I've finally had some good light (silly cold days) to take photos of the nail polish haul I recently received in the mail from mbeautylounge.
If you've never been to the website http://mbeautylounge.com/ before and you're from Australia, you may be in for quite a shock at just how cheap some of your favourite brands are on there! They have OPI from as little as $5 US, Essie from $4 US, and China Glaze from around $4 too among a couple of other brands Zoya, Color Club, and Orly.
Despite the prices being so cheap, there is a bit of a catch... the postage can be a little bit steep, which is why my friends and I always make a big order together. But in doing that we also tend to have bad luck with our orders getting mixed up and almost every order at least one nail polish gets missed or we are given the wrong thing. I'm not saying it's not going to happen EVERY time you order from them, but I think it's happened 2/3 times for us, and getting a reply via email from them about rectifying it can often prove a little difficult! So fair warning. Postage also takes a long time - we waited 6 weeks this time around! Try your luck though, it's usually worth it as they almost always have new collections on their site as soon as they are released which is awesome news for us Aussies!
The shades I purchased this time around were:
1. China Glaze - Peachy Keen (from the Up & Away collection)
2. China Glaze - Sugar High (from the Up & Away collection)
3. China Glaze - Flyin' High (from the Up & Away collection)
4. China Glaze - Four Leaf Clover (from the Up & Away collection)
5. OPI - Black Cherry Chutney (from the 2008 India Collection)
6. OPI - Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It (from the Australia Collection)
7. Essie - A Crewed Interest (from the Navigate Spring 2012 Collection)
8. Essie - No More Film (from the Resort 2012 Collection)
I had actually ordered a different red than the OPI - Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It... I had ordered OPI - Red Lights Ahead, Where? from the Holland collection. Just another thing I was talking about with the little "issues" you can have with this site. My friend and I both also ordered China Glaze - Happy Go Lucky from the Up and Away collection and they just didn't send that to us at all, not even one bottle of the 2 we ordered. Sigh.
I really can't complain though. I got a lot of nail polish, for really cheap! Keep an eye out for more of these in my Nails Of The Week posts coming soon. This week I've used China Glaze - Peachy Keen and I'm in love!
What do you think of my little haul? What are your favourite places to buy nail polish? x
