I never thought it could take me so long to spend $6!

It’s a long story…my insurance requires me to get all my prescriptions at CVS – I have no choice as a consumer. I hate CVS, but mostly because of poor experiences at the location by my old house. This new location is actually not bad. The one benefit to filling prescriptions at CVS is the $5 in ExtraBucks for every 10 prescriptions, although I vastly preferred Target’s old system of 5% coupons, but that went away when CVS ate the Target Pharmacy. ANYWAY, with all my surgeries, I am up to my 3rd $5 in ExtraBucks, plus an additional $1 from I don’t even know where. I had made a trip a few weeks ago, birthday shopping for the bestie – but forgot to use it. So I went back….an wandered around the store for nearly an hour and could not find a single damn thing to buy. BUT…

…BUT then, I saw some very unique nail polishes in the bins by the checkout. Frida Kahlo Nail Polish! There was a red, a yellow and a blue – I picked the blue – “FKN.37” – a sort of dusty turquoise, really. What an unartistic polish name though, especially considering the work that went into the fantastic bottle art.

This is two coats of “FKN.37” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. The polish was on the thick side, but the brush was very good quality and gave a lot of control. I might have been able to go with one coat, but it was just a bit streaky, so I went with two.

I don’t know that the polish was worth $8.49 – but definitely worth $2.49.
