Yay! Twinsie Tuesday: "Best Deal Polish"


I'm suuuuuuper (extra vowels for emphasis) psyched to tell you that I am now participating in "Twinsie Tuesdays".  What's "Twinsie Tuesday" you may ask?  It's a group of bloggers that do themed posts each Tuesday.  I have been following them for awhile, and I always looked forward to their posts.  Imagine my delight (underused word, btw) when I received an invite to join them last week. I'm pretty sure I made an actual noise, out loud, to myself that sounded like this: "Eeeeeeeeeeee".


So, this is my first "Twinsie" post!  As you can see from the title, the theme today is "Best Deal Polish".  I am an avid stalker of the clearance section in any store that sells polish.  I familiarize myself with that section, and I usually head straight for it.  The polish I chose to show you today is China Glaze "Prism" from the Prismatics Collection.  I picked it on clearance this weekend at Sally's "Half Off Clearance" sale. So the original clearance price tag was marked down to $2.99, and then take 50% off, it's down to roughly a $l.50.  On top of that, I had my birthday coupon for $10 off of $20 (which of course, I had to spend!), so I got this, plus 6 of the new China Glaze Safari polishes, plus a random Finger Paints, all for under $15.  Woot!

The reason I consider this to be my best deal polish, is because this collection came out fairly recently, and it was a polish I wanted anyway, but I knew if I kept waiting, it would eventually hit that clearance bin. The half off sale just sealed the deal.

So here it is! Prism's base glitter has a duochrome-y purple/blue flash, and then there are mutil-colored, slightly larger pieces of glitter mixed into that:

2 layers:







Isn't it fun?  I'm happy to report that with only one layer of Seche Vite, this dries very smooth!

Don't forget to check out the "Best Deal" polishes that the other Twinsie Tuesday ladies have up today:

What's your best deal polish? Are you more apt to buy stuff that you may not necessarily "love", as long as it's on clearance? (I am!)

    1. EXACTLY! It could be the crappiest color ever, but if it's CG, I'm still gonna buy it at that price. Luckily, I love it!
