SInce I’ve added alot of nail polishes recently, I decided to take pics of my entire collection

Bases + nail mask

Top coats









A grand total of 78 bottles….a lot but you never feel that its enough. I would say that the most used would be my glittery reds and vampy purples. Most of my collection (OPI/China Glaze/Orly) were bought online from 8ty8beauty.com or transdesign.com. Very few were bought locally except for the Etude House polishes. Yes I am a polish snob so the bulk of my collection are salon brands. I’m lazy to label all the polishes in the pics individually, but do give me a shout if you’re keen to identify a particular polish 🙂

More reviews as I slowly start to try my stash. Basically the korean skincare items were cheap, and i received a sample of the EH collagen cream with my previous order and it was a basic moisturiser. On the whole though I find korean skincare very fragranced at times, so it’s not always suitable for me.

Okay those of you who are intrigued by Etude House from my various posts on it will be pleased to know that Etude House is now giving a free fluffy pen with every purchase, this is on top of the door gifts such as cotton pads or sheet masks. I bought the nail art pen for $6.90 but if you just want the fluffy pen, the cheapest items in the shop are the green tea nose pads and the charcoal chin mask at $0.90/pc.

Another nails of the day, I realised that I can’t use NOTW cos this is the 2nd set I’ve had on my nails today (the first being OPI Lincoln Park At Midnight) which is similiar except for the red-microglitter

I really liked this when I tried it on in the shop, so I had to get it. It’s a vampy shade, dark purple with red micro-glitter. I had a little problems with the application as it was a little watery, so ended up with 3 coats so that it would look opaque. Other than that, it is a nice colour. Since the red glitters are pretty fine,you won’t see it as much if you apply it on your toes (it looked like I had painted my toes a brownish-shade) so I’d rec it for fingers only

I think I went slightly nail polish crazy this week, 4 different colours withn 7 days. And one last thing, since the lighting in my home sucks, I bought a reading lamp for use when I paint my nails. Of course I had to buy the Hello Kitty reading lamp, although my dad asked as I was waiting at the cashier ‘why do you need a hello kitty lamp’. Hello pinkness!

As you can see, I’m really loving my Etude House Petit Darling nail polishes (only $2.50 each). While it can be difficult to apply nail polish with smaller bottles, I haven’t noticed any difference with these and the larger bottles which retail for $7.90. These are a cheap bargain for me, especially since I am going through a creme finish phase that is easily satisfied by these. Do note that I am a vampy polish sorta girl, think dark reds, purples etc.

EH Petit Darling nails BR 301

I just bought this colour yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to see how it looked like on my nails. It does look slighty more red-toned irl. I had a little trouble with the consistency of this one though, it was slightly watery so I had to paint 3 coats for it to look even. I like stores which are sincere in selling you the product (think nail polish removers and cotton pads), plus did I mention the free fluffy pen with any purchase 😉

This is random but the Sephora brand nail polish remover doesn’t remove nail polish that easily. I went swatch crazy at Sephora Ion (thus why my previous nail polish was removed so quickly after less than a week) and had a difficult time removing my old nail polish. It also seemed really greasy as well. I am still planning my transdesign order as there are so many new polishes to collect.
Mascara reviews coming up: Bourjois Volume Clubbing (Ultra Black) vs Fairy Drops (available in Watson’s now for $24.90) vs Majolica Majorca Lashes My Lashes Extend Elegantly (I’ve just found out that this has been discontinued, so I’m really disappointed as it was one mascara I was pretty happy with)

Etude House Nail polish + Eternal nail stickers

What I used:

PA stickers, PA base coat, EH #24, Orly Tiara

I have fallen in love with Etude House’s nail polishes, not only do they have nice shades of pink, the smaller sizes are pocket friendly at onlt $2.50 a pop. The larger ones are $7.90. I find that for the nail polish its not cost effective to get them off gmarket, since they are 1,000 won and 3,000 won respectively ( i’ve been paying about S$2-3/item for shipping so i only bought one online and the rest instore) but here’s the link if you’re still keen. This is the official Etude House seller on gmarket and I’ve always ordered my EH items from them. More on my gmarket hauls in another post 🙂
