This isn't the actual post I had planned for today. But Blogger won't let me upload any more pix as it says I've reached my 1 GB capacity. Which is fine. I accept that as I know I tend to upload and post a lot of pix. But for some strange reason, it won't let me upgrade to larger capacity even if I have to pay for it. Everything goes fine and when I hit Continue to Checkout and it ends. Nothing!! I've tried for several days now. And did you know if you call Google, they have no live customer support to help? WTH? I called the local office in Toronto as well as their headquarters. Maybe when I get those Google telemarketing calls that I've been spammed with at home and work with lately, I should stay on the line and ask if there's someone who can help me versus my usual hang up. I've researched this enough that I know I can upload my pix to Photobucket and then copy them to blogger with a HTML code, but its more uploading plus more time....which I don't have a lot of to begin with...or I'd be posting more! Plus I seem to think PB has upload limits....so I've posted on one of those Google forums to try to get some answers but until then, or I figure out how to resolve, I'll be posting whatever I have loaded in drafts. *end rant*
In the meanwhile, if anyone has had to upgrade their pix capacity and done it successfully, please let me know how!!!
Anyhoooooo, over the last two weekends, I've visited a few Winners in my area. OK, maybe more than a few and maybe more than those in my area! Winners has awesome selection of polishes this time of year and usually up until around Christmas based upon the last couple years of shopping there; then it dwindles down around the new year and is pretty much a drought until the next holiday season. But I did manage to snag some cool polishes during the past couple weeks.
Winners has Butter London? Who knew? I seen BL at several stores at $12.99 and passed even though that's around $5 lower than The Bay and Holt Renfrew who sell BL in our area. There were only a couple colours and this one, which I didn't even jot down, just seemed too familiar to others I already had.
But when I came across one location that had it priced at $5.99, it was too good of a deal to pass up!
Sation. Not a brand too readily available in my local area. Jessica's on Orfus Road is now selling Sation but for around $7 if memory serves me right. These were $3.99.
I was really surprised to find this sought after Calvin Klein polish at one location. I only seen the one bottle; if I had have seen more I could have picked it up for a few gals who are on the look for it! (I've already done a mani with it and it's gorgeous! If only I could upload the pix.....)
The Zoya Gloss collex that I had originally passed on when they were first released. Zoya retails for around $8.99 here and I didn't think I'd use them enough to justify the money. But when the box set of 3 was found at one location for $16.99, it was like buy 2, get 1 free so I couldn't resist! Funny enough, these were the only Zoya's I seen during my travels and only at the one location.
A few more Nubars. These two colours scream Christmas to me!
I've also seen a lot of the Color Club boxes sets at almost every location I visited...but no Halo Hues! I wonder if they will ever be available in the box sets? Other finds that I didn't get for one reason or another were the China Glaze Joy Collection, a few random Orly's, the newish Ruby Wing colour changing polishes, a few random Essie's, and quite a few different Barielle boxed sets including the holiday one (I seem to recall that I did pick up a few different boxed sets of these too!). That's the thing about Winners; it's usually random what they have in stock and selection varies from one location to the other; which is why I visited quite a few stores......in more than my general area!
Thanks for looking!
