With the ongoing inflation, the value of SGD 5 bucks has dropped. It used to be able to feed two people at lunch. Now, it can barely feed one.

Alright, I digressed. I wanted to share with you my recent cheap and fabulous buys from Tony Moly. To sum up, I got myself some trendy khaki shades at less than $5 a pop and these polishes were surprisingly pretty good in quality.

This colour is TR05 – Sad Green. A very unique blend of turquoise and green.

My workplace is organising a “Back to School” year-end party and I highly suspect I can no longer fit into my old school uniform. I am wondering if this outfit would be good for the theme.

It’s time to wake up, because September has ended. It had been a pretty great month for me although I can’t believe how three-quarter of the year had came and gone.

The prints on my top resemble polka dots but they are actually exclamation marks!

Top: French Connection| Jeans: Dorothy Perkins| Shoes: GoJane

So there you go, here’s how the Mulberry for Target small denim satchel matches up with my size.

PS: I love my orange nail polish. It’s OPI Osaka To Me Orange!

Yes, Miss Glitzy and Gwyneth Paltrow share something in common. And no, it’s not the fact that both their names begin with the letter “G”.

Miss Glitzy has no bling or fur but the same chocolate gray nail polish!

It’s the OPI You Don’t Know Jacques from Fall 2008. Miss Glitzy is so smitten with this colour! It’s a weird taupe shade but very neutral, making it a perfect complement with colourful outfits or a great highlight to monochromes. As Autumn/Winter is approaching again, this colour is gonna take the cake!

You Don’t Know Jacques is one of the OPI Matte series and so you could go matte for a different texture by just opting out the top coat.

One fine day, Miss Fluffy decided that she needed to get some OPI nail polishes and asked Miss Glitzy where is the best place to get started.

Ladies who’re into manicures would know that OPI makes the best nail polishes in the world and a bottle of this Holy Grail can cost more than $20 in Singapore. Even drugstore.com sells it at US$8.50 per bottle of which is pricey by Miss Glitzy’s standards.

Below are some websites where you can get cheap OPI nail polishes. Each bottle is less than US$5!
1) Transdesign – Wide variety of colours. Preferred if you have huge orders of more than 30 bottles. Shipping for 42 bottles cost US$57.
2) 8ty8beauty – Good for smaller quantities. Apparently, their response time is longer. Shipping for 6 bottles about US$13.
3) Head2toe – Never tried them before. Less variety than Transdesign but oh… they sell Ardell lashes too!

Please do not use freight forwarders like Vpost to ship your OPI orders as nail polish is one of the “Dangerous Goods” highlighted by US Customs and freight forwarders do not want to take the responsibilities of accepting “Dangerous” items. Opt for direct shipping and after factoring the shipping cost, each bottle of OPI usually costs less than S$10! Do bear in mind that if total cost including shipping exceeds S$400, 7% GST will be incurred.

Miss Fluffy told yours truly that the colour palettes on the above sites were not representative. So Miss Glitzy heeded her advice and went to www.opi.com to get a better comparison. There is even a mock up of how the nail colours would look on your fingers depending on your skin tone!

Nonetheless, Opi.com provides a good guide to make your initial selections. For an even more realistic representation, proceed to the following sites for real life swatches:
– Lextard’s Flickr
– Tangerinetotty’s Flickr
– The Polish Addict

Now Miss Glitzy didn’t know why she ever spent so much time picking colours! It got really giddy when this shade of pink and that shade of pink started looking the same, yet were different. All that time for just 3 bottles of nail polishes. But the satisfaction of cheap and good lacquers – priceless!
