Thermal. Or Not.

Thermal. Or Not.

When I discovered a thermal polish at Poundland I was SO excited. I really, really want a thermal polish – along with jelly and glow in the dark polishes they seem to be the preserve of indie brands and are thus (justifiably) expensive. Thermal polish for £1? What a coup! I rifled through the three or so different colours and settled on a beautiful purple colour.

Bargain Alert: Sally Hansen Sugar Coat at Poundland

Bargain Alert: Sally Hansen Sugar Coat at Poundland

I find it more or less impossible to walk past a Poundland without popping in. They so often have such awesome stuff in – if you don’t mind being a bit behind the fashion curve then you can pick up some very cool polish for a fraction of the original price. Way back in September when I was a fledgling blogger I picked up 6 OPI Shatter polishes. I’ll admit, they’re not so useful all the time but my latest find is something I’ve wistfully gazed at on multiple occasions on other blogs: Sugar Coat by Sally Hansen. When I found out these were in Poundland, I was right in there, buying up every colour I could get my hands on!

Swatched: Tara’s Talons Treasure Trove

Way back in October last year, I subscribed to Tara’s Talons Treasure Trove, a £20 subscription box of Tara’s Talons polishes and other goodies. These beauties have been sat in my pile waiting to be swatched since they arrived in November. I get the box every two months and I’ve got this months box now waiting to be swatched as well! Hopefully it won’t be another two months before I get around to those though…

I love surprise polish boxes – you never know quite what you’re going to get….

Wishlist Wednesday: Barry M Classic Matte Collection

The observant among you will have noticed that at the time this post goes to press I am still 4 days short of finishing the 31 Day Challenge 2013. I am still working my way through those but I’m starting to branch out my interests a bit. This post is the first in my Wishlist Wednesday series – a post where I can share what pretties I’m currently lusting after!

Barry M was one of the first make up brands I ever really loved – several years ago when it wasn’t cool to be emo, they were the only brand I could get black and purple lipstick and brightly coloured eyeshadows from. Now I’m pining for a different set of their products – the new Classic Matte Nail Paint range.

There are five nail paints in the Classic Matte collection: Caramel, Vanilla, Mocha, Crush and Espresso. nuthin but a nail thing swatched all five on her blog when they came out last week and I want them all!
