So my bargain store I "found" recently had all these Maybelline polishes on for half price = = $1.00 each, and I had hoped that they would just sit there on display .... all lonely so that I could go pick one or two, ( or three) up once a week as a treat to myself, but when I popped in the store on Monday evening, they had them marked down for a dollar... So I had to buy a few, they are probably gonna sell out and I will have lost out of another source of cheap polish for cheap thrills. They get a shipment of cosmetics and such every now and then, so I will still pop in there... :o(
~♥~The three Maybelline Express Finish polishes I picked up are very lovely, This one I am modeling today, is 'Violet Aluminum'. I also grabbed a Matte one called "Matte Red', and a red-wine colored foil/metallic called 'Dee-Wine'.
~♥~Maybelline 'Violet Aluminum' was very thick, and will need a bit of thinner added to it. I have more lumps in my polish than a herd of camels and 3 coats of TC sorta smoothed it out, yet I can still see them.. But It is still very, very pretty. This is two coats of Violet Aluminum, along with two coats of a bargain-brand clear TC, and 1 coat of China Glaze 'Fast Forward' Top Coat, which dried super-duper fast. I went to the Big City ( = again - twice in one week! ), and stopped at Sally Beauty Supply and that was all I bought, just a clear TC..... I was sooooooooo sad walking out of there. I had hoped to pick up some Sally Girl mini's of yellow's, oranges deep-deep blue and possibly the CG Paper-chasing ( ? ) but only walked out of there with this. The lady said that Sally Beauty Supply is having problems at the Canadian Border getting product across... WTFudge is that about... Oh well, maybe next time.
