Penneys / Primark Nails

Anybody that follows me on Twitter or Instragram may have noticed I have gone slighlty obsessed with Penneys/ Primark nails. At only £1 / €1.50 per set it is a very affordable way to change your nails.

Each set comes with a wide range of sizes and with lots of spare nails. A small glue also comes with each set of nails. I usually use Essence glue or Claire's. However, my Claire's glue refused to open for me the other night so I was forced to use the glue that came with the nails. It was not quite as good as The Essence/Claire's but a lot better than I expected. My nails lasted the whole night but came loose the next day. However, for £1 you not bad!

Is anybody else loving these nails?

Where to find Primark Clothes?

I recently received an email from a girl in France asking me did I know anywhere in France that sold Primark  clothes. Since Primark is mostly just in Ireland and the U.K i decided to go on a 'Find Primark Hunt' for any international readers.

Primark clothes can be purchased from many sellers on Ebay. Asos have also started to sell Primark clothes. Click HERE for more details. For European readers outside of Ireland and The U.K. I have listed the countries that sell Primark and also where each shop is. Hope this helps!





The Netherlands

Happy shopping!

Penneys / Primark Autumn Winter Collection

Despite it being the 1st of July, today I'm going to have a quick  look at Penneys(Primarks) Autumn/ Winter campaign. To be honest I'm not completely blown away by what I have saw so far. The clothes are not really my cup of tea but I can see many people being impressed by them. I do however like the look of some of the accessories.

Not sure I would buy anything? Maybe the short cardigan for work? 

I'm a lot more impressed with the jewellery. I really like the two necklaces, especially the one on the left. 

I'm really impressed with the bags in the Autumn / Winter collection. I will definitely buy one of the €11 bags. I do like the brown bag , but is €22 too much for a Penneys bag? I don't think I could justify spending that much on a bag from Penneys...

So what do you think? Are you impressed with this collection?

Superdrug Orange and Satsuma and Strawberry and Raspberry Shower Gels

Another two products that I have been loving lately are two gorgeous shower gels from Superdrug. There are very few Superdrugs in Ireland. However, I'm lucky enough to live very close to one. I have been trying to save money lately and these shower gels caught my eye as they were 2 for €1.90. For less than €2 for the pair I decided sure there was no harm giving them a try. 

For the price I was delighted with both products. Both are made from natural fruit extracts, have skin conditioners, PH balanced and  are soap free. Many readers will be delighted to hear that they are cruelty free as Superdrug is against animal testing. 

Both shower gels smells delicious. The Orange and Satsuma in particular. It reminds me of a shower gel I used to get in sets at Christmas time from The Body Shop. If you live near a Superdrug I would definitely recommend you keep an eye out for these cheap but surprisingly delightful products!

Penneys / Primark Fake Nails

Lately I have been really impressed with Penneys / Primarks false nails. For the brilliant bargain price of €1.50 Penneys have really lovely designs. My favourite so far is the blue with white clouds in the picture above. My nails got a lot of compliments when I wore them. I didn't trust the glue (sorry Penneys) so bought Royal nail glue for €2.99 in the cosmetics shop in The Ilac Centre. This glue is amazing and the nails don't budge. 

As I have not tested the Primark glue I can't comment on if it is good or not but the nails themselves are great for the price. Each box contains 24 nails so there is a size that will fit everyone. I was so impressed with the nails I picked up two more boxes today. I was only in a small Penneys so they did not have a big selection but I was still able to find some nice designs.

I only realised when I opened the packet for the photo there is a cute cupcake design inside that you can't see when you buy them. When I got to the till I found out they had gone down to 50 cent, so if you like the look of these nails get to Penneys fast.

I love the cupcake!

I also picked up a very light pink with a cute bow on the top. 

Have you tried Penneys fake nails?
