Nail Polish Haul for 2014 :)





Hello Everyone!! I missed you all so much!  I am back to start 2014 with a Nail Polish Haul which took me a week to complete :) I ran around the whole of Valletta to try to get hold of some glitters but I wasn't very successful and I even went through my hometown.. seems like glitters are not exactly hot right now!

Before I move on to showing you what I got, I want to thank everyone for your support and wish you all the best for this coming year.  For me it is going to mean a lot of changes as I am getting married and moving away from Mum's house into my new Penthouse which still misses a few important elements to be complete. I may not be able to be here as often as I like but after the wedding I am sure to find more time for you my lovely friends :) In the mean time let's all work hard to make 2014 better than 2013 for us and for those around us :)

How about we post our New Year Resolutions and see how far we manage to keep them?





Okey so on to my haul!  In total I managed to purchase 5 new polishes ( 1 is a top coat though) in the shades ranging from silver to pink. Here is a pic :


The first three from the left are from Deborah while the last two are from Misslyn. I found an official Deborah shop in Valletta and I must say that I like their cosmetics range, although I wasn't very fond of their nail polish range.  The only glitter polish they had is the one I got up there and the colours were all kind of normal ranging from pinks to reds and some inbetweens. To make up for that, they had a mini range of 5 or 6 (I can't remember the exact number) of Metal Finish polishes and I got myself the silver one.  I already tried out the silver and the glitters for Christmas and I paired them with a blood red polish from my collection but I forgot to take a picture! I was pleasantly surprised by both colours :) I will be doing a manicure using them to show you how they look.  The last two polishes by Misslyn were bought from a drugstore in my hometown and the glitzy one was all I could find with some glitter in it. The pink one I got it because I ran out of my Revlon fuschia :P  I used the glitzy one for New Year and I will soon post a review on it so stay tuned for that.  All the polishes are in the range of €4.50c  - €5.50c each, even the Deborah ones (famous brand as opposed to Misslyn) which is quite average.  Quality should prove to be better that the ones you get for a €1 at the mall.  We shall see :)

Here are some more photos of the polishes.  Forgive the lighting but today is rather cloudy and pictures are coming a bit off!
