Is it just me...

Post  SueD on Wed Mar 13, 2013 8:39 am

...or does anyone else hop from blog to blog finding lots of beautiful polish swatches only to discover that the ones I love are all old and discontinued or from the US and sold out?!

It's not just you, it's so frustrating.
I tend to still to UK blogs or the larger blogs that do mainstream polish I can get hold of get new releases of OPI and China Glaze.

I tend to stick to the British bloggers now as I tend to fall in love with polishes I can't have!

Yes indeed SueD! But then I search for a dupe.......sometimes I get lucky!
Which one(s) have you seen that you fancy?

I was thinking of starting a new topic titled 'I want.....' so we could name any elusive polishes that others might either a) know where to get one b) know a good dupe or c) might have one to swap or sell. We all have our own different 'specialised subjects' and someone else may have an instant answer to save the wanter hours of googling. Whaddya reckon?

Anyone know a dupe for OPI Creme de Menthe?!!!

Bet it wasn't as long as I spent looking for jellies last night! Laughing
What did you think of Zoya Akyra? I pulled it out of the drawer just now and it really is a bit tasty elephant

Zoya Akyra looks lovely, but a bit more teal than what I'm on the hunt for at the moment :-) I know exactly what I want in my head ,it's just a case of whether it actually exists or not! Doesn't mean it won't make it on to my wish list in the future though Wink
