When I worked at Ed Wyse, I briefly became a salon brand snob. But I had access to OPI, Zoya and CND at below wholesale. I wasn't opposed to buying drugstore brands because I do love me some Sinful. However, Wet n' Wild was not appealing. I didn't know that they had improved their formula so I never picked anything up. That, and the colors were a wee bit tacky for me.
I was terribly excited when the Craze collection was released. Really lovely colors and much better packaging. I picked up Rustic and it is by far my favorite of the bunch. But I could not possibly pass up Shield.
I have to have gold!!
