The face shop

During our fabulous honeymoon trip in Thailand we did visit some "normal" shops as well.We had seen most markets and touristic sale points at the end of the trip. And we didn't wanted to buy fake watches or shirts at all and at some point we'd lost total interest in those sellers, we wanted to se something different...and we`re dieing to get a little arco as well since the weather was 40 degrees celcius all the time. Don't get me wrong here, not saying we disrespect the sellers at all. It was the agressive sellers that followed you around from corner to corner, which were loads in Krabi and Phuket. Smaller cities like Hua Hin, Chiang Mai and even Bangkok people are so extremely friendly.

When we arrived in Phuket there were some western-like malls and one of them in the old part, Robinson, we wanetd to visit since even the locals and taxi-drivers wanted to take us there. It was one huge department store, not even a mall :)  As I would never fit in the petite thai clothing sizes I ended up in the make-up department and wow...I got amazed by the wide range of nailpolishes they sell. 1 brand caught my eye immedaitly, The face shop. Their products are organic (there is a little leave-image on top of the brush), free to try in the shop and extremely cheap!! Don't know if it was thai standerd, but to my standerds 0,75euro is cheap:) As we were on a trip and couldn't just buy everything we want since the lack of space in our bags I thought 5 bottles would be okayish. I still regret not buying more. I ended up with therse 5;

YL701; a golden sheer foil, wouldnt call it yellow though.
BL601 ;a blue multiglitter in blue base
BL603; a blue shimmer...I couldnt get te entire sticker off, so teh bottle looks a bit silly sowwie :)
BR802; a nude sheer shimmer
PP408; a purplecreme

All polishes, except the glitter one, do tend to be half transparant. Defo needs 3 layers to make it a nice consistent color.

**ooeeehh I`ll soon make a post of the bags I bought during the trip ;) All fabric handbags by a brand called NaRaYa
