No.7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour

I got a No.7 voucher the other day so I thought I would have a look at the nail polishes. I usually just buy clear polishes. Put this colour caught my eye. usual price €9 but was only €1.50 with voucher.

I just checked the boots website and it says its suppose to last up to 5 days.

Good points

  • It only needed too coats and I didn't have to put a pink base underneath. I used Revlon's Nail care base coat (clear)

  • There was no need for a top coat. It has a sheen effect so I didn't think it was need.

  • I kept a eye of the when it started to chip. Day 1 was fine no chips, Day 2 was good to, Day 3 was when I started to notice the edges where it was wearing off and day 4 was when it really started to chip.

  • It didn't smudge at all

Bad points

  • It didn't last up to 5 days like it says

  • Only 10ml bottle. The Revlon polishes are 14.7 ml and both are similar prices

Jewelry bargain of the day

I popped into Cleary's today wandered into Bay!

They are selling loads of Jewelry and accessories from €1.75 to €2.50.

This is what I picked up

The hair clip reminded me of something that Katy Perry would wear.

I got the Charm Bracelet and Chain of the Eiffel Tower Charm. Love the little pink bow

The ring is cream and Silver and it says 'Perfect' and just some badges. Not sure why I got these just liked them!

Bargain of the month

I was recently in Debenhams (Dublin) in the sales and I noticed a huge group of woman at a stall. I was like god that's strange. I looked up and there was a sign saying everything €1. Sure there is never anything going for a euro nowadays. So I was over like a shot. My poor mammy was left with my bags!

I picked up eye shadows, lipsticks and lip glosses.
Some of them had being testers or had just got a bit messed up. I made sure to clean them with rubbing alchol before I used them and they were grand. There was still loads of product left in them. For everything it was €17. sure one eyeshadow had €15 price tag!
Best make up bargain :-)
