Since I don’t have a car, it can be pretty hard for me to get to warehouse sales and discounters out in suburbia, which is why SaleEvent.ca is an online store I love to shop at for cheap nail polish and other makeup items. A lot of it is discontinued stuff, as well, so it’s a good source for harder-to-find products and shades.
I’ve also had nothing but positive experiences with the shop—with my most recent order, I experienced a technical browser error, and their customer service dealt with it superbly. My orders always come well-packed and the items are always in fine condition.
Here are my combined two most recent orders, from February and March, made partly because I found out that my favorite drugstore foundation (Revlon Nearly Naked in Nude) was discontinued last year and I wanted to stock up.
Walmart’s in-house brand, Pure Ice, has released 16 new colors for Spring 2017 in their regular line of Nail Polish.
It’s a super fun and funky collection, with a nice balance of spring-y creams, on-trend metallics, and pretty glitters.
The names are fun, too! Periwinkle in Time and Y’Orchidding Me are my faves. (The whole feel—including the website—reminds me a lot of Sinful Colors, owned by Revlon. I wonder if there’s any connection… Now that I think of it, Pure Ice’s new line of Gel-like polish is called Shine with Gel Tech; Sinful’s launch from 2013 is called SinfulShine with Gel Tech!)
