    I didn't think they had a Sally's in the UK
    Evidently, they do I get most of my beauty bits from Sally's.

    Ooh, thanks. They're not that bad of a price actually!
    I know a Sally's store that's been here for years.

    I'll have a look and see if there's one near me. I see a bunch of people talking about things they've bought from there and I never thought there was one here.

    I LOVE my Inglot nail varnish - spent years looking for the /exact/ shade of red and then my mum bought it for me (by accident, I wanted a diff shade :O ) from there and it's all long lasting and whatnot (well, two/three days without a top coat) and goes on really easily. You need two coats, but after the second one, it's an epic colour. About £8 for 15ml. Sadly, the only place I know that does it is in Westfield in London. Sooo many colours, though, and they let you test them in the shop ^_^

    I love OPI, especially the Designer Series :coma: Zoya, China Glaze and Nubar are pretty good too.

    CG is £6 in Sally's without a card, you can get OPI in John Lewis and Fenwicks I do buy from eBay sometimes though!

    beautyzone2007 on ebay are an amazing seller. I buy my OPI/China Gaze/Orly/Zoya/Nubar there and they're brilliant. CG is my favourite I think but OPI is really good quality.

    QVC sometimes do cheap OPI, but usually in large sets so you have to want all of the colours

    They're worth paying the price, for sure.
    :yep:, they are pricey, but worth it.

    OP, ever heard of Ebay??? . . That's where I got mine from - they came from a seller in LA, and took 2-3days to arrive.

    Barry M definitely, 2 for a fiver at boots atm as well! I've never tried OPI but i wouldn't pay 10 pound for a nail varnish, simply because I buy colours per season if you get me, so i never use a full bottle

    Just wondering, how does Essie nail varnish compare with OPI?

    They have some really cute pastel colours that I want for spring/summer, but I don't know whether to go for it or find an OPI shade that's similar.

    I find Essie pastels really good. Mint candy apple is one of my favourites.

    That's actually one I have my eye on! It's lovely. I'm going to break out my Konad stamps at some point, I can see it looking quite nice with something silver over the top

    Seriously go here - OPI is like £2-3!!! Sod paying £10.99 lol. I usually go into Sally's, look @ the shades I want, jot them down, go home and order from that website. They literally take a few days to arrive! Ordered China Glaze, currently waiting for it to arrive, before I order an OPI shade I loved when looking @ it in Sally's. lol
