Shopping: OPI, China Glaze and Catrice polishes

Hi y'all!

Last weekend, I went to the Beauty Trade Fair in Utrecht. That's a fair for beauticians, nailtechnicians and pedicures (my mom is a pedicure and I do nails, mostly my own).

But because I read a lot on the internet, for me there were not so much new stuff for nails etc.
Ofcourse OPI had a big stand, and it was sooo crowdy over there, because their prices were very low!
1 polish was € 6,95 (excl. VAT) that is about $ 9,90. At most of our drugstores, OPI polishes cost about
€ 13,95 (± $ 19,85!). At the fair OPI had a great offer: when you buy 12 polishes ore more, the price gets lower and is € 6,50 per bottle (± $ 9,25). So yeah, people went totally crazy over there! :)

Lately I buy a lot of polishes, so it's hard to recognize the colors that you already have in your stash.
And most of the time, I keep looking at the same colors; taupes and pinks have my interest at the moment.
But to prevent buying the same, or almost the same colors you already have, I decided to not went totally crazy, and only bought 3 OPI polishes I really liked:

OPI Don't Know... Beets Me!

OPI - Got A Date To Knight!

OPI - Over The Taupe

They also sold China Glaze on that fair. In The Netherlands, that's a brand that is a bit hard to find at stores. But now they had almost all China Glaze colors sorted on collection. I am looking for a super red polish for a while. And I don't think I exaggerate when I say that I have stood there for almost half an hour, walking back and forth, searching across all the polishes they had, looking for the brightest red I could find. Eventually I made a choice between China Glaze Ruby Deer and Hey Sailor from their latest collection.
In my opinion Ruby Deer is brighter red, and so I made up my mind and bought it, together with Emerald Fitzgerald:

And a couple of days ago, I saw a commercial on tv of my local beautysupplier that they had a great discount on make up and polishes, so again I went to get some polishes:

Catrice Miss Piggy Reloaded

Catrice Lucky In Lilac

I think the Catrice polishes are great colors for spring...

From all of my new polishes the first polish I tried was OPI Don't Know... Beets Me!
What a lovely fuchsia pink!! I sooo love it! It's exactly the same color as my vest (cardigan) and when I wore this polish at work, I got a dozens compliments of how well it matched my outfit! :)

I'm going to show it very soon, keep watching!

What colors do you think of when you think of spring??

Have a nice weekend!

Essence nailpolish with 50% discount!


At my local beautysupplier the Essence products are in sale; 50% discount at products which are normally very cheap and affordable, is ofcourse extra nice!

I got my hands on the following nailpolishes:

 Essence colour & go Choose Me

Essence colour & go Lime Up!

Ofcourse the most beautiful colours were allready sold out, but I'm also happy with these! :)

Yesterday I cut my nails quite short, they're a bit too short for me actually. I put on OPI Tickle My France-y and soon there will be pictures of polishes on my own nails.
Have a great weekend!
