Some of you may remember me mentioning back when I did my pretty pink spring inspired manicure that the glitter polish I had used over the flowers was old... Like, laughable old. As in... 15 years, or darn close to it, old. Personally... I'm flabbergasted that I have a polish that's lasted that long. Yes, I'm a polish hoarder. Even if I don't particularly care for a color on my fingers- I usually like how it looks in the bottle. And I keep it.
I throw it out only when they dry up, or despite my best efforts... I can't get the damn bottle open.
This one... This one shocked me to say the very least. I bought it sometime back when I was in middle school. It might have even been high school, probably when I was a freshman. I'm not sure. All I know, is that this thing is super sparkly. And I couldn't bear to throw out the bottle of glitteries. I am my own worst enemy. Anything that glitters always stays in my possession unless:
b) All the sparkle comes off
c) Some unfortunate accident leaving it covered in yucky sticky goop- like soda, caramel, or honey
d) One of my sisters steals it
e) I lose it
Yah. Pretty bad huh? Lucky for me, this only pertains to things that sparkle, makeup, and of course... My collection of shoes. But I'm not talking about the other things.
Yes, this bottle of polish is old. And it's still usable! Who would have ever thought that possible?!?!
So go on and laugh at me and my wicked old bottle of nail polish. You know what the best part of this was?? I couldn't even find a picture of this old packaging online! HA HA HA! Rock on, I have made one survive. Sure, it was a bit thick and goopy when I first opened it... But a few drops of acetone helped her out... And now? A lovely glitter polish has been restored!
And I have to admit... I love the sleekness of the new packaging! It's so much cleaner and unique than many of the other bottles which are found out and about.
I hope everyone had a fabulous St. Patrick's Day today!!
Giggles and old bottles
of nail polish to you!
