GG = Greece Grab

Every time I go abroad, I try to allocate some time for investigating the local nail polish assortment and eventually buying a couple of polishes from a foreign country. For example, last time I went to Italy I brought back 14 new polishes :) Now, although I was in Greece for nearly a month, I bought only... one bottle. But quite an interesting one - it's called GG Line #12, and there is no single mentioning about this brand on the web (!!!), despite a rich colour palette in the shops..

GG Line #12 is a blue jelly with tricolour hexagonal glitter: gold, blue and purple. After the 1st coat it was so sheer that I thought it will never hide the VNL, but it did, right after the 2d coat! Drying time was quick, and I applied a thin layer of top coat before photographing.

The bottle shape reminds me of MIYO polishes, the brush was quite wide. I dislike wide brushes, but it was not so disturbing this time.

As you see, this brand is new for me and a mystery in general. I only know that it's produced in Greece (Thessaloniki), costs around 2€ and has pretty colours. And this number 12.. I just dug it out from a huge nail polish shelf in Hondos Center. I still regret about not taking a neon green of Erre Due *sigh* Hopefully, I'll come back for it! :)

    1. I'm so flattered to read that! :) :) I have quite "usual" polishes too, but lately I only buy the "outstanding" polishes and try not to breed dupes.. It's hard because there are so many pretty things out there, but I keep on trying! :)

    1. Glad to hear that! :) I noticed that they have a loooot of unknown polish brands in Greece, maybe local or regional.. But this is the only bottle that caught my attention so much that I bought it :) Although I saw many pretty cremes and jellies too..
