Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

Mini haul with an unexpected surprise.

First pleasant surprise and certainly not a giant savings, was my Wet & Wild Megalast purchase at Walgreen. W & W products were buy one get one half off. These two dark and smoldering lacquers caught my eye. For the life of me I can’t find the name of the collection, but they were on their own display and only a few were left. On the far right is Under Your Spell, a deep deep shimmery red with black undertones. Next to it is Poison Ivy. It’s a gorgeous shimmery evergreen with black undertones. I love the brush and formula of this cheapo line of polish. Then I went to Ulta and had one thing in mind. To add to my teeny tiny Zoya collection. I only budgeted myself to two bottles and preferably ones in the sale rack. But I didn’t see anything that said, “take me home.” So I found the Zoya racks and drooled for a good long while. I caved and chose a Pixie Dust, Chyna. Oh, my, gosh! I can’t wait to wear it. Chyna is a rich sparkly red, a real attention getter! The other is called Hazel. Someone tell me, where do they get these names? I get Chyna…it’s that kind of red, like you’d see in a Chinese art display. It’s breathtaking. Hazel is hard to describe. I know I’m not the only one, but I open bottles to check the formula, pigment depth, etc. This one is seriously pigmented and promises to be a strong one-coater. My nighttime bathroom shot does not do it justice. I promise to retake this photo. It’s a duo metallic of pale gold and dusty green. Even watching it on plain paper in my polish journal proved this one will be one of my favorites. Here’s the big surprise. I lost my $3.50 off of $10 coupon and couldn’t seem to bring it up on my Ulta phone app. So the clerk took pity on me and said, “here, I have one I can give you.” I also asked her if the buy two/get one sale was still on and she said it ended a couple of days ago. So she gifted me this great Zoya Color Lock System kit! Each bottle here, base coat, top coat and nail dry drops are .25 ounce, a decent mini, bigger than most. Also was an eye dropper and a bottle of remover, and an eye dropper. The whole purchase was only $14 with tax. Cool huh?!
