EtudeHouse: Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails in Strawberry

As most people know by now, I'm a massive fan of Korean cosmetics and in particular my favourite brand of EtudeHouse. Their products are so cute and that is the main selling point for me!

There have been a few reviews on their Sweet Recipe Ice Cream nail polishes, and I doubt mine will be much different. I bought a few of these nail polishes when I was in China, and I'm still waiting for the Mint Chocolate one. This is the most sold out as is a very good dupe for Illamasqua for only a few pounds. I paid around £1 for my polishes but they can be found on eBay around £3 including postage.

The bottle itself is absolutely gorgeous and looks like an old school ice cream with a waffle cone! This was it's selling point to me alone! The nail polish is a good size and comes with quite a wide brush which I found brilliant for application. I did need to apply it three times as it is quite light, but this added more glitter and looked fab. As usual, if you type a lot it does chip off quite quickly but for the price, is a brilliant dupe to some of the other high end or high street brands out there!

Please excuse my nails, my acrylics came off just before my wedding which was a nightmare! And I haven't had time to get a decent manicure since being back in the UK.

What do you think about buying Asian dupes?
Will you be buying more Korean cosmetics in the future?
