Hi everyone. 

After posting a picture of Essie nail polishes for £1.99 each on Instagram and Twitter I got tons of emails and messages asking me where to get them so cheap. Well... the credit goes to Tereza from Cityscape Bliss and she credits Lydia from Lydia Sparkles. Ok, I credited everybody involved in this bargain haunt (that I know of) :)
A big, big thank you goes to Tereza and Lydia for sharing their bargains with me :)

As soon as I heard about this BARGAIN,  I went to and ordered 8 bottles of Essie polishes. I already own a couple of bottles and I loved the formula, so I didn't think twice.
I received my package today and I am very happy with the quality, so I ordered another six bottles :)
I know... I went a bit crazy, but I am in love with ESSIE! All the colours are lovely and need 1 or two coats to give an opaque finish. AMAZING!
To make your life easier, I swatched all the ones I got in my first order and I will probably do some NOTD posts soon as well. If you are unsure about the shades, google them and you will see loads of swatches. That's what I did before placing my order.

The delivery is £1.99 for second class and £2.99 for first class.

Here is what I got:

L-R: Ridge filler, Lady Like , To Buy Or Not To Buy, Carry On, Bangle Jangle, Brooch The Subject, A Crewed Interest,Very Structured.

  2. Fragrance Direct and a few others always have a bunch of great offers! I was gonna get some of these too but my nails are rubbish so didn't bother :(

  3. Tereza sent me there too! But now I have some lovely colours, I WANT SOME MORE. It's terrible. Oh well, nail polish is a necessity, right?!

  4. AH men. If only envy could kill someone I would have died already at the sight of your Essie nailpolishes for a measly £1.99? Say wha? I need these in my life like a second ago. :)

  5. They also have 7% cash back through quidco so makes them even cheaper!! :) x
