Poundland Perfection.

Hi Girls!

I've spoken a lot about my recent love for Sally Hanson after buying a few from poundland. I won a couple of quid on a scratch card, & because we were not in dire need of milk, I quickly popped in for a browse.
I've never been a snob, but I loathe buying beauty products at such a cheap price. You get what you pay for after all. However, after discovering how good the SH was, I treated myself. There were no new SH shades, so ended up with Outdoor Girl in Blue  a confetti-like polish from Chit Chat. I've never heard of either brand, but decided to give them a go.

Believe it or not, this was ONE coat. (excuse my poor thumb, I've somehow managed to crack the nail. I will fix tomorrow) It dried so quickly I hadn't even put a top coat on. It's quite holographic, which doesn't convey as well using the camera on my phone. I would have easily paid more for this.

I went over with the Chit Chat polish. This was a couple of coats, & sadly this one does not dry quickly. In fact twenty minutes later, the thumb has come off,  the four remaining fingers feel quite tacky. If I spent more time doing it, & putting a decent top coat on, I think I'd have better luck with keeping the design on. It is quite fun though. In our Poundland, they also did a silver, gold  & purple version. None of them however have an names, so I can't give you any more details.

If you have a Poundland, or a Poundworld near you, please go check it out. Talking with other girls, it seems to vary in different areas. You may be lucky & find some good bargains. I've also managed to get rhinestones & nail art pens. Yay for the random pennies you find in your coat. It's only a pound, so you don't even have to feel guilty. 
Let me know what goodies you discover.

I'll be doing the next challenge either tomorrow or Sunday, so until then...

  1. I've seen that chit-chat one - lovely glittery colours! It's like the one I got from Claire's! X
