Sunday's Shopping (and news for UK readers)

Currently watching: The Voice

Hi girls!

Happy Easter!

Just a short post from me today.

My uncle was recently on holiday in Spain and I felt like updating my nail polish collection so I asked him to bring me back some cheap nail polish from the Asian bazaars over there. Here's what he came back with:


I will show you these in greater detail when I swatch them but I think he chose well; I can see myself using all of these :-)

I also bought some new nail art supplies myself as when I was in the shop Bodycare I noticed these nail art stripers which I have never before seen in the UK:

Each set of three was £1.99 so I thought they were worth trying. Bodycare isn't a shop I often go in but I was really surprised by their range of nail art supplies. Not only did they have these, they also had stickers and nail foils. Plus...in the Technic range of nail polish I spotted a holographic silver nail polish for £1.99! I didn't buy it as I already have GOSH holographic but I thought any ladies in the UK who can't find GOSH holographic, or who don't want to pay £5, may want to investigate this Technic version. I didn't look at it closely so I din't know how good it will be but if you end up buying it do let me know what you think of it!

Bye for now,
Laura

  1. Great piece of advice with the holographic! Despite the fact that Gosh is a Danish brand, it's not possible to buy the Holographic at the moment, it's not being produced anymore here. I've heard they might start producing it again later this year (only a rumour so far), and they say that UK is the first country it shows up in.
    Not fair. I want it!! ;)

    1. Aw, that doesn't make sense at all! But I'd be happy to send you a bottle (and one of Fantasy Fire ;-) )once it's re-released here :-)

  3. I am actually looking for GOSH holographic and have been for a while now (in the UK) and can't find any for £5, its more like £20 - £40 on eBay eek! I hope it does make a comeback!I have the Technic holographic and it is good for the price but it just doesn't compare to the GOSH one :-( x

    1. Ebay prices are crazy! I hope the GOSH one will be easy to find when it is re-released in the UK. Thanks for letting me know what you think of the Techic one!
