Top 10 Polishes I Hope To Find in 2011

3 February 2011 8,657 views 23 Comments

At the beginning of last year, I wrote this post – detailing HTF polishes that I hoped to track down in 2010. I wasn’t as successful as I had hoped – I think that might have been because I was aiming too high. OPI Yosemite? Essie Streamers? Was I high? But I guess there’s no point in trying if you don’t aim for the sky and I did manage to score two items off that list in 2010 – Maybelline Electric Apple and China Glaze Stroke of Midnight.

But super insane HTF list aside – I also fulfilled the following long time lemmings.

Loreal RebelNails Inc AscotLoreal PlumageRevlon Rio CoolChanel Pepite

Loreal Rebel, Nails Inc Ascot, Loreal Plumage, Revlon Rio Cool, Chanel Pepite, OPI La Boheme, Anna Sui Trio Beach Collection, Sally Hansen Saturday Night Fever, Chinoiserie Stellar Night, Loreal Future Jade, Lancome Blue Enigma, Finger Paints Mulled Cider, Revlon Blue, Revlon Enchanted, CK Emerald Green, OPI Real Teal, OPI Golf Course Green, Color Club Black Widow Green, China Glaze Out On Safari and China Glaze Vegas.

Also picked up this year but not photographed – MAC Chroma Purple Python, Chanel Metallic Vamp, Revlon Go-Go, Chanel Cry Baby, Streetwear Bubble, Chanel Cobra, Revlon Pink Twinkle and Lancome Lizzie Jagger. All in all, even though I only got 2 of the ten off my list – I think the rest of my finds more than make up for it. Thank you to all the people that made it possible for my to check these off my excessivley long list of dream polishes. A special super big thanks to Em, who is responsible for finding me Real Teal, Golf Course Green and Black Widow Green. You know I love you, doll.

This year I’m already off to a good start. I’ve cut my frivoulous spending drastically and am now focusing on clearing away wishlist stuff that I have been looking for forever. Since January this year I’ve acquired Dior Marine Blueberry, Revlon Night Spell and the Guerlain Intense Red Duo. So without further ado I’m going to build a new list for this year.

KAZ’S 2011 WISHLIST OF AWESOME AND PURE INSANITY
I’m just going to note that since I don’t own these – none of these pics are mine.

1. Milani Hot Metal and/or Melt In The SunPhotos here (Temptalia) FOUND 2014!
Yes, yes. I know these are fairly recent and I know I’m adding two for one here but they are from the same collection. These are the only two from the Milani Hot Metal Collection that I want. Actually scratch that. Melt with U and Melt Down are also the hotness. I need all four. It’s a pity Cherry Culture never got these.

Illamasqua BooIllamasqua Hiss
2. Illamasqua Boo and/or Hiss
I am TOTALLY spewing that I missed these. Pictures used with the most awesome permission of Scrangie. EDIT: BOO FOUND!! 2011

3. Mavala Pygmee FOUND!! 2014- Picture here (Dr Frankenpolish)
A gorgeous green-gold-bronze that may be the love child of China Glaze Cats Eye and Peace On Earth. Might not be too far out of reach as an awesome commenter let me know of a German webshop that has it in stock. YESSSS.

4. Color Club Neon Teal FOUND!! 2011 Photo here (lextard @ Flickr)
This was on my list last year, but I had to add it again. I was out dustying with Em and I HELD IT IN MY HANDS. Then the woman wouldn’t sell it to me. BITCH.

Streetwear Hippy Dippy
5. Streetwear Hippy Dippy FOUND 2014!
Thanks to Leysa @ MUA
I had to include AT LEAST ONE white whale, right?

6. China Glaze Sunburst, Stardust and/or Cherry Bomb FOUND!! 2011 Pics in this post.
The last half of the old China Glaze string glitters that I need to complete my collection. These come from the same collection as Aurora Borealis, Jumpin Jupiter and Moon over Miami.

NARS Orpheus
7. NARS Orpheus FOUND!! 2013 – Photo via eBay (it sold for £8.00!!! HOW DID I MISS THAT…)
If NARS do another retro collection and include this and After Dark I WILL DIE. HAPPY.

8. Chanel Black Velvet (Original Glitter Version)  FOUND 2014!! Photo here (CarolineSwing @ Flickr)
This was a Japanese exclusive, so I may have to keep an eye on auctions over there for this. Think Ciel De Nuit, but BLACK. Was released as part of a 3 color limited edition set for the opening of the Chanel Omotesando store, back in 2002.

Revlon Black Strobe
9. Revlon Black Strobe (left) Thanks to Leysa @ MUA
Gorgeous, gorgeous pink & red glitter in a dark jelly base. Oh Revlon. You so awesome.

10. Clarins 212 Heavenly Violet FOUND!! 2012 Pic here (Pretty Punk Beauty Junkie)
I have #230, and this is the last on my Clarins lemming list.

So I guess I’ll update this post again in a year. Until then, I guess it’s time to get hunting. I wish you all luck in your own hunts

(you might want to pray that you don’t meet me on the eBay battlefield…) :muhaha:

    Damn, we did well hunting and gathering last year! Right, I have a plastic spear and a fur bikini, and I am hunting for your Neon Teal, your CGs and your Revlons. The amount of time I am spending in the sticky, dusty backstreets of Sydney’s southwest at the moment means I am willing to put money on findin hem. Which will lead to cakey celebrations. Everybody wins!

    • Kaz

      Yes! I look forward to another year of dusty hunting with you! <3 And also cake! I think we need more lime cheesecake…

  • Nixxy

    Gawd, I love ALL of those! I will have to keep an eye out for you in Perth…

    Wouldn’t sell it to you? What do you MEAN she wouldn’t sell it to you? WTF!

    • Kaz

      I know, right?! It had been opened and she was adamant that meant she couldn’t sell it. It didn’t matter how much I told her that it didn’t bother me!

  • http://twitter.com/RandomLanda L.

    • Kaz

    I’ve been lemming Illamasqua Boo! too :(
    *whispers* I might be able to get you the Mavala

    • Kaz

      Awww I hope you find it one day!

      Oooh really! I’ll have to email you when I’m not broke anymore ;D

  • Kaz

    Aww you’re so sweet! Thank you! :D

  • Kaz

    Yeah I couldn’t believe Em found it – and it was in my home town too! I’ve only ever seen green. I’d love to get the rest of them.

    I hope you find what you’re looking for too! *boomerangs good vibes*

  • Kaz

    LOL I am the reason I’m broke too ;D

    I know I’ll probably never find them, but looking at some of the stuff I have, I’ve learned to never say never!

  • Kaz

    I know I’ll probably never find them, but looking at some of the stuff I have, I’ve learned to never say never!

  • Kaz

    I had a feeling they were close. Thanks for that! :D

  • Lucy

    Wow, what amazing powers you have for finding all of those polishes. I doubt I’ve seen any of them. I quit wearing polish for years and then started up with a vengeance 3 years ago. I’ve missed so darn many polishes. I also gave away load of polish. I cringe to think of what I gave away. Hope you find everything you want.

    • Kaz

      I threw out some beauties too! Don’t you worry about that!

      I tend to ignore a lot of new stuff and just buy the oldies. I hope you find some of your old treasures this year too!

  • Kaz

    Oh I know, so overpriced here! I always tend to go back to eBay. I’m always able to consistently find the best prices there. I think the seller name I use is lacquerme?

    *puts camo war paint on*

    Alright, I’m headed out in the wild to hunt some of these down for you.

    • Kaz

      I salute you Private Diana! Dismissed! ;D
