Chunky Glitter Alert! Etude House Pink Prism Nail Polish – Swatches and Review

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:

Verdict:

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.
