I stumbled upon some nail polish stores in Hong Kong, selling OPI/China Glaze/Zoya/Essie/Color Club/Seche etc at reasonable prices. I’m used to getting these items at bargain prices, so I didn’t end up buying much… There were no savings involved, just convenience!
It all started with my sighting of this woman outside the H&M at Queen’s Street Central:
I then went hunting for the store and wound up with just three polishes:
Zoya is hard to find in Singapore, so I happily paid HKD80 each for the Zoyas – that’s about S$13? The Essie polishes were going at HKD60 each, so that was slightly under S$10.
Apart from polishes, I also bought some nail art supplies when I went shopping in Fa Yuen Street and Temple Street.
Fa Yuen Street had market stalls lining both sides of the road, and a few of them offered gel nail services for HKD138… Insane! However, it looked very unsanitary and the products they were using looked quite dodgy so I would say… Buyer beware! I bought the stackable pots of glitter and dried flowers for HKD50 (HKD28 if you just buy one) at one of the stalls. That’s about S$8?
At Temple Street, I spotted a proper shop selling nail stuff and bought more glitter, some ceramic flowers, bling ribbons and a pack of press-on metallic nail stickers. All for only HKD89 (S$14+)!
I actually bought a ton of other stuff which wasn’t nail-related at all… Should I post pictures here? 😛
