Hi, my name's Selina and I'm addicted to nail polish

You know how they say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem? Well can we, perhaps, just pretend that's the only step? So I admit I'm addicted to buying nail polish, you all pat me on the back for taking such a huge step towards recovery and then we all go back to how we were and I keep buying nail polish? Yeah? Excellent. As you were then.

So here's some more polish that I bought. Back when I had that little problem.

Anna Sui Number 126. Obviously I had to buy it because it was super cheap on TradeMe. And it's pretty.

Lancome Number 297. This one was also super cheap on TradeMe. And it's yellow.

Ahhh, right. Now these weren't super cheap on TradeMe. Although some of them were on special so that's pretty good, yeah? But, you see, what happened was, I was at the mall buying a present for a friend and these polishes just accidentally bought themselves with my credit card. Darndest thing huh? Anyway left to right: Rimmel Deliciously Dark, Blue Me Away and Go Cobalt, Max Factor Ultra Blue and some really cute little nail templates for painting designs on your nails in wave, skull and crossbones, butterfly and pawprint designs.

Also, something I didn't buy. These came from my wonderful friend Ewa who sent me the Bourjois So Laque polishes:

Left to right Maybelline Matte in Matte Rose, Butterfly Collection Number 244 and Delia Glamour Number 5. And at front a Paloma lip gloss.

I've seen the Maybelline Mattes around on a few blogs and been quite keen to try them out because unlike the current mattes from O.P.I. which are just too chalky matte for my liking the Maybelline ones (which were released some time ago) have more of a lustrous satin finish which is quite lovely. All the other items are brands I've never heard of so I'm very excited to try them out.

So there we go. Oh and did I mention that I just ordered a whole heap of polishes from Overall Beauty because they were having a massive sale on BB Couture polishes for their newsletter subscribers?

Oh dear, I do have a problem don't I?


  1. It's funny because something very similar happened to me the other day. I was innocently browsing the Nails Inc website and all of sudden things mysteriously appeared in the basket and then even more mysteriously checked themselves out?? Seriously, someone needs to do something about these credit cards that have minds of their own. It's us that are left to deal with the damage...;)
    Can't wait to see swatches of all your new things!

  2. I think it's a conspiracy on the part of the credti card companies. They have the techology you know!

  3. I think we all have the same addiction. That's why there are nail blogs with posts filled with pretty pictures. Then there are the nail polish commenters of which I am one. My collection of polish has increased so much since I've been reading. The same thing happens to me when I find polish sites. There are way to many.

  4. So many blogs, so many pretty pictures, so much nail polish I HAVE to get!
