I'm an avid Walgreen's shopper (see), or CVS, Duane Reed, General Pharmacy/Bathroom/Shower/Medicine Cabinet supply stores. If I could look it up, and I may seeing as all my bills are sitting in front of me for organizational and tax purposes, I think I may contribute to much of their success.
And about 6 months ago, Walgreen's, Chicago's pharmacy chain aka my pharmacy whilst living out here, did the greatest thing. They decided to start carrying Essie Products. (Don't even get me started on Duane Reed's products i.e. Lucy B perfume and more, THANK GOD they are not in Chicago). See, I'm a firm beiever in the idea that there is no reason to frequent local salons. I'd rather not pay to be made fun of right in front of me in a different language and I have reallllllly dry feet so I know they are judging. What I do have though: A VERY steady hand, thanks Dad!, and great nail beds. Yes, someone once told me I had great nail beds....weirdest compliment I've ever received. And at $8 a pop, I can buy a new color every week and still save money, and no, I don't buy a new color everyyy week, but most weeks, yes.
Now, yesterday I went in to pick up all my monthly prescriptions and was smart enough to have a list in my head of what additional items I needed. Cause, as you may know, if you're an avid reader of said blog or know me at all, I tend to be an impulse shopper, Emphasis on my last statement. Confession: I am an impulse shopper. Sooo I knew what I needed: conditioner, toothpaste, batteries for my new vintage (yes oxymoron) alarm clock, cocktail bling, my monthly magazines: i.e. cooking light and food & wine, lactose drugs and prescriptions. All good right?
Yah, you like how I just threw in the nail polish color casually.
[Isn't it pretty?]
Anyway, It was all good until I walked towards the aisle where the nail polish is. See last week when I was in there to get a water bottle, I looked and it appeared that they were restocking the aisle. But the Essie wall insert was down. My thought: GREAT, they're getting updated colors. No, No, it's gone.
So no cocktail bling...and I forgot the batteries
On an unrelated but related note: I once dated a guy who thought that Walgreens (WALL-GREENS) was pronounced WALL-GRENS. How weird is that?
