50 Polishes – Day Five

Day five! Half way! Can you believe this? Lucky I only picked fifty. Can you imagine if I was doing my entire collection? Ugh I get woozy just thinking about it. I think my fingers would be falling off by the end of it!

Now, on to the swatches!

L'oreal Laquiresist VIP

21. L’oreal Laquiresist VIP – As you can probably tell, I’m really drawn to these deep velvety purples, and yes, this is yet another Laquiresist that came from the UK. The shimmer through it is almost silvery as opposed to the more common blue sheen that you see in these range of purples. I adore it – it’s just right.

Revlon Mystical

22. Revlon Mystical – Old Revlon blue purple duochrome! YES. This has to be one of my very favourite old Revlon shades and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why. This polish came out in the same collection as Revlon Mesmerized, which is still on my wishlist. One day my pretty, one day. For now, I’ll have to be content with this bottle of gorgeous. Oh however will I survive?! It’s kinda hard to search for this on eBay now as Revlon has reused the name for their Just Tinted line. BLAH. I hate when they do that.

Creative Aqua Jet

23. Creative Aqua Jet – I was pretty bummed when Creative changed their business direction and discontinued their old shades. I have a lot of old ones and this is one of their best. The aqua shimmer compliments the base colour perfectly and reminds me of this barbie doll that I had as a kid. The only problem with this colour is the fact that it is very sheer. I can’t remember whether this was four or five coats but I know it was up there. But it’s worth it, huh? This colour is also still fairly easy to find on eBay.

Sally Hansen Blue Velvet Frost

24. Sally Hansen Blue Velvet Frost – Okay, so this isn’t blue at all. Maybe my eyes deceive me, but to me, Blue Velvet Frost is flat out purple. In fact, it’s so purple that it’s almost Cadbury purple. This is one of my oldest Sally Hansen polishes (as you can see here in one of my earliest batches of stash shots) and one of my favourites. I really REALLY miss the matching brush handles. *sigh*

Sally Hansen Magical Garnet

25. Sally Hansen Magical Garnet – This last polish is also a Sally Hansen, but it’s quite different and probably a lot rarer. The Magical Nail Makeup line was another Canadian exclusive, made up of what I believe to be Prisms shades. I have this one, and a purple that looks a lot like Burgundy Orchid. I love the bright orange to deep red colour shift. It looks like fire in a bottle!

Half way! I can’t wait to show you what I have in store for next week. All I’m going to say is it’s going to be a LOT of green.

    Holy crap, Magical Garnet looks awesome!! I want an eyeshadow in this colour, please! And speaking of your entire collection, do you know how many bottles you have? I know some people don’t run lists of them, but I do and I’m always curious about numbers of the big collectiors. 🙂

      Oh man, I have NO idea how many I have. I stopped counting at 3000 and that was a long time ago. Maybe one day I’ll catalog them all and let you guys know the number.

    • Kaz

      Haha sorry about that!!

  • Mystical is just stunning! I love how it glows! I’m such a huge vintage Revlon fan – they had so many tricks up their sleeves!

    • Kaz

      They sure did! Some of the new ones have been surprising lately so maybe they are back to those old tricks again!

  • Lindsey R

    I didn’t realize the Magical Nail Makeup line was a Canadian exclusive! I want to hunt some of those down. Thanks for the swatches– I love your blog so much!

    • Kaz

      Yes it was – I’ve only ever seen three colours though. I’d imagine that they are pretty rare!
      And thank you! 🙂

  • Lucy
