I want to thank my amazing reader T-Rex for this info--she went back to her local Rite Aid after I posted about the unadvertised clearance sale in this post and provided us with MORE info, and it's even better than we thought!
Here's a summary:
Your Rite Aid may or may not have clearance signs next to the existing core collection CQ and Petites Color Fever polishes. This clearance does NOT apply to the new shades I showed you in this post. It looks like they're clearing out existing polishes to make room for the new shades.
If you do NOT see a clearance sign, take the polishes you want up to the register and ask a cashier to scan them. T-Rex confirmed that the following shades were coming up on clearance at her local Rite Aid:
CQ (ringing up at $0.79):
Gem Green (frosty mint green), Halo Pink (sheer looking hot pink), Sunset Blaze (medium frosty burgundy), and Cabernet (vampy creme). There were a couple of empty slots, so there may have been others.
Petites Color Fever (ringing up at $0.99):
Black Diamond (yay!), Violet Frost, Fairy Pink, Twilight, Candy Green, Wild Plum, Snowflake, Empress, and Diamond Envy.
Another HUGE thanks to T-Rex for her investigative work!
