Run, Don't Walk to Big Lots! $1.00 Polish Scores!

Big Lots you say? Yes, that right! My Big Lots is not the best in the chain, especially when it comes to their Health & Beauty section. There is little order to it, and I seldom find anything of real interest. However, yesterday Steph's Closet tweeted about something she found there that made her very happy, so I tweeted back that I was going to check it out. Into the maze that is my Big Lots I went this morning, first picking up some other things I needed, just taking my time getting over to the Health & Beauty section because honestly, I wasn't holding out much hope of finding anything, much less the Holy Grail that she found. I arrived at my cluttered destination seeing what appeared to be the same products I always see there. But wait...what are those beat up cardboard boxes on the bottom shelf hidden behind the cotton balls? Could it be? As I pushed the cotton balls aside, the skies parted and music began to play from the heavens above. I stifled a scream as I lifted it up to have a closer look. Yes. Sally Hansen's fabled Emerald Ring for $1.00.

Above & Below: After my heart stopped racing, I sat down in the aisle to see what other treasures those cotton balls were hiding, and here's what I ended up with, all for $1.00 each.
Below: As long as I was having so much fun, I also picked up another Revlon Dark Pleasures I hadn't seen before, Scarlet Letter. The Borghese is called Capri Coral, and the Palmer's Cocoa Butter sticks are a staple item that usually cost me the same price for one at Walgreen's what I paid for three at Big Lots.
The moral of the story? Just because a store never has anything exciting in regard to hard-to-find polishes, doesn't mean that one fine day, that could change! Thanks to Steph for the tip!

  1. Would you get some for me too!?! Well, nail polish here is ridiculously expensive, even if it's 5 years old and all evaporated...and separated.
    Great find! Congrats!

  10. Ahhh, I can very rarely find anything of interest in my Big Lots, but I will check it out this week, and I won't be afraid to move those cotton balls, if it unearths that! Great finds, Mary!

  11. Seriously I cannot wait to check out my local Big Lots! I personally loved the old Sally Hansen formula and bottles. Hopefully I'll find some good deals.

  12. How wonderful for you! A good reward for all those other times when you found nothing. I prefer the old bottles of Sally Hansen. I haven't been to a Big Lots in years. I don't even know where one is. Guess there will be more swatching going on!

  13. Great finds! I'm liking the shimmers so I'll check out my Big Lots. I got a 2 pack Sally Hansen duochrome this weekend for $1! My greatest find would have to be Sally's Beauty Supply. They were giving 50% off on top of red tag items and China Glaze, Orly, Fingerpaints and Nina Ultra Pro polishes came out to $0.99 to $1.49 each!

  14. Polishes for $1? That's cheap! Like finding a treasure. I've never found anything under $3.50 and even then, it's old, faded and hard as rock.

  16. Sally Hansen Emerald Ring for $1.00??! I am green with envy! (No pun intended.) I have been "lemming" this polish for YEARS. Could you go back and get one for me? :P

  17. I went today and my local Big Lots had nothing in terms of nail polish. What a downer but I plan on looking in a week again.

  19. All~I've fallen behind in answering the comments, I'm sorry! I sure wish there would've been more than the one, I would've picked up as many as I could for giveaways! Good luck to everyone hunting them down!!!
