My nails are not in great condition at the moment so I decided to cut them really short and pile on the conditioning treatments last week. They seem to be slightly healthier looking but when they are short, I don’t like wearing dark nail varnish and when I was looking through my stash for a nude, I rediscovered this bottle from Korean brand Etude House.
This is such cute packaging, something which is commonplace with Korean products. I am actually going to South Korea this summer for a day as part of our Japanese cruise and I plan on stocking up on unique beauty items when I’m there.
This ice-cream bottle contains the shade Strawberry Stars Candy: a pale pastel pink with pink, purple and blue glitter pieces. I like the speckled finish this gives as you add more layers and it always reminds me of Mini-Eggs (sidenote: I have already spotted these and Creme Eggs in supermarkets!)
I used two layers of polish and then finished with a layer of Seche Vite which helped smooth down the odd piece of glitter that wasn’t sitting flat against the nail.
I’m planning on only wearing nail varnish for half the week (or when my manicures usually start to chip) then having a few days ‘off’ applying treatments to try and remedy my rather sorry-looking nails.
