I went into an Ulta in the same shopping center the same day and saw some of the same sets I bought at the $2-$4 at their retail $10-$22 price. Incredible validation and pride right there. I had always been intrigued by these sets, but never wanted to pay full prize for them. I struck gold, and I am still gloating about it a week later!
Here is one of the sets I bought. The individual polishes do not have names though. I'll also be doing one finger swatches with these as the bottles are super tiny.
Color: I love these colors together. This is what drew me to this set and the others. I like someone choosing color schemes for me. I love the variation in finishes with these. The brightness of the orchid color is great. I love the richness of the shimmers and the multichrome is a great touch!
Formula: I was very impressed with the formulas here. I only needed 2 coats for each of these swatches. I typically average 3 coats on most nail polishes, so this was a nice surprise! The most challenging formula was probably the orchid one as I did have some self leveling issues.
Price: I paid $4 for this set at TJ Maxx. I can't guarantee you'll find the same set at your stores, but definitely check it out. This set originally retailed for $22. Yes, these are very teeny tiny bottles, but I still think it was a good deal for me.
Overall: I'm happy with this purchase. I snagged a great deal. I love the color options and I was impressed with the formula. I can't complain!
