Boy! Have I had a frustrating time tracking down the new collection from China Glaze called Desert Escape.
Official word from the company itself? None. It’s like they don’t want anyone to find it and buy it. Several bloggers have posted with apparent certainty that the collection will be exclusive to a web site called Lock & Mane, a mostly-hair care site, and it’s not released yet. But various and sundry sellers on eBay have been selling the six polishes for weeks.
Finally, despite no help from China Glaze, I found it by Googling “Tribal Council” because I reallyreallyreally wanted the mini set, and that’s its name. Guess who has it? Sally Beauty Supply. I no longer live near a Sally store, and I always found their stock iffy anyway, but Sally had it in stock online. This isn’t a desert mirage, because I ordered it yesterday and it has already shipped. Woot.
I’m hoping I’ll love the dark metallic rose gold, Meet Me In The Mirage, so much that I’ll want a full-size bottle, but I wanted to try all six. The price is $12.99 for non-Sally members, plus shipping. I wish I could have found more polish to add to my order but the web site is
hell heck to navigate and peruse.
Have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend, everybody. Hope your weather is great and that you can get out and do fun things. Also, remember the reason for the holiday. See ya on the flip side!
P.S. A rose gold star for you if you recognized the title of my post as being a nod to the jazz song “Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby.” http://youtu.be/dc_binFMZdM
EDIT: Of course, an hour after I post, I see that the collection is up on Head2ToeBeauty, the full-sized bottles and one trio/art kit. No mini kit, and those entries weren’t there yesterday!
