My £1 Bargain: Revlon 'Powder Puff'


On Saturday I went for a walk around Pound World or was it Pound Land? (The one with the blue sign) In the hope of finding some Stila bargains but it wasnt to be. Instead I found a Revlon Nail Polish in the shade Powder Puff and straight away I knew I'd love it. I'm sure you all know by now how much I love my white and almost white nail polish shades, they make my hands look clean, my nails healthy and they go with any outfit.

Powder Puff is a Matte Suede finish which is something I'm not a fan of. I just feel like my hands look really grubby with matte nails so I always opt for a glossy topcoat. The colour is quite sheer, it takes three coats to be opaque but I absolutely love how it looks. Its a non stark white with subtle iredescent blue running through but the blue is so subtle its barely noticeable. It looks really similar to Nails Inc Whitechapel (Whitechapel has pink iredescence).

Products Used:
Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Base Coat
Revlon Powder Puff (3 coats)
Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat

Sorry about two nail posts in a row but I had to share my bargain.

Not bad for a quid eh!

    1. There was only 2 different Revlon colours on Saturday, I got the last Powder Puff but they usually stock a few half decent brands. There was Maybelline mascara too but only in brown.

    1. Its really weird, most of the make up items seem to be what we cant usually get in the UK like Sinful Colors Nail Polish yet they somehow end up in pound shops.
