REVIEW: CHI CHI "PARTY PRINCESS" 8 NAIL POLISH SET

I recently picked up the Chi Chi "Party Princess" Salon Formula 8 Nail Set on the Boxing Day sales, paying only $13 instead of $20. Considering each nail polish worked out to be $2.50 (full price, not even including the discount) I wasn't expecting much quality wise but thought the pastels were gorgeous for Summer and worth trying out. I was happily surprised to find that all of the colours are extremely pigmented and only take 1-2 coat/s to achieve a fully opaque colour on the nail! 

The colour selection of pastel shades are absolutely amazing and very comparable to the pastel range that Face Of Australia released at the beginning of Spring. There is not one shade that I don't absolutely adore! The two bling shades are great glitter top coats, perfect for an accent nail. The gold matches all of the pastel colours and the purple looks good over the pastel purple.The only polish from the whole set that I don't absolutely adore is the purple glitter because it doesn't really put a lot of glitter on your nails like the gold does.

Don't let the price fool you, these nail polishes are full sized with 11g of product in each bottle. Every Myer would have them discounted to $13 which means that each nail polish works out to be only $1.60! That is more than half price a BYS nail polish which are generally known as some of the cheapest on the market and aren't as great quality as these Chi Chi ones are.
I think this was a holiday edition set but it is definitely worth checking out your local Myer to see if they still
have some stock because mine has a few left. 

Thanks for reading,

Thanks lovely :) They are surprisingly really great!

@Gianna
They have definitely become more appealing lately as a brand because they are so affordable but still good quality :)

Seems like you got yourself a great deal. Nice colors by the way, though I especially loved the lavender! Next time I go to a nail salon, I'm definitely picking out pastel polish in a lavender shade.
