I Lost my Sally's Virginity!

I went to Sally's for the first time today and it was very exciting. They had OPI's for £9.99 and China Glaze's for £5.99 which is very expensive for a 15ml bottle of polish but I don't know if they retail at a similar price in the States.
I was on the lookout for some ASP Nail Whitening Paste which was recommended to me by Beata but it was £5.99 (which I knew before I went but I just wanted to go and see it!) so I ended up leaving without it but I did buy a monster (500ml) bottle of acetone which works out at half the price of buying a 50ml bottle each time in a pharmacy.

I'm trying to grow my nails a teeny bit longer and get them all at the same length but even as I type this, the nail on my ring finger is winding me up! I keep hitting all the wrong keys, especially caps lock instead of the A. I don't know how all you ladies do anything with such long nails!

  1. I've always had long nails so I guess its just something you get used to. Lucky you have OPI at Sally's...OPI is hard for me to get since they stopped selling on etailers. I have to drive an hour to get OPI and it costs $8.50. China Glaze is about $5.99 at Sally's here.

  2. Like Serena says, our Sally stores don't have OPI (Ulta does, though, and I'm lucky to work near one of those). At Sally here, one can buy a "Sally card" for $5/year and get coupons and discounts with it, so that helps lower the cost (though I'm sure they make it up in volume, since I at least have bought more polish since I got the card than before).

    There's a length beyond which I can't deal with my nails; it just feels wrong on the keyboard at a certain point and I have to file them back.

  3. my sally's doesn't carry OPI & NY sucks we don't even have ULTA :[
    i've seen drugstores like DR carry OPI's & they run for $8.50, too much for a bottle of polish imho.

  4. I am so in love with this mani! It's gorgeous!!

  5. This is awesome! I love the glint of HT peeking through underneath. Beautiful stamping. Loving the combo.

  6. Seems like the OPI's are just fairly expensive everywhere then. :(
    $8.50 works out at about £5.50 anyway - way too much for me to justify.

    Serena - Your nails are a really nice length. That's kind of what I'm aiming for :D.
    I heard about that etailers thing. It must be annoying. China Glaze's are a good price though.

    Karen - Haha, that's how they trick you in to buying more then!! I asked about the card here and the lady said it was for trade customers only :(
    I know what you mean. It's just this ring finger, argh!! Might have to file it down a bit in a minute.

    Kathy - I agree, $8.50 is too much. What are you referring to with NY and DR? I'm in the UK, so I don't know all the brands and stores. We don't have any Ulta's here (which I gather is a store :D)

    Thank you Brooke and Sarah!

    Jen - Thanks. Yeah, I like how the HT is really subtle when you use it on light colours.
