This morning I checked online to see if there were any Rite Aid stores in Georgia that I could visit while on vacation. Why this didn't occur to me before my last day on vacation, I don't know! But, at least I thought of it before I left.
Savannah does have Rite Aid stores, and I went to my first one. I was totally unprepared, without coupons of any kind, because there are no Rite Aid stores in Florida, so I didn't pay attention to blog posts about deals at Rite Aid.
First I saw the Magnetix line of magnetic polish that you can only get at Rite Aid, as far as I know. I had seen swatches of them online, but I didn't want to order them online without seeing them, and I have a lot of magnetic polish as it is, so again, I had put the Magnetix out of my mind. Today I bought my first pink magnetic polish. I don't see an actual name on these polishes. The pink magnetic polish is FH7751. It shimmers and glitters even without the magnet. I like to see magnetic polishes because then I can test the magnet on the bottle and see the pattern on the side of the bottle. I loved the pattern on the pink magnetic polish. I also got a light brown magnetic polish. I had my nail wheels with swatches of all my polishes with me, and I didn't have any other magnetic polishes in the same shades. The light brown polish is FH7750. They were $7.99 each including two magnets each (wavy & straight lines).
I also saw a regular bottle of Revlon polish called Sunshine Sparkle. Actually, my husband noticed it and brought it to me. It's a lovely pale yellow shade that made me think of Easter at first, but later on I realized the polish is the color of banana-flavored candy, like Now and Laters, although the polish also has irridescent shimmer, and the Now and Laters don't. The polish cost $4.99. Could probably have gotten it cheaper somehow somewhere, but it was not certain that I would be able to find it somewhere else, so I bought it today.
They had bottles of Revlon, like Whimsical, that they no longer sell at Walgreens in South Florida. But, my husband didn't understand why I would want to buy a bottle when I already owned one. Giveaways, swaps, I told him! But, ultimately he convinced me not to take the bottle of Whimsical with me.
In a display of polishes from a brand I had never heard of, "petites COLOR FEVER," I picked up a wine-colored polish with lots of sparkle in it called galaxy. The display listed the polishes at $2.99 each, but after I checked out, I got the welcome surprise that the polish had been on sale. Guess how much it was? No really, guess! It was $.74!!! Can you believe it!!!!
In the clearance bin I found a Sally Hansen 10 Day Nail Color for $1.17 (down from $4.69). It's a beige color but has a pinkish flash/shimmer. I don't have anything like that . . . except maybe a new Finger Paints polish I bought earlier this week. We'll see when I get home and swatch the colors on my nail wheels. The name of the polish is Persistent Peony.
The total for the five bottles was $22.88 before tax and $24.48 including tax. I couldn't put out of my mind how earlier in the week I had bought 17 polishes and a cleanup brush for about the same cost. Darn magnetic polish! I cannot resist its magnetic pull on me!!! And, the regular price Revlon polish shares some blame, too.
|Sorry about the picture being sideways. It was the only shot where I was able to capture a bit more of the sparkle from the pink polish.|
|Mmmmm! Banana-flavored candy!|
|Sparkles! They appear to be one color to me, though, while this picture makes it seem like there are more colors.|
