Well, yesterday I posted a Chanel polish and today I'm posting a dollar store polish. It aaaaall evens out in the end, doesn't it? Usually all the Dollar Trees I venture into kind of suck, makeup-wise. There is a Dollar Tree that my grandmother loves and after we had lunch yesterday she asked me if I would take her. When we walked down the cosmetics aisle I practically squealed with glee because there were polishes! Not uber-fantastic-lovely-amazing polishes, but polishes! I think I got five of them. My grandma insisted on buying them for me because she saw how excited I was. Oh, can I just take a second to tell you that my grandma is the cutest thing in the world? She bought herself some of that confetti-type nail polish, those big silver stars suspended in clear polish that most of the time you have to place with a toothpick or something. She's 86 and she's putting stars on her nails. Ah, I love her. Anyway, pictures.
I think this is called Plum Moment. Near a window, natural light.
I kind of thought it might have a slight duochrome to it because it looks goldish-greenish on the edges of the bottle. No such luck on the nail, though.
All my pictures look the same as the one I showed you above, so that's why you only get two. Oh, but here's a closeup of the bottle with flash.
Yay, sparkles! I bet it would look awesome in the sunlight. Oh Cleveland, where is the sunlight?
This applied well, and I'm sure it's from like a decade ago so it's probably full of all kinds of terrible chemicals. Yay! The brush was kind of weird. It was really long and floppy. Manageable, though. It's kind of a metallic so it ended up being a tad brushstroke-y, but it's not a big deal. The color itself reminds me a lot of Lasso My Heart from Rodeo Diva, which I posted here. I'm kind of tempted to go back to that Dollar Tree to see what else I could find given a longer amount of time to poke around. Except...it's in Cleveland. Haha, yesterday my grandma was like, "They keep raising the taxes for everything. It makes me wonder why anyone wants to live in Cleveland." I had to respond with, "...grandma, nobody wants to live in Cleveland." I'm sorry to post two YouTube vids in one week, but...this one just has to go here. It HAS TO.
Also, for anyone in Cleveland just know that I make fun of it with love (sort of), like all Clevelanders. I couldn't embed Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video: Second Attempt, so if you like the first one and you for some reason haven't seen the second one, YouTube it.
I'm sorry that this post has completely devolved into being about not polish. To get it back on track, I'll tell you that I went back to Ulta yesterday and picked up five more little Essence polishes. I don't remember the names of the ones I got, but I know I have two blues (Pool Party and Underwater) a red, a lilac...and I think a darker purple. Yay! Pretty excited. I also got one of their fauxnad plates because I figured I was really only half a nail blogger without at least trying this stampy business. We'll see how that goes.
I hope you guys are having a great week so far. It's Wednesday! That means it's almost the weekend. Unfortunately I have to work all weekend, but I am excited for those of you with a normal schedule. Thanks for reading, if you made it this far, haha. Love you guys!
