American Apparel & £1 in the same sentence?

My friend came into uni the other day, and said that American Apparel was selling off some of their nail polishes for £1. I didn't believe it until she showed me this lovely greeny-blue colour polish she had just brought! So after seminar I couldn't resist and had to pay American Apparel a visit, and guess what? she was right. They had a box of polishes at the cash desk labelled £1.

Being the nail polish addict I am, it was love at first sight. I must have stood there for a good 10 minutes having a good old chat with the shop assistant, picking out one of every colour in the box! I asked why they were so cheap and she explained that they had been sitting in the stock cupboard for a while, and some of them had become separated. She also then went on to add that some of the colours were being discontinued anyway.

In total I brought 7 nail polishes for £7, and in my eyes that is a hefty bargain! When I got back home I went on to the American Apparel website to see how much they retail for, and they were selling them online for £9 EACH!! I also decided to see if the colours I purchased were available to order online, and they all were accept for 1 of the colours.

Below is a picture of my most recent nails to date using my new colours. Usually I'm not a big fan of multicoloured nails as I think they look a bit tacky, but with all these new colours I couldn't resist showing them all off! (Apologies for the poor picture, as I took it whilst on the bus)
