Secret Savings- Discount OPI, China Glaze, Ciate and Polishes from 50p

Hi All.

Is it just me or does your nail polish collection seem to be expanding daily too? Do you see a colour you don't have on swatches online and just have to have it? It can definately be an expensive habit.  I just wanted to let you all in on where I get my my premium and drugstore polishes to fit my not so premium budget without getting a professional Nail Artist discount and show you some of the polishes I have got. 


Nail Polish Direct website:



Top L-R: China Glaze For Audrey , Sun of a peach and Poshe super-fast drying topcoat
Bottom L-R: I just cant cope-acabana, Red hot Rio, Push and Shove and China Glaze First and Last combination base and top-coat

This site is where I will now get most of my China Glaze and OPI Nail Polish. Most of the OPI polishes are £6.75 (some limited edition/new polishes are a bit more) whereas they retail for around £11+ And the China Glaze polishes are mostly £4.95 and they Normally Retail for around £6.99. 

It is free shipping in 3-5 Working days over £10, which I took advantage of. I got my parcel in 4 working days from ordering, packaged with loads of those packing peanuts and no marks on the boxed polishes.

It is also worth noting that they carry the new collections that come/are coming out like the OPI Brazil Range (£7.95 each) and the New China Glaze (£4.95).

All in all I am really Impressed with this site and will definately be purchasing again from them (when I get some money)

Fragrance Direct Website:

Top L-R OPI(x3) Kias me on my Tulips, Guy meets Gal-Veston, You're such a buda-pest Constance Carroll Neon Yellow, NYC Midtown Mink, Maybelline Colour Show Green Zing
Bottom L-R NYC Pinstripe white, Astor(x3) Cabaret, not on the bottle and my pink lady, NYC(x2) lights, camera-glitter and Water Street Blue.


This website is where I buy my really discounted polishes (pictured above). They tend to Carry more 'drugstore' brands of polish like NYC, Astor etc. But at really, really affordable prices. Infact, the polishes start from 50p (like the yellow one above). Some of the brands I haven't heard of but if, like me, you are looking to build up your colour collection, then this is the place for you.

The colour selection on each type of polish is sometimes limited and can sometimes be the colours that would be left in the bargain bin. That said, there are some absolute bargains to be had, there are hundreds of types and the quality is good.

My top pick on this site is the OPI. Most of them are the older 'limited edition' left overs like the holland collection from 2012 but they are unopened polishes, good quality in really pretty colours and the best thing is the price: £3.99. Seriously.. such a steal.

My Second Tip is the Ciate. They are now carrying the Ciate denim manicure for £3.99 which retails for £12 and the Mini Paint Palette Set which contains 8 mini paint pots for £10.99 and the RRP is £25.00. Oh goodness now I want to buy more.

This Site does more than just nail polish, there is also some heavily discounted makeup etc. And although You have to pick through for colours etc, there are some great bargains to be had. Shipping is £1.99 for standard 5-7 working days or £2.99 for express which is 2-4 working days. 

So there you have it. Hope you have found it useful. Links above for each site.

Thanks For reading. 
Love Lozzy xoxo
