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?


  1. This one is so pretty!
    I've got it on order so just waiting for the postman to bring it my way! :)

  2. What a brilliant polish, I adore the super cute packaging too! It really looks like the Illamasqua polishes, what a great little find.


  3. Reminds me a little of Mini Eggs!
