Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great day. Last week I had a chance to go Dusty shopping. If you're not familiar with Dusty-ing, its where you shop Hair Salons, Beauty Supply Stores & Nail Salons for old polishes that are no longer available retail. I've only been twice, but the second time I went I had a bad experience so I shied away from it. Well last week I felt the urge to give it a try, so I set out for a little Dusty adventure.
To my surprise, everyone was really nice. I think it helped that I went early in the morning, before they were swamped with customers. I only looked for old China Glaze polishes because they are easy to spot due to the silver handle.
Here's what I found:
I'm so happy everything went well. As I get more comfortable I'll explore other polish collections and maybe even try to negotiate prices. The shops that I went too only sold China Glaze and OPI. I knew I could quickly spot the OMG's and make a run for it. I almost fainted when I thought I spotted Grape Crush, but it was Crystal Ball instead.
Part of me feels guilty for buying up all these gems, but if they've been sitting there for 2 years I guess they were meant for me. I'll definitely try this again now that I know to go during slow hours. I encourage you to try it also, but if you do, be sure to wear comfortable clothes. Most likely you'll have to squat, bend and peak through a looking glass to find the beauties you want :)
I almost forgot to post pics. I had to try IDK first because I've been wanting a purple holo for a very long time!
