I think I should just rename “Hello, Friday” to “Nail Polish Friday” or something… seriously, my addiction is getting to be pretty bad. Last week I went out to buy new thank-you cards, and next to the paper shop was a little cosmetics shop. I ended up scouring the bottom rack for the discontinued polishes. (I might have a problem, but I’m not totally insane.) I scored a few awesome OPI colors on sale because they aren’t being made anymore.

      No more nail polish! Not until I’ve actually used every color I have already. I’m just glad that my spending habits happen to be for something relatively inexpensive like nail polish, instead of shoes ;)

      On my hands: China Glaze’s “Fast Track” from the Hunger Games collection. I lovelovelove this color. I’m thinking of stocking up on a lifetime supply of bottles of this and “Dress Me Up,” because I don’t want to find myself without those two shades when CG discontinues them! OPI colors are: “I Want to Be A-Lone Star” (pearly grey, from the Texas collection); “Divine Swine” from the Muppet collection; “Sparrow Me the Drama” by the Pirates of the Caribbean collection; “I Juggle Men” (a sparkly topcoat); “Stranger Tides” (again, Pirates); and “Animal-istic.” I don’t know what I was thinking when I picked out “Sparrow Me” because the shade is far too cool for my skin tone!

      Happy Friday!


      I too have a nail polish addiction, but I try to only buy inexpensive ones ($3-$4 is my limit). For Christmas, my husband got me the Sephora by OPI Glimmer Wonderland set, which has 18 mini bottles of polish. Best. present. ever. He thought that it would end my addiction, though, but he was sadly mistaken.

      By the way, a good place to find marked-down polishes is Big Lots. The last couple of times I’ve been there, they’ve had Revlon polishes (which I think are really good) for $2 or so.

      Lauren – It’s true! The more I get, the more I want!! Thank you for the tip on Big Lots :)

      NOOOOOOO!!!!!! They’re discontinuing “I Want to Be A-Lone Star”?!?!?!?! That’s my new fav color. I’ve been wearing it since it came out and it’s so versatile. I love wearing it at the tip to french manicures b/c it’s understated but awesome.. :-(

      On a different note… love that you’re addicted to nail polish and I envy your collection.

      Love this! And I have been looking for Sparrow Me EVERYWHERE! So, if you don’t want it, I’ll totally buy it off you!

      Emily, it’s yours. I’ll contact you :)
      Liz, these So-and-So collections are always for a limited time. I went in to find Mermaid’s Tears from the Pirates Collection and was told that they were out because it was a discontinued color. Maybe you can still find a few copies online somewhere!?

      YES! That color on you is fabulous! Make sure you have a lifetime supply! ;-) Also – you really could rename this nail polish Friday. :) haha And you could experiment and do new fun things with your nails sometimes and show us how! Or just show us all the pretty colors you use. :) Love it! :) (And yes, there are worse things to be addicted to than nail polish – at least it’s under $10!) :)

      The Pirates title made me laugh. And yay Friday!
