Aqua Franken & Budget Haulage!!

This is a aqua franken I made well over a year ago. I sadly do not remember the mixture 100%, but I do believe it was Sally Hansen Lime Lights + Sally Hansen Marine Scene + Sally Hansen White Tip + Sally Hansen Dimension. I'd say it's muted medium aquamarine shimmer. It does have some green and blue glitter mixed in but it hardly never shows up on the nail which is FINE. I actually prefer it this way! I named this one Grecian Waters because it reminded me of the beautiful color of the sea off the shores of Greece.

Today I did some major budget hauling! First I got this amazing haul from Jessika aka Jbrobeck on MUA or @jbrobs on Twitter. She is having a NP sale on LiveJournal and had some pricey polishes for great prices! She also threw in some extras which was very sweet. Thank you!

L-R: OPI DS Ruby, Revlon Crimson Sparkle, Orly Goth, Sinful Colors Vacation Time, Maybelline Red Aluminum, Purple Aluminum, Funky Fingers Red Glitter, Funky Fingers Silver Glitter

I also did some hauling at CVS. Let me tell you guys if you do not have a CVS card please get one. I know CVS doesn't have the selection that Walgreens does but if you have their Extra Care Card you can really do some major saving. I bought the following things some for regular price, but some for 75% off. I also purchased some other non-beauty items and used some coupons.

L-R: Milani Buzz Worthy Gloss Bee-utiful, Milani Buzz Worhty Goss Be-Mine, Orly Wild Wisteria, Borghese Dolce Vita Fuchsia, Borghese Siena Gold, Sally Hansen Blew Me Away

I got $8 Borghese nail polish 75% off making them $2 (not all colors but quite a few) also Milani Buzz Worthy Lip Gloss originally $7 75% off making them $1.75! I also picked up the Orly reg. price, Sally Hansen reg. price, and some other non beauty products. If I paid full price for all of this plus the non beauty products I would of been paying $45, but with these sales and some CVS coupons I ended up only paying $17.50. I ended up saving $27.50! This excited me greatly! Can you tell? I am over the moon! Sales and bargains are great!

I also got these two Wet n' Wild polishes at Albertsons BOGO free!

L-R: Blue Moon & Bijou Blue

As you can see I had a good day! I really suggest looking up drugstores weekly savings, getting a CVS card and using their coupons or any other coupons for that matter. If you're interested in budget beauty buying like I mentioned before I really recommend the following bloggers..

That's it for today! Happy Shopping!

P.S. I just got my package of Ulta3 nail polishes I won from More Nail Polish's giveaway! Thank you so much! I will be swatching these and the ones I mentioned above this weekend.

  3. Thanks! This is probably the first time I really took advantage of sales and coupons offered by CVS. I am kicking myself now for not doing this in the past!

  4. I love your franken, and the name is so cute :) I've been seeing so many great frankens lately, it's giving me the urge to create some of my own colors!
