Haul from the US

There are a lot of polish brands we don't get here in Denmark. It might seem weird, but I drool over Covergirl and Revlon when I visit a drugstore in the US! One of the nail polish brands that's not available here is Sinful. I've been lemming Sinful polishes forever. Before christmas I was able to get a kind lady in the US to make a custom purchase and send some Sinful polishes my way, and here they are:

#218 Thimbleberry, #260 Volcanic, #380 Under The Star, #23 Mystery, #50 Buster's Brown, #251 Jasmine Jazz, #61 Purple Blue Glitter, #19 Strip Poker, #39 Fabulous Red.

I also got some Maybelline Colorama top coats and some of the new Color Club minis:


And some OPIs and China Glaze:

Wow, you're a lucky girl!
How much did customs charge, if at all?
;)

Cherryculture.com ships our way, and they have Sinful colors, didn't you know?

Very nice haul.

I'm from the US where did you get the color club polishes?

Sasha said...

Which OPI DS colors are those? I am wearing Reflection right now- is that one of the ones you have? I LOVE it and I also love Extravagance if you have the chance to get that one too.

Honey: I am lucky :) I didn't get charged by customs since this was a gift.

Kajsa: I believe that the Sinful colors are actually from Cherry Culture. However, if I buy from there, the customs charges will be very expensive (more expensive than the polishes).

rmcandlelight: Thank you! The color club polisher are from www.head2toebeauty.com

Sasha: The DS are Jewel and Ruby. Extravagance is so beautiful. I'd love to get it.

pixie.. er du dansk? bestile selv fra head2toebeauty og skulle betale 2/3 for told og fragt. synes dog det var lidt vildt at de tog told og moms af både fragt og neglelakkene. Jeg så at der var en engelsk side der solgte neglelak men der koster de så ca 5 pund og det vil stadig være billigere gennem head2toe, da jeg efter at ha betalt alle udgifter efter modtagelsen stadig holdte neglelakken på 39 kroner pr flaske.

:D

Pixie said...

Brooke: Thanks babe *huggles*

Sussi: Jeps, det er jeg :) Jeg undgår så vidt muligt at købe fra udenfor EU. Det er simpelthen ikke værd at betale det latterlige gebyr til Post Danmark :( Og der med at de regner portoen med er helt til grin...

I own a few Sinful nail polishes and I must say, I love them! The polishes are only $2 at Walgreens pharmacy and are available in a kaleidoscope of colors! Best of all, they're 'Big 3-Free'.

Kajsa said...

I've ordered from Cherryculture alot of times and still haven't get caught in customs.. Maybe they have "better" people working in Denmark than they are in Sweden :D

sussi said...

Næste gang jeg skal til New york skal jeg da lige ha en masse med hjem :D

Pixie said...

Mandy: I'm so jealous. I can't believe you guys get such amazing polish for $2. That's almost free!

Kasja: Unfortunately the Danish customs people are extremely vigilant. They'll even look up prices on the internet, if they aren't convinced by the customs declaration :/

Sussi: Helt sikkert! Sidste gang jeg var i USA havde jeg sådan ca. 4 tons makeup og neglelak med hjem :D
