Essie Nail Polish cheap haul...

A few days ago I bought Four Essie Nail Polishes from a website called Buyapowa, I had never heard of it before, but someone tweeted about it, I had a look and signed up.

Buyapowa explain themselves as so:

"But what if the more friends you took along, the better the products on offer?

That’s the principle of the Co-Buy: co-operative buying power. Ancient civilisations had the same idea. What’s new is how perfectly it dovetails into this generation’s defining behaviour patterns.

Ideas and crazes spread faster than ever before. Everything is shared. Why not buzz about your products and services?" And you can read more about Buyapowa from their website which you can find HERE.

Anyway, I have got home tonight and these are my Essie Nail Polishes - what do you think?

So in this lovely bright packaging you can clearly see the Essie Nail polishes, their retail price is £10.00 on Lookfantastic see HERE and the marketing blurb is as follows:

Can’t decide which colour you want? Well you don’t have to! Essie Mini Summer 2012 Collection contains a quartet of your summer favourites to get you set for some summer fun.
Get set to wow with Essie Mini Summer 2012 Collection- these perfect handbag sized shades will take you from beach babe to glamour puss in no time! Essie’s chip resistant formula and outstanding durability is not only easy to apply and fast drying, but will give your nails superb coverage and a professional finish. DBP, toluene and formaldehyde free.
This pack contains the following products:

  • Essie Bikini So Teeny- 5ml - A sparkling, cornflower blue shade.
  • Essie Off The Shoulder- 5ml - The boldest, hottest pink shade there is.
  • Essie Fear Or Desire- 5ml - A bright, orange crush.
  • Essie Mojito Maddness -5ml - A fun-loving lime green

I only paid £6.95 (plus £1.95 P&P) for these nail polishes and I do love their colours, they are so refreshing and so bright, I can't wait to try them out.

Did anyone else purchase these? 
Already have them? Like them?

  5. Really cute nail polish colors.


  6. I love Mojito Madness & Fear or Desire!

    I go through phases of using nail polish. If I'm good and don't bite or pick my nails I get a bit obsessed with them being perfectly painted. At the minute they are short so I have to wait until they have grown a bit before I start painting again.

    I've never actually tried Essie before.

  7. So cheap for Essie Nail Colors! I wonder if this website sells to the US...

  18. Hi there! I'm writing from Ontario, Canada. We have Essie nail colours here, and I've tried 3 different colours. All have covered well, dried quickly, and have long life on the nails. I'd certainly recommend that others give them a try.

  19. Thank you so much! That did the trick, you saved me more endless hours of searching for a fix.
