I Spy...Glow In The Dark Polish at Claire's

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 8/15/2011 07:21:00 PM
There are a lot of entries for my last giveaway and even more tweets to confirm. That's my homework for tonight! Check back for the naming of the winners.

I went to visit a client at an outlet mall today. I stopped in at Claire's and they had their Halloween jewelry and accessories out. It was just one tower for now. But I found some glow in the dark polishes...
I'm really pleased that this photo does a great job in capturing the true colors of these polishes. The price was $3.99 each. I got it on the sly from the manager...she said come back next week and the Halloween stuff would be buy one, get one half off.

But what I really wanted to get were these...
You wind them up and they walk. See their little feet? They glow in the dark. How sweet is that mummy!! I think these were $4.99 or so.

Another client I visited is a large hotel over by a big-ass convention center. It was the one that hosted the Orlando Premiere in June that I went to. Parking is not cheap there, but I am. I park in the Walgreens' parking lot and walk to the hotel. I know the parking lot is for Walgreens' customers so that is why when I come back I make a point of going in there. Clever, eh?

Here's what I saw...
Sinful Colors 'Go Plaid' collection. I'm underwhelmed by this one. I have read on other blogs that the purple 'Amethyst' is a new color. I didn't think it was anything that I don't have 7 of already. I was tempted by the orange 'Chelsea Orange', I believe is the name. But, I'm still holding onto my money for some Wet 'n Wild collections and Metro China Glaze collection. Oh, and Sinful Colors are 99 cents this week, however, this store didn't have one sale sign up for their Sinful Colors.

Once the sales clerk moved her....body, I was able to get a photo of this OPI collection...
It's good and plenty picked at, so I know it's not new. However, it seems odd to see OPI in Walgreens.
And, see how nice the polish remover bottles are placed around it? The sales clerk worked extra long and hard to arrange these just so perfectly. (Yea, I don't have anything else to do either.)

On Saturday, I went on an expedition; I wanted the Wet 'n Wild's 'Dream Weaver' collection!!! I googled up 3 Winn Dixie's right in my area and plotted my attack. If you check out Nouveau Cheap's blog, she has a map that shows were these deviously shy motha's are found. I noticed that a lot of them were found at Winn Dixie's and that is were I, previously, found the 'Victorian Collection.' So off I went.

At the second store, I found them. Just like this...
Holy Moly!! Do they not have any idea how precious these are?!!! They had all of them but one. Here's what I got...

I haven't owned any makeup more coveted. I wore the 'Earth Looks Small...' (last one) on Saturday to Maria's, at Cult Nail's, birthday party. Today I wore 'Dancing in the Clouds' (third from the left...or right, either way). I'm pleasantly surprised that the three shades with 'Dancing...' work so well together. I wouldn't have imagined that. I do have to say, I will have to wear a shadow primer to keep this one in place.

Now I'm out for the BIG score...Wet 'n Wild's 'On the Prowl' collection. Just check out Vampy Varnish's swatches of these and tell me how delightfully 'trick-or-treat'-ish they are!!!

And, hey, if you don't know this already, many Walgreens get their holiday items out on the floor and prepped but, they have them on the high shelves over the products.

Last year I was pulling the Halloweeen Wet 'n Wild's down and helping myself. The sales clerk magically appeared to ask me if I needed help. I said 'Yea. Hold this while I get another display down.' She proceeded to tell me that these where not 'out' yet and I couldn't get them. I must have the icy-est stare because she backed down in a hurry. And, I walked out with new Halloween makeup.

Lots of a great finds! I need to go on the hunt for some of these goodies!

I went on the hunt - or should I say 'prowl' for the Wet-n-Wild Halloween collection and came up empty. Mark the Winter Park Walgreen's & CVS on North Orlando off your lists. They've got nada.

@StardustStephanie I found goodies but didn't BUY goodies, today that is. hee hee! But I'm hoping to get the new Metro China Glaze collection and the Wet n Wilds. I hope we don't have to wait too close to the Winter holidays to get those collections. :/

@OnceBitten I'll mark it off. I'm going to be down by the airport tomorrow and then back to downtown. I think it might be about 2 weeks too early yet. Did you check out Vampy Varnish's swatches?

How fun, I've never tried glow in the dark polish but it sounds really cool.

Nice post

The glow polish are so cute!
You have so many special polishes in Claire's we don"t have in France...
Great haul!

@Dale I have a pumpkin bottle of polish that it orange glitter and it glows in the dark. But these were new to me.

@rock-or-not And vice versa. I see gorgeous polishes from bloggers in Europe. I end up drooling over them. LOL

OPI at Walgreens?! What?!

I must have the glow-in-the-darks!!!

Yet again, you're an enabler!
