I bought a lot of new nail things this month. I’ll admit, I’m a little ashamed. But, all this nail stuff is so low cost that I almost don’t care.
Here today to show off my “haul” from Nabi Cosmetics. It’s a “haul” not a haul because it’s three nail polishes that totaled to around $5.50 total. Each nail polish on the Nabi Cosmetics website is around $1.50 each, much like the rest of their products on the website. So far, I’ve only tried the nail polishes, but I am enthusiastic to try a few other things from the brand in the future.
Let’s start with a story about the nail polishes I bought. Back in high school, I used to try to shop in this store called Metropark. It’s since closed down nationwide, filed for bankruptcy. I remember checking out one time and at the checkout counter was a display of Nabi Cosmetics glitter nail polish. I could only afford to try one because they were actually quite expensive. If I can recall correctly, I think I paid $10 for the polish.
It was this amazingly glittery, big flaky gold nail polish that reflected crazy rainbow in each chunk of glitter. I used it for everything. I still have it to this day, 7 years later. It’s one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. I figured it’s probably time to replace it, since at this point it’s probably a hazard to keep using.

I was shocked to see the website had that brand, repackaged and $8.50 less than what I remember paying for it. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it, it was the big, gold, flaky, glittery goodness from high school, same name and everything and available in different colors, so I bought them all.
Gold big ball, silver big ball and wow, it’s really called blue big ball. Some things about the brand: their social media has gone silent as of a few months ago. I know it’s such a weird, millennial thing to be sketched out by a brand that has no social media, but I totally was. The polish is now called Nabi 5, not sure what that means, but it is. The packaging is smaller and more plain.
The polish couldn’t be more incredible. I’m on the website now, trying to link things and filling my cart to try more as we speak. Also, the shipping and handling was so fast. The order processed that day and mailed out the next, arrived at my doorstep a few days later.
Now sit back and revel in the sparkly goodness.
Even the removal of this nail polish was sparkly and perfect. All in all, this was a great nail polish experience. 10/10 would buy again (as I fill my cart ahhh).
