I’m super busy today and I haven’t had a chance to swatch anything new (haha not really new but you get me) but I did have a few minutes to snap some pics of my incredible NOW COMPLETE Spectacular Rocky Horror Nail Polish collection, thanks to the wonderful Hannah from Polly Polish who helped me get the last two that I needed – Columbia and Janet Schmanet.
These were on this years yearly wish list and I was super chuffed when I got to cross them off. I remember seeing the tiny pic of them on TimeWarp.org
many years ago and setting up an eBay search, never really expecting to see any of them. They had been created as merchandise for the stage show in the ’90s. Plus they were only in the UK. I expected them to be rarer than hen’s teeth – and for years that proved to be true. Not a single sign of any of them on eBay. But then suddenly in the last 18 months, they seemed to start showing up out of nowhere. First I found Frank n Furter, then Rocky… then Riff Raff and Magenta. But the final two eluded me. That is, until now.
Here are some close-up bottle shots. First up, my two newest. Columbia is silver, gold, and red bar glitter in a red jelly base. Janet Schmanet is plain silver and silver holo bar and hex glitter in a clear base.
Riff Raff is silver holo bar glitter in a light blue jelly base. Magenta is multi-colored bar glitter in a dark pink jelly base.
Rocky is gold and silver bar and hex glitter in a clear base. Frank n Furter is my personal favourite – Silver hex glitter, and red, green, and blue microglitter in a dark purple jelly base.
You can see a lot of these have been either used or evaporated. I’m not bothered – the fact that I even have them at all is incredible and finding brand new polishes at their age would be super difficult. The best place to look for these is eBay UK. Unfortunately, unless you live in the UK, you might have trouble getting them to you since Royal Mail doesn’t allow nail polish to be shipped internationally. I got most of these for a few pounds so if you have a way to get them, they are cheap!
MAC are releasing a Rocky Horror collection in the near future too. If it’s half as good as these polishes I will need everything!
