Another NOTM

Now this is featuring Gosh's famous Holographic..

Ive been meaning to pick this polish up for agessssssss now, and the perfect opportunity came when selected Gosh items, were 50% off. 
And you know, i couldn't leave this polish just there! lol

This is two coats..  

Leme just say, this polish is a B I T C H to apply.
Just check out my middle finger. And no topcoat, it dries pretty fast. But still, i couldn't use any of my top coats: (CG fast forward, Seche Vite & Sally Hansen Diamond Shine, cos they just moved the polish. 
ah it was so annoying.

On the other hand though, i do like this polish. I can see why it was hyped up the way it was. 
And i am glad that it is part of my collection.

Until next time,

*fyi it is currently 3 for 2 on selected 17 products.

Haul: 11/1/11

(i obviously wrote this yesterday)
Aint it a special day today?.
Anyways, today was my last day of exams so i decided to treat myself to a little Superdrug spree
Heres what i got: 
- 2 Superdrug Essential Facial Wipes- 99p each
- Rimmel's lash accelerator in blackest black, it was on offer, £3 off so i just grabbed it.
- Maybelline's Falsies in Black drama £6.19
- Accessorize nail polish in Bronze  

Oh and i was curious with the hype going on with the nail polish, as its supposed to be a dupe for Mac's Bad Fairy? (correct me if im wrong) Anyways as soon as i got home, i painted it straight on, and here's the outcome: 

The photo's dont do it justice! it looks pretty!. I would defo recommend this colour.
And its only £4, the only thing i didnt like was the brush. I aint used to a short handle and the brush being like mahossive. Shouldve taken a pic woooopppss

Until next time,
