There is a story to be told here. I have a fave Ebay shop for nail polish, All Polished Up Nails. Lindsay who runs it is always really, really good; top notch stuff and swift delivery. And great prices and selection, not to mention those :) It's UK based, so postage is better than ordering from USA. Anyway, a while before Christmas I ranted to her in an Ebay communication that I would probably pay A LOT if she could get me China Glaze's Moonpool. As always she said she'd keep her eyes open... I had little hope, knowing that this is one of the items that sell for a fortune on Ebay and is what us nail fanatics is VHTF = Very Hard To Find.
Then out of the blue she emailed me and told me about an auction for Moonpool on Ebay US. She sent me the Ebay number and I went on to have a look. I go on Ebay a lot, but have given up searching for Moonpool (at reasonable prices), so I wasn't aware that there was an auction on for Moonpool. She told me the seller had previously listed Moonpool and it'd sold for about $10. Sweet! I swiftly went bidding.
The auction ended at 02.11am, UK time. I set an alarm to wake up for the end of the auction, and laid in my bed with my laptop and eagerly refreshed the selling page. And I won!! Paid a little bit more than $10 but hey, it still was worth it. Now I am sitting here gazing at the bottle in my office. I can't believe it. My biggest lemming ever has been satisfied. I will never need another nail polish. Until China Glaze Summer Days comes to All Polished Up Nails, of course :P
Isn't she a beauty?.. Who doesn't love Moonpool from China Glaze? OMG! It's a tie with Rimmel Play Fast "Camouflage" for Best Ever Nail Polish... This photo isn't very accurate, it it more vibrant grass green and sparkly in real life.
Thanks a million to Lindsay at All Polished Up Nails for once again providing service above and beyond expectations!!
