Pound Shop Haul!

With the run up to Xmas I've been visting different places each weekend in the hopes of getting my xmas shopping done early. Now i'm not saying I do all my Xmas shopping at pound shops! but I think they are brilliant for stocking fillers especially when you find items like this!

I bought lots of OPI Crackle Nail Lacquer in Gold, Purple, Green and Black and Revlon Nail Enamels in a midnight blue and a taupe/mink colour all for £1 each! I absolutly love nail varnish so of course I had to get one of each for myself.

I'm guessing OPI Crackle hasn't been a big seller which is why the pound shops have it in but I have to say I love it, it's instant nail art to me and covers up a multitude of nail sins.

Heres a manicure I did with my new haul.

What I Used: OPI Nail Envy I love OPI and their Nail Envy has really helped strengthen my nails so I use two coats as a base coat. I then put two coats of the Revlon Nail Enamel 791 in Midnight Blue ontop and I was really impressed with the shine and coverage. I will definatly be going for Revlon again!

Next, time for the OPI Crackle coat in Crackle Gold! The instructions that came with the crackle say that the basecoat must be completley dry before you apply it. Here are my nails once applyed, I am really happy with them! I just added a OPI top coat in clear to finish it off and done.

And I must say that this is wearing very well, I usually chip my nails the same day but two days on its hanging in there!
