Haul - Five Below ~~ Funky Fingers


I thought today I'd share the polishes that I've picked up over the last month from Five Below.  A store recently opened within 15 minutes of where we live and now I'm tempted to pop in once a week to see what new polishes they get in.  It's hard not to since they are either $2 each or 3 for $5.  The ones that I have purchased have been over 3 different visits.  In some ways, it feels like limited edition collections since they may or may not be there the next time you go to the store.  And some of these remind me of some glitters from Color Club.  I saw a polish that looked just like For You in the Funky Fingers bottle.  And some of these glitters I'm getting ready to show you also look like one of their new collections (Poptastic Remix).

These are the first 4 I purchased over 2 visits (I couldn't stop thinking about Unicorn Farts - teehee):
Saved by the Glitter, Glitter Explains It All, Glitter Matters, Unicorn Farts (lol)
the name Unicorn Farts?? I can't type it without smiling/giggling  :-)

More recently, I went back to see if there's anything new and came across a few more:
Fireworks, Elsa, (Fresh Paint) Honeydew
Swatch time!  These are all 2 coats on the wheel, plus some - lots - of fishing for the stars of Fireworks and snowflakes of Elsa (I drew an arrow to the snowflake on Elsa).
First 4 I bought, same picture - different lighting/focus:
undies: pinkie - Julie G Tahiti, ring - Sinful Colors Beverly Hills, middle - Julie G Old San Juan, index - Essie Spin the Bottle
pinkie - Glitter Matters, ring - Saved by the Glitter, middle - Glitter Explains It All, index - Unicorn Farts

I can't find my notes, but I believe these are all 2 coats, with a bit of dabbing/placing of Unicorn Farts.

Last 3 I purchased:
undies: ring - Sinful Colors Beverly Hills, middle - Sally Hansen Wet Suit, index - no base
pinkie - 2 coats Honeydew + topcoat; ring and index- 2 coats plus fishing of Elsa, middle - 2 coats plus fishing of Fireworks

My Version of/Dupe list:
Funky Fingers Saved by the Glitter = Color Club British Invasion
Funky Fingers Glitter Matters = Color Club Do the Twist
Funky Fingers Glitter Explains It All = Color Club Go-Go Green
Funky Fingers Unicorn Farts = Color Club Surprise (Celebration collection)

I'm super happy that I managed to find some dupes of Color Club Poptastic Remix (swatches at this link) polishes since I haven't yet come across the display of those anywhere.  I'm still looking for a couple more of those, though.  And in one day I ended up with polishes both perfect for any patriotic holiday as well as any time when it's snowing out - my first snowflake polish!

Do you ever buy polishes from Five Below?  What's some of your best finds?  Have you stumbled across the Color Club Poptastic Remix collection - where??
