Nail Polish Notice

If you didn't already know, nail polishes expire! I found out the hard way when I went to paint my nails Sapphire Siren by Maybelline, and instead of a nice smooth color, found an icky gunky mess. It wasn't that great of a nail polish to begin with, but after some research, I found out that it had probably passed its expiration date. I tried reviving it by adding some clear top coat to thin it out, but no success yet.

After a little research, I discovered that most nail polishes have a small symbol on the bottle that shows how many months it will last. Here are some examples (click to zoom in):

I haven't found one on my Essie bottles yet, which may be a good thing I hope, if it means it doesn't expire. For the rest of them, I'll need to use them fast, or else they're way beyond hope. ◊
