Stash photos: my untried Revlon Street Wear polishes!


A little something different this morning: some stash photos! I only have about a dozen more Street Wears that are actually tried but I attempt to keep my trieds separate from my untrieds. Hence, this photoshoot was only of my untried ones...





















Hope you enjoyed the pics!

wow, 3 versions of grape and gras stain?

hmm- do charming and prince charming look the same? they seem to be holo's or at least foils :D

Stephanie said...

...wow.

Sigh, FX Flash is the bane of my existence right now. Ebay users do not know how to use ebay!

~Elizabeth aka Lacquered Lizard said...

Ahhh such memories you bring back for me, I had so many of these...and discarded them when I needed to move into this smaller space. You've shown here some I'd forgotten I had! I always remember Blood (the darker version) and Gun Metal (not shown) but I'd completely forgotten I had Midas, Forest, Hologram, Groovy and Forbidden. Now I regret giving them away. *sigh* Loved this post. :)

Alisa said...

Wow, what a great collection.

féline-alizarine said...

Awesome! Have to admit I already took a sneak peak @ flickr, though. ;) And I have to ask: what is the difference between the first two Grapes, and the two Grass Stains (except the sticker)? Is the first Grape a little more blueish to its shimmer than the second?

Michèle said...

Awesome collection! Wow @ FX Flash!!

Apaige2u said...

Untrieds?!? *THUD* I'm speechless!! Jealous, but speeachless!! You go Flinty!! No, really, go!! Go swatch them - ALL!! :-) (I guess I wasn't so speechless after all!)

mKat said...

That second Toad is SOOOOO pretty.

rmcandlelight said...

Wow what a collection! I really love Flashy!!

flinty said...

@amused: they do look similar but I think Prince Charming is a bit more seafoam green (they both have holo glitter)

@stephanie: I take that as a compliment. :)

@daydream: Seriously, get yourself to Manhattan sometime to the dusty where I found FX Flash. There were half a dozen left when I was there.

@elizabeth: Aww, that's too bad. That's what I fear most about trimming my stash: not knowing if I'll miss certain polishes.

@alisa: thanks!

@feline: LOL, I'm always surprised when I see people following my Flickr since I generally just use it as a holding pen for videos and pictures I post to MUA.
Re: Grape, yes, one is more blue and one is more purple.
Re: Grass Stain, I'm not sure if the sticker is the only difference. I think one may have more gold shimmer but maybe they don't.

@apaige: Yeah, I'm overrun with untrieds. Why I keep buying is beyond me. It's starting to feel like a sickness.

@mKat: It is! I keep on meaning to try it sometime. It's one of the handful of SWs I bought from eBay.

@rmcandlelight: Started collecting SWs?

@Niki: Thanks! I really like the look of Flashy myself too. I wonder how it applies though... ah well, I guess I'll find out sometime.

Oh, I'm so jealous! I love street wear polishes, but only have 5 that i bought way back when... a lot of awesome colors!

Drooling here!

Deez Nailz ~ where the CANADIAN Bloggers at ? said...

wow - this was an awesome post! thank you soooo much for compiling these photos - I know there is also someone out there who has a serious collection of SW photographed.....

Lexelle said...

How many Revlon Street Wears do you currently own (trieds and untrieds)?

WizardsOfBling said...

WoW! You must have everyone ever made!

ReaderRita said...

I MISS STREET WEAR! Thank you for this post- it brought back some lemmings... I want Revlon to bring these back!!!! Love, love, love...

Cali369 said...

um, awesome - can you ship that dusty over to the uk please ;-)

flinty said...

@Another bottle of polish: I don't know why they ever discontinued this line...

@shortandsweet: LOL :)

@Deez: Yeah, that's Pretty-Random, who has, like, the ultimate collection of photos of SW bottles.

@Lexelle: I only have about a dozen ones that are tried so... how ever many I posted here plus 12...

@wizardsofbling: Nope. I wish!! There are at least 200 SWs out there.

@ReaderRita: I think the time is ripe for SWs to make a comeback. People are wearing more color and glitters than they have in years!

@Cali369: I'll get right on that. ;)

PolishPig said...

Arrghh, is it true?
200 Street Wears? I'll never get them all.. :-D

I'm so lucky to have a polish hoarding passion, I will never run out of fun.

Bunny Masseuse said...

I only found one of my old SW polishes.. the right most TOAD version you had that sparkles, it was dried up and it was from 1997 (or so I think the copyright on it was) and I had to revive it.

JQ said...

I had a metallic looking Grass Stain, Forest and I think Mean in High school and they got chucked when they got goopy. I never knew about thinner back then. This post made me crazy! I really wish they'd bring them back!
