A little OPI Giveaway - And some Bargain Nail looks from NailPolish.co.uk with OPI and China Glaze

I hadn't heard of NailPolish.co.uk before they contacted me, but now that I have I am rather worried about how I'm going to keep my nail polish collection in control. I've just been very very good and passed on a large amount of my old polishes, that I no longer use, but with sites like this around it's going to be hard to not fill that space right back up again! With OPI polishes between £4.95 and £6.96 and China Glaze from £2.95 to £4.95 amongst many other brands and prices, and with free delivery over £15... you can see my point, I think. 



I was asked to pick two or three nail polishes to feature on the blog and it was great fun going through the clearance section and discovering quite how many festive, beautiful polishes were available for such amazing prices. 

So imagine my surprise when this amazing bundle of goodies arrived through my door - As well as the polishes I'd requested I was sent a few tools to give an example of the other items they stock sometimes. 

Unfortunately, one of the OPI polishes that I requested had gone out of stock by the time my order went through (You can guess how quickly these sell at such amazing prices!) so the team picked me a different option. They picked So well, though, that the replacement they sent 'Sleigh Ride For Two' by OPI, is one I already have! So rather than fuss with returning it we agreed that I'd run a giveaway for one of you lovely people to win it, so if you want to know more about that, pop to the bottom of the post. 


These are the three nail polishes that they sent me - Top left is 'Sleigh Ride for Two', top right 'Sprung' and bottom is 'White on White' by China glaze. 


'Sleigh Ride for Two' is the polish that you'll have a chance to win and it's a gorgeous deep plum with a really subtle shimmer to it; it's perfect for winter and makes a nice festive shade if you don't want to opt for reds and golds every time. 



I've taken pictures of this one from two angles as the shimmer is so subtle that it doesn't show up so easily on camera, but I think I've managed to capture it in these two (don't worry I swatched with my bottle, the giveaway bottle is un-opened). It's such a beautiful shade, as I'm sure you'll agree, and it only takes a couple of coats to get it nice and opaque.


'Sprung' is a shade that instantly caught my attention. I Really didn't need another shimmery, glittery,  metallic shade but just Look how pretty! I love the bronze/copper/red/pink mix of shades in this one; it's, absolutely, a perfect Autumn/Winter shade. It reminds me of autumn leaves, but the sparkle also makes it very festive too. 


So so so much pretty! I am, absolutely, in love with this polish! And the fact that it's only £4.95 is astounding to me, especially when it's from a brand like OPI. 


Lastly I want to talk about 'White on White' from China Glaze. I haven't photographed the bottle again because... well it's a plain white polish. I also haven't swatched it on its own for the same reason. 

I asked for this polish because I think that anyone who is in to nail art Needs to have a white polish; it's ideal for nail stamping, polka dots and any number of designs. Also, it crossed my mind that white is pretty festive, especially with the right top coat. I popped a white/silver glitter on top of it ('Polar Bear' by W7) which I think makes it a fantastic, sparkly, festive nail look. For £2.95 this is worth adding on to your order because it's a great quality white - When I think of white I expect to need lots of coats but I only needed 1-2 for this one which was fantastic. 

So, yes, I think you can expect some future NailPolish.co.uk orders from me, there's so many gorgeous shades and for such amazing prices. My order arrived super fast, too, which is great when you're trying to prepare for a big event and don't have lots of time.
