This post has taken me an entire day to complete, and I’m still not done at past 11:00 p.m.!

My internet is super duper slow due to it being the end of the month, hopefully all of the images will load properly and I can add a few photos of the completed 6-6-6 wheel tomorrow …

Summer afternoon play date

I know, the colours in this comparison are so 2011 … but it’s all about the names.

That, and clearing the backlog of these straggler ideas so I can make way to catch up — I never got round to either finishing or starting several posts from holidays past (those three red A-Englands were actually supposed to be ready for Valentines Day past, not Summer present), and I’ve three seasons of Essie 2017 yet to show you … then there’s Summer from several other brands, but every time I pull them out to play, I have no inclination to actually wear them.

Lately my thing is moody, shimmery dark blurples and deep sparkly greens :/

On to my observations made whilst going through hundreds and hundreds of varnish bottles in an attempt to make sense of it all …

Each of these is China Glaze Re-fresh Mint, Spring 2010 Up & Away

Both were purchased during the same shopping jaunt at Ulta in 2016.

Both bottles were at a deep discount, and I couldn’t decide which I liked more, so both made the trip home with me.

In bottle and on chip, left is whiter and cooler.  Right has much more yellow/warmth.

WnW I Need a Refresh-mint.  Included only because of the “refreshmint” part.

I’m pretty sure this bottle was purchased last year, thrown in as an extra with almost the entire content of that mid-2016 (?) rainbow display of newly-issued varnishes.

Glad I bought it then, cos I’ve noticed this is no longer included in the now-meager core Megalast endcap display.

I know this because just last week (forgetting I already had this and heavily jonesing it), I went on a wild goose chase to several drugstores in search of.

Regarding the bottle seen above, which I was beyond thrilled to discover living a quiet existence on the corresponding floor of the Alex condo, I don’t know if it’s the original shade that’s a For Audrey dupe or the reported 2013-ish shade change to an even bluer, less minty shade.

Having purchased several bottles of this (and For Audrey) in the past to gift to overseas varnish mates (not liking either shade myself when they were actually popular :/), I remember those older ones in my brief possession as being bluer, not minty greener, than this present one …

Two versions of Wet Cement.

This is another one I didn’t like at all in its moment of fame.

I don’t even know why I have or where I purchased these two bottles.

I do remember buying several for alelvi123 around 5 years ago — maybe I kept one for myself!

Wet Cement on the left with the slightly domed cap is the “older” one … I used my (admittedly minimal) powers of deductive logic to figure this out, since all of my more recent seasonal and LE WnW Megalasts have the flat cap seen on the right …

Thus, I must have picked up the bottle on the right within the past few years, deciding I liked the colour after all … which is weird, cos way back yonder when You Don’t Know Jacques came out, although I was first in line at the downstairs beauty salon in my office building to pick up YDKJ, I promptly decided it was awful in and out of the bottle.  In fact, I think it was my very first swap!

Sinful Colors Apeasing (left) and aPEAsing (right)

Core colours added either late 2016 or early 2017

Who does Sinful Colors think they are with those witty mid-word CAPS? Cosnova? Lol

I bought both bottles in late 2016 or early 2017 at Walgreens.

Pretty sure I plucked them from the same massive display, thinking they were two different colours.

The Cosnova wannabe (aPEAsing) on the right is slightly brighter and bluer than its Apeasing counterpart, both in the bottle and on the nail wheel.

China Glaze Dope Taupe, Fall 2016 Rebel

Love love love this.

Every time I see Dope Taupe at a discount retailer, I have to shield my eyes with both hands to keep from buying yet another backup. (Same thing goes for the three OPI Brazil neutrals …)

Shortly thereafter comes Sinful Colors with not one, but two China Glaze (and Cosnova … those exclamation points! After everything!) doppelgangers.

I actually bought So Daupe! before Taupe is Dope!, but for the sake of numerical consistency, I switched them around.

Left 2189 Taupe is Dope!

Right 2198 So Daupe!

When I had picked up So Daupe! in either late 2016 or early 2017, I wasn’t even aware of the existence of Taupe is Dope!

After checking the Sinful Colors web site (where btw there was no mention of So Daupe! in the new additions to the core collection), I made excursions to several different Walgreens locales to hunt down Taupe is Dope!, just so I could perform a thorough comparison of this tocaya (same name) trio.

Above and below, Dope Taupe, Taupe is Dope!, So Daupe!

Initially, the difference between Taupe is Dope! and So Daupe! appears negligible, but once on the nail wheel, So Daupe! is slightly lighter and cooler-toned.  Closer to China Glaze Dope Taupe.

Collections: Sinful Colors Kylie + Sinful Shine King Kylie

When these collections appeared last year, I remember being absolutely enchanted by North Star first, then picking up a smattering of others here and there whenever popping into Walgreens. Later, I found a few bottles heavily discounted at Target, and was really surprised by the defacement of the display for this collection. Insults and ugliness, left in nail varnish and ink, directed at Miss Jenner. Whatever her reputation among the target (and Target, lol) demographic for her cosmetics, my opinion of her collaboration is sky-high. So much so that when I came upon scads of half-price bottles at a different well-stocked Walgreens locale, I shopped to my nails’ content. No regrets; here’s what I have.

These four are Trend Matters Angel shimmer mattes:

Twenty-six bottles in all.

Unsure how many comprised the collections; I’m not fan enough to do intensive Internet homework so it was difficult to decipher on my own what was what in order to break down what I had.

Since I had initially filled up a wheel of 18 chips with what I had (not anticipating buying more), they were organized by colour on the wheel and in my notebook by collection/finish.

That was last year.  When I ended up collecting eight more bottles in the interim, I just put them in the box shown in the background and saved it all for another day.

Those bottles ended up on a different nail wheel, just painted.  Lots of work and confusion!

Now for some comparisons among other similar Sinful Colors 🙂

Ulta, GOSH and Maybelline were originally shown in this post, but those photos suffered the same ignominious fate as my other early efforts …

Dear BB, may you look back on your summer surf excursions with the same bittersweet nostalgia I feel upon plucking these oceanic beauties from their drawer … when every trip to the drugstore was an absolute delight, as the market was exploding with multichromes several years back — just as I had lost my job with scarce to no pocket money to spend on these little bottles of liquid gems. Fortunately, I had made wonderful international connections via a shared varnish passion, and many generous ladies granted my every wish and more. In spite of my long spell of unemployment, I had begun to fill my treasure chest with gifts of multi-coloured jewels, which I now share with a small world of like-minded souls. Your tribe is out there awaiting your return to the shared element, my love.
