Sweet treats of colour for your fingertips

Beauty-Buys-June-2013-nail-polishesIn June, there were a number of great deals on offer at various beauty websites. I took advantage of this and had a bit of a shopping spree but I spent a bit more than I intended to on nail polishes. I have swatched some of these polishes so the reviews should follow soon.







First up, is the OPI Couture de Minnie collection. I loved the Minnie Mouse collection from last year, and adored the swatches I’ve seen so far of this collection so I decided to put it on my shopping list.

The other OPI colours I scooped up were from the Bond Girls collection. The three I chose were:

With this year’s colour being Emerald, I’ve seen a number of fabulous green polishes pop up on the scene particularly at Nails Inc. I love the colour green and am excited to see the various hot hues other brands deliver this year.  I picked up some of my favourites from Nails Inc and a few others too.

Whilst in Boots, I came across the new Essie Naughty Nautical Summer 2013 collection. These summer ready shades are bold and bursting with vibrancy.

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about the Butter London Friends and Family 30% discount. I decided to use this opportunity to buy some of the shades I’ve been lusting for from their Spring and Summer collections.

Beauty Bay also had their sale and I bought  a few colours from the China Glaze Texture and Sunsational collections.

Marie Claire gave away two mini Ciate polishes with their June issue as well as a 30% off code for all Ciate products.

My final purchases included a brand I have been dying to get my hands on since… forever. Deborah Lippmann polishes are available to buy in the UK from both Beauty Bay and House of Fraser (who are both offering reduced prices on these polishes).  However the polishes available, aren’t from the latest collections. I was fortunate enough to get Mermaid’s Tears as it was originally released early last year and re-released as part of the Mermaid Collection this year.

Of the colours I have swatched so far, I am completely in love with the formulas. I will be working my way quite easily through my June purchases as Summer’s finally here and I have fingers and toes that have been crying out for spalshes of bright colour!
