Tic Tac Purple

These Tic Tac polishes are crazy! I can't find ANY information about them on the internet. Sometimes they have a sticker on the bottom with a number but it always falls off before I've swatched it. And you never know what kind of finish you're going to get. Now this would probably drive many (most?) of you crazy, but I think it's fun! Only because I can pick them up for $1 a bottle though!
This particular one looks like some sort of special effect on my nails. All three pictures are accurate depictions of this polish in different lighting. The first picture is outside on an overcast day. The second was taken indoors with flash and the third indoors without flash. It looks like a pretty standard creme in the first picture right? The second picture gives you a better idea of the strange finish, maybe like the Orly Matte Couture collection? Looks sort of rubberized. The third picture shows the color acurately when indoors but still with the rubberized look. I love it and can't wait to wear it again!

  1. I've been totally into purple these last few days - it's such a great spring color (and I noticed the irises starting to peek out of the ground today too! I covered them with some leaves... you never know when a late winter frost will hit!).

    Enough babbling - LOVING the purple! Your nails look great too, btw :)

  2. I love this color and for $1 a bottle how awesome!

  3. That is a fun purple! Very cool. I'll see if I can find any of that brand anywhere.

  4. I loved the color and the texture of this polish :) it's a very beautiful purple polish!

  5. I thought the first couple pictures were really cool and wondered how a matte-ish polish could do that, then I realized it was your camera. Still, it's a fun color with an interesting, as you say, rubbery finish. I'd wear it!

  6. I like the third photo the best! The color's so pretty!

  7. Hi Ladies:

    I love this color. I can't believe how blue the color looks in the first two photos and how the lighting changes it into a true purple inside. I would love to wear this color on my toes because I just love purples. I wonder how long it will last on your nails they look so beautiful. The close up swatches look amazing. I am loving your blog with each visit. Kudos.
