Spotted! New to the High Street HEMA

Oh my word!  Consider this a PSA!  I was visiting my family over Easter when we popped into Kingston Upon Thames for some shopping and lunch.  Lo and behold they have a HEMA!!!  I love HEMA, their homewares and stationary are to die for, plus their kids ranges are excellent – however they were only in Europe.  But did you know they also did beauty?  Well they do.  And now they have UK stores, three to be exact, but they also SHIP THEIR WHOLE RANGE via the website here….

I took some sneaky pics so you can get a sense of the range.  I previously review a holo polish on the blog here.

         You can see the price point is pretty good, in line with places like KIKO and Barry M.

The full Beauty section can be accessed here, but my top picks are the Dots Top Coats and this gorgeous orange….

I really hope HEMA crack the UK market and start opening more stores soon, particularly outside of London.  Have you visited on of the HEMA stores?  Did you get any polish?  Let me know what you think in the comments.

HEMA – Holographic Bordeaux

Hey there!  Happy Bank Holiday to those of you in the UK, hope you are going something good with your day off.  I have a lovely holographic polish I picked up from the Dutch store HEMA when I was in Holland recently.  There seems to be a six polishes in the holographic range.

Anyway, onto the pictures….

The application of this was a bit tricky, the polish was drying as I was applying it.  Plus the polish has a tendency to drag if you go over one area twice.  What you see above is two coats, the second coat does provide complete coverage and the colour is lovely.  A mid purple with a surprisingly amount of holo-ness for your 4€

Naturally, unless you are near a HEMA or have a dutch buddy, you probably will not be able to get your hands on these.  But I thought it was worth sharing 🙂
