November was a No-Polish Buying Month. Somehow I still came out of the month with over 10 new polishes. This is largely because of polishes from magazines.
The first polish I ever got from a magazine was Nails Inc Motcomb Street with Glamour Magazine. I bought it because it looked like black. Turns out it’s a very deep navy blue, which was kind of annoying at the time. It took me a while to warm to the colour. But now I don’t mind it.
In fact, I’m pretty sure the first time I ever used it was during the 31 Day Challenge in September, despite the fact it had been in my collection since last Christmas!
The red polish I got with Cosmopolitan magazine in November. It’s called Star Spangled and it’s gorgeous but I hadn’t used it until I was thinking about this post! I used it for my gig nails last night – I’ll post later this week.
Like many others, I couldn’t resist getting all four special Nails Inc Polishes from the December issue of Glamour (which was out in November, eh?) They’re special one offs designed by Kate Spade. This is like a capsule nail collection all in one! You can do so much with gold, red, black and silver! I’m using these here and there – the colours themselves aren’t really all that special, I think. I was just sucked in by £2 for a magazine and a polish… Although I am now stuck with four magazines all the same.
Do you ever do that? Buy multiple copies of a magazine for the “free” thing and then wonder why you did it?
