Here's the scene. Friday night, a girl and her mother entered a local Winners store to peruse for some great scores. The girl approached the cosmetics section, as usual. She inspected the nail polish, only to find that something strange had arrived...
A) The most legit looking fake OPI polishes I have ever seen, or
B) Very extremely limited edition hard to find strange OPI polishes that no one knows of.
As soon as I saw the blue one on the shelf I was like "What the deuce? That's no OPI I've ever seen!"
Let's be real. I know too much about OPI. And yeah, I'm sure there are lots I've never seen, but they're usually like, mauve, and they're old school black label. And not bright blue with holo glitter. There was no fooling me.
I picked it up to check the label.
Immediately I googled it on my phone and there's nothing. Nothing!! What?!
The label is kinda weird though. No barcode. Maybe it's a sample? Maybe it's super legit fake? Maybe it was never produced? Maybe it's all a dream?
Obvi I then checked for the telltale fake OPI signs like the bottle being slightly different in size, the glass at the bottom looking funny, the writing on the back, the gears in the cap, the pro-wide brush, the OPI on the brush stem... It's ALL legit. (Except for the somewhat strange label.)
So now I'm standing there with my jaw probably on the floor when I notice the other odd looking colors.
Golden Waves. Googled. Nada.
Tart Green Apple. This is way brighter than Who The Shrek Are You.
Bouquet of Violets. This looks like Funky Dunkey.
By now I was squirreling away all the bottles so the muggles couldn't get them and also so they would stop judging me and I could snap pictures in peace.
Cream in My Coffee. Kinda like a Skull and Glossbones mixed with My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
Just Shocking! This looks like Wing It! Both with exclamation marks!
I carried all six around the store for a while having a SERIOUS dilemma on if I should buy them because they're rare or forget them because they're worthless.
I even made my mom listen to me ranting about it and showed her all the reasons why they MUST be real but definitely CAN'T be real at the same time.
I eventually left them all behind. And I'm still iffy about my choice. But $8 each... Ugh.
Have you ever heard of any of these? Do you have ANY CLUE what they could be? Almighty polish wisdom, help me!!!
