Bought myself some basics on ebay.
CND Stickey which is a base coat I have read good reviews on:
and another bottle of Seche Vite as a quick dry top coat:
Also purchased Essence Irreplaceable (in the new shaped bottle) (not my photo):
Finally, I got my Shellac done yesterday. Rubble with a gold glitter topcoat on the ring fingers. It's a nice mushroom brown colour (not my photo):
Irreplaceable is in the new bottles?! I need it!!!
Does anyone use OPI Nail Envy? I'm saving my Boots points to buy it, it's really dear and I'm wondering if it's worth the expense.
Got that colour done recently - it's lovely one. I even went and bought an OPI colour in a similar shade afterwards.
Same! I heard they discontinued it! need a back up asap
That Essence in Irreplaceable is gorgeous! MUST find this!
I seriously love Essence and Catrice nail polishes - I always come out with 7 or 8 at a time!
Gah, it's actually 'Cookie Love'. I thought I was buying Irreplaceable, just went by colour.
This is cookie love (from google images):
Im using it, I bought the original and got the matte free, I use the matte as a base coat. My nails have improved a little bit but they were in a really bad state so im giving it time. Ive been using it properly for about two weeks now.
It'l be a while before I have enough points, I'd love to know how your nails are in another few weeks if that's not being too nosy?!
Ah irreplaceable, too good to be true! Just had a look at the website and they've actually discontinued a truckload of color & gos, one of my stockists is selling the old bottles off at 65c a pop, have bought most but definitely going back for back-ups of stuff like A Lovely Secret, Sure Azure, Galactic Black, Rich & Pretty, You Belong to Me, & Blue Addicted, gutted they're being discontinued.
We don't even get the sale ones! they just get rid of them
oh and here's a mani just to brighten up all the gloom
Models own Hedonist from the Hed kandi collection
I found another of the OPI Grand Slam collection in TK Maxx this afternoon. That means I have 3 of them now. Don't like the 4th one, so this will be it.
Essence "The Huntsman"
Barry M "Strawberry Ice Cream"
For anyone who lives in Dublin, just to let ye know, I was in clearys in o Connell street yesterday and they have loads of the standard essence
Polishes for half price. I couldn't resist and picked up about 12 of them for a bargain of €7. They have loads of browns and purples and then there's a few others aswell but I'd day they're going quick.
Ehhhh i SWEAR this wasnt intentional, kinda embarrassed how freaky matchy matchy it is but did the nails earlier on this aft so thats the first pic. Had a cuppa in my PJs when my flatmate came in and she breaks her heart laughin..took me awhile to cop.
My lines were a bit too wonky but overall I'm happy enough with this.
