FASHION: Nail polish mini haul ♥

Good evening my dears. Hope you're having a relaxing evening, as I certainly am ready for my 3 day stint at work this weekend.

On Monday, me and my parents went in Manchester and whilst my parents were paying, I decided to have a look round the beauty section of TK Maxx. I already knew that TK Maxx did a lot of Nails Inc. box sets but none floated my boat this time but something else did catch my eye, Essie! Yes, I found Essie nail polishes in TK Maxx! I'll be honest, they only had 3 shades and a top coat but one little pack that TK Maxx had made included 1 Essie shade, an Essie top coat and a Barielle shade which is a brand which I've seen many a time but never tried. For these 3 polishes, I spend £9.99 which I thought was a super bargain seeing as how much one Essie shade is in Boots, £7.99 is a lot to spend on one polish. I also found 2 Pixi polishes for £4.99 which I think is amazing seeing as one polish is £8 on the website!

Essie - Sequin Sash
Barielle - Princess
Essie - No Chips Ahead

These were the three shades in the first pack I found in TK Maxx. I didn't have neither of the first two shades in my collection so I thought it'd be the perfect time to give both brands a go as I hadn't tried them before.

No. 26
No. 28
Now, these are my two favourite purchases of the day. No. 26 is seriously one of my favourite polishes, it's absolutely beautiful on and I will definitely be doing a NOTD with it along with the others so I can tell you how I like the shade and brand because I've not tried these three before. My only problem, I wish the Pixi shades had names on the bottles but from what I can gather, 26 is called Purple Shimmer and 28 is called Wine which definitely suit the colours.

I definitely think I saved a small fortune, why thank you TK Maxx :) 


  1. I agree that 7.99 is pricey to pay for a nail varnish but I had no idea that TK Maxx did boxsets! So excited to go to my local and have a gander in the beauty section! Thanks for this post :)

    1. I'm glad I could help :) hope you can find something in your local! xo

  2. Great haul! I'm obsessed with nail polishes!

    Stop by and check out my blog giveaway! :)

    1. I'm obsessed as well :) and oooh, I will do :) thank you! xo

  3. I can't seem to stop buying nail polishes either, they're my weakness along with lipstick and eyeshadow :) That Barielle is such a pretty pink!

    1. I'll need to do a NOTD with the Barielle so you can see how it looks on! I need to stop buying so much, it's not doing my bank balance any good, aha!
