  1. Nice glitters Karen! I spied the Freshcover polish. I picked up one of these really cheap today in a shop and I'd never heard of them before :-| It is a polish called Blue Veil - it looks amazing kinda iridescent type glitter! :-)

    I've got loads of KleanColor glitters that I should probably stick on a swatch wheel!!!!

  2. Will you ever do a storage/collection post? I'm dying to know how many pretties you have!

    1. Norma, I feel tired just thinking about doing a stash post, mostly because I would want to get things more organized before that, and I'm not doing so great with that project. :) Right now, I have four Helmers in my bedroom closet, eight (I think) in my basement, and some number of boxes of overflow. Thousands of bottles of polish, all patiently waiting for their turn to be on the blog and on my fingers.

    2. @_@ man oh man visiting your house would be right up there with taking a trip to Disney World for me lol! Makes sense why you'd be hesitant to do a stash post with all those pretties though

  3. 8, 12, 17 are my favourites. The stars are smashing, so much my style!

  4. I'm not a big glitter fan, but I like the look of the vampy and gorgeous #20 Precision Rebel Red in You!

  5. 13 and 14 look really nice, but 8 is my favourite - yay for star glitter! =D

  6. i refuse to watch your wheels, because you only made my wish list growing ;)
    think i need Studio M De-luxe-cious and Precision Rebel Red now :D

  7. My favourite is NYX Girls Carnival :)
