I recently acquired three rare green polishes that I have been wanting for quite awhile. These were all found from different sellers on eBay and definitely purchased at a high-ish price, BUT it was worth it to me. I know a lot of people hate eBay or feel as though they are getting ripped off from sellers on there. For me personally, I don’t see it. People pay for what they feel things are worth. If they didn’t pay it, then the sellers wouldn’t be charging it. Just my opinion though and I am not trying to instigate a comment war! If you Google these, you will be able to find them on eBay as well. Check around though because some sellers have them for $10.00 cheaper than others. Enjoy!
At Your Quebec & Call came from OPI’s Canada collection many years ago, before I was as into polish as I am now, so of course I missed it. Now it’s been discontinued so it’s harder to find. I really wanted this one because olive green is my favorite nail polish color. I don’t know WHAT it is about olive green that I love so much! I have yet to find one that doesn’t look good on me, so maybe that’s part of it. The color is an olive green with a lot of gold in it. It’s got nice light green and pink shimmer as well. The application was fabulous and creamy and this was three coats. This one is still available for a fairly decent price anywhere from $7.50 and on up, depending on who you go through, so get it while it’s still available!
Moonpool from China Glaze is another one that’s been discontinued and is slightly harder to find than At Your Quebec & Call. This is a really great grass green with a major yellow flash and shimmer. It’s really fabulous and I’m so happy I own it. The formula was great and this is three coats. It’s slightly more expensive on eBay, anywhere from $10.50 on up.
The rarest of these three is OPI’s Rainforest. The origins of Rainforest aren’t even known among nail bloggers it seems. No one is sure when it came out and it doesn’t seem to be associated with any particular collection. Very mysterious! When I saw this swatched on MUA I knew I had to own it. The color is a emerald green with lots of fine shimmer. This is three coats. Since this is pretty hard to find, it’s a lot more expensive. It’s on eBay right now from between $38.99 up to $47.95. I refuse to say what I paid because I might vomit, but I will say I paid more for it than any other single nail polish ever and the record holder before that was when Chanel’s Black Satin was on eBay for $35.00! OUCH. But whatever, I don’t do this all the time and I wanted it!
Do you have a lemming for any of these? What’s your MAX $$ limit on any one nail polish color?
