Stash Attack! OPI Route Beer Float

Stash Attack! is a feature on BeautyJudy that shares a beloved polish or brand from my polish stash! It’s been at least a year since I’ve done one of these posts, but I’d like to bring it back regularly – I love rediscovering my stash!

I have loved nail polish since I was a kid, buying my first light pinks and other polishes at the five & dime with my mother’s money. The polish brands I bought as a kid – Wet n’ Wild, Love My Nails, Parfait – they were just the start of a life-long love affair.

Growing up, it was all about drug store brands. It wasn’t until Drug Emporium, in the 1990’s, when I bought my first OPI nail polish. Drug Emporium may be out of business, but that OPI is still my absolute, favorite and most cherished OPI – Route Beer Float from the 1997 Route 66 Collection.

Route Beer Float is pre-Big Three Free and ProWide brush. It’s a pinky brown shimmer. It is the perfect nail polish for me.

*sigh* It’s so PRETTY!

I cherish this polish more than my bottle of Clarins 230. *gasp* Yes, I know.

So what polish in your stash do you cherish? Do you remember the first polish you ever bought from one of your favorite brands? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!
