Little Drugstore Haul


since it is Saturday I had time to go shopping with my boyfriend and just went browsing through the polish racks of the local drugstores. And guess what, indeed I got some new nail polishes, which I'd like to share with you. And here they are:

My little local drugstore nail polish haul

As you can see, I got Essence and Catrice polishes, which I will show you a little closer now. Let's start on the left. There we have Lavenderlicious, which is obviously a nice light lavender creme polish. This polish is from their Enter Wonderland limited collection that has been in stores between March and May this year and now was on sale ;) Here's a bottle shot:

Catrice - Lavenderlicious
Then I got from Catrice's recent limited collection Modern Muse the shade Khaki Perry (what a wordplay). This has a khaky or olive green base with golden shimmer. I am curious what that will look like on the nails! At least in the bottle it appears a perfect autumn shade.

Since my boyfriend keeps asking me to do pedis as well, I finally gave in and bought one polish from Essence's Show Your Feet Polishes called Caribbean Sea. It is very nice shimmery dark turquoise color. It is actually more green in person but my camera likes to emphasize the blue... The label on the bottle promises an "anti-bacterial" polish that is opaque in just one coat and "extremely long lasting". We will see! Here is the bottle shot:

Believe it or not, but until today I haven't had a silver polish in my stash, just because I never found the right one. But now I stumbled upon Style for Summernights from Essence's Nails in Style LE. This is a very densly packed shimmer that looks kinda foil-like in the bottle. Can't wait to try this on! Sadly the label prevents the shimmer from showing up on camera, but in the upper part of the bottle you can nicely see this sparkly silver!

Than I found one last bottle of Essence Nail Art Special Effect Topper called Circus Confetti and this one immediately reminded me of Milani Gems or Deborah Lippmans Happy Birthday. This top coat has a clear base that's stuffed with glitter of various colors and sizes. There's green, blue, pink, orange, silver and gold (and maybe even more I haven't seen yet). It has small round and hex particles as well as large hex glitter particles. I have a feeling that this would look great over a black base, don't you think?

Last but not least I took two Tip Painters home. One is almost the same foil-esque silver you've seen above and one is a very nice shiny purple with darker purple and blue shimmer in it. The silver is called Silver Surfer and the purpler is Purple Magic.

That is my little haul for this weekend. Which one do you like best or do you already own one of those? Which one would you like to see first on this blog?
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading,
- Sabine
