Beauty Bargain of the Week - Springtime Nails


Yep you read that right, half price for these little beauties and although they're from last year's collection they're the ideal shades for springtime pingys. 


I usually make it a rule not to buy OPI in the shops here as we pay way above and beyond what is reasonable for nail polish (avg. €12.50 in chemists and shops) preferring instead to buy online. To be honest half price is as much as I'd be willing to pay, even for OPI (my favourite brand).


Have to admit too that creamy pastels are not usually my thing, I'm a magpie through & through and prefer brighter more vivid colours. My mind was changed (slightly) over Christmas, however, when I wore Tickle My Francey  from the OPI Best of the Best Collection. 




As with all OPIs these apply like a dream, one coat opacity and two for a more vibrant result. The longevity is second to none, as is the case with every OPI polish I've ever used (lots of 'em). These fresh pastels are muted enough that they can be worn as shown as a bright springtime mani or mix and match as you feel. Aren't they pretty? 




Yep, they'll certainly be shown some love in the coming weeks. I can even foresee an online order to restock one or two when these minis are no more.

I had Skull & Glossbones & swapped it with a friend because it really didn't suit me, but I kinda want it back now that I see it again... that's serious value! I agree re the price of OPI over here - our local chemist still has half a stand of the Muppets Collection, too expensive. Shall be keeping my beady eye out for the day they're put on the reduced shelf :)
