I think I'm in love...

 with Miracle Cure from Sally Hansen!! I've always had a major problem with splitting peeling nails; I tried supplements but didn't notice any difference after months of taking them, so I am really excited that this little bottle of goodness actually seems to be working.  I almost didn't get it but my local Priceline had a bonus gift if you spent over $29; and I'm a total sucker for that kind of marketing.  I am so glad I did get it because at $19.95 this stuff is a bargain!! It said 50% stronger nails in 3 days on the box, and to be completely honest I was initially dismissive of this claim, as I have previously bought treatments/polish that promised smiliar results only to be utterly disappointed.  This however is living up to box.. no peeling nails, no cracking polish; no bubbles..<3 <3 <3
Day 3
Sally Hansen Bonus Gift
I am also using Sally Hansen Diamond Strength as a Top Coat (which came in the bonus gift) which is also fantastic! Only minor tip wear and that's from working 3 solid days in retail.. usually by now I would have had chipped; cracked ugly polish! So I am in awe of this staying power, and strengthening capacity!! As a top coat it great I can't find a flaw, it dries quickly, no bubbles, nice and shiny, and the polish is still on my nails!! <3 <3 <3
To make up my total SH purchase to $29 I also bought Xtreme wear in 13 Celeb City and some more polish remover. I'm not sure if all of the Xtreme wear range smells of tinsel as it dries (you know that smell tinsel has in the xmas section..) or just this one because of it's metallic nature.  Seeing as I'm talking odour; the remover had a perfumey notes to it, not floral or particularly feminine, but pleasant.. also it removed polish like lightning!
Priceline also had these super adorable mini Bourjois polishes, and at 2 for $5 I bought all the colours my local store had.  They are the catalog item that caught my attention and allowed me to discover my new favourite, as the wear on my current mani has lasted soo much longer than I anticipated i haven't yet swatched these babies
BOURJOIS mini 3mL polish
 I was super happy with my goodies and rushed merrily along to the counter only to be confronted a line; that's when I noticed the super sale bin!! Sifting through broken bronzer palates and other decimated remains of make-up items I spotted them... L'oreal polish for $1.77!!!! I grabbed the remaining colours, all 3 a black base with different coloured shimmer..once again I have yet to properly swatch these.  I would have to say that this has been my best/luckiest shopping adventure in a long time.
