{Lovely Lacquer: Part II}

One of the positives of knowing a cosmetologist is the ability to go to select beauty supply stores where her special license is necessary to make a purchase. An added bonus is that these stores carry newer products at a discounted rate you just can't beat. So, since we are heading into flip flop season...I came up with the somewhat legitimate excuse to go on a shopping spree for my nails. To say I landed in OPI Heaven is an understatement; my friend's little 5 year old and I had a blast picking out nail polishes & creams...and even after filling up our basket & checking out, I had to force myself to leave the store before I could turn around and pick out anything else.

A Few Favorites of the Day:
Do You Lilac It?

Lucky Lucky Lavender

In the Spotlight - Pink

Charged Up Cherry

Mani/Pedi Cucumber Massage

So long dry cuticles, crusty nail polish & debating what color to use at your mani/pedi appointment! For a few bucks a pop, my nail color collection is expanding rapidly. Perhaps my newfound supply of nail care products will lead to something bigger...say, Chateau de Victoria: Nail Care Spa? Okay okay, I'll quit while I'm ahead...but if you're looking for a great deal on nail products (or beauty products in general), ask around to see if you know someone who can help you save! No one needs to dish out lots of green for the little things in life that pamper us :)
