Essie Starry Starry Night — The Madness Unfolds

Didn't want you guys to miss the chance to see the insanity that is eBay bidding behavior on Essie Starry Starry Night in real time, with your own eyes.

I got this email yesterday:

It started at $.99! Here's what it's up to, as of five minutes ago:

Let's watch the story develop together! What do you think it'll go for?

I'm going to guess... $157.00, and my rationale is this: it'll be high because it's been a couple months since a bottle was on eBay, but not "$295" high since it's no longer the holiday season.

Then again... let's remember that not only the number of SSN bottles in existence are dwindling, but the quality of those bottles is in decline as well. The newest bottle would be from 2008 or 2009, and polish, unfortunately, is not fine wine; it does not get better with age. SSN is a finite resource, with each bottle on eBay becoming more and more of a fabled jewel.

So what do you think? I would love to see your guesses in the comments!
