    pammy, how about YSL? we dont have their cosmetics line na noh?

  2. melvel says:

    Maybe you can add Barielle and American Apparel too?

    • pam says:

      will do! where do you buy your Barielle? I don’t have a single bottle yet… :)

      • Sherbeth says:

        Hi Pam, I bought mine from Digital Traincase :) I haven’t tried it out though but when I saw the swatches, I couldn’t resist Lava Rock and Make it a Latte .

        I am so into nail polish right now and slowly building up my collection :) Thank you for posting this shopping guide, now I know where to get more harharhar :)

        • pam says:

          Oh cool! I love Digital Traincase, Sol is awesome :)

          I have about five bottles of Barielle now but I haven’t tried wearing them yet… :)

          Glad to know you’re loving polish! I should update this guide soon.. :D If you have questions on where to get certain brands and shades, let me know..

  3. Nikkiz. says:

    Hi Pam! I buy my Barielle directly from the website!

  4. kittykoo says:

    how do you prevent your nails from turning yellowish? they said to use a base coat first before applying nail polish, but when i used bobbie base coat, after a week when i removed my polish, my fingers were all yellowish. can you recommend any good base coat that is readily available in manila?

    • pam says:

      kittykoo, i use orly top 2 bottom – you can find it in sm department stores :)

      polish with dark pigments are notorious for staining your nails so you might want to stay away from them while you’re waiting for your nails to go back to being white again :)

      and Moi is right, lemon juice works.. some girls swear by whitening toothpaste too..

  5. Moi says:

    @kittykoo – Have tried Sally Hansen and it is ok. Now using Orly Bonder which is a rubberized base coat. There are lots of treatments available if you want to remove the stains from your nails. I also read about putting lemon juice on your nails to remove the stains but I haven’t tried yet.

  6. Kate says:

    @kittykoo: I found this nutrition coat from The Face Shop some days ago. It comes in a bottle and you apply it like polish too (though its consistency is a little runny-er than polish). You put it and let it sit for a while (I prefer to rub it on my nails a few minutes afterward). After that, you can wipe it off to remove the residue before you apply your base coat. It works for me. :)

  7. kittykoo says:

    have you tried etude house nail polish?

    • pam says:

      yes! need to add etude to this list!

      i’ve never bought a polish from etude though – my bottles are from a friend who went to singapore :)

  8. kittykoo says:

    pam, do you know where i can buy art nails corrector? thanks!

    • pam says:

      hi kittykoo! do you mean the corrector pens? i haven’t seen any in the stores here..

      will let you know if i find any but you might also want to make your own by wrapping a piece of cotton around an orange/wooden stick and dipping it in polish remover :) this works even better than corrector pens, according to reviews..

      :)

  9. Christine says:

    Essie is also available at Duty Free, the one at Paranaque. They sell it for $8 each :)

  10. nikkitah says:

  11. danielle says:

    How much is Butter London nail polish here? And how bout Chanel nail polish? :D

  12. Denise says:

    Hi. You have a really nice nail polish collection.
    Have you tried Nfu-Oh? It’s a Korean brand and they have really nice nail polishes. Their flakies are awesome! :D

  13. Pi says:

    How abut the claire’s mood polish where can I buy them? :)

    • pam says:

      Hi Pi, you can get Claire’s from Claire’s branches in the US.. Right now I don’t know any local sellers that sell claire’s mood polish :( but i’ll keep you posted if that changes :)

  14. Sherbeth says:

    Hi Pam,

    Where can I get NuBar nail polishes (specifically the Fortress collection) locally? Thanks. :)

    • pam says:

      Hey Sherbeth!

      I haven’t found NuBar polishes in stores here. The only two NuBars I own were purchased from a seller who posted them on GirlTalk the forum (Melvel, was that you?)

      You might want to try Sol, ask if she’s accepting pre-orders for NuBar :) http://digitaltraincase.multiply.com/

      I promise to let you know if I find a reseller here :D

    • Amy says:

      Hello =) I just found this site, it’s great! On my favorites now. Regarding the question about where to buy NuBar. I am a HUGE lover of this “3 free” brand so I thought I would share where I get mine. Of course, Amazon has some of the more popular colors listed at any given time. Usually about 10 pages to choose from. Also, you can buy direct from the UK at the following website: beautyshed.co.uk/ This site has EVERY color ever made =) It’s reliable. I have ordered up tp $150.00 worth at a time or just a few bottles here and there. Hope this helps!
      Kind Regards,

  15. Cathy says:

    Hi! I read in your Top Ten that you love blues and greens :) Try Skin Food nail polish! Im wearing one now that is in between the two and I love it! :)

    Also, what top coat brand would you recommend?:)

    • pam says:

      I have a couple of Skin Food bottles! I just haven’t had the chance to try it yet, I will soon! Which shade do you recommend? :)

      Seche Vite!!! I’m in love with it! I have two bottles that I use alternately and I still worry about running out!

  16. Liezel says:

    is there anywhere in SA (JNB) where the Deborah Lippmann nail products are stocked??? Especialy the air blue with glitter PLEASE?

    • Amy says:

      Hi,
      I don’t know of any that are stocked, but I saw that color on AMAZON last night. Hope that helps! =)
      Kind Regards,
      Amy Underwood

    • Peter Purple Liampo says:

  19. Ynaj says:

    Dear just to help you update your list :) Rustan’s doesn’t carry OPI anymore :( And oh, MAC has a new branch in Eastwood Mall! :)

    Btw, hope you can let me know which Topshop branch in SG carries the most stocks of make up / nail lacquers. :-)
