I wasn't sure how much I would like the polish on all fingers especially the idea of removing it. I dug around and found a bottle of Zoya Savita which is pretty close in color and is a matte velvet. I painted the Zoya on all but my middle finger and put the OPI on my middle finger. I think it turned out pretty well. I tried to take a picture, but my phone kept taking blurry pics :/

thanks for the tip!  i just tried and mine worked but it was only picked up today :( two packages come up though... is that normal?  i wonder if it's the blush (i used that blush code with this box) but i just assumed they would toss it into my box but now that i think about it it might be easier to just send it separately.  i momentarily had a vision of two glossyboxes icon_rolleyes.gif

Gahhh my boxes are literally one town over from me.. Walking distance close.. But it's not scheduled to be delivered until Feb. 4th. So close yet so far away. Keeping my fingers crossed for a nice surprise before the weekend.

I hope I get it early!

I've noticed in this thread & on instagram that the people who received the living proof item also Rec'd the Vincent Longo lip stain and people who rec'd the Potion #9 rec'd the tarte cheek tint. Wonder if that's a coincedence or intentional. Haven't seen any of the tarte lip products anywhere.
And still no tracking! UGH!!

Noooo I just tried the shipping notice trick posted and mine only entered the system today! :(

post #1151 of 1980
Am I the only one the shipping notice trick does not work for??frown.gif(( I guess they did not even ship it yet and I am in the NW so at least another week for the box, crazyyyy
post #1152 of 1980
Mine isn't in there at all yet, but the one I ordered for a fellow forumite is, so I know the trick works on my account. Just not for *my* box. I really wanted to have my box in my hands before cutting bait on this sub just to make sure I got the box, but I might just have to bail before they charge and hope for the best.

ETA: While I'm in the Pacific Northwest, the other box is going to somewhere in the Midwest (I can't remember exactly where). That probably has something to do with the delay. So annoying.

I still have 00000000000000000000s.  Bah.  Slothmail.

post #1154 of 1980

oooh! I found something that makes the nail polish look soo much better.. a topcoat.

post #1155 of 1980

Oh, just saw the trick for the 00000s, and it worked.  Mine say delivery between 2/1 and 2/4.  Only entered in today, which is... annoying.  

 

I have two boxes - regular and a gifty.  They are traveling 4 minutes apart.  Entered 4 minutes apart, departed 4 minutes apart.  I do not think this bodes well for the uniqueness of their contents...

I love the polish...the matte sparkle finish is different and I really like it! I would like more matte polishes...textured ones, too.

post #1157 of 1980

I am excited to try this one/textured polishes in general.  I keep eyeing the OPI Mariah Carey "sand" finish ones but have not yet purchased them!  I just worry about with the matte and sparkles picking up a lot of fuzz/lint since it is winter!

I haven't had that issue with it and I've had it on since this morning :) It's textured, but not THAT textured. And, my polish always chips within hours and this is lasting me, hasn't chipped at all and I worked all day! Pretty impressed with it!

Good to hear!  I am excited to try it!  I just thought with wearing gloves and mittens and what not it may "catch" stuff!  I am excited to see the color in person as swatches are nice but so hard to determine the color/aka how will it look on me?

As far as removal goes, if you don't want to do the foil method and don't want to mess with making your own peel-off base coat, essence has a new peel-off base coat for three bucks! I tried it yesterday with three coats of glitter and one coat of top coat. It doesn't peel off in one strip, but it does come off completely. I'll be using it for this stuff, too.

I wore gloves tonight on my walk home from work and no lint, so hopefully you won't have the issue either :)

Ah, thank you ma'am...I was hoping that was the case. When I saw it said Shipped below Order history and that it said Order Complete...I was like O_o...please don't tell me I should have my box and I don't! However, interestingly enough I was able to take the survey, even though GB said you won't get it till you get tracking email. Oh well lol

post #1166 of 1980

About the polish- I know it's me.  the texturized matte look reminds me of all the times I painted my nails and touched them to fabric or something and ruined them.  I like all the glittery goodness, which I was surprised of for it being a matte polish.

Did anyone get the Mark lipclick last month, in petal? & just so happen to not want it? I know I'm late.. Was going to post on December thread, but doesn't look like anyone's been on recently..

Good to hear!  I haven't tried it yet.  I love purple, but figured there was no way I'd finish two bottles anytime (I'm a mama to a 1 year old....I rarely have time to do my nails anymore)....so when I opened my second box at a mama's meeting, a girlfriend said she liked purple nail polish and I instantly just handed it over to her.  I have to say, getting 2 identical boxes has made gifting easy!

Check the trade thread. I've seen a lot of them up for trade.

Now that I have my shipping tracker, how do I cancel? I've been trying to find the cancel button.
