Last weekend Mr. G and I went to the local swap-meet here in San Diego called Kobey's. I hadn't been there in a while, but I remembered that the last time I went, there were beauty-supply vendors who sold cheapie polishes, so I kept my eyes peeled for some.
To my surprise, there was a vendor who had tons of KleanColor and Santee Plus polishes (I included a link to the KleanColor site, but I don't believe Santee has a website. I did find a decent assortment of Santee polishes on this site, though. FYI, I have not ordered from that site--I'm just including the link for reference). Both of these brands are impossible for me to find in local beauty supply stores and they were all $1 a piece at the swap-meet, so, SCORE! I picked up two KleanColor polishes and one Santee polish, and I wanted to show them to you in case you have access to these brands!
The first is a neon mint green by Santee:
Santee Plush Vikini Green
I sometimes have a horrible time applying light neon shades (they can be so streaky) but Vikini Green was a delight to apply. In these swatches, I'm wearing three coats, but I totally could have gotten by with two. This is by FAR the brightest light green of my collection.
On my ring finger, I'm wearing an "accent" color, which is a glitter by KleanColor:
KleanColor Sparkle Emerald (on ring finger)
Next up, I got a pretty rose-colored metallic foil from KleanColor:
KleanColor Pearl Fuschia
And because of the current crackle craze, I decided to put a coat of Barry M Instant Nail Effects (click here for my review and video of this crackle polish) over both the Vikini Green and Pearl Fuschia, just for fun:
Do you own any Santee or KleanColor polishes? I'm pretty new to both brands, so I'm definitely open to suggestions!
