Here's my little collection of the limited edition Xtreme Wears for this fall.
Left to right: Purple Gala, Purple Fiesta, Mystic Lilac and Concrete.
I only found Concrete last night! I found Purple Fiesta while in NYC. I've only had success finding these when I pop into random Rite Aids that I don't usually frequent.
These wear really nicely for me. I bought a backup of Mystic Lilac since it seems to require more coats than the others. Also it seems like a perfect color to wear in the spring. Purple Fiesta didn't seem to get too much love on the blogs, but I like it! Purple Gala, on the other hand...maybe it's a little too foil-y for me. It seems more...formal? Maybe I'll try it when dressing up.

I have brought home to the Helmer all sorts of things!
Here's what I've hauled lately:
We Can Do It Pink
Suzi Skis Suede
Halloween Go Goth Minis
Pikaki Phakakta Plum (very very old)
Never Glum Plum
Halloween Awakenings Set
a fresh Vite
More of my trusted SolarOil
Along with the Nubars, which are currently on their way, that's a lot of new polish to play with! At least for me, I don't have a huge collection (yet?).

However in the name of frugality, i vowed to not place an order until a promotion was offered.
And that means I placed my first order today! There is a 30% off $30 or more promotion going on from November 15th to the 20th.
My choices were:
*Barricade (from the Fortress collection)
*Stronghold (ditto- love that they had a complete grey series!)
*Pharaoh Purple (from the Cleopatra collection)
*Gem (from the Prisms collection)
Not a huge order but I was concerned about shipping costs. With the 30% off, it almost covered the UPS Ground, which made me feel so much better about placing an order for polishes sight unseen. Haven't done that in ages.
I will be looking forward to sharing my thoughts on these!
I am sorry to say that my household contains three laptops- and ALL of them are on the fritz! Ugh. It certainly is putting a damper on sharing nail polish fun in a blog format.
At the moment I'm actually typing this out using the itty bitty keyboard on my iPod touch! It's quite silly but I wanted to post an explanation of why I'm missing in action.
I might try to post what I can. Let's see how it goes!
