L-R: PP408, WH003, BL602It is a Korean Brand. I was looking for a matte lilac and blue color and found it there. I know its a lot more expensive than the other local brands but I guess its worth a try. I got it in three colors: (however I would really love it if they labeled the shades with a certain "name" instead of just numbers and letters.)
It comes in an 11 ml container.
The purple/lilac color has a matte to satin finish. It is not as matte as the other matte nail polishes from Etude since it has a tiny hint of gloss. same as through with the powder blue one. But I'm not really particular about that. I actually like the pastel shades with a hint of gloss.
The one in the middle is a shimmery-sheer pearl white nail polish. I usually coat it on top of a colored nail polish to give it a shimmery topcoat. you can use the WH003 alone but I guess you would need to do 2 coats of it for the shimmer to really stand out. it goes as a shimmery pearl white says the lady at the store. I haven't tried doing that yet.
|The shade here looks golden because of the shimmer and the camera's flash|
here's a photo of the blue one w/ a colorless topcoat from Ever Bilena:
Consistency: well, you would definitely need two coats when you want it to show the real colors of the polish since I find it to be slightly runnier than the Caronia/Bobbie nail polishes. It is almost like a cold "fresh milk texture" (i have no other way of explaining it but through a drink. haha) It doesn't dry as quick as i would want it to be after application. So it's definitely not anything you would want to put on right before you leave the house. I hate it when i have to double coat. I end up getting my nails messed up.
Staying power: well, it goes to about 3-4 days until the nail polish chipped on the tips of my nails. And a week before I had to remove them at max. depending on what you do.
Appearance/packaging: its a 4 out of 5 since its a bit bulkier than the other ones i have. but the container itself is very cute.
I like the colors of the faceshop nail polishes and they do have a wide range of shades to choose from. however for a budget freak like me, Id rather buy a much cheaper local brand. but I'm surprised that the nail polish does not dry out easily unlike other brands. (which i will have reviews as well soon) Thats why I would still love to purchase some more.
