China Glaze and Essie Nail Polish

The last two weeks, I been stalking a store called Cosmetic Fragrance Direct for China Glaze and Essie Nail Polish. They are located in Southern Cross and South Wharf DFO Melbourne. I'm not one that normally buys a lot of nail polish because I'm lazy and can never be bothered waiting for my nails to dry. But when I saw these babies for $7 (China Glaze) and $6 (Essie) each, I could not resist and bought colours I would potentially use lol. I've seen Essie at Myer for $18.95 and being the stingy asian I am, I will never purchase at that price considering that there is a very high chance I will not even use it.


This isn't a swatch or review post because my nails are not very pretty and it feels weird posting pics of them lol Maybe one day, I'll apply it on some fake nails to show you guys the colours.

I did manage to try Secret Peri Wink & Peach Daiquiri and both consistency were really good. Secret Peri Wink started chipping after 3 days (with base & top coat). I have Peach Daiquiri on since Friday night and it's still going strong. Very happy with my purchases!

They also had Essie gift packs which contains 4 miniature polishes for $5. I bought two of the gift packs for my blogiversary giveaway in 2 months time! Man time has sure flew by, can't believe my blog is almost one!


Hope you guys had a lovely weekend! 
As always thanks for reading!!!

  1. Great buys! I remember seeing that minty looking China Glaze polish at my local beauty supply, I swatched it and fell in love. Why I didn't buy it? I have no idea. You'll love it tho. It's a really pretty color and hopefully I can go back and pick up that color too. :D

  9. Beautiful colors! I find you have to be careful with Essie polishes... some of their consistencies are too thin for my liking but some are perfect with 2 coats!

  18. The prices on Beauty products in Australia always make my jaw drop! The price of Essie and China Glaze is USD $8. I can't believe they'd be $18 in Australia but that's just the case! Come to the US and stock up! Visiting from the blog hop, would you like to follow each other?
