Save, Spend, Splurge: Pink Glitter Polish

Hello lovelies,

Another post in my 'Save, Spend, Splurge' series and this time one of my favourite things(!) Pink glittery nail polishes!
Save
The 5ml mini bottles of Orly Nail Lacquers retail for £5 in Boots, the same as my 'Spend' category polish however i managed to pick this up from a US seller on Ebay for £3.16 with shipping included which i think is quite a good deal. However, its looks are deceiving as it looks mega glitter packed in the bottle but once applied it is a clear base coat with a hint of pink glitter and needs a lot of layering for it to be opaque! However if you are looking for a cheap pink glittery polish this is a good option!
Spend
♥ Look Beauty 'Bling' Nail Pop ♥
I was recently sent this Look Beauty nail polish and I have gotten a lot of wear out of it already. The bottles are a huge 15ml and they retail for £5 which i think is amazing value! This is opaque within one coat and is packed with glitter! I wore this over the weekend on my nailene falsies and it stayed put! I would highly recommend this! 
Splurge
♥ OPI 'Teenage Dream' ♥
Teenage dream is one of my favourite polishes ever! It is unlike the other too as it is a paler pink and has more dimension to it than just standard one colour glitter. It is limited edition and really hard to find so i do try and limit my use of it! I do absolutely love it so if you get the chance to own it then i say go for it! OPI polishes retail in the UK for £10.50.

In the bottle, the mini Orly & the Look Beauty polish look pretty much identical! But when swatched it is a different story all together! The Look Beauty is only one coat whereas the Orly polish is around 3 coats built up and is ever so sheer with just one coat. 

Do you like sporting a bit of pink glitter on your nails?

  7. I love the Look one! I thought the Orly one would come out a little more glitter packed but still would be nice for wearing over other nail polishes.

  16. All 3 shades look fab, but I have to say the Look Beauty looks the best, I had one of their glitter polishes in shade Dorothy and always got lots of compliments wearing it :) The downside to glitter is getting it off though!!
