While in Japan, I received news that I had won a $50 gift card from Live. Love. Polish. Soon after, it was news that the illimite Romanticism collection was back on stock.
You'd think it was the best timing ever to have won that gift card right!
Happily doing the butt wiggle while trying to place the order on my phone. I even missed the awesome ocean scenery that our driver was pointing out because well, I didn't want to miss that re-stock!
Except the phone refused to let me place an international order to ship home to Singapore!
I tried everything I could think of. For 2 full hours. While riding along in a car along the Sea of Japan. I swore and cursed and nearly threw the phone out.
It only worked when I returned to my laptop at home in Singapore.
By then, the ones I wanted from the Romanticism collection were out of stock again (obviously).
And so I was left with the following:
Picture Polish in Tiffany, Wanderlust and Spring.
And the only illimite that I wanted left: Stolen Kiss.
Anyway, did I tell you I have a sudden love affair going on with Picture Polish? It seems like I need almost every single colour they are putting out. And I'm cursing my lack of funds or gift cards won...
No. Just kidding. Just cursing the lack of funds. I'm more than grateful and excited I won that gift card. I hardly win anything!
More like I'm cursing the inability to order while in Japan...
Superchic Lacquer (from top left, anti-clockwise) in Deadpool, Dopamine and Awkward Turtle.
Yeah. I love my super-heros so I definitely wanted to try those.
ILNP in Bermuda Breeze, The Magician (HOLY CRAP GORGEOUSNESS!) and Sunday Brunch.
This ILNP order was supposed to be my only order for April's haul. Well, I figured with a gift card, anything from Live. Love. Polish shouldn't be counted as buying.
Ok, yes, I know. I went over the $50, but since I was shipping, I might as well include some others right? And since I didn't get the illimite ones, I needed to make it up to myself.
Anyway, I further pacified myself by also placing a huge Bundle Monster order.
Yeah. So much for restraint and low-buys. But oh well. It was a temporary loss of insanity. Restraint is back. It jolly well better be back after seeing the credit card bill...
