MISC BRAND SWATCH-GALORE!

Just a mish-mash of different brands. Most of these were polishes I got through freecycle or garage sales (THANKS MOM!) - with the exception of the last one; Maybelline Ocean Green, I got that at Dollar Tree.

Freecycle is how I came about the old Urban Decay polishes and the Cutex ones I showed you all earlier. Basically these people replied to an ad I had asking for any old or new nail polish. Through email they sent me their address and left the polish in bags on their porch for me to pick up - how awesome is that? Can't remember what blog I read about Freecycle on (let me know so I can credit you!)**** but it is awesome. I had two people contact me and I hope to get some more because I got some really awesome stuff!


****AMBERSKI from A DAY IN THE LIFE is where I learned about Freecycle! Check out her BLOG and her Freecycle haul! Thanks for the heads up girl :)

BATH & BODY WORKS COLOR DROPS - RAISIN





URBAN DECAY - EASY RIDER

Wow...I worked at Bath & Body Works for almost 4 years (2004-2008 roughly) and I've never then or now seen the Color Drops nail polish. Its either really old or really new!

Amberski said...

PERFECT10 - I think they are old. I have a couple more Color Drops that my mom found at a garage sale, but I didnt' swatch them last night. One is yellow and the other is like a sheer white type color.

AMBERSKI - Thanks girl - I owe ya!!

JALJEN - I know me too! Do you remember the al a mode's by OPI from years and years ago?? They were in little round bottles too. I think I might still have one, will have to see if I can find it and swatch it, it was a bright neon pink (of course!).

I love Kennebunk-port. I'm looking for the perfect red and that looks like it has just a hint of shimmer.

Awesome, someone else who has the Liquid Express nail polish from Express. I have 3 bottles at home and they are so old, but I covet them ...I'll have to swatch them soon! Prom Dress is gorgeous!

Heather / Eyeconic said...

Thanks for posting about Freecycle! I already got 2 people answering my request for polishes :D

Brooke said...

JACKIE S - I wondered if that came from Express!! Man Express was THE place we used to shop at for school clothes (early 90's!) but I don't remember them ever having polish. This one came from a garage sale.

HEATHER - I hope you get some hidden gems! Please let me know what you end up getting, ok?!

Brooke said...

I have fantasized about asking for polish on freecycle so many times, but it seems whatever I ask for (old cell charger, old dog leash, old flower pots) go totally unanswered. Maybe I just live in a very un-giving area! lol. But you've inspired me -- I'm going to go out on a limb and ask for polish! :)

Brooke said...

BROOKE - Well good luck!! Please let me know if it works out for you, ok?

Heather / Eyeconic said...

Brooke, I picked up some polish today! I'll be posting with pictures tonight or tomorrow, but I got a bunch of old OPI, some of it is from the 2003 British collection.

Annie said...

Love that Kennebunk-port, looks so pretty.

You have such a pretty blog! I started my own nail polish blog recently (polishthis.blogspot.com).

Lucy said...

What an amazing way to get polish. I love the first polish. That really looks so beautiful on you. The color looks fantastic with your complexion. Love the Ocean Green.
