Today I want to show you a few nail polishes I picked up in Italy. I had actually planned to get a bigger variety of cosmetic products, not only nail polishes, and also visit a Sephora, but somehow this plan didn't work out. I was so busy being at the beach and visiting the beautiful country that I didn't really get the chance to go into "real" cosmetic stores...maybe next time! But at that moment making the most of my vacation was a little more important to me than shopping :D
I picked up most of these polishes at little supermarket/dollar stores around the area I spent my vacation, and to be honest, I don't really know anything about these brands...maybe someone can tell whether I bought only crap or something good?! :D
First of all, these was this brand called Stillday. I bought 2 of their polishes, and each one was 1 Euro. It actually says on the bottle that it's made in Italy, so it's definitely from there. It contains 15 ml.
Stillday's 38 is a dark blackened blue that applies a little like a jelly but it perfectly opaque at 2 coats. It's so pretty, and I didn't expect it to be this opaque!
Yesensy's 028 is a dark red with a strong golden duochrome. It's super pretty, looks different at each angle, and I like it a lot. I did 3 thin coats on the nail wheel.
Kiko's 240 is a deep almost bloody red creme, and it applies almost like a jelly, super pleasant consistency. Twocoater.
When I was in San Marino, btw, I was looking out for inexpensive stuff, since you can get a lot of things duty-free there. In one store they actually seemed to sell Chanel and Dior polishes for 10 Euros, and I got totally excited. But then I had a look at the bottles: each said "tester, not for sale". I was so disappointed! I mean, I'm not gonna buy a tester, especially not when I can't even see whether it's still nice. Who would want to buy a tester?! Don't get it...
See you soon,
