Cheap Ass or Frugal?

I, simply, like to think I got a steal when I find something (I want) on sale or clearance…

Case in point: Sonia Kashuk’s ‘Starry Night’.Β  (Yes, that name took 3 months on the Copywriter’s desk to be developed. πŸ˜• )

Poor ‘Starry Night’. It got marked down 3 times before it got purchased. I don’t know why because, despite it’s name, it really isn’t a lame color.

‘Starry Night’ is a really, really, really inky purple with silvery-lavender micro-glitter.Β  Sorry, I don’t know who Sonia Kasnuk is. Surely, a famous designer or makeup artist spotlighted by Target. I purchased ‘Starry Night’ because of the price beautiful color.

There was tip wear after one day. I did a base with 3 coats of polish. I topped it off with Seche Clear.

Seriously, I do like the color a lot. I’m going to save this one and work with it again in 5 months. Why 5 months? Why, it will be Halloween!!!

In the meantime, here’s a photo of a magnolia flower from my backyard tree…

  • It's a steal! Great find, it's a gorgeous color (: -I can't wait for Halloween myself

  • OMGosh…Halloween is in 5 months? *sigh* How is that even possible?! That's a pretty color and a not so pretty name. I've never picked up any of that brand because I refuse to pay whatever price they're asking for it. But, for $1.24, I might give it a glance. πŸ™‚

  • Lovely color. I'd go with frugal but cheap assed works too depending on who I'm talking with. And I would have been drawn to it for the *ahem* bottle color also. At least at first. πŸ™‚

  • Looks like a great color! You can't go wrong for the price! Summers not even here yet, you can't be talking Halloween! I need some summer soon!

  • Y

    heehee i love finding clearances!!

  • @Forever '92 I can't wait for Halloween because that will mean the heat is over in Florida. πŸ™‚

    @Megan I think if you have kids that there is more a dread to the holidays. It makes Moms really busy! I agree about not picking this one up without the clearance price.

    @LWTT We think alike!! πŸ˜‰

    @Peach It's 92 today; 93 yesterday. Summer is just cranking up here in Central Florida.

    @Y I head right for the clearance aisle after I look at what's new. πŸ™‚

  • For that price, I'll take it and run. I'll pray for the best that I won't want to franken the hell out of it cause it turned out to be something not even worth what I paid. Good thing it doesn't look something in that category. πŸ˜€ I liek it on you.

  • Very pretty!!! What a great price too πŸ™‚

  • 2kittypolishnbags I have some stuff lined up to franken but it doesn't include this cutie. I'd be interested in what you could franken this as.

    @rmcandlelight Thanks! The cost just sweetened the deal. Under $2? I'll try just about anything.:)

  • Nice colour, and wow, that really is a steal! I can't believe it survived all those markdowns.

  • @SwatchAndLearn I think that's why I coveted it so much because no one else had nabbed it. I really do like the color.
