uk magazine freebies - november 2012

This month Nails Inc have teamed up with a magazine to shower us in affordable versions of their products (£11 for a nail polish, really?!) and there's also a few other good bargains out there, here's what I've managed to find...
Glamour (£2) is offering a choice of four full size Nails Inc nail polishes. I got hold of Motcomb Street, mainly because it was the only colour left in my local newsagents, but it was the colour I had my eye on anyway so that makes me a very happy bunny. Motcomb Street a very deep navy, verging on the borders of black - very winter appropriate!
The other colours available are St James, which is a festive red, Elizabeth Street, a pale pink and Glamour Glitter which is a glitter I had my eye on, but when I saw swatches it looked a bit sparse for my liking. But all in all, I think all of the shades are worth getting, especially at a very reasonable £2.
The magazine also comes with a Debenhams Fragrance & Beauty Gift Guide, a sachet sample of the Rimmel BB Cream and another of the Nivea Express Hydration Primer.

Marie Claire (£3.70) has a choice of two Jemma Kidd products, the Skin Perfection Primer or the i-define Volumising Mascara. I heard somewhere that Jemma Kidd makeup is getting discontinued, maybe this is a way to get rid of stock?

Cosmopolitan (£3.50) has - in my opinion - a rather dull free gift with it, a full size 100ml V05 Smoothly Does it Frizz Free Crème but maybe it'll appeal to some people and I'm rather biased as I have no need for products of that kind. After all, the actual product on it's own only costs 39p more than the price of the magazine.

I've seen online that the Company magazines in WHSmith have a choice of two mini Jessica nail polishes (which retail for around £8) in different shades of red but since I don't have a Smith's in my area I can't confirm anything, although it's well worth a look and maybe someone can confirm or deny this deal?


  1. i have this to, and i love the shade i have it on my nails with the glitter and it looks so nice!:)

  2. I picked up a copy of Glamour with the Elizabeth Street polish and I'm currently wearing it on my nails and although it's a tad streaky, I do like it quite a bit! x
