Several months back I was in my local Giant grocery store ... probably in to buy sour cream for TACO NIGHT! As always I peruse the most important isles ... makeup department. My eye caught a plastic stream holding several OPI's. I was like "say WHAT!?" OPI at Giant, that's ludicrous! The color selection was all over the place, from old to new, weird. I saw Shimmery-chic from OPI's Holiday Wishes collection, which has some flakie in it. Unfortunately, I find it to be way UG and passed; had it been Merry Midnight I would have peed my pants and paid full price.
Then another day, another TACO NIGHT later, I again saw OPI this time at a different Giant. Cool dude! So I'm checking the strip and when I finally get down to the bottom I find this:
I peed a little. I peed not because I was looking for it or particularly wanted it, but because I know lots of people are looking for this color on MUA. I thought yeay! maybe I can swap this for that Merry Midnight I want. :D
There happen to be an SA in the aisle restocking shampoo. I went over and asked whether there was another place that had OPI displayed. She said, "that's not an item that we normally carry, it was sent by the shipper." I don't know what the hell the second part meant, but she was clearly breathing heavily and slightly out of it, so I said, "thank you" and started walking back to the strip to see if I had missed anything. As I was walking away she said, "did you see the Cover Girl display?!" After my brain got done laughing really hard, I told her, "oh yes, thank you."
So ladies check your local Giant grocery store for a possible WIN!
