Mini Drugstore Haul

Okay so I’m especially excited about nails lately, seriously trying to break into the polish swatching business, like Scrangie, LOL!  As you can see I’ve gone a tad overboard on the nail finds w/ my mini drugstore haul.  Nail stuff is like accessories when your shopping for clothes, if you can’t find a  pair of pants or a shirt that you like, you can always buy some accessories, b/c you’ll find something for them to go with.  Nail products are the same way, you know at some point you will use it or find something for it to go with.  Also, I mean what better things to buy other than things that improve your overall look.

Now, to the specifics:

  • Nailene French Finish Nails
  • Sally Hansen Speed Shine 10 Day Top Coat
  • Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus
  • Milani Eyeshadows

I’m ridiculosuly excited about the Nailene nails, even though I haven’t worn fake nails since i was like 11.  I want to give my real nails a break, since that are looking too hot or doing too good w/ polish.  I’ll definitely be putting these nails through the ringer though, which means I’ll be looking at how long they last, if they chip(even though they’re supposed to be “chip proof”, if they are paintable, and if so how they look.  I’ve also never tried and Milani eye shadows, heard a lot about them, but have yet to purchase them until now, so we’ll see if they live up to the hype.  All the other stuff is kinda minor, but I’ll of course review it, even though I think most of it is about to be discontinued, or maybe a packaging change.

I got all of my products at CVS and Walgreen’s, and most were 50% or more off.  Can’t say I’m not patting myself on the back for scoring such good deals!
