Summer is almost here! Do you want to know my absolutely favorite thing about summer? It’s silly, but I love painting my toenails. See, I bite my fingernails, so I never have enough nails left over to paint. Yet I really love all the fun nail polish colors out there! Summer is perfect because I can paint my toenails and show off my style in a pair of flip-flops.
I collect nail polish colors like crazy for the summer months! At this point, my collection probably rivals a salon. Yet I still need more! I headed to my local Dollar General to check out their selection of nail polish colors and other essential summer beauty products. They always have such a great variety of beauty essentials from brands I love as well as their own brand, all at prices I can afford.
Summer Beauty Essential from Dollar General
Dollar General had an amazing selection of nail polish colors! Most were just $1 each! I grabbed several different colors. I realized that I would need some polish remover and cotton balls since I like to change colors at least once a week. Then I thought about my nail clippers and how dull they were getting. Time for a new set of those too! By the time I was finished, I had everything I needed for a whole summer of cute toenails, plus money left over in my budget!
I have really long and thick hair that gets incredibly hot in the summer. I go through hair ties and scrunchies like crazy because I’m always losing them. I grabbed some really cute ouchless hair bands in summer colors. I also picked up a few neutral-colored scrunchies.
Finally, I grabbed a nice big bottle of Aloe because my Irish skin is quite prone to burning. Even though I use a ton of sunscreen in the summer, I still end up missing a spot and turning into a lobster! I also love putting aloe in the fridge and using it to moisturize my legs and arms during the summer, even when they’re not burned.
Shopping at Dollar General saved me so much money on all my summer beauty essentials. Head to your local store and check out all the fun beauty products! Follow Dollar General on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with news, deals and fun tips.
What is in your summer beauty essentials kit?
I go through hair ties like crazy. My hair is thick and I am always snapping them….and it hurts when they snap on my hand lol. I should head over and stock up!
I love being able to purchase beauty products at a discounted rate since I use them so much and so often. It looks like they have some great beauty deals at Dollar General.
Great ideas! I am traveling a lot this summer and needing to save money to travel with. At-home pedi’s would be a great way to do that.
I haven’t been in a Dollar General in quite awhile. Not sure why because we have one about 10 minutes from me. They have some great prices.
I am always amazed at what they have for so little! My summer essentials? Sunglasses, lots of sunscreen and lip gloss
I had completely forgotten about Dollar General, I will have to see if there is one near me now. Back home they were in areas that I was never comfortable shopping in. Hopefully our new area has one I can get to.
For me summer essentials are nail polish, sandals and sunscreen. I am a huge fan of dollar general.
you’re not kidding when you say essential, all of these items are a must have for during the summer!
I must say, I forget about Dollar General. Thanks for reminding me of a good place to get a great bargain!
We always need aloe around in the summer! We have had too many bad sunburns to not keep it in stock.
My new summer beauty essential are the refreshing wipes from Ban. Man, those are great! They just opened a Dollar General down the road from me. I ought to hop in and see what I can find.
I wish we had a Family Dollar closer to us. Those are some great deals!
I have lots of aloe and sunscreen. On the super dry spots I add a drop of baby oil.
I never paint my finger nails. I really should this summer. Thanks for the list of must-haves
I love the nail polish colors you chose. I need to stock up on some of those hair elastics for my girls!
I love having a stash of nail polish! And you can never have enough hair elastics!
I love the Dollar General, they always have really cute items at a great price. Aloe is a staple for our summers, as is sunscreen, fun nail polish, and remover. 🙂
Never forget the Aloe gel!! It’s a must, must!! I think it was on sale this week too so maybe I’ll pick up a couple bottles
I am so glad I read this post because we are going on a camping trip soon and I totally left aloe gel off our list. Aloe gel is definitely a must have item for summer. I rubbed some on a sunburn last year and it worked wonders!
I need those assorted elastics. I love them because they don’t get caught in my hair. I have a Dollar General close to me, so I might run over there and get some tomorrow. Thanks!
Don’t you just love it when you can buy something you like for a cheaper price? Everyone does! Love the hue of those nail polishes!
Thanks! I love trying out new nail polish colors, especially when I can save money on them!
