Hey everybody! I’m back from vacation! Actually, I was back a couple of days ago but I was getting back into the swing of things at home and at work and didn’t really have the time or energy to post until now. My vacation was so relaxing, and it has been difficult to come back. I am fortunate enough to be heading out again next week. A long weekend in NYC centered around the Justin Timberlake/Jay-Z Legends of the Summer concert at Yankee Stadium!! I am SO EXCITED!!
Anyway, enough about my personal life…how about some makeup excitement?! Last month in my Birchbox I received a Color Club polish called Reign in Spain. It’s a bright pink/coral color that is perfect for summer, and I really love it. My review and photo can be viewed here. I decided I wanted to use some of my Birchbox points to purchase more, but when I went to place my order I realized that it is only available as part of the Wanderlust Collection in a set of mini bottles. I don’t need or want any of the other colors so I decided not to buy it.
Cut to last week, I was out shopping with my mom and sister and had pretty much forgotten about the whole thing. We decided to check out the new store 5 Below that opened in Dayton (my home town) just last month. It was my first time in the store…it’s interesting. They have a whole section with makeup and nail polish that is very inexpensive. The nail polish was 3 for $5! I was looking for white and blue because I wanted to do a patriotic mani –which I did attempt and failed miserably. I blame the humidity. ANYWAY…I happened to find a color that looked pretty similar to the Color Club polish I was coveting. The color is called Guava and the brand is Fresh Paint. I haven’t had a chance to use it yet, but in the bottle the look pretty much identical. I am so excited about my great buy!
Have you ever been to 5 Below? I definitely could see myself stocking up on cheap polish there in the future as long as I like this Fresh Paint. Such a good deal!
