My new nail polish obsession

I don't know what it is, maybe it's because it's warming up and I've had a particularly awful winter, but all of a sudden, I'm obsessed with nail polish.

Seriously, you have no idea how weird this is for me. I NEVER wear nail polish. I have these tiny nails which I like to keep short since I'm pretty hard on them, so it just seems a bother to put polish on them. I've gotten a manicure maybe 3 times my whole life (sad, I know, but like I said - TINY fingernails). If I ever did wear polish, it would be very pale pinks, nudes or clear coats. Nothing fancy or attention grabbing.

So I have no idea what's going on, but I've bought more new polishes in the past 3 weeks than I have in my whole life. Eeek. And they are nothing like what I used to wear. I npw have a couple bottles of dark purple, some dark, dark reds and one shiny copper-y shade. I was in the drug store last week and am now obsessed with these bright blues and greens (dark I've gotten the hang of...neon - not so much).

Plus, as I work in a very corporate environment, I'm not sure how well neon nails would go over...

But I guess it's good I'm venturing into new territory as that just means more reviews for Cinnamon Kitten! I blame the lovely beauty bloggers I've been hanging around, online and on Twitter for encouraging this growing habit.

My nail polish collection before 3 weeks ago:


My nail polish collection now (do polishes multiply like rabbits? I'm beginning to fear that this is so...)



Since my hubby is back in school, our budget is pretty tight these days, so I'm only letting myself buy new polishes when I can find them on sale. But I'm really enjoying building my collection! Keeping my limited budget in mind - what do you recommend that I "must have" in my new polish collection?

I hear Sally Hansen has these rench manicure nailpolish pen things that are awesome.

Love the "rabbits" you got hun. I don't buy nail polish full price often, except the extra-ordinary China Glaze (LE) :) So yeah, watch out for sales

I agree with Suziesaurus, the Sally Hansen pens are pretty handy. They're quick and easy, and great to pop in your purse too if you get crazy over occasional nicks. I have a couple and noticed their price was just rolled back at Walmart. I also just picked up a new Wet & Wild in a fabulous bubblegum pink, regular price $1.97 Walmart.

I have the same obsession. We all have these guilty pleasures. By the way, if you're looking for free coupons on your health, beauty and wellness products or clearance sale on your favorite brands, you'll surely find it here. Thanks and more power!

Suziesaurus - time to give those a try!

Halifax - Yes, I still partly blame you! :)

West Coast Jess - Thanks for the heads up about Wal-mart! I've been watching Pharma-Plus & Shoppers for sales, but I definitely think I should check out Wal-mart too. $1.97 - that's a great price!
