Hey there, 2013! How you doin’?

I hope you’re better than I am-I’ve got the flu. This is the last year I forgo a flu shot I’ll tell you that much. But over the Christmas holidays I went back home to visit my parents and discovered a box of old polishes I’d had when I was in high school. Check them out!

Rimmel-zeitgeist

 

Heck yeah, that’s Rimmel Zeitgeist! I’ve been searching for one for ages on eBay or blog sale. Didn’t even remember buying it back in the day-it’s full too!

No buy FAIL.

I admit it, I’m weak. When faced with shopping temptation I often cave. I especially am susceptible to sale goggles as you will see from the pictures below. group-shotGroup shot; from L to R top row: back Maybelline Sequins for frankening, 3 Sephora by OPIs, 3 bottles of Revlon Popular (to be frankened). Bottom row: Salon Perfect Snow Flurry (I think?), the Milani holos, and 2 Barielles.

I would bet my right arm that this bottle of Salon Perfect’s holiday LE polish (Snow Flurry) is a 100% dupe for China Glaze Frosty from a past holiday collex. I never found Frosty locally but for $3.98 it works for me. Salon Perfect is made by American International Industries, Inc. which is the parent company of China Glaze. This LE holiday display (at WalMart) also contained a dupes of other past China Glaze holiday shades like Party Hearty and Mistletoe Kisses.

SOPI

 

Marshall’s at lunch yesterday again yielded some pretty cool finds. These are my first Sephora by OPIs-L to R are: Never Enough Shoes, Fancy Schmancy and Don’t Be Eggnog-ious. I’m collecting copper glitters to use in frankens-they are hard to find loose! I  only ever see copper glitter offered already in a polish.

Also from Marshall’s, Barielle Envy and Wrapped in Ribbons. I’ve never seen Envy but it has a cool duochrome thing going on. Looks really cool layered over black!

revlon-popular

 

From Rite Aid today, these were 75% off and called out to me “Add stuff to me!!!”. Revlon Popular is a cool light pink base with tiny & medium sized silver hexes. I will be adding white, gunmetal and pink glitter to see how it shakes out. Get it, SHAKES out? Franken humor LOL.

milani-holos

 

I never had a big yen for these when they were full price because they are scattered holo particles and I am a linear holo kinda girl. But for $1.37 a pop I will make an exception.
