I thought I'd start doing a monthly wrap up of my beauty buys. I've tried and failed at doing no-buys already, but I've settled into a "low-buy" routine that I can keep to. The self-imposed rules are: two polish purchases a month, not to exceed six bottles total, but restrained/minor drugstore purchases do not count towards the limit.
My first purchase of November was Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily. I cannot tell you how hard I was lemming this polish. This was the polish that made me pay attention to Rescue Beauty Lounge. They are expensive, yes, but this polish... oh my wow! And my order included one of those reusable shopping bags!

As you've already seen, I gave Essie a second chance using my CVS Reward coupons--can't say no to nearly free polish! I picked up As Gold As It Gets, Nothing Else Metals, Blue Rhapsody, and Sand Tropez.
Last, but certainly not least, China Glaze For Audrey. This polish I have wanted since I first discovered this nail polish world. It'd been sold out everywhere I'd ever looked for it. My hopes of getting this were abandoned. Imagine my surprise when the China Glaze display at Ulta was totally full, and had THREE full rows of this beauty! I gushed over it to my fiance and did a little happy dance! Someone must have found some stock hanging out somewhere! Lucky day!
So, for a low-buy, that's not too bad... imagine what it'd be like if I didn't have budget restrictions.... Oofda.
