No Buy July

Everyone I know is talking about whether they're doing or not doing "Dry July", where they abstain from alcohol for the entire month of July.

Well, I'm going on a "No Buy July".

There, I said it. I am not buying one more nail polish for the whole month of July.

Not one nail polish, nail accessory, not even a nail file. With the exception of cuticle sticks which I'm really running low on.

The past week I have been out of control with my nail polish habit. Granted, I'm relatively new to the nail polish world and since discovering nail blogs a month or so ago, I've gone nuts for different polishes, styles and designs.

But since 26th June, I have bought:
  • Cherry Culture - Milani 3D Holographics polishes (the whole set), a couple of Sinful Colours polishes, and a couple of LA Colours polishes
  • Coastal Scents - Some glitters and holo pigments to franken with
  • OC Nail Art - A biiiig Konad kit
  • Beauty Joint - Kleancolour polishes and Cherimoya Crackles
  • eBay - Random nail stuff like a dotting tool, brushes, plastic palette for frankening and 50 little pots of glitter
That's enough!!!!! That is it, I'm puting my foot down and July is now NO BUY!!!! When I add up how much I've spent on nails since 26th June, it's approximately $350. Gulp. And I still want to start my OPI, China Glaze and Colour Club collections.

Damn, it's a good thing I have a well paying job now ...



  1. Good luck! I couldn't do a no buy month lol. I really do have a problem. Good thing I still haven't found a good seller for Zoyas...I want the whole summer collection!

  2. It's going to be rough :( But I'm hoping that I'll keep myself amused with all the packages I'll be getting over the next week and a half or so!
    Ooh I know where to get Zoya's.. I won't tell if you don't want me to tho :P

  3. Lol, it won't matter unless it's online. So do tell! I'm already drooling over the autumn/winter collection.

  4. :)

    Yeah it looks awesome eh? That dark green jade colour looks amazing!!!

  5. I could abstrain from alcohol, but I don't think I can do a "No buy July".

    But then you'll be getting presents (as in deliveries) all month, so you can do it!!

    Ps. damn you for listing sellers! I'm gonna want to check all of them outttt
