Billie Cosmetics - Dollar Tree

***DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY HERE***

Recently, I went to check out a new Dollar Store in our city.  It's called Dollar Tree.  I guess it's not really too much different than most dollar stores..except they have Charleston Chew there..YUMMMM!! I'm addicted to that stuff, can't be good!

While I was there I found these nail polishes by Billie Cosmetics. It says they are made in the USA. There was quite a bit of colours... perhaps about 20-24. They are 1.25 each and the coverage is quite good for a low end polish.  The only ones I wasn't really happy with was the glitter ones when I tested.

 I picked out these 5:

This pretty irridescent blue, is called "Hot to Trot."
This is a white irridescent with sparkles, it's called "Sunray." I don't think I noticed the sparkles that much.
This looks a bit brighter than it is, but it's still a very bright purpley pink.  It's called Electric Purple and even though it looks irridescent it dries pretty matte.
This next one is called "Solar."  It's a really pretty mint green with sparkles.  Unfortunately, when I tested it with one coat the glitter looked funky..like itty bitty pebbles trapped in my polish.
The last one is "Burning Hot." Love that name.  It's an irridescent orange.  It's got swirls of gold in it.  I really like this one and can't wait to try it out a bit more.

Have you seen these before?  Tried them? What do you think?

  2. Never heard of them - but I'm always wary of dollar store products in general - so glad to hear these are pretty decent!

    1. Heheh, yes they had quite a bit of colours there! I didn't like the ones with sparkle as much. I think there are 2 or 3 Dollar Trees in Winnipeg now.
