Small shopping trip

Hey dolls!

Sorry for not posting for a short while, where have these past few months gone! A few weeks ago me and my bestie decided to go to Sallys after work and see if there were any bargains to be had. When we eventually found the place I can't really say I was overlly impressed but I did pick up a few bits. 

I found a few OPI polishes in the clearence section at the back and eventually picked up these two.



They were £2.99 I think each which of course is a lot cheaper than they are when they're full price (they are over £10). I have no idea if they are in the clearence seciton as they are being discontinued or anything, or if they get cheaper the longer they have been around - I have never bought or really been interested in buying OPI polishes. I like nail polish but the idea of parting with over £10 for a bottle kills me! The colours I picked up were (from L - R) It's Sheer Luck and Los Cabos Coral.

Also in the clearance section I picked up these three polishes, brands I have never heard of -




I picked the Attitude polishes because I thought they looked gorgeous colours. When I came to using them they are both completley different consistencies, the pink is thick and really only needs one coat where as the grey one is practically see through! God knows how many coats you would need for this one - I didn't have the time to find out so just took it straight off. I bought the Black 'Nina Ultra Pro' one because I really want a black polish that is quite thick to be able to use on my Konad - my Barry M polish is rubbish and I hoped this would be better; it isn't, so I'm still on the lookout!

On my way to the tills I passed the China Glaze stand and I really took to this flurescent pink polish. I think it was £3.99 with discount. I really don't know why I keep buyinh China Glaze polishes - the colours are gorgeous but I just can't stand the thin and runny formula. I put this on my toes and it looks totally different on each foot - one looks like its got hardly any one, the other looks just alright, although both have the same.





Lastly I picked up some more of these lepoard print strips - I absolutley love them, it's just a shame they get used so fast! I get approx two uses out of them, one strip pretty much does ten fingers.




After eating a scrummy Nandos at the White Rose we headed down to Boots where I picked up some of Boots Cucumber Wipes which smell soo fresh and gorgeous! I went in with the intention of buying a clear nail varnish and a powder and ended up deciding I needed a new foundation. I have read a few people of Twitter saying they love MaxFactor Second Skin Foundation so I decided on this. Rimmel had 3 for 2 on so I picked up a Stay Matte Powder plus another Sun Shimmer Bronzer - I absolutely love this, it is a total staple for my make up collection every year.


The third Rimmel product got me totally excited as I didn't even know it exsisted! I have been hankering after a matte topcoat for ages but like I said I don't like spending an awful lot on polish! When I saw this I couldn't wait to try it and I haven't used a normal topcoat since I bought it. I also love the brush shape! It's so easy to use!



Have you got any of these polishes?

  12. I bought the Rimmel top coat today... can't wait to try it out :)

    Shame about the rubbishy China Glaze formula, as that colour looks lovely... I have a very similar one in Barry M which I am going to try the matte top coat over I think...
