TK Maxx Treasure


Now I'm not usually a huge fan of TK Maxx, with it's rows and rows of rails with very little organisation, so I very rarely go but I went along with my sister last week and was pleasantly surprised.  To be honest I usually walk around with blinkers on because I hate it so much but whilst my sister was looking at the sunglasses, I noticed the beauty section right next to them.  Thanks to this I have a new found love for TK Maxx.  It's not very organised so you have to have a bit of a root through the shelves but there are some right bargains to be found if you have the patience to do so.  I ended up getting the most gorgeous smelling candle for my room, which isn't really the treasure I found but I had to include it because I bought it at the same time and it really does smell incredible.  The real treasures that I did stumble upon though were the nail polishes.

Yes that's right, I finally got my hands on some Essie nail polishes.  I've been wanting to try an Essie polish for ages, and even more so since they started selling them at Superdrug, but was a little put off by the £7.99 price tag when Barry M was there to seduce me with it's £2.99 polishes.  All of the Essie polishes were in boxes of three and I just picked a box up to see how ridiculously expensive they were, so my eyes nearly popped out my head when I saw they were only £9.99 for the three!  They had lots of different colours but I picked this one for the mint green polish that I have seen on many other blogs.  When I got them out the box to take a look at them and try one out I noticed the name on the bottom of the polish.  I decided on the pink one and when I went to look at the colour I saw that it said Tangerine.  Now I would expect a polish named Tangerine to be orange so I searched for it online and sure enough it is a red/orange colour.  So then I looked at the mint one and saw that it was called Capri, so out of curiosity I looked this one up too and it appears to be a brighter version of Tangerine.  So I'm assuming that they have the wrong names on the bottles and that's why they are selling them at such a good price.  The last one is called Ballet Slippers but I can't tell online if this is wrong or not because it looks pretty much the same colour.
As you can see this nail polish definitely doesn't look "Tangerine", so the name is definitely the wrong name but that doesn't really bother me.  Although if somebody happens to know the actual name of this polish please do let me know.  I can see what all the fuss is about with Essie polishes now though, it applies so nicely and so far it seems to be pretty chip resistant.
If you have a TK Maxx near you I would say it's worth a trip just to check out their make up section.  Not only did they have these Essie polishes but they also had packs of four Nails Inc polishes for £12.99, which normally cost a little less than that for just one.  I'm definitely going back for more when I have a bit more spare cash.
