A Superdrug Nail Polish Haul

In my opinion there is nothing better than doing a declutter but the one thing I'm awful at is decluttering nail varnish. I think I've got a sentimental issue with throwing out gloopy and old nail varnishes which is ridiculous because there is nothing worse than trying to resurrect a gone varnish. However the other weekend I completely chucked away a load of old ones, and did a little Superdrug order to repurchase some old favourites, as well as a couple of newbies. 

Firstly are two nail polishes from the Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Color range. This has to be probably be my favourite nail polish formula and application from the drugstore. I love the application brush because it's wide and provides an easy coat and I can wear the colours for around 5/6 days without any chipping. I picked up Midnight Red which is this gorgeous deep burgundy red polish perfect for this time of the year. This is incredibly vampy and love how Autumnal is looks. I'm also a massive sucker for a classic red either for my toes or my hands so I repurchased Deep Red as mine had gone a little 'meh'. This is a proper 'red' with no orange undertone and is just a proper 'red carpet' red. 

Next on the list are two Essie colours. I can't believe I've gone without Angora Cardi in my life for such a long time. This is one of those cult Essie shades, which you can't really describe what it is. It's sort of a dusty mauve deep purple but even that doesn't do it justice. What I think is hilarious is that not all Essie colours have the same formula, and some shades last a lot longer than others. Thankfully Angora Cardi does last on my nails and I've been wearing it constantly this Autumn. Lastly is 'Carry On'. This shade may look similar to the Maybelline one in the bottle but Carry On is quite a deep purple shade instead, and a bit warmer than Midnight red. 

Let me know in the comments below what Autumnal polishes you've recently picked up! 


  1. Aaah, you can't beat an Essie Polish's, they really are some of the best out there. I have my eye on this deep red over at Barry M, I just need to head to a Boots or Superdrug xx

  2. Absolutely loving the colour of Midnight Red from Maybelline! Never tried Essie nail polish before but heard such great things so I feel I must jump on the bandwagon! Think a nail varnish haul is needed.
