Anyone remember Jane?

As a collector of all things vintage and polish - there are certain brands that have a special nostalgia to me. The two that REALLY remind me of my teenage(ish) years are Afterthoughts (YES! Remember buying your scrunchies there?!) and Jane. I loved all of Jane's cosmetics. In fact I still have a purple Eye Zing that's great. Anyhoo, Jane polish is rare to find. I ALWAYS look on eBay but with no luck. I recently hit gold at my beloved thrift store and found this purple beauty - Shock Value. I think I stood there for a few minutes holding it in my hand pinching myself. :) I NEED MORE!!! This is two coats. If definitely needed thinner but I love how this purple shimmer evened out. 






Anyone else have any Jane's? Can I have them? :D hehe

  6. HAH! I'm pretty sure I have this exact same polish sitting in my collection that was gifted to me by my old neighbor. The label had worn off on it so I didn't know what it was. I guess I should swatch it now, eh? ;)

  7. I had that purple Jane polish. ;_; I threw it out like a year before I got into nail polish blogs and found out about thinner. I also threw out a holo glitter polish from Jane. And most of my other polishes from when I was younger. I could just kick myself.

  8. There's a new Jane cosmetics out this month on drugstore.com. Don't know how they'll hold up to the old stuff, or if they'll do polish.
