Today I'd like to share with you my 'mini haul' over the past two days!
First up.. the polish!
|Essie Going Incognito, OPI Steady as she rose, China Glaze Little Drummer Boy|
|Billie Cosmetics Jovile (maroon) and Anxiety (turquoise-blue)|
|Color Club Age of Aquarius, Zoya Gloria and Crystal|
I picked up the Color Club and the OPI while I was scoping out Secret Beauty Supply, which is on Kingsway and Knight street. They have a large collection of nail polish, including an up to date selection of OPI, an assortment of Color Club sets (including Starry Temptress, Wicked Sweet, Alter Ego which are $22.99/set), and a fair number of China Glaze polishes (including the newest Island Escape collection).
The Billie cosmetics nail polish were from a dollar store I stopped by on my way home from the Beauty Supply store.. at $1.25 each, how can you resist? Anxiety reminds me somewhat of China Glaze Atlantis, and Jovile's base colour kind of reminds me of OPI's DS Extravagance.
Now for the polish!
Today I have Zoya Gloria on my left hand, and Crystal on my right hand.
|Zoya - Gloria (3 coats)|
|Zoya - Crystal (3 coats)|
These are my first ever Zoya nail polishes, and I'm impressed! I can't wait for the Summertime/Sunshine collections.. I need to find some store that actually sell Zoya in Vancouver.. I wish I lived in the States.. I have so many empty/messed up bottles of nail polish I could have exchanged.. but oh well. I've already gone through the collection swatches that have been posted online and picked out some of the ones I want to get.. I'm tempted to get Mira, which is a purple creme, just because it's the name of my cousin's baby girl. :)
The Zoya polishes retail for $9 at Spa Boutique.
Secret Beauty Supply requires a membership to purchase items, which can be purchased for $10 and is valid for 10 months. If you do not wish to buy a membership, you can still buy products, but for a 30% price increase.
Note: the China Glaze crackle line (white, black, teal, pink, grey and purple) are sold out at Secret Beauty Supply and will not be available until June)
Well, that's all for today. Do you know of any stores in Vancouver that sell Zoya nail polish? What colours would you recommend?
Ciao for now,
