Polish Purchasing

I’ve noticed that I get a few hits from places outside the UK, and I know that when I am looking for polish in different countries, it can be hard to find them if you don’t have a brand name.

So to help, here are some UK based polishes and if they ship outside the UK

UK Based Brands

Barry M – ships around the world

Models Own – ships around the world (best to check this due to new UK postal rules) and the LOVELY Pro range!! Available via Harlow &Co for international polish lovers. They have a bottle shaped shop in Westfield London see BeautyGeekUK for more.

Andrea Fullerton @ Superdrug – UK only

Invogue @ Superdrug – UK onlu

Other brands @ Superdrug include Accessorise, FashionistA and GOSH (and here as well with other world based sites)

A England – ships worldwide

Boots – have a wide range of cosmetics, doesn’t ship outside UK, but some brands are 17, No7, Revlon UK and FearneHere is all the Nail Polish currently available through them.

Cetuem Nail Enamel – I think these are a bit pricey.. but some lovely colours! Not sure where they ship to as the site doesn’t specify!
– I have heard bad things form several bloggers about this brand.  Do some homework before buying.

Nails Inc – doesn’t ship outside UK but available through other stockists and has instore concessions in Debenhams and stand alone stores in London

Leighton Denny – ships worldwide, love the new collection!

Ciate – Lovely new polish here too! Ship worldwide

KIKO – Lovely Italian cosmetics now branching out into the UK.

Topshop – has some fab nail polish (retails about £6) and some good cosmetics. There are some US stores.  they do ship worldwide, not sure if this applies to polish however….

Technic – a really great budget brand that you can order online from here or on Amazon.co.uk.  If you live in the UK you can pick these up from any Bodycare store.

W7 – another good quality budget brand, can be bought here or here

Stargazer Nail Polish – some lovely lines in cute round bottles

Nail Pop – part of a new range by Look Beauty.  Some STUNNERS here and such a good price.  Ship internationally from £7.50

Do add any others I might have missed into the comments box and I’ll keep adding more as I find them.

Other European Brands

Essence and Catrice – I’ve never seen this in the UK, seems its a European thing.  Will look next time I’m in Europe and get some!! EDIT – you can now get these in the UK from Sally Magpies

KOH Cosmetics – A dutch based brand that also has some lovely colours… like Blue Universe.  Great blog post here on how to purchase KOH.
