Hi friends! Hi!! It’s me! And I have a story! I know, you love stories… I'm gonna call this one "Nicole by OPI: Best Polishes Found at the Dolla Store".

A coupla days ago (well, evenings actually), Shoppers had a BOGO on nail polish from the hours of 6-9pm. I went. You know I did. But weirdly, I left the store with nuthin’ except some other stuff that I had to pick up there anyhow (yes, conveniently between the hours of 6-9pm). I got home and said to Nick "Bud, I think I'm broken. There was a BOGO on polish and I didn't buy any". To this, Nick giggled and responded "Wow! I really hope you're broken!" He's kind of the best, huh?

But you and I have talked about the location of my Shoppers drugstore before, yes? In the mall with my bank, my Winners, and a Dollarama? Oh, I haven’t mentioned the Dollarama? Well.. uh…

After the epic tragedy of not finding any BOGO polishes that I wanted, I wandered up to the dolla store to see if they had any macramé plant hangers that’d fit my ivy. I know – totally freakin’ random – you can’t make stuff like that up.

So anyhow, I walked down the cosmetics aisle and saw a whole bunch of NOPI’s hangin’ there for $3 a pop. At first I was all like “$3? For old NOPIs? Too much!” 

And then I was all like, yahbut with taxes in, that’s 3 for like $10! So THAT happened.

I have long been a fan of Nicole by OPI polishes. To me, they were always the fun little sister to OPI. Huge whacks of glitter, super-saturated shades, fun, and not huge on classic sophistication, they were just sparkly and bright and smiley.

I don’t really know what happened to them except they’ve disappeared. The last I heard from Nicole by OPI was back in early 2015, and apart from the sad, droopy shaped bottle that’s not fun to store, I’ve missed them. Are they back with a vengeance? Yep, but only in places that carry discontinued stuff.

I’m sure the interwebz will soon be jammed with old NOPI swatches as more and more of these bottles start popping up in dollar stores. Me? I grabbed 3 I was fairly certain I didn’t have (uh, at last count I had just over 100 bottles of the stuff) and you know what, I totally didn’t have ‘em! It’s almost like I have a memory bank in my brainz – for my 100+ NOPIs!

Later on today, when I decide it’s time to leave The Salon (aka my desk) and go get a doughnut (oh yeah, there’s a Tim’s in that mall too), I think I’ll pop back into Dollarama and see if there are any other saggy boob bottles of fun to add to The Archives! I mean seriously, doughnuts AND $3 Nicole by OPI? Yeah, a day just doesn’t get any better ‘n that.

See ya’ll soon, friends!
xoK.
