Étude House Minnie Mouse Polish

Hey, hey, hey!

This is a long overdue post, considering I got this polish for Christmas. It is so incredibly cute! The cute factor is just way up there.

I got two of the Étude House Xoxo Minnie nail polishes for Christmas and I tried out this Mickey/Minnie Mouse shaped glitter recently. There are a few different ones in the collection and this has no name on it but the bottle has got a number 6..? Korean polishes.. Drives me mad not having the names on them!

I layered the glitter over two coats of Essie Turquoise & Caicos. The large glitter is quite hard to get out and I think that this polish would benefit from the sponge method as it’s not a very densely packed glitter topper.



Étude House Glitter Pajama Party


Hope you all have a great Sunday! I had a great lazy day (surprisingly). Started off going to my mummy’s house for lunch. We had steamboat (a shared dish with a pot of boiling curry in the middle with a selection of veges, meat, seafood, noodles etc to cook in the curry. It’s really good!

So I managed to get my hands on yet another étude house polish from the Dear My Party range in Pajama party. This appears like a light blue base with lots of multi coloured glitters. I was quite excited to try it out when I got it online so I was so wrapped when it arrived in the mail. I decided to layer it over a white and Sally Hansen Himalayan Blue. I have to say I’m a little disappointed since it looks a lot like a LA Colors polish I have called Confetti. I still like it but.. I could’ve spent my money on something else and been happier. Oh well! Just add it to my growing collection haha.

Also, just on a random side note. I watched Les Miserables on Tuesday and the songs have been stuck in my head ever since which is fine but I don’t know ANY of the words. Sigh.





Gifts from Seoul: étude house


So today I thought I would finally post about the presents from my friends Tim and Courtney who went on holiday to Asia recently. When they said they were going to Korea only one thing came to mind. Not kimchi. Not BBQ. Not even bb cream. Nail polish. Ohhhhhhhh nail polish. I hear so many great things about Korean brands of nail polish and I’m keen to try others. I only have Étude house so far but skinfood and nfu oh are at the top of my list to try next. Luckily I can probably get some more in November! 🙂

Anyway on to the stuff I actually got!! Oh my gosh I just love the packaging it’s so cute!! I got two pretty polishes called Powerful Peach and Lunatic Purple. I must use the purple but I have used the pink already. It’s like.. A really bright almost but not quite neon pink. I really like it and it’s not like anything I already have, which is always a plus? I also got the gradation set (which I posted about already) and a dotting tool – no more toothpick for me, I’m going legit! The bag also had some BB cream samples which I’m keen to try. I haven’t jumped on the BB cream bandwagon quite yet..










Graffiti heart nails


Today I found some Étude House polish at a random store while shopping. They only had three bottles and it was two for $8.00 so I just got two (great restraint) I can’t read the labels on the bottom but they have got codes: GR601 (the teal colour) and WH702 (the grey). I have to say the formula is great – I used two coats. I then used a red polish by Orly (Soul Mate) to create red hearts on the tips of my nails then created an outline with a black striper. Then I just used a dotting tool with a white polish to create the highlight.

I loosely followed this tutorial by Nailside for this look 🙂
