Recent Nail Polish Finds at Claire’s

Disclaimer: Purchased by me.


While in Claire’s around the New Year holiday, I found nail polish I hadn’t seen before, so I picked a few bottles up, because I fell in love instantly!

I’ve been a little long winded this week, so I’ll cut you a break on this post. Let’s just get right to the pretty, pretty pictures!

Flashing Light:

This is two coats of Flashing Light, a bright blue and white glitter mix in a clear base. This is what the brand calls a “splatter effect.”

Midnight Express:

Midnight Express was hard to capture. It’s a dark navy base with lots of holo glitter that looks blue in my pictures. I didn’t try it yet with top coat, but I’m hoping top coat will smooth it out.

Under the Sea:

Under the Sea is a beautiful teal green with blue shimmer. It’s got the slightest hint of magenta in it, too, but it’s not apparent. This is two coats.

Chrome is Where the Heart is:

Chrome is Where the Heart is – what an interesting duochrome! It’s a brown base with a pink and blue shift. With flash, in that first photo, it looks like a brown and green duo but it’s not. It’s so unique in my collection, I love it. This is two coats. I would love to see if top coat evens out the brush strokes but it doesn’t even matter. Duochromes are the way to my heart!!!!

All of these were $4.50, except Flashing Light, which was $7. I think they were buy one get one half off when I purchased them; I feel like Claire’s always has that kind of sale going on.

Have you seen these? Picked them up? Which one is your favorite of the above?!

    I love Claire’s polishes. Yesterday I picked up Under the Sea and Chrome is Where the Heart is. I have the other two duochromes and they are amazing! I swatched them and you can see photos here at lacqueredlori.wordpress.com. That splatter is gorgeous!

    I need to go into Claires more often, I always skip past the store but these are gorgeous!

    Sounds like I need to get to Claires! I had no idea they had great polishes!

    It has been ages since I have walked into a Claire’s. There is an outlet near me that I go to sometimes by accident though. It is located in the food court and I mistake the door to Claire’s for the door outside! I do tend to buy hair stuff when I go in :DD Pretty polishes!

    I never walk in Claire’s so I didn’t know they had such pretty polish.

    I need Flashing Lights!!! There is an outlet mall just up the first exit on the interstate in my town. There’s a Claire’s there and I need to pay them a visit. 🙂

    Midnight express is gorgeous. I haven’t visited a Claire’s in years! It looks like I need to stop by to check out their polish

  • Aleya Bamdad

    I’ve never been to Claire’s before but now I’m going to have to go. These colors are great.

    I love Claire’s for polish. Magic is still one of my favorites! Kinda bummed they changed the bottle design.

  • Amber

    I never would have thought to look in Claire’s for polish, but I’m pleasantly surprised! I love the look of these. There’s some really unique shades in there! 🙂

  • Nidia Doherty

    Chrome is Where the Heart is wins for me! I love multi-chromes. I haven’t been to Claire’s in a while, it looks like they have more new and interesting polishes!

    • BeautyJudy

      Me too, Nidia!!!

  • Anastasia

    I actually really like all of them, and there I thought Claire’s can’t possibly surprise me with unique colors 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

      I didn’t expect much when I stopped in, so I was pleasantly surprised!

  • Tina Helmke Hallberg

    These bottles look like Nails Inc. to me, I actually thought this was a post on Nails Inc. when I saw the photo on Bloglovin’.

    • BeautyJudy

      You are so right!!! What do you think about the change in their bottles?! I don’t really feel one way or the other about it, but you’re right, just like Nails Inc!

      • Tina Helmke Hallberg

        I haven’t tried this brand before (I’m in Sweden) but your swatches look awesome! I really must either get a whole lotta’ money saved up so I can go to the US and splurge on all makeup and nail polish brands that aren’t available here or simply get back into swapping 😉
