Well... at least for now. We'll see how long I can last.
Honestly, I have been pretty successful. Partially due to bad luck (I had various illnesses in the lead-up to the holiday season) and maybe a bit of good luck, it turns out I hadn't bought any makeup purchases since ... October maybe? I can only say I didn't buy any makeup cos I did buy some beauty products, but only as needed. And I bought some clothes, and shoes... which weren't needed. I'm only human. *shrug*
Did I mention it was my birthday a couple weeks ago? Yeah, well that and the fact that Lena White was having a sale on OPI lead me down the path to my first gratuitous beauty purchase this year.
A little aside: I haven't been using much nail polish lately as I've had a finger infection that is still clearing up. In anticipation of being able to wear nail polish again, nail polish seemed like the perfect treat.
Also, did I mention there's a January sale on OPI at Lena White? Yeah, that helped!
Especially as I really wanted a couple of polishes from OPI's Holland collection (Spring/Summer 2012), and why not pick up one not on sale, from the Germany collection (Autumn 2012).
The colours I bought (from left to right):
- Gouda Gouda Two Shoes
- Wooden Shoe Like To Know?
- Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!
I can't wait to try them. Sadly that won't be for another month at least.
But I do recommend the sale, especially since they have my favourite greens on sale: Don't Mess With OPI and Jade is the New Black.
Actually I might be tempted back to try Avoplex High Intensity Hand and Nail Cream. Ah, how much money is in my account again? ;)
