This is my third year writing this post (wow, how time flies! See 2010 here and 2011 here) and I am such a fan of lists and putting your wishes down on paper, or a blog entry in this instance, that I am going to do it again. Not only because it seems to have some sort of cosmic HTF attracting powers when I do these posts, but also because it’s fun to look back upon lemmings fulfilled.
2011 was a good year on many fronts, especially for ticking things off the ol’ wishlist. Rarities procured in the last 12 months, but not part of my 2011 top ten include:
Of the ten (or so) that I listed last year, I was actually lucky enough thanks to some amazing friends to tick a couple of them off the list! I also managed to snag one more lemming right at the end of the year when a lovely reader spotted Revlon Hot Roxx on eBay and emailed me about it. Too awesome!
So while I didn’t clear the list entirely, I made a pretty good dent in it! So let’s get to this years list!
I’m still looking for Mango Zing, Cherry Zing and also an unknown one that belongs with my European Zings. Plus, there may be more that I don’t know about. I want them all. ALL OF THE ZINGS. ALLL OF THEMMMM. EDIT: MangoZing FOUND!! 2013, CherryZing found 2014!
LANCOME JAZZY – Image
Super old gorgeous blue green metallic from Lancome. YES PLEASE.
COLOR CLUB PRECIOUS GIFTS – Image
Probably not unique but I am a SUCKER for those old Color Club logo bottles. Beautiful pink jelly with multi coloured fleck glitter.
CM ENCHANTED FOREST – Image
Gold green duochrome goodness. Do I really need to say anything else?
CHINA GLAZE CROCODILE LOUNGE – FOUND!! 2012 Image
Practically prehistoric China Glaze streaky pale frosty hot mess. Don’t judge me. IT’S GREEN.
NARS AFTER DARK – Image
There are apparently two versions of this gorgeous inky purple shimmer from NARS. I’m not picky, I’ll take either!
ORLY COOL CUCUMBER – Image (Also, HOLY BALLS WHAT ARE THOSE OPTIC ILLUSION POLISHES!?!)
Gorgeous green creme with copper shimmer in the huge litre bottles (okay exaggeration) that Orly used to sell polish in. I have heard that it is streaky and sheer. Also – don’t care.
CHANEL NIRVANA – FOUND 2015! Image
Jelly Red with silver glass flecks aaaahhh huminahuminahumina. PLUS IT’S CHANEL TOO. OMG.
MAYBELLINE ALL I WANT IS PURPLE – FOUND!! 2012 Image
All I want is All I Want Is Purple. A Purple version of a Night Sky polish.
REVLON MESMERIZED – FOUND!! 2012 Image
Gorgeous Green/Brown/Blue Revlon Multichrome. Been after this one for years.
Thank you to everyone who made 2011 a lemming squashing year for me. I hope you all find your unicorns in 2012. Adios!
