I bought these Juicy Cocktail nail polishes from Etude House on eBay a few months ago. I opted for trio as they looked fun and I liked the idea of gradient nails. The packaging is cute and the colour is subtle and pretty.
The first coat of light pink polish applied really well and I think this colour would look cute alone as a pink sparkle and look fab!
The second coat has mostly small glitter and the odd large glitter flecks in. This polish I found to be thick and a little harder to apply.
The third coat was quite pretty and that has large dark pink flecks of glitter in and this would make a pretty glitter top coat.
I’m not sure I did a very good job of recreating a gradient nail (on the fourth nail in the photo). In my opinion these would be better as a pink base coat & a chunky glitter top coat. I wouldn’t use the second colour again as it was not great quality but the other two are lovely. Using some other colours from my collection I think I would try and recreate this again, maybe with blue / green nail polish. Watch this space.
Have you attempted this effect? Or do you have any Etude House recommendations as I would like to try some more products from this brand.
Whilst I was in San Francisco I wanted to visit Japan Town and more specifically The Face Shop. I had heard a few YouTubers talk about the one in Dubai and I wanted to have a look and see what cute fun Asian cosmetics they had and also buy some skincare.
The sales assistant was so sweet and very helpful even though the shop was busy. It seemed like a really popular place to go. I was drawn to their very large range of sheet masks, I have never tried them before and have heard great things about them. I bought 6 ranging in price from $2 – $6. Utter bargains.
First up The two Masks at the top of the photo really intrigued me as the have a separate section that has what feels like a liquid / serum in. They are masks by 3D Ampoule and I bought the Ceramide & Red Ginseng and the other is the Hyaluronic Acid & Colostrum. The instructions tell you to apply the liquid to your skin after washing your face then to place the mask on to your face and let the residue absorbe into your skin. These were $5 each.
I was after masks that would help make my skin look brighter and radiant so this next mask is for Hydrating and Revitalising so I was all over that and plus the packaging also looks super cute. Its called the Vita B Hydro Gel Mask $3
Next up I bought 2 of these so I could give one to a friend, its the CO-Q10 Essential Sheet Mask $2 each. This mask is meant to leave the skin smooth and supple. So we will see how I get on.
And finally the last Korean Skincare Mask I bought was the Real Oriental Herb Mask for Revitalization and this is aimed and skin that is dull and lot its radiance. I am excited to try this one as it says is contains a formula produced by brewing Korean-sourced Oriental Herbs, I am loving the sound of that. $6
Do you use Sheet Masks – do you like them? I’d be interested ti hear if you’ve tried any of the ones I bought.
