It is so easy to get lost on etudehouse.com with their cuter than a button products and convincing descriptions. And all the merrier if they are spot on trend!
These polishes come in a creme formula. #194 is the only one amongst the three without gold shimmer particles. They don't possess as much of a wow factor as glitter textured polishes but nonetheless, they are still gorgeous (if it was not clear, I consider shimmers and glitters to be different). If you have never felt textured nail polishes, just imagine your nails submerged under a layer sand. It is gritty, unique and addictive to the touch - I find myself stroking my nails at all times.
The formula is consistent across the board. All three are patchy and streaky to apply and at least three coats are needed for complete opacity. The wear time leaves much to be desired as well for I had tip wear after two short days. The only saving grace (besides the beautiful pastel colours) is the quick dry time. All in all, I would rather go for Etude House's regular formula. Now those are awesome!
Are you into texture or do you prefer a smooth, slick finish?
