No willpower

Hi Kids! I hope the day finds everyone well.
The start of my day was a disaster. :(
After going to the restaurant to pick up my paycheck, I stopped by Sally's for some much needed supplies...Liquid Bonder, Bonding Powder, boards and blocks.
To get a grip on my spending, I've been on a low-buy. Yesterday I ran into Kmart to get my son oil for his truck and walked out with these;













Several days ago, I picked up a back-up of Rad Purple, 2 Milani holos, the entire line of Love My Nails, Chromes (for fauxnading), 2 Maybelines (pink hearts, red hearts), a Nicole, several new Pure Ice...and just before that haul- the one I posted in my Blog.

And today, I got everything on my supply list above and these;













It could have been worse...I initially had the entire Orly Sweet, Orly Metal Chic, and ChG, Up & Away collections in my basket.
I can try to make myself feel better by saying that at least had *some* discipline today...I put back all the polishes I wasn't *absolutely* crazy about. But that does not fix the fact that I'm not supposed to be buying like this.
I've been wanting to set aside some $ so Thriszha from Fab Ur Nails and I can get some fauxnad plates. I feel just terrible that I can't seem to curb my spending.

On my day off, I had to re-arrange my nail station for expansion;


























Pathetic.

Your nail station is my dream room!  You are my new hero.  Sorry you're having buyers remorse :( I hate when I can't stop hauling, too.  I just spent a ridiculous amount at Nubar and Nfu Oh. Oh, and ebay.  And Konad.  Ugh Crap.

Great haul, I recently had to reorangize for more polish too!

I love your nail polish station! It is like an art studio and very inspiring! I wish I had that much polish :)

I see what you mean...time for an intervention! I totally understand your obsession/addiction and mine is outta control from my own perspective. I just keep telling myself I am oversaturated with color...and I'm trying to stick to favorite brands. It doesn't help to be looking at all the new pretties coming out all the time either. 
Maybe take a break from viewing and do some swatching for your own blog. :)  I do love your setup and if I had the space, I'd love to have something like it...maybe?
I'm saving for a trip now.

I'm meant to be on a low buy too until April, but Nubar just released the Fortress collection, and I want to order some Nubars, since I've never tried them. Also, American Apparel just re-released their polishes. Damn it. Isn't it hard?
I know I've said this but I LOVE your room.

HOLY CRAP.

When I said 'HOLY CRAP' it was to how many nail polishes you have. *jealous*

nihrida said...

WOW! Your nail polish station totally rocks! I know what you mean about the low buy... I have no control when it comes to money either. (Un)fortunately I'm broke and I can't spend. =)))
Can't wait to see your next manicure! :*

Nice polishes you bought.  I know the feeling of trying not to buy any polishes.  I've really tried not to buy much for awhile.  So far I'm doing pretty good but I'm starting to weaken!  That was another reason I tried cutting back on reading nail blogs.  If I didn't see anything I didn't want anything.  But I'm back reading again so it's getting dangerous.

I know the feeling...I've only been able to make it through half a month without buying anything. That's pathetic. But, as lond as I got the money, I say it's okay. :D/D:

Your nail station is the best in the world. I'm jealous, I don't even have one.
