I Must Really Like This Color, #1

Posted on: May 12, 2012

This is China Glaze Limbo Bimbo. I bought this polish early on in my addiction. I’ve never really worn it. I’ve told this story before on my YouTube channel, but for many years, 15 plus, I had acrylic nails. I always got the French tip with a slight pink top coat. A couple of times a year I would get a hair and have my nails done in a bright fuchsia duo-chrome color that was by OPI. I felt so wild and rebellious when I did that. When I saw this polish it reminded me of those days. That is why I bought it.


I wonder why I bought all these other fuchsia duo-chromed?


These are all alike. Here they are swatched on a wheel.

These are Wild Strawberry from Revlon, and 5 Inches of Seduction from Venique, along with China Glaze Limbo Bimbo in the middle. I’ll be honest, in the past week I have sent 2 other bottles of the same color to friends. I sent Zoya Lola and Nubar Fuchsia. Those 2 were exactly like these 3.

I did the math. That’s a total of 5 fuchsia duo-chrome. Huh?

Do you do this? Buy the same color over and over? Anyone? Please tell me you do!

This is #1 in my new series called “I Must Really Like This Color”. Sadly, this isn’t the only color I have multiples of.

Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to leave some love!

I do this with lipstick! I have quite a few in the same color (more or less) and when I go buy more lipstick, I buy the same color again…


LOL! Great new series. I do this all the time with all kinds of things. I’m particularly prone to lipsticks and eyeshadows.


Yep I have done it more than once!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
