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 :)
Cactus Flower: Fuchsia, nearly red shade with blue reflexes;
Mermaid: Clear varnish with blue glitter;
Carnival: Clear varnish with multi-coloured glitter;
Strawberries & Cream: Creamy champagne colour with blue reflexes;
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!
