I am mad cheap. And by "cheap", I mean I will literally tackle small children, the infirm, and old people out of my way in the aisles of CVS if it means I can get glorious bulk nail polishes for half off. The side effect of being this cheap is that I have an internal geiger counter tuned specifically to detect high-end walletfuckers instead of radiation, and it also causes me to gracefully vomit fountains of acidic blood. This is normal. I am a normal person.
Being normal, it means there is a lot of stuff I would rather spend my money on than expensive cosmetics. Let me show you some.

Would you rather be a person who owns a Deborah Lippmann nail polish, or a person who slips around in 75 pounds of pudding in their front yard?
I know my answer.
