Hi everyone! Holidays are over, and it's back to reality! I may sound chipper about it but I'm really not :P Today I have another brand from Korea to share with you guys. It's called Etude House and it's supposedly a very well known brand in Korea and so I decided to try it for myself. I ordered it along with my Tony Moly's.
WH020 aka Extreme Jewel is a mix of purple silver glitters, packed with multi-colored, and holo glitters in a clear base. This was 3 coats.
BL019 aka Extreme Blue is a blue glitter mixed with gold, silver, and holo glitters in a sheer blue jelly like base. 2 coats
PK021 aka Extreme Rose is a pink glitter mixed with aqua, gold, and holo glitters with a sheer pink jelly like base. 2 coats.
Now what's amazing about these polishes are the different shapes of the glitters. It's a mix of round glitters, and hex glitters, a few micro-glitters as well.
I ordered these on eBay, if you want to know the seller information you may contact me through e-mail or twitter. I tend to not post seller information in case one of my readers get a bad experience and blame it on me (believe me, it happened to me before). So please buy at your own risk!
I took a macro shot of the bottles and added extra brightness to it just to show the glitters.
Extreme Jewel *drools*
Another plus about these polishes is that the bottles are pretty cute!
I also took pictures of the bottle to test out my DIY lightbox, and I'm satisfied with the results!
The formula for these were pretty good. It leans more toward the thick side, but nothing too hard to work with. I only had a hard time with Extreme Jewel because it was in a clear base. The solution was to wait a few minutes before applying next coat, just like most glitter polishes. One great thing about Korea brand polishes is that they don't have that typical polish smell. It didn't smell bad, but it didn't smell like roses either. Dry time was pretty fast as well. One coat of top coat smoothed out any gritty glitter feelings.
I would definitely buy Etude polishes again if more colors catches my attention!
What do you guys think about these?
