.
Since I've been on "vacation" so to speak for a couple of weeks now, I'm running low on face wash. I'm not super happy with the one I have right now so I'm ready to make a switch. It's a Biore shower one. It does a great cleaning job, just too good of a job to use everyday. So I did my research of course and found out that the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Surge and Energizing Cleansing pads were both on sale and when you bought them together, you receive a $5 Target GC. I had $5 MC for the power cleanser and $2 off for the refills. OOP I paid $11 something for the both of them and got back $5 GC making them like $3 a piece. Not bad.
But of course I turned around and used the $5 GC on 2 Nicole by OPI polishes along with my 2 $1/1 MCs making them $3.50 a piece. I grabbed one from the Bieber collection, One Less Lonely Glitter. Which is a fun light purple glitter. Love it! I have 4 coats on my middle finger right now. I also picked up, It's not me, it's blue. In the store under the bright lights it looked like a dark bluish purple. Maybe I imagined that after I read the name. Then I got it home and looked at it and I was worried that it was just like that LE Revlon. But swatching it on my thumb it is a glittery graphite. I'm not under the best of light right now so I can't wait to do a full mani. Absolutely love it already and I will be wearing it a lot I'm sure.
They both have completely different brushes. The purple glitter bomb from the Bieber the One Less Lonely Girl Collection has a very wide "perfect stroke" brush. And the other a very thin, Orly type brush. They are both suitable for the formulas. Both polishes dried pretty fast. I applied thin coats and they were dry to the touch in about 2 minutes. All in all, I'm pretty happy with my choices and I'm going to want more for sure.
Oh I also used up my free Ecotools coupons. I grabbed the retractable kabuki brush for my mom. She was needing a new one. Hope she likes it! And I found a Bambo Bronzer brush for me. OMG so soft!!!
So that's that for now. I am heading to CVS this week because I have $10 in Beauty Club ECBs to print out. Gotta keep rollin' em!
Hope you are enjoying the week and stay out of the hot sun! I'm going to wash my face...
