So Many Polishes, So Little Time!

I cannot believe it has been a month since my last post, and such alot has happened in this time. I had so many good intentions, but within two days my sister broke her leg and is in a cast and I had a new puppy, so time for polish and blogging has completely gone out the window.

However, having recently returned from a wonderful break in Tenerife I am back with a bang. Decided before I got there that I would indulge myself with some new polishes from brands that I can't get in the UK. All good so far, except I didn't realise how bloomin difficult it would be to find the things. All of the main perfume shops have unbranded polish and the usual Dior/Chanel/Lancome etc, but I was really after Essence and Catrice, and in the end I wasn't disappointed.

So, my purchases were...

7 Catrice beauties and from left to right they are...

600 ~After Eight
740 - King of Greens
400 - Blue Cara Ciao
C04 - Be Indieglow
350 - Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans
200 - From Dusk till Dawn
770 - Put Lavender on the Agenda
630 - Sing : Hey, Dirty Lilah!
420 - Dirty Berry

Then some lovelies from Essence

01 - Circus Confetti which appears to be a bit of a dupe for Models Own Ibiza Mix
03 - Hello Holo - a holographic multi coloured glitter
11 - Disco Disco - holographic glitter with holographic glitter squares
09 - Copper'ize Me! Copper/Red/Russet holographic glitter
01 - Purpulicious - holographic purple glitter
10 - Glorious Aquarius - multi sized holographic glitter with square glitter pieces

08 - Love potion - Copper magnetic nail polish
01 - hex hex! - Charcoal Grey magnetic nail polish

L to R
Ciate Bon Bon - Free with Marie Claire Magazine
DP Cosmetics green magnetic polish
Sinful Colours - Opal Glitter
Sinful Colours - Tokyo Glitter
Sinful Colours - Noelle
Sinful Colours - Daddys Girl ( this is a very deep purple with a glitter undercurrent, but doesn't photograph well at all)

L to R

Essence - 77 In Style
Essence - 56 Got a Secret
Essence - 78 Blue Addicted - blue/green glitter
Essence - 43 Wheres the party - a chrome looking colour shifter from green to purple

I cannot wait to get these little beauties on my fingers, just wish I had brought more!


Well, I have had a bit of a bargain over the past couple of days, so I thought I would share it with you. I popped into our local town centre to Superdrug hopefully to get my hands on the new Barry M colour changing polish. But came across a sale on their Accessorize range. All of their metallic one coat chromes were half price! So, I helped myself to one of each on the basis that they would be good to stamp with.. here is a picture of the little darlings...

While I was there I also got my hands on the wonderful NYC Mint Macaroon and Lavendar Cupcake for £2.49, another 2 accesorize normal colours for £1.50 each, a colour changing Barry M ( the original intended purchase). I also was given a free Barry M polish in superdrug by the lovely lady in there, and my husband got me a technic seafoam!


  1. Oh what a fab haul!

  2. I am in love with the Accessorise chromes - can't wait to get my hands on some more. Great haul! x
