Etude House Ice Cream Nails BL601 Blue Mint

Etude House is a brand that I've heard a lot of rave reviews for, but I've never tried anything from the brand... that is until now. I'm currently wearing Etude House's Ice Cream Nails in the shade #BL601 Blue Mint* ($4 USD on Mootta). This shade is a bright blue with amazing pigmentation - this type of shade definitely has me longing for Spring!


"Sweet pastel color nails
Use the soft texture to draw roughly for melting look!" - Mootta

Etude House's Ice Cream Nails come packaged in adorable ice cream cone bottles - what's not to love? The brush is fairly wide, and I can cover my nail in two strokes. The tapered lid can make application a bit tricky, but it wasn't a deal breaker. This formula is on the thicker side, but I still found it easy to work with. The first coat was very pigmented, but I still think that you need a second coat to deepen the colour. I then used a top coat for added shine, and I'm extremely happy with this mani!  #BL601 Blue Mint is a bright blue with slightly green undertones that are more apparent in real life (stupid flash!). This polish isn't for the faint of heart, and it might not be office appropriate, but I really love it! The formula dried fairly quickly, especially considering how thick the formula is. 



Have you tried anything from Etude House before? Are you a Korean beauty fan? I'm really wanting to venture out and try more Asian cosmetics, so any recommendations would be appreciated! What's currently on your nails?

  3. I've tried to buy these polishes from my eBay suppliers TWICE now, but they never send them and I keep getting my money refunded. Weirdness -- 'cause I want them for the bottles alone!
