Now, these aren’t stupid because of the polishes – the actual polishes are great. And I’ve never once had a problem with wonky caps/brushes in the Ross sets. The problem is that this isn’t a real collection (as far as I can tell) and the polishes aren’t labelled, so I have NO IDEA what they are. And that creates a dilemma for me, because my rule is that polishes stay on my untried shelf until I take pics and post them. But what good is posting pictures of polishes when I don’t know what they are?? Plus the shades are soooooo close to each other, my swatches will all look the same. So I’ve compromised: I swatched them on a nail wheel, and shoved them in my red drawer.
Yeah, these are all extremely similar, except for the glitter one. It’s even hard to tell my swatches apart!!
OK, from left:
1: medium red jelly
2: red glitter a la Ruby Pumps. I think this must be Ruby Slippers
3: very bright orangey red creme
4: medium red with gold shimmer
5: the darkest of them all, a red jelly. Very similar to number 1 above. This one is maybe a shade darker
6: orangey red creme, extremely similar to number 3 above. It may even be the same polish
7: the other shimmer. Lighter and more sheer than number 4
Well, this post sucked, but at least I feel ok about throwing these in my red drawer now because I didn’t break my rule about untrieds!
