Quickie - Lunchtime haul (GREAT bargains :D)

Goodday :)

Just a quick haul post today before heading to bed. Giveaway winner will be announced tomorrow. Just finished inputing all the datas on Excel and checked the extra entries. All I need now is just to check that all the participants are followers of Through Beauty Eyes either through Google Friends Connect, Twitter or Facebook. Then, we will have a winner. *jumps in excitement* =)

Anyhoos, without further ado, let's have a peep at the 2 nail products I got during lunch time today. =)

ITEM 1: SECHE VITE Dry Fast Top Coat, $14.95

My HG top coat as I change my nail colour every week, if not more frequently. Definitely one of the best.invention.EVER. However, one of the downside of this product is it gets really THICK after a while (in my case, after going through half a bottle). This is my THIRD bottle and I am really considering buying this special solution to de-thicken it instead of buying a new bottle everytime it thickens. 

Have any of you tried that de-thickening solution (I can't remember the actual name for it at the top of my head at the moment)? Are they any good??

ITEM 2: Pirates of the Caribbean 4 OPI Mini Nail Set, $14.95

When I saw Jaime and Lara with Stranger Tides and Skull & Gloss Bones respectively (if I am not mistaken) during the Kiehl's Beauty Blogger Event, I knew I had to get them babies. 

I was SUPER STOKED when I saw them selling for only $14.95 when I was looking for my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Most of you probably already know that beauty products in Australia are ridiculously priced - a full sized bottle costs a staggering $19.95 and Jaime got her mini set for $24.95!!! A BIG thank you to Michelle and Anita for taking me to SA Beauty Supplies Store after the Sydney Beauty Bloggers Yumcha Event

SA Beauty Supplies Store is located on Level 8, Dymocks Building on George Street, Sydney!

You Sydneysiders should definitely check that place out if you're looking for a good bargain! They do carry China Glaze Nail Polishes for $7.95 too. :) Do keep in mind though, your purse might not be very happy at the end of your trip. :P

Have a good week lovelies!
 Will be back with a more detailed update along with swatches of those gorgeous nail polishes soon! Stay tune.

Ooh, I didn't even know that they sold Seche Vite in Australia. I'll try and hunt it down in Perth. :D

I wanna try the Caribbean collection SO BADLY! D': Generally I'm not a fan of O.P.I, but sometimes they just hit the nail on the head with their awesome collections! Or.. at least the colors within their collections xD HEHE!
My Essie Fill the Gap! tends to get really thick as well -__-" So annoying..

Cendana: They definitely need more of these kinda stores in Australia! More reasons for you to visit Sydney. :)

Michelle: My friend saw them at DJ but I haven't actually checked it out cos I tend to look for local nail stores or online as they are usually cheaper. :)

나니: The colours are REALLY GORGEOUS! I have yet to try them on but will definitely post the swatches here. :) Essie has really pretty colours but I am still an Essie virgin :P

heartofpearl: You should before they run out! Love Stranger Tides and Skull and Glossbones :)

The seche product to thin polishes is called "seche restore". I use it- they sell it SA hair and beauty. Works really well!
