Ooh, what's this? (parcel unboxing!)

I had a very exciting delivery today, so I decided to take photos to show the unboxing as it happened.
It is an early Mother's Day pressie for me (this year will be my first one ever!)

Well, we can see where it's from already!

Don't think I've ever seen green bubble wrap before... *pops a few bubbles*

Almost there!

Yay!! NYX Nail Polish!

NYX Pink Glitter NPS216

It seems to be lots of different textured glitters in a clear base. I can see green, yellow, pink,orange, purple, blue. The purple / blue really stands out in the light, its lovely! There is lots of fine glitter, some hexagons and some stars!

NYX Dark Glitter NPS217

It is fine red glitter, red hex glitter in a very sheer black base. It looks like a dupe for Deborah Lippman's Ruby Red Slippers.

NYX Acid Pink NPS185

Neon pink with a shimmer, I see flashes of purple and silver in it. Looks like it might be a one coat wonder.

NYX Beach Glitter NPS218

Fine holographic glitter with larger hexagons in a sheer, almost transparent blue base.

Do you like them? I know I do! I was surprised by how chunky the bottles are and the delivery was superfast. The polishes all cost me £4.50 and delivery was an extra £4.50. I think you can get these a lot cheaper in the US but not here in the UK. I would still order again though as they are worth the money, I just have to build my collection a few at a time rather than one huge spend.  I ordered from nyxcosmeticsstore.co.uk (thanks to @pinkylorren on Twitter for telling me I could order from there!)

Have you tried these polishes or something similar? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Ouuh these are really pretty! Are you going to do a NOTD with them?

    1. I was impressed too, I will definitely use them for NOTD at some point, I have a lot waiting to be done hehe! x

  2. I looove the stars in the pink glitter! xx

  3. They look gorgeous but really similar to Deborah Lipmann! Quarter of the price though which is amazing! Hope you enjoy them.

    1. I know, I didn't even realise how similar they were til I got them, its the bottle shape aswell! It goes to show how other companies are able to sell the same thing at a more affordable price though xx

  4. ahh, love the pink glitter one with the stars! I love NYX polishes, they sell them in my river island accessories store so I get mine from there! hope to see some NOTD photos with these soon! xoxo

    1. This was my first time using them and I have to say I have fell in love with them. I went to my local R.I the other day to see if they had any but they don't stock any cosmetics at all! xx
