On Sunday I quickly stopped into my favourite TK Maxx whilst making our way back from my friend’s wedding. I don’t very often get to stop into it as I’m rarely “that way” but they always seem to have a great selection of stock and people seem to stay relatively ‘respectful of the makeup’ (e.g no fingers swatched in eyeshadow palettes with giant chunks taken out’) and their handbag selection is often stocked with the best too (it still haunts me I didn’t buy the Alexander Wang Rocco I saw in there!)
I picked up 4 nail related items, although I was close to picking up a Too Faced Palette as it was a total bargain but most of the colours weren’t truly ‘me’ shades so I decided to put it down and be a good girl! (Or just save more pennies for Italian makeup shopping!)
First thing I spotted was this Ciate Nail Polish Remover Pot (£1.99), one where it has a sponge to dunk your finger in and sweep the polish off quickly and easily. I’m starting to run low on nail varnish remover, and I’ve always loved these for ease. I’ve not had the best of luck with Ciate polishes, so here’s hoping their nail care is slightly better, oh and it’s scented as Mint Choc Chip, need I say more why I got it?
Next up was a NARS polish, there was loads of NARS polishes and I got excited with about 20 all lined up – but they were all exactly the same shade, Purple Rain (£4.99). Whilst predominately purple, online swatches showed that it had a fuchsia and blue sparkle. I can see me wearing this a lot going into Autumn.
Lastly I spotted a little white box tucked at the bottom of the display, and when I pulled it out it was another NARS product from the Limited Edition Pierre Hardy collaboration. I was hoping it would be one of the nail polish Duos (£9.99) I had been eyeing from the collection but never purchased and it was! This is the duo in ‘Ethno Run’ which features a dark navy cream (Ethno Run Right), and a bright yellow toned orange cream (Ethno Run Left). I have nothing like Ethno Run Left at all that’s this yellowy, and the navy cream I have is a terrible formula so I’m hoping after the success of the first NARS polish I tried, that the three I picked up will have been a good investment!
A rather small, and maybe a little boring haul – 3 NARS polishes and a nail varnish remover! But I hope you enjoyed it regardless! I’m hopefully not buying anything else now until heading to Italy on the 23rd! I’m planning on doing a post on what I’m planning to try and find whilst there, but shopping is going to be bottom of my list to do. If you’ve been and have some recommendations please send them over, I’m struggling to find information on Italian Brands/Brands they have that we can’t get here!
