TK Maxx Haul & NOTD :)

Hello My Lovelies!

Don't forget about my 100 Follower Giveaway - you have ONE DAY left to enter! :)

I apologize for the lack of posts recently, I have been really poorly for the last week or so :(
Just haven't been up to posting anything!! I'm still not feeling great but I'm really missing my blog so I've made the effort to get some posts written and scheduled for the next few days! :)

I ventured on Monday to TK Maxx in an effort to cheer myself up, and it certainly worked! I found some FAB products in the beauty section that I just had to have!

Check out these little beauties!:

First up, I have been trying to stop biting my nails and when I spotted the Time Release Growth Formula Continuous Treatment from Sally Hansen for a bargain £2.99 I thought it looked great! 
It promises to help restore my nails to their full strength, and says that just one application lasts for 10 days and can be used under nail polish - perfect! I've already started using it, so we'll see how it goes! :)

I've been reading some great reviews of the Insta-Dry range from Sally Hansen over at the lovely Charlie D's beauty blog and so when I spotted this set of 3 for just £4.99 I could not resist! :)

The set includes: Presto Pink, Rapid Red & Blue Streak

 And my final purchase was, I must admit, a bit cheeky on my part - I noticed a set of 3 Essie nail polishes which were on clearance for £7.00 - the set included a lovely deep red shade which doesn't actually have a name?!, a lovely deep pink named Clambake, and it also included a very dodgy looking blue shade which was all split and oily - I wanted the pink & red but I didn't fancy taking my chances on the dodgy blue shade!
The box was very bashed and was half open, and among the pile of clearance products was a set of Nails Inc polishes which was also all bashed I admit, I spied a similar blue shade called Eden Grove in the Nails Inc set which wasn't damaged and I swapped it for the damaged Essie one! :/
 *Blush* I know, I know...a bit naughty of me! *Slaps Wrists* 

I used the Nails Inc "Eden Grove" polish today, and it's the first Nails Inc I've ever used (I'm a bit of a Nail virgin and have only recently got into nail polishes!) - I must say, I expected a bit more from it given how pricey they usually are - the colour is very nice, it was very opaque and had a lovely sheen to it, but I did find the brush a bit fiddly to use and it took a LONG time to dry!

Do you use TK Maxx for bargain beauty products? What are your thoughts on Nails Inc products?
