Jessica Glitterati & a promise I am making to myself

Jessica Glitterati  is a dense iridescent glitter, it is mainly copper/gold/red, with a strong green/yellow colour shift ( yes, i copied most of that from here). What i liked most about this polish is that at two coats, the glitter disbursement was perfect, meaning I didn't have to fill in any areas that didn't have enough glitter. I will definitely need 2 to 3 coats of Top Coat with this..... It was a bumpy finish after 1 thick coat of TC. I layered this over 1 perfect coat of Wet n Wild Black Creme.

The promise I am making to myself is to not pay more than $3.99 CAD per bottle of polish for an as-yet-un-defined amount of time.  I have kept myself in check over the years by purchasing the bulk of my polishes from the dollar stores and sticking to N.Y.C., Wet n Wild, Sally Hansen X-treme wears etc, these are brands that are easily accessible to me, and can usually be found for under 5 bucks each. These are kick-ass brands with a gazillion beautiful polishes, I have many of these polishes and have dozens more on my to purchase list.

 There is over 200 bottles of polish waiting for me in stores that are under the price point of $3.99 CAD. My list of polishes to purchase grows almost every week, There seems to be an endless supply of beautiful in-expensive polish, with new colours and beautiful finishes showing up at discount department stores and drug stores every week.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because I want a record of me stating that I CAN and WILL keep myself in check and try to only purchase polishes that are $3.99 CAD or less & only share things on my blog that reflect that  price point.

In the future I hope to ONLY share polishes/mani's with products that are $3.99 CAD or less,  and try to share products that have a price point of $5.00 CAD or less. I am a huge fan of off-beat dollar-store nail polishes and products. I plan to only purchase and model nail polishes and nail related products that can be found in Canada for $3.99 or less.

This doesn't include multi-bottle nail polish sets, top coat, stamping plates.... etc, stuff like that. It doesn't mean I will never order stuff on-line; just that I will try not to - even though I really, really, REALLY want to. I want to try and be happy and satisfied with things that I can purchase in a real brick and mortar store. So far I have stuck to this (  for almost 2 years!!!!! ) and I know I can maintain this and achieve my goals.

Whew! I probably need a better worded personal nail polish purchasing mission statement that is , but whatever. I wrote it down and I wish to stick to it.

I found this lovely Jessica polish, along with is equally glitter packed blue brother, Platinum Wishes at Winners in Wpg for $6.99. Winners is a Canadian store like T.J. Maxx that has a mish-mash of 'designer' products for less. They had quite a selection of polish's at the time I found this, some Nubar, and lots of KleanColor multi sets of polish.. I left the blue iridescent glitter and only picked up this one ( proud!!!! ) I think I will get alot of use from this polish for fall 2013.

This is the best part of this polish..... in dark or weird lighting the iridescent glitter pieces do their best work!

I couldnt get my camera to pick up the green flashes from this polish

That Jessica polish looks like it is worth much more than 4 or 5 bucks.I really admire your mission. We should all be as thrifty as you, Dee. :-)

I like the idea a lot, but I can't commit to it, as I always have impulsive buys at Winners (normally $5 and up) and just gave in to Ninja Polish too ($9 price range) lol
