So, I know I said I'd get this up yesterday, but ... well, I fell asleep LOL. Usually if I do that when I wake up I'll stay up a few more hours but last night I just put on pajamas & went back to sleep. Here's everything all laid out, with Frisky surveying the bounty:
The first few were from Sally's, buy 2 get 1 free plus one of the Sallys near me moved & sent out a $10.00 coupon for the new location:
Left to right: China Glaze Solar Power (which I already used, in the Lava Lamp mani), Turned Up Turquoise (Neon) & Secret Peri-wink-le.
Next is Ulta, I had a coupon here too but I don't remember how much it was for:
Left to right: from the Passport to Paradise collection, L'Oreal High Tide, Ocean Breeze & Waters Edge. From the Salsa Sun collection, Maybelline La La Lime ... which is very close color-wise to Icing Jens Pick:
LLL has a hint of silvery shimmer that JP does not, but the base color looks almost identical in the bottle. Sorry I don't have time to do a real comparison swatch, but if you can't find the secondary Salsa Sun display that LLL is part of, JP may be an acceptable solution.
In my search for Hidden Treasure, I ended up bringing a few other polishes home with me - this batch was from a Walgreens, Sinful Colors were buy 1 get 1 half off:
Left to right: Revlon Minted, Sinful Colors Mint Apple, HD Nails, Let's Talk & Let Me Go.
A quick stop at a CVS:
Wet 'n' Wild Night Prowl (which I've been hunting for a couple months) & Rain Check.
An equally quick stop at Walgreens:
Sinful What's Your Name & Wet 'n' Wild Blackmail. Both of these are much more interesting that the pics show, the sinful has this really pretty duo-chrome glitter in the black base, shifting between turquoise & purple.
And finally, FINALLY, my hard work & persistence paid off, at a Walgreens I normally have crap luck at. Sally was buy 1 get 1 half off & this display also had some $1.00 off coupons:
From the Tracy Reese Spring 2010 display, Sally Hansen Silver Lining, Dive Depper, and Hidden Treasure x2. From the core line, Thinking of Blue & Midnight in NY.
Happy as I was to finally track down Hidden Treasure, that display was missing Sea & Be Seen ... so my search continued. The Walgreens near work was a miss, but as I was getting into my car I noticed this nail salon next door. Hmmm ... I wandered in, & came out with 3 old black label OPIs:
I'd never heard of any of these so I have no idea if they're HTF? Right to left: My Fave Wave, Ocean Love Potion & Sun Streaked.
Finally, tracked down the last color I was really lemming for, at a Walgreens near my grandparent's house:
Sea And Be Seen & Ring My Shell. One of the reasons I wanted S&BS was because from pics I thought it looked a lot like one of my favorite blues, Sephora by OPI Underwater Fantasy. Turns out it's a bit darker but they are very close cousins:
Again, sorry I don't have time for an actual swatch comparison! But I hope you all enjoyed seeing my hauls. I think a no-buy may be in order now LOL.
Thanks for reading.
