Shows Aren’t What They Used to Be

Whats up. I’m again. Since I made my hiatus submit, I went on a protracted (6 weeks) highway journey. About 4 weeks in, my husband received COVID however I remained effectively regardless of sharing a rental condominium with him (we took what precautions we may throughout that point). He recovered in time to fly dwelling, and I went on to a convention in Chicagoland, the day after which I examined constructive for COVID myself. Due to vaccines, I’ve had a reasonably simple time of it, although I’m nonetheless testing constructive so am persevering with to isolate.

I had a couple of shows I did not handle to submit pre-hiatus, so figured I would return to running a blog with these. I did additionally see some issues on my journey, however I am going to save these for an additional submit later this month in order to not overwhelm myself after I’m simply getting again into issues. My purchasing frequency is not again to what it was earlier than we have been in pandemic occasions, and mainstream manufacturers definitely aren’t doing as many collections now as they have been within the final golden age of retail, however I nonetheless need to doc what’s on the market. Apart from, it has been ages since my final show submit again in February.

I not often see China Glaze standalone shows anymore, so was stunned to return throughout this one for Jewels Royale at a Ceremony Support. There was not an ideal match between the bottles within the show and the eight colours proven on the photograph, however nonetheless, I used to be pleased to see one thing new to me there. Bottles left to proper in entrance row: Autumn’s Up (doesn’t belong with this assortment, Ruby Riches, Keep Frosted, Spoil Me Royal, Emerald Magic (occasions 2). The deeper blue within the 2nd row is Sapphire Up.



On the finish of an aisle at Sally Magnificence, I discovered this show of Dashing Diva Glaze, that are “semi-cured gel” nail strips. Not like the Sally Hansen gel strips, these do not require a liquid topcoat over the strips. Just like the Sally Hansen, they do must be cured below a UV lamp. The plain strip units are $11.99. The strip units with glitter/patterns/accent nails are $15.39. The lamp is $13.19.



Morgan Taylor No Boundaries was apparently a fall launch, however my Sally Magnificence nonetheless had the show out so I am sharing it. Slot for: Laying Low, Uncharted Territory (bought out), Afternoon Escape, Catch Me If You Can (bought out), Maintain ’em Guessing, and Completely Trailblazing. A few these colours have Sing 2 printed on the caps, so apparently this was additionally a film tie-in?


That is previous information now, however I nonetheless need to get the Sally Hansen x Peeps Insta Dri shows in right here for the sake of posterity (only in the near past I dug up a submit of mine from 2014 to share the show photograph for Sally Hansen Gem Crush in a Fb group, so I’d want these sometime). At Walgreens, they have been in a sidekick. The primary row has two-packs excellent for tucking in an Easter basket. The only bottles of the LE Peeps shades are within the second row: Peeps Yellow, Peeps Pink, Peeps Blue, Peeps Lavender, Peeps White, Peeps Fruit Punch, and Peeps Wild Berry. And sure, a number of the wraps on the caps have been peeling off within the retailer. I can solely think about it was provide chain associated, perhaps not in a position to print caps however have been in a position to get stickers that weren’t fairly suited to the aim. The remainder of the show was stuffed with a number of beforehand launched and core colours.



Fred Meyer had a shelf high of the Peeps polishes. This had a smaller variety of core colours however they have been nonetheless there. I have no idea why Thyme is Cash was featured within the shade names printed on the show rather than Peeps Fruit Punch (which was included within the bottle assortment).


Two particulars caught my eye right here: the “Not for Consumption” warning (so ridiculous that issues like which are wanted now) and the positive print that the glitter polish could not dry as quick. Guess fast dry suspension base is not a factor.


A special Fred Meyer had a tall freestanding show of those, with all of the Peeps colours on one facet and the non-Peeps on the opposite (not pictured).


I ventured into Walmart and noticed some Salon Good shades I hadn’t earlier than. First up have been some glitters and shimmers, some with holo sparkles on the caps, set collectively in a single part of the common show wall. There have been slots for six shades: It is Your Birthday, All That Glitters is Gold (bought out), She’s a Star, Shimmer Down, Sequin Sisters, and Teenage Fever.


Not distant, there was a piece with pastel-leaning neons labeled “SP x Dippin’ Dots”. The colours look like fairly customary summer season fare, however they appeared so fairly all collectively. The SP brand on the highest of those white caps is printed in scorching pink which units them aside. Shades left to proper: Birthday Cake, Strawberry Swirl, Orange Creme, Banana Cut up, Cool Mint (probably the most Dippin’ Dots-iest shade right here in my eyes), Lime Ice, Cotton Sweet, and Berry Freeze.


So this catches me as much as the place I wished to be earlier than my journey (at the very least so far as shows, swatches are an entire ‘nother factor), and that feels good. I haven’t got any lengthy journeys deliberate for some time, so hoping I can get again to an everyday running a blog schedule whereas I am dwelling.
