A few days ago I wrote a błog post about finding this deal by a third party seller on Amazon UK - 12 full sized bottles of China Glaze nail polish for £11.99, with free shipping. The catch? The shades and polish types you'll receive are randomly picked each time, so if you already own China Glaze polishes then there is the chance that you could end up with something that you already own.
In the original post I recommended that fans of China Glaze nail polish try this offer out, because you only really need to get two new-to-you bottles that you like the look of to get the £12 out of the deal. Plus; as well as getting lovely polishes for yourself, you are basically getting birthday and Xmas pressies to give to family and friends without spending any extra money.Since receiving my box I read a customer review, on the Amazon product page, where the customer said that she got It's Alive in her 12 polishes. I've been lusting after It's Alive (I relapsed into nail biting a few years ago & totally missed China Glaze's 2011 Halloween collection) but don't want to pay Evilbay's inflated prices for it, so I thought that I'd try my luck with another Mystery Box.
As other customers have asked [via the Amazon Q & A page for this product] if reordering the Mystery Box results in getting any product repeats, I decided to make a blog post about my experience so that if anyone Googles for info on this product, then the post might help them decide if they want to place another order or not.
Will I end up with getting the same polishes again? I emailed the seller last time, and know that they pass the order along to their warehouse staff to fulfil it, meaning that the people who pick out the 12 polishes probably aren't the ones who know that I've already bought the same product before. So I'm guessing that I'm going to get some repeats from my last last order, but will I get at least two new-to-me shades? And what are my chances of getting It's Alive?
