How I Went In No Buy July

I did it!

I made it through No Buy July! I didn't think I could resist buying polish for a whole month but It got much easier as time went on. I didn't even buy the China Glaze - Bohemian collection like I thought I would. I decided they weren't duochromey enough.

You may be wondering why there is a picture of nail polish in this post if I successfully completed No Buy July. Well.. my best friend went to Europe and brought me back some polish souvenirs. They were gifts so technically I didn't buy any polish in July.
From left to right: 
Yves Rocher - Bleu Nuit (France)
Yves Rocher - Violet Electrique (France)
RARE Nails - Thief (Bought in Spain but made in France)
Astra - 35 (Italy)
Korres - Ultra Violet (Greece)
Yves Rocher -  Mauve Leger (France)
Mavala - Aquamarine (Switzerland)
Deborah Milano - Knock Out Violet (Italy)
Deborah Milano - Emerald Bijoux (Italy)

*Edited to add countries

I can't remember which countries she bought these all from but maybe she can comment and remind me, she reads my blog. Hi Mardi! :)

Now I'm off to buy some of the polishes from the piCture pOlish Blog Fest to celebrate!

  5. I ended up buying stamping plates & 1 clearance polish at sally's and bought some sinful.colors on clearance (before knowing their stealing issue) but that was all I tried hard not to but I can't resist sales! Lol

  9. Congrats!) I also was disappointed by Bohemian collection. I'm thinking of buying some Nubar duochromes. They're great, though I don't like their colors much.
