It isn’t often that I bother to purchase magazines anymore, now that I am addicted to reading blogs instead! However, every now and then, there will be the odd freebie that will make me swoon.
There are some awesome November magazine freebies at the moment, but one in particular caught my eye.
I am an absolute nail polish FIEND, as my blog name may suggest. I have a stupidly large collection but I’m not great at nail art or anything like that. When I spot a nail polish bargain though, I am all over that!
This month, Glamour magazine are giving away a Kate Spade New York Nails Inc polish with each issue. There are 4 colours to choose from in total. A stunning bright red, a metallic silver, a dark greyish colour and a metallic gold.
When I went to make my purchase, they only had the red and gold left so I was limited in choice!
I settled on the metallic gold named Uptown Glamour, simply because I have more red nail polishes than I will ever possibly need! And I am glad I did. This shade is perfect for the Christmas party season and has a gorgeous metallic sheen. I am not a huge gold fan so this was quite an unexpected addition to my collection.
I think I am in love though. The polish has a lovely finish and is the nicest hint of glamour, without being too in your face. As with a lot of metallic polishes, there was a bit of streaking, but nothing that an extra coat didn’t fix. My worry was that it would be over the top but it really is subtle, even enough to wear everyday! In my opinion anyway :).
To be honest, I know I do not need 4 copies of 1 magazine, but I am so tempted to go and buy the rest! The red polish is the exact shade I can imagine Snow White would wear which just convinces me more that I need to own it.
All 4 shades are stunning and this Kate Spade New York collaboration is a definite winner. If you love a bit of quirk, you may also want to check out her site. Some of her shoes have me weak at the knees!
These polishes are worth £11 each and the magazine is on sale for just £2/€2.92 in Easons. BARGAIN!!
So in fact, you can get all 4 for less than the price of 1 normal Nails Inc polish. How could you not?!
Have you been tempted? Let me know which shade you chose in the comments below!
Until next time!
