This afternoon, I took off to my local Dollar Tree with the dream of a super fabulous haul. A lot of MUA NBers were finding such great polishes at Dollar Trees! I should have been happy with the haul I made several days ago at a Family Dollar close to me...I hauled tons of SH Fire Opals in addition to some of the Salon Lacquers, Diamond Shines, OS Extreme Wears w/the flared caps and No Chips. I had just been to the Dollar Tree on the other side of town a week ago, only to find some little girl press-ons and some waxy looking emery boards. I went anyway, and a week later- nothing changed- pure garbage. My DT sucks.
Since I was on that side of town anyway, I decided to hit every dollar store in the area. Still nothing good.
I popped into the beauty store(same side of town) where I found that Fresh Cover Polish I used in my crane mani to pick-up another color. The removal of that polish was bizarre to say the least. It was almost instantaneous! Instead of bleeding all over the cotton rounds I use for removal, the polish stayed dead center no matter where I rubbed. It left a dime size spot of polish on every round I used. This is a real plus in my book, so I bought another color- an orange called Sunbath.
I was in the mood for a haul, and I had but one polish in my bag. I entertained the idea of going 30 miles out of town to a Dollar Tree that's located in a town more affluent than mine. But...I told my husband Jim that I would be back "shortly". It wouldn't be "right" for me to spend time running after nail polish dream hauls when I'm supposed to be spending time with him. We're both on vacation.
Then I remembered that there was another beauty store, Sun Discount, just up the road, downtown, on the major drag, where everyone shopped once upon a time before the Mall came to town.
As luck would have it, I found a parking spot right in front of Sun- a good sign! The first thing I saw upon entering was a brand spanking new display of Ruby Kisses Polishes. I have several, and I think that they're fairly decent for $1 polishes. I also found a brand new display of NK polishes. Never heard of them, but at $1 each, who cares? If they're bad, I can always use them in frankens.
I found 3 bins of dusties that I rooted through and found some Toma Chromes, 1 Nubar Moodie, and another polish from Dada- heard but not tried. On my way to cash out, I found a skimpy OPI display, where I found and purchased an un-named olive polish with asian type writing on the back. I also saw one tagged Tulsa Tootsie Roll-a, and Ti-tan Your Toga that I passed on. I'm pretty sure Tootsie is mis-marked, because its a medium taupish color with either a scarlet or violet flash. I may just go back for that one.
Above OPI 2 coats- photographed as the sun was setting. 2 hours later- it's *still* slightly tacky to touch and I can ding it with my nail.
Does anyone have a clue as to what this one's called?
