January and February 2017 empties

It’s time for another empties post! I didn’t use many products up during January so decided to make it a combined affair with February. Then everything seemed to run out all at once! I’ve been really trying to finish one product before opening another but we all know how hard that is. I have finished skin, hair, body, makeup, and nail items, so at least one from each of the main categories that I blog about. Some are even full size! Now, without further ado, let’s get stuck in. I’ll be linking in the titles to where I have reviewed the products previously.

Topshop nail polish & Glisten and Glow top coat

Recently Topshop opened in Auckland, and people were overjoyed – there were queues down the street on the first day. It didn’t really excite me as they don’t sell plus size clothes, but I finally went to Topshop when shopping with friends a little while ago. I had heard a lot about Topshop Beauty, so I made a beeline for that area. The range wasn’t enormous, but I was particularly taken with the nail polishes. This pink glittery polish attracted my inner magpie so much that I broke my self-imposed shopping ban and bought it! The shade is called Figment, and it was around $12 for an 8ml bottle. Another recent purchase, also nail related is the HK girl top coat. Friends of mine in the NZ Polish Addicts group had long been raving about how amazing it is, and I was tired of trying to finish a substandard top coat, so took the plunge. This was another example of me breaking my shopping ban, but honestly, ain’t nobody got time for a gloopy top coat.
