Free Nail Polish?!

As the semester is winding down, and exam season is coming at me full force, I haven't had a lot of time to blog, let alone do much of anything else other than school work. So here I am with a super quick post! Last Wednesday between 5pm - 8pm, it was buy one nail polish, get one free at Shoppers Drug Mart. The advertisement had me at the word free... Being the huge nail polish junkie that I am, how was I supposed to turn down FREE nail polish...? 

I picked up four Essie polishes for $20.00! Essie polishes are regularly priced at $11.99, but were marked down to $8.99... & then I had the buy one, get one coupon.. That is a steal of a deal in my books! 

I picked up the shades, Smokin' Hot (a dark gray with a deep purple undertone), Mochachino (a taupey gray with shimmer), Bahama Mama (a warm, rich, creamy deep plum), and Fiji (creamy pale pink)! I have heard quite a bit about these shades, so I just had to pick them up and add them to my collection. 

Here is a mini Nail Of The Day: I just finished painting my nails with Smokin' Hot! Smokin' Hot was a part of the Winter 2010 Collection, but I don't follow nail polish collections too closely - If I like the colour, I'll buy it. The formula is super thick, creamy and easy to work with. I definitely could have gotten away with one coat, but as always, I did two. I think this colour is perfect for the fall and winter season!

What is your favourite Essie nail polish?


  1. I fully meant to go to this.... regretting the fact that I didn't!

    1. I literally ran to shopper's after my classes on wednesday, aha. I did not want to miss it!
