Beauty | Duck & Dry Comes To The World's Biggest Primark

Duck and Dry Birmingham Primark

There's an actual nail, hair and eyebrows salon in the World's Biggest Primark in Birmimgham! How awesome is that?! I went to the store on the day after it opened & was in there for 3 and a half hours would you believe it...and spent £135...Watch the vlog here and the Primark Haul here. On my second time going to the World's Biggest Primark, I was kindly invited in to the Duck & Dry Xpress salon to get my hair braided, manicure and to have my eyebrows threaded (first time I was getting my eyebrows threaded, but we'll go into more detail later on in the post.) So let's see how the hair went.

I absolutely ADORED my hairstyle that a lovely lady did with my hair! She did it exactly how I saw on the picture on the wall in the salon and made it so beautiful and it lasted not only that day but the next day too. The lady who did my hair was so nice and friendly and we were chatting away about Avengers End Game (go watch it if you haven't already!) and all about our dogs etc. How can you not talk about your dogs cute habits? There was this really nice hairspray that she used and every time I'm in a shop that sells hair products I'm always looking out for it but I can't seem to find it yet - blue Got2B Hair spray that smelt LUSH. A dry style, which was what I had was £17 I think? But the cuts themselves are so cheap and affordable and they do it super fast too!

Onto eyebrows, now this was the first time I'd ever got my eyebrows threaded, so I was pretty nervous about the pain of it, but you know what? It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be! Didn't hurt as much and they turned out so nice that I want to go and get them done again there. It's £6 to get your eyebrows threaded so not bad at all really and only takes 5 minutes literally. The only bad thing that happened was that where one of my eyebrow hairs was, it must of been a hell of a thick one as a rather large (well small really) hole was left behind which was strange? And for some reason my forehead came out in a slight rash, not sure why as there was nothing put on there or anything as in products and the lady that did my eyebrows didn't even touch my forehead so I just think it was a slight reaction to my eyebrows being threaded. It wasn't irritable or anything but it was just there for like 3 days then went away. Very strange, but I love my eyebrows and their even more natural shape now - WOOHOO!

Lastly was my nails. Now this was a rather long process in the end as it took well over an hour, and my partner was with me so bless him he had to wait a while. The nail technician was so lovely and chatted away to me and we had some funny conversations. I chose a lovely turquoise blue for my nails and I wish I bought it now, as Adam said you can buy them from there and I didn't think you could as I thought they were the ones that were already open. Dam it...But anyway, my nails were shaped up nicely and then once they were painted I sat under the dryer (well my nails did) for about 15 minutes and the polish was so thick it literally didn't dry enough, and my being the clumsy person I am smudged them before I even left the salon. They asked if I wanted them repainted but it was only one finger so I said it was fine. Then later on due to shopping that day I smudged the rest of them. I think there was a bit too much polish as it was a gel coat and Primark nail varnishes tend to take longer to dry I've noticed anyway. But either way, if you want a quick manicure for £10, Duck & Dry is worth a try.
