Essie Haul - First Xtras Purchase

Hey everyone! So as I am sure you are all aware I have a *slight* addiction to nail polish. I have always wanted to try Essie polishes but in Ireland they are €12.99 a bottle!? I really could not justify paying that.

I then received Mint Candy Apple as a present and that just made me want even more, so when I heard MissBudgetBeauty talking about a place called www.xtras-online.co.uk that sold discounted Essie polishes I knew I had to place an order and yesterday I finally got my hands on them :D

Not all these colours are still available and they seem to change quick frequently so it is worth keeping an eye on the website. I have also noticed the prices changing slightly so I have just included what I paid (in £ sterling). They also offer free UK shipping on orders over £10.

So on to the colours! All swatches are just one coat!!!! Amazing quality!

Orange, It's Obvious £2.99

Navigate Her £2.99

Tour De Finance £2.99

No Place Like Chrome £3.99

Nothing Else Metals £3.99

Penny Talk £3.99

Blue Rhapsody £3.99

Good As Gold £3.99

Ciate Mini Mani Month Day 7

Hey everyone so we are on to day 7 of the advent calendar and today was a lovely milky pink Cutie Pie 026.
This wasn't as opaque as the rest but is still a lovely shade, this is it with three coats (apologies for the little bits of fluff haha).

Ciate Mini Mani Month Days 1-6

Hey everyone, so as usual I have fallen behind on my posts :( I still have so many sitting in my drafts but decided to get this one up first. So rather than do each day individually I thought I would combine the first 6 days for you. I am in love with this type of advent calendar and will definately be saving up next year to try some other beauty type ones.
So first up is an over view of the 5 polishes (the 6th one is a caviar manicure), I have done them in order of day from left to right:
Day 1: Cupcake Queen 011
Day 2: Dangerous Affair 013
Day 3: Halo 089
Day 4: Caviar Pearls - Prom Queen
Day 5: Cabaret 046
Day 6: Angel Wings 090 So that is a quick look at the first 6 days of the advent calendar, hope you enjoyed! Can't believe how quick xmas is coming around!! It is quite scary! Hope everyone is keeping well! Jennifer x
