Sunday Stash Sharing - Sally Hansen Gem Crush Polishes


**all items purchased by me

It's time for another Sunday Stash Sharing!  I can't believe how quickly the week has gone by - I suppose it's because I've been extra busy with outside work, plus various other running-around things that needed to be done.  I've also been getting sidetracked very easily lately...   Anyway, on to the polish!  I thought today would be a good day to show my Sally Hansen Gem Crush polishes since they are being discontinued in Walgreens (I'm not sure about other stores, yet).  So I figured it would be better to get this group up while they are still available at a lot of stores - whether full price or clearance.

I don't have the full collection since just before these came out, the Wet 'n Wild Ice Baby collection came out and I think 3 of them were pretty much identical to the Sally Hansen - and I purchased the Wet 'n Wild ones first.  The Gem Crush collection is also pretty full of dupes of polish from China Glaze and an OPI.  So with that said, let's see which 5 I do have.  Dupes will be listed later.
 03 Big Money, 01 Showgirl Chic, 04 Bling-tastic, 07 Showgirl Chic, 06 Razzle Dazzler
03 Big Money, 01 Showgirl Chic, 04 Bling-tastic
07 Lady Luck, 06 Razzle Dazzler

Dupes for the ones I do have:

  • Showgirl Chic is a dupe of China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara
  • Bling-tastic is a dupe of OPI Gone Gonzo

If you're curious/for your reference, the names of the ones I did not get and they're respective dupes: 
  • 02 Cha-Ching! is similar to Wet 'n Wild Rockin' Rubies; also a dupe of China Glaze Love Marilyn 
  • 05 Be-Jeweled is essentially identical to Wet 'n Wild It's All In the Cut
  • 08 Glitz Gal  was too similar to Wet 'n Wild Diamond in the Rough; also a dupe of China Glaze Some Like it Haute
Side note here: Wet 'n Wild recently re-released most of the Ice Baby collection (might still be available at some Walgreens) and some of the Ice Baby polishes are also renamed in the Fergie line.  Couldn't hurt to check the Spoiled line, as well.  **EDIT:  The re-released polishes are not the same polishes as the originals.  Check out Frazzle and Aniploish's post comparing them.**

Do you have any of the Gem Crush polishes in your collection?  Are you planning on getting any (especially if you see them on clearance)?  And of course, let me know if you'd like to see any of these on the nail soon!
