i recently made a page on this blog called "about this blog". on the page i mention that i won't be posting swatches, only NOTDs. well, i'm about to discredit myself.
first of all, i received GOSH "Gasoline" in the mail today from a wonderful Dutch swapper. it's a gorgeous colour but i'm iffy on it with all the purples i already have. shown is 3 coats topped with Seche Vite:
i visited the only real dusty i know about in my area today, armed with more knowledge about polishes than the first two times i went there. i saw that it had a bunch of black label OPIs as well as ancient China Glazes so i did some research and then brought my Blackberry phone with me on my visit today. i came home with:
Essie "VIP", 2 coats plus Seche Vite. i freaked out for a moment when i got home and realized this Essie bottle was different from my others--you wouldn't know it was Essie without the sticker.
OPI "Vio-Let's Surf" from the 2002 Summer Surf Party collection, 3 coats plus Seche Vite
OPI "Crim-Sun" from the 2003 Summer for Shore collection, 3 coats plus Seche Vite
there are still some i may go back and get such as OPI "Burmese Blush", OPI "Bubble Bath" (white version, black label), and OPI "Queen of D'nile". they're all around $8 so some of these are a steal.
i bought these so i can swap for other htf/rare polishes and they're all up on my swap list, even though, i have to say, i bought the prettiest ones that were there!
