Beauty Bargain: Technic Nail Varnishes

Beauty Bargain: Technic Nail Varnishes

Remember when the Deborah Lippman ‘Happy Birthday’ multi-glitter nail varnish came out last year? Everyone and their mother in the beauty blogosphere was after a dupe of ‘Happy Birthday’ because it was so freaking expensive and it wasn’t too easy to get a hold of in the UK.

That was when I first heard of the nail polish brand ‘Technic’, and they seemed to have the perfect dupe for ‘Happy Birthday’ with their ‘Carnival’ nail varnish, but it wasn’t widely available in-stores. Fast-forward it to last weekend, and I found a Technic stand in Bodycare with polishes starting from 99p! Needless to say I snatched pretty much every single shade that tickled my fancy. Let’s get the haulage started :)

Siona Island: Metallic teal shade.

I love all of these colours! Formulation-wise, my first impressions are not too bad; definitely worth more than the £1 price tag :)

 I hope you enjoyed my little haul and let me know if you know other amazing Technic polishes that I need to have in my life!

    I find that they chip really easy but with a decent topcoat they can look good x

    OOH Mermaid looks pretty. I think Milani has a dupe for Happy Birthday as well if I’m not mistaken.

    I have the Blue Glitter – Mermaid one & its a great glitter top coat. These polishes are so cheap & they do a fab colour range. I am loving the look of Siona Island.

    Só tenho o Carnival e adoro usar por cima de outras cores. só acho o cheiro um pouco forte, mas dura muito e adoro o efeito. Comprei pelo ebay por mais ou menos £3 pq estava louca por algum esmalte com estes brilhinhos. Adorei sua compra. Bjo ótimo feriado.
