I picked up a couple of polishes like a week ago now on an impromptu trip to town. Nothing major but I have been dying to get them! Like I would google them every night to see them on other peoples nail (Weird? yes! Do I do it often? All the time! Am I doing it now?...maybe...)
From left to right: Essence Studio nails 24/7 basecoat, Essence special effects topper in Night in vegas, models own Dream Stream and Models Own Hedonist.
I actually wan't planning on getting these for another while but I grab any chance I can to go to town. I also had to pick up some polish for a swap I'm doing with Theodora (I won't say what they are though ;) )so I took the opportunity to get a new base coat seeing as my Stargazer 114 is on the way out :(
I love essence so I thought I would try out their base coat! It's a cheap but reliable brand. I don't see the point in wearing a really dear basecoat if you can get a cheap one that works! sure you don't even see them on your nails anyway.
This was €2.29 for 8ml.
This was more of a "I don't need it but I'll want it when I get home" polish. I am brutal for talking myself out of buying polish and then kicking myself when I get home (example- Pirates of the carribbean collection) . I like flakies, especially universal ones that you can use over any colour that takes your fancy.
Again I love Essence so I didn't really have to worry about the quality when buying this.
This was €2.29 for 8ml.
You all know that I am a huge fan of coral polish so a coral neon was obviously going to catch my attention. After seeing swatches of Hedonist on Emma's blog I knew I would get it. This is where my impromptu trip became a blessing in disguise. As I wandered around looking at polish I glanced over and noticed a teeny sign saying "Buy one get one half price" on the Models own stand!
This was €7.65 for 14ml
Am i converted to models own?No. I wouldn't say I'll go out and buy a load of their polish now. None of their others polish colours really appeal to me yet but if another one comes out like these two then I'd definitely look into it!
This was €7.65 but down to €3.83 with the offer.
While I was paying for all the polish (including swap items) I got a little voucher for money off of the brand No7. The girl at the till goes "You know you can get more polish with that"! ha!
