Happy Sunday! Welcome to This Week in ALU Pol-history a new feature where I’ll transport you a la Mr. Peabody’s WABAC (wayback) Machine to check out my favorite past polish posts. Newbies and old school Fanatics, take a look and see what you’ve missed!

August 2008
The comic book themed Operation Colour collection from China Glaze flew into town with an unexpected punch of color for fall.

We talked about buying polish based solely on name in Fanatic Feedback.

Misa knocked me out with Toxic Seduction (a green, duh!) from the Poisoned Passion collection.

I had a flashback to the grunge era 90′s due to the flannel inspired colors from the China Glaze Rodeo Diva set, Flannel Fixation, a gorg set of jewel tones.

August 2007
American Salon Magazine showed us alternative uses for polish when they painted some adorable dog figurines with their fave fall shades.

I put Poshe Top Coat to the test in my 5 day challenge to see how it wears when using 3Free and non-3Free base/polish combinations.

China Glaze introduced the collection that made MUA nail board searches irrelevant; the roman numeral themed 10th Anniversary X Collection.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend Fanatics! What’s on your tips today?

Peace, Love & Polish, Michelle

    Hi! Thanks for the flashback! I just added a couple older polishes that I want to get due to checking out a couple of these older posts! Today I'm sporting Quirius The History Night with Nfu Oh #40 and Konad plate S2 with Sky Blue Special Polish :) I'm getting my genie on today :) Have a great Sunday!

    Good idea with this flashback feature. As a recent reader of your blog, I find it very handy.
    Today I'm sporting OPI's Bronzed to Perfection from the South Beach Collection.
    Have a nice end of weekend too!

    I like the new flashback feature! It reminds me of polishes I wanted and didn't buy for whatever reason.
    Today I have your Barielle Polished Princess on my tips and I am LOVING it!!!!!!!! I've gotten tons of compliments on it as well!

    I love the flashback posts idea!
    I forgot how much I liked some of those China Glaze X polishes… and they would be perfect for fall. :)

    I've got on MAC's Beyond Jealous and I'm totally sad because I wanted to love the darkened teal green-ness of it, but it just looks black on me. Tristeza.

    PS… Congrats on the Mismas mention in ALLURE this month. :D
