China Glaze haul!

Well ladies, I finally bit the bullet and visited Sally's Beauty Supply on Drury Street in Dublin on Saturday :)  I'd heard from Sinead from Viva Adonis that they have China Glaze nail varnishes on sale so I knew I had to get my behind in there to check it out :)

These are the beauties I came home with :)  First of all I got China Glaze's Nail Strengthener & Growth Formula which was €7.99. 

For the past few months, my nails have been in bits.  They've been peeling and flaking and I'm not sure why, so I decided I needed to get something to sort them out.  The "Vitamin and Protein enriched formula promotes healthy nail growth.  Protects against splitting and cracking."  It says to apply 2 coats to clean, bare nails every other day for 4 weeks.  And not to apply nail varnish over the coating.  Now, I know I want to sort my nails out but why did I get something that won't let me paint them for a month?!!  I will start trying it this weekend and report back on the results :)

Next we have one of the Anchors Away mini sets and I love it!  This set cost €9.99 which is great value in my book :)  I will swatch these later in the week and show you photos, but so far, my favourite one is White Cap followed by First Mate.  I don't have a blue like that one in my collection, so I'm happy.

Above from the left is Life Preserver, Ahoy, First Mate and White Cap.

I have saved the best for last!  My favourite purchase of the day was Sea Spray.  It cost €6.99 and is absolutely beautiful!  It's a light grey with the tiniest silver microshimmer in it.  I played around with this on Saturday and it's gorgeous!  Especially with White Cap over the top.  I can't wait to paint my nails and show you the loveliness that is China Glaze :)
