On sale with a coupon!!!

I know I've broken major fashion rules today by wearing yoga pants, a t-shirt, and flip-flops to my marketing test this morning and then Wal-Mart and CVS runs but hey, it's Halloween so why not dress up all bummy like everyone else does in my 'hood.

Wal-Mart had a ton of pedicure stuff by Sally Hansen including a new Just Feet collection. I picked up their Ingrown Nail File & Cuticle Pusher as well as a Foot Rasp to do some exfoliating of icky calluses. I also grabbed a bottle of Onyx Professionals 100% Acetone which is fabulous for removing both dark and glitter polishes. I decided to try the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails - Hard As Wraps so we'll see how that goes when I try it out this afternoon and acrylic generally makes nail color last longer especially when I've had the fake ones.

My original plan at CVS was to just pick up a bottle of Sunsilk's Anti-Flat Weightless Volumizing Creme but I ended up looking around the beauty aisles and getting "caught up in the moment" but still being very wise with my purchases since I bought all sale items and I had coupons (my mother taught me well) and CVS extra bucks, I ended up with all these goodies for about $15! Bargain shopper extraordianaire but I bought things I could really need!

MegaSlicks Lip Color Retractable Pencil - # 671 Passion Fruit Pink. I'm a sucker for bright pink lips with nude shadow on eyes but I also needed a bright pink lip to wear for my 80's chick/Cyndi Lauper Halloween costume this evening (yes, same concept as Saturday's costume but I'm going to wear a different shirt over the leopard dress and I'll actually have time today to do my eyeshadow all crazy). My beloved Clinique Colour Surge Lipstick in Extreme Pink has gone missing in action but I'm hoping it's just hiding in one of my purses, so I needed some sort of hot pink lip color on the cheap and so far I'm pretty impressed and it doesn't feel too heavy!

Wet 'n Wild Ultimate Touch Pressed Poweder - I tend to buy cheap pressed powder that I keep in my purse's makeup bag because I usually end up shattering it somehow (I ruined a very nice MAC Blot Powder that way).

Wet 'n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color - #11088 Vintage Red - I normally tend to shy away from dark colored polishes but since they're all the rage this season, I figured I'd try something affordable in the 97 cent range so if I hated it, I wouldn't be out a ton of cash. The color I picked is a limited edition but it's a dark reddish black with some purple tones. It's drying on my thumb right now and I had to use three coats to get an even, uniform color but I've noticed that with a lot of dark nail polishes. Wet 'n Wild also had this gorgeous silvery black shade in their Crystalic Nail Color but I that it might be a bit too goth for my tastes nowadays so we went with the dark and chic instead. While testing everything out and typing this out, the Vintage Red color also looks great with one coat of it and one coat of New York Color's Nail Glossies - #233 Plum Tart (which I picked up at Target a couple weeks ago) on top to form a dark pinky-purple metallic color! I've always been one of these crazy girls who ends up mixing nail polish colors together. So I've now got some options with the two colors I've bought for the fall season.

Since CVS had Sally Hansen lip and nail products at buy one, get one half off (if only I had known that at Wal-Mart but they had a better selection of pedicure goods there so it balances). I found a two-for-one package of their Lip Inflation glosses which had one regular clear gloss and one Sheer Blush color. I'm really liking the the Sheer Blush color and it feels good on your lips but not so tingly that you feel your mouth is on fire! I also picked up their Problem Cuticle Remover and Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil since I'm going to give myself much needed manicure and pedicure this afternoon. I also picked up a La Cross Laser Shaper Nail File since emery boards do no justice except in emergency situations!

Now I'm off to D.I.Y. pedicure and manicure and then get my Halloween on!
