I just finished purging my nail collection and I’m already adding more to it. Not a good way to start the new year. My only excuse is this particular nail polish was “the one that got away.”
I remember first setting eyes on Sephora by OPI Spark-tacular! four or five years ago. At the time people were going crazy over Deborah Lippmann’s Happy Birthday multi-glitter polish and it seemed like everyone was trying to dupe it. In the end I talked myself out of getting Spark-tacular! — $9.50 for a glitter polish was too much, I told myself — and settled for Milani Gems and Confetti Tazmanian Devil but I always regretted it.
Fast forward five years and I come across Spark-tacular! at Big Lots for $1.80. It’s fate! Of course I had to get it.
Nowadays Spark-tacular’s probably not as unique or as special as it was back in the day but it’s still different enough from my other two multi-glitters that I feel justified in buying it. In fact I may even go back to Big Lots and get a backup.
