Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish Haul

L-R: Gilty Pleasure, Commander in Chic, Plum's the Word

I posted this haul on Twitter last week, but it's only now that I've come to blog about it. I made a quick trip to the Walgreens on my lunch hour to check on these babies. I bought my first Sally Hansen nail polish two weeks before, and it was on sale for less than two bucks at CVS. When I saw the regular price at Walgreens, I balked. Almost eight freakin' bucks for drugstore nail polish?? You gotta be kiddin' me! I also bought some other items along with this haul like Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, and even the cashier was aghast. "Wow, $30 for 5 items?". Yes, sad, isn't it? It is sadder to think that I couldn't wait for the sale to come again, since the colors are so damn pretty.

Gilty Pleasure is the kind of old matte gold I'd like to have wear to pair up with my matte gold strappy heels. Love this color, and the metallic finish is very festive. Commander in Chic is an almost dupe (albeit this one is a bit darker) of Sephora by OPI in Metro Chic. Lastly, Plum's The Word had to be mine, as I love purples and plums. I also like the flat head of the brush, as you can control the amount of product in the brush so you don't get too much. This prevents product pooling around the cuticles.

I can't wait to swatch these. Stay tuned!

I bought some of these too! LOVE LOVE - Gray for Gray is my fave. And I love the matte shades because they do remind me of Metro Chic in which I love so much!

Sass- Gray for Gray sounds yummy, I'm loving grays too. I am looking at Wet Cement in their Xtreme Wear line. Yay for Metro Chic! :)
