It’s that time again– here’s the nail polish I’ve hoarded over the past two months! As my collection grows, I find myself buying less and less and being a lot pickier. I’m up to 280 polishes, I believe, but that doesn’t include a box I’d like to get rid of. Maybe a blog sale soon? Who knows! I should probably go through everything and figure out what to do at some point.
Let’s start with the indies because seriously… will you look at these beauts?! First up are the Girly Bits P.S. I Love You Collection, which you’ve already seen swatches of– Hot Shot, A Mother’s Love, and Twitterpated. Pam does holo right, dang, I love these polishes! The little hearts in A Mother’s Love are so cute, too! I also picked up Femme Fatale Suspended Starlight from Llarowe after much stalkage. It’s freaking gorgeous, but you know how I feel about blue polish (hint: it’s the best polish there is!)
Now for non-indies I picked up China Glaze It’s a Trap-eze, which has quickly become one of my all-time favourites. I’m trying to resists buying a back-up and the only reason I haven’t yet is because my local beauty supply shop and Cherry Culture were both sold out. I was also going to resist the other polishes in this collection, but after seeing swatches of China Glaze Creative Fantasy, I knew that wasn’t going to happen. What an incredible purple! I have it paired up with something special right now, so stay tuned to see swatches of that in the next week or so! I’ve been lemming a light blue so I bought OPI No Room For the Blues. Beautiful colour, but when I got home I realized it wasn’t light enough. Still love it, still going to use it, but I need something lighter. NEED. Addict. I know.
Finally, a lone Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. Factory Direct, a warehouse closeout-type store, advertised Insta-Dris in their flyer for something like $1.33 each. RIDICULOUS considering they’re $7-8 ’round these parts. There’s a Factory Direct close to my work, so I popped over there and apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought it was RIDICULOUS because the freaking shelf was cleared out! The nice man helping me said they’d probably get more in, but yeesh. He was saying some lady was in earlier in the week and just cleared the shelf off into her basket. Damn you, fellow polish hoarder! They had one colour left. I doubt I would have picked it up in any other circumstance, but it was $1, so meh. This is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Purple Haste– a dark purple with blue and purple shimmer.
That’s… it? Whaaaaat! Okay, well don’t worry, I’ll start hoarding for my next installment. Until then, tell me what you’ve hoarded recently! Are you trying to cut back? I’m having a hard time finding affordable nail polish wall racks from companies that will ship to Canada, so I have to cut back just for the space, haha!
