Plan of attack…


No one likes to get it wrong but on this occasion I am so glad my first instincts were wrong. When Models Own promised their customers that they would be offering a half price sale if they reach 50,000 Facebook Fans by the end of the month, not only was the pessimistic in me didn't think they would reach their target but that they could reach it 10 days before the deadline would have never crossed my head. I am a pessimist at heart and it helps me to be less disappointed in life, in theory.


But they made it and, according to their latest Facebook update, they are hoping that the sale will happen today. Hoping is the operative word there. To say that I am excited and anxious is an understatement. I started to get into nail polishes right after their last half price sale and I didn't think such a dramatic sale, in search for a better word, at 05.43am, would happen again before Christmas.


Anyway,


if everything goes to plan,
if the code is released today,
if I haven't totally lost it by then,
if my internet connection works,
if the website copes with the traffic generated
if facebook isn't down
if I haven't lost my bank card
if there is no power cut
if I don't fall under a bus

and if the shades I want are still there...


This is going to be my plan of attack.


There is no way, to my knowledge, to save the shades in the basket in advance. The search facility is not working properly so I need to find a way to quickly identify the objects of my desire.

Yes, ‘sad’ is the word you’re looking for here ….









In addition, I would also want to get 2 of their new smokey eye kits, which I have been lusting for/on/over for a while.



Will you be taking part in the models own sale?
Have you got your heart on some shades of nail polish in particular?

It's a great offer but i dont think i will be participating just because i cant justify buying any more polishes at the moment. Love the colours you picked out though xx

Haha I am a pessimist too, you sound like the voice in my head saying 'if my internet's not down...' nice shade selection you chose! Beths blue looks particularly tempting x

After Sleek and NYX, I'd be quite a bit pessimistic ): .

Fum said...

I won't be participating because I have a box full of lovely polishes that need more love. My fave items in the models own range are the brushes (which are fab) but I already have the ones I want.

I think I'll be taking part; but it depends if I go through with it, I could select my shades and go to checkout and then be all "nawww" I'm so indecisive!

Tempted by aciiid too, mainly because I can't find any swatches of it!

I'll be taking part. I thought I had a lot of polishes but most have dried up. I've onviously been neglecting them. They look as if they have learnt a lesson from the elf 50% off sale and upgraded the server beforhand so the site doesn't break :-)

Jenn said...

Never tried these polishes they look very pretty!!

Enigma said...

I was going to order but the glitters I wanted are out of stock :( hope you manage to get what you wanted!

This was such a good idea, kicking myself now! I want Juicy Jules too, can't resist holo!! Also wanted Gold Finger, Sterling Silver and Mixed Up, but I'm starting to talk myself out of it since the site is down.

GretalRabbit said...

Oh yay, thanks for reminding me- I'm starting on my plan of attack right now :) Hopefully everything I want will be in stock...

Nude Beige is one of my favourite polishes! Don't think I'm gonna get anything from the sale though, already spent too much this month!

Karen said...

I got Grey Day, Lilac Dream, Purple Poppy and Becca's Brown. I'm into Fall shades now. So tempted bu Jules though. Can one own too many glitter's? :-)

I love how everyone prepares themselves for a sale. I wrote myself a little list and got Grey Day, Purple Ash, Grace Green and Green Tea. Also, for some reason I was tempted by Aciiied too. (It bothered me because I actually don't like yellow). Sales do weird things to people. :p
