Sweet treats of colour for your fingertips

Beauty-Buys-December-2014I’m finally back from my holiday and I feel like I’ve missed so many great Winter nail polish releases. Before I left, I planned on buying a lot of nail polishes that I couldn’t get in the UK, mainly Indie polishes. However, things didn’t exactly go to plan…











My biggest purchase was made over the Black Friday weekend at Floss Gloss. For years I’ve longed over their bold, vibrant colours and wished I could get my hands on them. FINALLY I did! Whoop whoop! I believe they were offering a 40% discount so I didn’t need much convincing to make a purchase. Unfortunately I had to return to London before the polishes were delivered and after receiving AMAZING customer service from Janine of Floss Gloss herself, my polishes were delivered safely to London within a week of postage! To say I was impressed would be an understatement!

Whilst in Miami, I visited ULTA for the first time. I bought a few nail polishes but most of my money went towards makeup purchases.

Ginger + Liz is another brand I’ve also wanted to try for a few years and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw them in store. There was a very limited selection so I only picked up a couple.

I popped into TJ Maxx and like the UK, they were also having a serious sale here also. I found these Essie polishes and couldn’t resist buying them.

My next stop was Sephora! I was thrilled to see what all they hype surrounding Sephora was about. I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped as I walked into the store for the first time.  It was like a gigantic beauty haven. Makeup and nail polishes galore! I bought a couple polishes but again my purchases were mostly makeup items from NARS, Stila, Tarte, Kat Von D and Too Faced. I now understand why many US bloggers/vloggers say one can easily get carried away in Sephora.

Back in the UK, I picked up a few polishes in TK Maxx.

So many polishes and not enough fingers! Once Christmas is over, things should settle down a bit and I will be back to swatching and my To-Swatch list is getting longer and longer and longer!
