Odds and Ends...


I'm in the middle of two swaps right now, and I'm absolutely loving it!  It's so fun to be able to give someone polish that they want and get something that you really want in return! :)

So let's open this up, eh?

I went through my collection of polish last weekend and sorted aside the polishes that I can live without.  After organizing them into a Word document, I came up with nine full pages (with slight overflow onto the tenth page).  I have a pretty fat lemming list on the right side of my blog.  If you have some of the polishes on there that you would like to swap, please feel free to email me at, and I can send you my big long list of polishes I have available for swaps.

China Glaze update!

While I was in Sally Beauty Supply the other day, I noticed that most (if not all) of the Up and Away and Poolside collections have been added to the core line.  I also spotted Dorothy Who? in the new rack.  Is this a new development, or am I behind the times on this?

Mushroom woes!

I recently bought the four newest Hard Candy polishes from Wal-Mart.  While looking through my receipts, though, I noticed that the mouse-y taupe, Mushroom, had rung up at $8.00 instead of $5.00.  What...?  I returned the polish, expressing my confusion about EVERY OTHER HARD CANDY POLISH being $5.00, and that the $8.00 price tag could not possibly be correct.  During a visit to another store, though, I found the same thing.  Weird, right?

After driving up north to go to one of my favorite little restaurants for lunch, I stopped at the Wal-Mart there.  Mushroom for $5.00!  Hooray!  Finally!  Once I had unwrapped it, though, the horror!  The cap had suffered a pretty severe horizontal crack that stretched across almost the entire circumference.  I hadn't seen it because it was low, behind the chintzy ring they package with the polish.  (Is the little plastic ring the reason that they're so much?  Lame.)

Instead of hassling with another return, I took it home.  My younger brother, bless his heart, is pretty handy with super glue and duct tape. :)

Hopefully I'll be able to post a real update again soon.  Blogger hasn't seemed to be interested in loading my pictures lately, so here's hoping that will change.  Until then, though, enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Happy Halloween!


  1. i hope the pool party line gets added! i still want those neons!

  2. I know that I saw Flip Flop Fantasy, but I was in a bit of a hurry...

    If you're interested in a swap, though, I know that I have Pool Boy Toy and Yellow Polka Dot Bikini in my pile. I could probably pull in Flip Flop Fantasy and... whatever the pink was called. I'm definitely keeping the green, and I never owned the macaroni and cheese colored one. :)

  3. Weird prices at walmart :(.
    I just read a blog, now I can't remember who's blog, she was saying that at her walmart the HC from Halloween were on sale for like 2 dollars each.

  4. Y'know, I went to Wally tonight and carried around a couple of those polishes, but when I price checked them, they were still $5.00. I have dupes of both of them, so I was definitely not $5.00 in love with them. :)

    Maybe next time they'll come out with colors I don't have! Bwahahahahaaaahhh... lol
