Look for Less! Dupe Alert?


Welcome to another edition of The Look for Less!  Since I have so many polishes in my collection, there are times that I’ll come home with a polish and look at others in my collection and realize that I already have something similar.  That happened to me this past fall when I bought Butter London…
