Penny Pinching Polish

technic carnivalWhen I saw this nail polish on blogs and vlogs I got a serious case of the want-want-neeeeeeds. It is actually a dupe for much more expensive nail polish from the OPI Muppets collection which made me make a noise a bit like this ‘hummnahummnahiiiiingh’ but alas was out of my price range even if it did have me panting out cool noises.

The polish is Technic Carnival and I picked it up after seeing Essie Button link to the place she’d bought it from after one of her videos. Ahhh maaaan I love it, it is jam packed full of huge chunks of glitter, it lasts well and a little goes a long way. I believe you can pick this up in some Bodycare shops but I’ve searched high and low and not been able to find any so I got mine from this eBay seller for £1.20. Bargain.

  6. I do love this topcoat, amazing quality for it’s price! I’ve got a gold leaf topcoat on my nails today- road testing it for the blog! Have a great weekend x

  7. I’m wearing this polish right now, paid about £2 on ebay for it though so saving that seller you got yours from!

  8. I love a good glitter polish and for that price this seems like an absolute winner! I’ve got mainly Barry M glitters because the price of OPI makes me weep, but I love that this one has more chunky glitter!

  9. I bought this a few months ago in The Original Factory Shop for £1. There are some good make up and beauty bargains there but it is a bit like the pound shops – their stock changes all the time. Worth a look if you have one nearby :-)

  12. I have this nail polish! I love it! I put a few layers on that way the whole nail is glittery :). I got mine from body care they sell out of it fast though.

  13. hey have Saturday Savings finished?

  14. I am away this weekend so unable to post up to date codes. It should be back as usual next week.

  15. I love this but glitter polishes always annoy me when they’re on my nails. I’m wearing topshop valley today. X

  16. I got this for my birthday!! I have it over the top of a deep purple on my fingers and toes right this minute!!

  17. If there’s a poundland near you they do a fairly good dupe for £1 too.

  18. This looks amazing! What a great buy, especially compared with a lot of other glitter polishes! At the moment I love the ‘angelica’ glitter from primark, after 2 coats it turns an opaque glitter shade and lasted a week on me without any peeling!

  19. It seems long overdue that I have only now discovered this blog! It is amazing, and I love your videos. x

  20. Ohh Im wearing this too , its amazing over white nail narnish :) I picked mine up from Bodycare :) x

  21. Love it! I have 2 different pinks with a glitter Essence polish over the top on now! Its called Circus Confetti and looks exactly the same as the one you have on! I did a NOTD blogpost this morning if you want to see! http://hannahcoral.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/notd_28.html

  22. I bought this a while ago from bodycare for just 99p, its my fave glitter & such a good dupe for OPI rainbow carnival!

  23. I bought this recently but haven’t used it yet. I got mine for £2 from the original factory shop.

  24. Oooo pretty! That would look nice over some black/navy blue or red at christmas!!

  25. The price different between this Technic polish and the Opi ones is actually ridiculous! This looks to be just as good!! xo

  26. I have the Essence Circus Confetti one and it’s exactly the same as OPI Rainbow Connection, which I had and I hated. Overpriced and Overrated! I’ve never heard of Technic, I like the look of it.

  27. Ooooh how I love glitter nail polish! However it#s always such a pain in the ass to remove it later on, boo… ;)
    Unfortunately I’m not wearing anything on my nails today, but in general I’ve been in love with my bronze/golden Astor polish recently :)

    Happy Sunday!

  28. i love this,love this!
