I Think I Need An Intervention

Good evening, Kitschies!  I hope you enjoyed your day - I know I did.  The day started off as usual and then I remembered I had seen something posted on a blog that got me all excited last night.  I enjoy looking at the hauls you all bring in, but I don't usually like to share haul pics because I don't want to show off what I got, but I've got to this time!

I have been waiting on the ChG Tronica collection for what seems like FOREVER!  I'd periodically call Sally's to see if they'd gotten their shipment in and I was usually met with "What?  What is that?"  So disappointing!  C'mon people!  You work in a store centered around trends - would it kill you to keep up with them?  Seriously.  Anyway...I called Sally's this morning and OMG they had Tronica!!  I grabbed my lemming list I had tucked away in my purse and I sped away to Sally's on my lunch hour.  I was a little disappointed when I got there because they didn't have all the colors out, but one of the girls who worked there told me she had them all in the back.  WOOT!!  Wanna see what I got?

I was so excited!!  I was seriously giddy!  These are, from left to right: Hologram (silver), 3D Fantasy (coral), Techno Teal* (teal), Laser Lime (green), Electra Magenta* (pink), Hyper Haute (raspberry), Virtual Violet* (purple).  And there's one missing, but only because NEITHER Sally's I went to (yes, I went to two stores at lunch) had it: High Def (blue).  The colors with * are colors I also picked up for the bestie (because I rock).

Look what else I found!!  The first Sallys also had the Crackle Glaze.  I picked up Broken Hearted for the Bestie and Cracked Concrete for myself.

Oh, and I got impatient for Tronica to come out, so I placed an order with 8ty8beauty.com and got CC Revvvolution and Worth the Risque.  In case you don't know, those are both holos, too, but they're hard to capture with flash.

Here is everybody swatched.  Click on the pic to make it bigger to view the awesomeness of my instantly expanded holo collection.  1 and 2 are Color Club; the rest are ChG (in the order pictured above).


This is Cracked Concrete layered over CC What a Shock! and Broken Hearted layered over ChG Jitterbug. 

I can't wait to use all of these!!  I had to change my mani tonight anyway, so I decided to go with Techno Teal and Hyper Haute as an accent.  Pics of those will come later because I need some direct sunlight to get the goods!

So...are you going to pick up any Tronica?  What are you favorites so far?

I would like to pick up Tronica but there isn't a Sally's near me at all and TD & 8ty8beauty doesn't have it posted or listed at all :(

I got seven of them yesterday, and am still excited over it. Both purples, both pinks, the blue, teal, and the brown/beige one. I almost squealed in the store when I saw they were there. I feel like I can finally relax now that I have them. lol

Your collection ahhh-mazes me!!! Sorry I've been MIA. I've had family in town & then life has just gotten in the way the last week. I'll be better now I promise :)

Love the silvers and the purple! I was headed to Sally's today and I'd be happy to grab you the High Def if they've got it.

@April - I was giddy - seriously! I squeed as soon as I got off the phone to Sally's. I hopped in to the other room tell my coworker and she just rolled her eyes at me. LOL I know how you feel - it's like a feeling of accomplishment. *I'm insane*

Wow!! *drools* I'm so sad they won't be available through e-tailers!!! BTW I can't think about a better thing to bring in the purse than a polish lemming list :-D
Enjoy!!!

I'm excited for you. I'm not all over those tronicas but I really want the crackles and can't find them where I'm at. My Sally's is not a promo store as they put it so they don't get all this great stuff. *sigh* In the meantime, I will live vicariously through your great finds. :)

I haven't seen Tronica in real life yet. I'll probably buy some if I do see them, but I'm not stalking them like I do some, mostly because I'm still a bit pouty that they're not linear holos like I'd hoped.

Awesome haul! I find the Sally's in the U.S are sooo much better than the ones here in Canada. I went to one on the weekend and they were sold out of the crackle (they said it sold out within an hour, they put it out on the Friday) but they had the whole Tronica collection. PLUS! they still had the promo going for $1 off any China Glaze so I picked up 2 Tronica's for $3.99 each!! PLUS I had a 20% off coupon on top of that :)

I really regret not picking up laser lime. I doubt I will find it at the Sally's around me and for that price :(

I know what you mean about the sales associates not knowing much, I was at the same Sally's the week before and asked if they had the Crackles and she said they weren't getting them in ... but they were sold out the next week I went lol.

Yes to Tron! No to Tronica! Sorry.

I HATE that the UK is so devoid of holo polishes!

Kimberly said...

I had a feeling these are what was making you giddy. LOL! Are they not giddy-worthy!?

Poor Sally's...I wonder if their HQ is listening to all the disappointed nail bloggers. Sally's was iffy before; now they suck!

i love how excited you get over nail polish.

how often do you change your polish? daily?

i am truly fascinated by your obsession...love it!
