It's all about BRENDA. What I mean by that is that my awesome-blossom friend from work, Brenda, in addition to being an irreplaceable MA at our non-profit clinic, also has her cosmetology license. Which means she gets to go to CosmoProf. Lucky. Thankfully, she was nice enough to let me tag along yesterday while she went to pick up her fancy shampoo.
Of course, I was floored the second that I saw their nail polish stash. They had the BEST China Glaze and OPI selection I had ever seen. They had the new OPI Texas and Katy Perry collections, but they also had past ones like the Designer Series collection (score!). They weren't slacking on their China Glaze, either. They had the Tronica and Christmas 2010 (minus Party Hearty - dangit) collections, and a whole assortment of colors that I can never find at Sally's. We only had 30 minutes to browse, so I was bee-boppin' all over the store and "ooh-ing and aah-ing" (and probably drooling a little) while I tossed a few polishes into my basket. Overall, I picked up 15 little beauties. And for wayyy cheaper than I could have gotten them anywhere else. CosmoProf- You are incredible. I'm thinking about going back to school to get my cosmetology license just so I can go visit CosmoProf everyday (yeah, every. day.) In fact, we're going back tomorrow and I'm getting more more MORE! Thank you, Miss Brenda. I also wanted to thank you for being an enabler to my addiction. You are amazing.
So, without further ado, here's that haul:

And... I couldn't share the others without sharing these with you as well. I picked these up (for full price, sheesh) from J&A Beauty Supply last Sunday:

So, since I'm going back to CosmoProf tomorrow... what ELSE should I pick up? I plan on snagging the rest of the OPI Designer Series Collection, OPI San-Tantonio, the mega-glitters from the Burlesque Collection... AAANNNNDDD.....?
