Etude House have been going crazy for glittery nail polishes recently, especially the chunky top coat type! I can’t help but being drawn to them even though I am usually too lazy to even use varnish most of the time!
The Pink Prism range is a collection of affordable pink colours and 3 top coats which I purchased. These varnishes are quite dinky sized:
Here is the full range of 6 colours;
Only the 3 top coats interested me since the 3 pink polishes are pretty dupeable and also look quite sheer!
Here is no 1 which has chunky multi coloured candy shaped hexagonal glitters. God knows how many coats went into their swatch because here is mine after two coats!!!
No. 5 is a hearts glitter with smaller pieces and shapes for interest.
This fares slightly better although the glitter distribution is still low and a bit uneven. The polish is clear.
One thing I find with ALL Etude House polishes is that they run on the thick and gloopy side which means they take a while to dry and also chip within a day or two.
Here they are on top of a beige (sorry not the best colour but I happened to have it on!). I really had to layer about 3-4 coats of top coat to get this result. With the gloopy texture too it would take about 5 years for all this to dry properly:
Another day, another glitter top coat. They’re ok but the chunky-ness of the glitters makes it feel like something you could make yourself with some cheap clear polish and craft glitter.
