So I mentioned in this post about the 3 The Face Shop nail polishes RM12 and how I bought them. Well, I'm gonna do a review on the colours that I purchased (Was so excited I couldn't wait, haha!)! But before that, just wanted to share a quick picture of my mini weekend haul.
From left to right:
- Etude House Any Oil 21
- The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Nails RD301
- The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Nails OR201
- The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Nails 03 - Topcoat
- Winmax Enamel Diluent from Daiso
So yep! Those were just a couple items I purchased over the weekend, and reviews will definitely be coming soon!
So now... onto my nail polish review, hehe!
Left to right: Nail polish in OR201, RD301, and 03 - Topcoat
Although my pictures include all three of the nail polishes, I will only review the two coloured polishes today. =)
So first I'll give brief descriptions about both polishes, and then get onto the combined review. First up is...
Product: The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Nails in OR201
Made in: Korea
Colour: This shade is a rather unique shade IMO, it is like a creamy pastel orange, but it's not completely orange, kinda looks like it's mixed with a bit of yellow too. So yea, I like it for its unique colour!
Next up is...
Product: The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Nails in RD301
Made in: Korea
Colour: This polish is a chilli red colour which is very bright and loud, but it screams fun! It does look a bit creamy too and has slight orange undertones. I do not think it's a unique shade but it definitely is a very fun shade of red to add to any collection.
So now for the combined review!
Packaging: The polishes come in a simple glass bottle with a white cap. Simple packaging - I like. =)
Application/Texture/Consistency: The texture of these polishes are neither too thick or too runny, and application was a breeze! I must have been super excited or something but I really enjoyed applying these polishes, they were so easy to apply! Two coats gave a smooth, opaque finish. The long cap also helped give me better control over how I apply the polish. However, the brush is slightly too thin for my liking, so I found I needed more strokes to cover my nails. Also, RD301 applied without any streaking, but OR201 did streak and leave some bald spots here and there- but this is most likely due to the fact that it is a pastel, so just try to apply even layers and it should be ok. =)
Here's a picture of the brush (this is from RD301, but the brushes on all nail polishes from this range are the same):-
Durability: Both these polishes lasted on my nails for approx. 4 days without both a topcoat or a base coat before they started to chip. Pretty long-lasting. =D
Price: At RM5.90 per bottle (and even cheaper if bought during the promotion of 3 for RM12), it is pretty affordable for decent quality polish.
So here's some swatches!:-
Would I repurchase?- For the quality and price, I definitely would.
Where can I purchase these?- At all The Face Shop stores nationwide
So now I gotta run - gotta revise for my last paper (International Law)! Have a great week ahead! =D
