Nail varnishes I acquired over the last 2 months :O

I think I might have a serious problem regarding nail polish hauls...There are some polishes missing, too, btw.

[click the image to enlarge]

OPI DS series, OPIs, China Glaze, Topshop, CND, Revlon, Essie, Kleancolor, Nails Inc, Orly, Rimmel, Color Club, Accessorize, GOSH, Illamasqua, Ciate, Butter London, Sally Hansen, Rescue Beauty Lounge and Mavala. This makes 85-90% of my whole nail varnish collection. Why I got into nail varnish so suddenly (and forcefully!) I wouldn't know.

Swatch: Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Not a great swatch I know, but I don't have a really good light in my house, so flash will do. Unfortunately, it also means that the colour is not exactly correct. As the name implies, the flakies are more like fuchsia colour not this purple. Depends on the light I guess.

Make Up Store 40% off on nail polish on the 24th August

Makeup Alley is buzzing with this sale! I went into the Make Up Store store today and asked about it. The lovely sales assistant told me this: 

"Go to Make up Store UK Facebook page, Like the page and then you can come to the store and get the 40% off discount on nail polish"

Now, I don't know how will they know that you ACTUALLY liked the page, but hey...that's what she said :P

Anyway, this MUS thing on Facebook has weekly offers. Last week it was eye dusts, this week it's concealers and next week (24th) it's nail polish. It's always 40% off. More details on the Facebook page.

Illamasqua sale in London!

I was in Soho today and went into the Illamasqua store where I found out they are having a 65% off sale on selected items! If you're in London, the store is in Beak St.

Little accidental haul

Well, aren't they all accidental? :D

I think the first proper post is in order! :D Today I went to Superdrug to look for a certain nail polish and while I was there something caught my eye:


New Revlon nail varnish for A/W called Facets of Fuchsia. It's just...bright flakies with a black base? Yes please, I'm taking it

Some more nail varnish porn:

Isn't it gorgeous? Can't wait to put it on!

And some other things I've got:

Revlon again, and new A/W collection again. This is a lipgloss palette called 'Bordeaux in the Snow' It comes with 4 smaller square pots of sheer colour on the top 'shelf' with one big round pot with a bordeaux colour on the lower 'shelf', or in the drawer, as you could call it.

 It also comes with a small brush neatly situated in the drawer. Didn't have time to swatch it today but will soon.

Aaaand some more, this time Sleek!
Pout Paints! Superdrug had a special 3for2 offer!

Also, I picked up these, Ecotools facial buffs

I go through face exfoliators so quickly, I decided to give these a try. Not only it's cheaper in the long run but also ecological and natural.

And because I ran out of mascara I picked up (for the second time) Boots No7 Exceptional Definition mascara. I love it! I think Lipglossiping did a pretty good review on it. 

That's all for now! ;)

Blog about material little pleasures

Because almost everyone's got a material side, right?

I have some (not so) secret obsessions. Nail varnishes, make-up, gadgets...I decided to have a blog just for that, so not to bother people on my facebook :)

I'm a fan of MUA, eBay, clearance and 3for2 offers at Superdrug :P

So yeah, there you go :)
