Etude House is a Korean brand cosmetic company. One of their spokesperson is Lee Min Ho, gorgeous actor from Boys Over Flowers ^_^
I have been wanting Etude House polishes since the first time I laid eyes on them on a friend's Facebook page.
The bottle is so cute and the colors available are actually really interesting!
So I arranged a swap with a wonderful person in Singapore who had access to this brand.
Dear Darling Nails Bling Bling collection
Black Glam, Black, and Spangle Purple
Peach blush and Strawberry blush
Tender Mint, Ruby Purple, and Mint
Petite Darling Nails HD Beam and High Heel Pedicure (white cap)
Plum Chou, Beach Green, Fantastic Heart PealTop coat
I have no idea what the blue one is called. It was a gift from the the swapper :D
Out of the 12 I have tried 8 of them and I have found the formula to be quite good. The cremes are opaque in 2 coats and they are neither think nor runny. Glitters are amazing! The black glam required about 3 coats of topcoat before it became shiny, but the color only took 2 coats to be opaque.
The LuciDarling collection is by far my favorite. The mint colors have this amazing shimmer to them and the ruby purple has cute silver stars and hexes
Here is a quick swatch of some of them. Expect to see the rest of the colors pop up soon!

I am getting more Etudes at the end of the month because I am so pleased with these. The colors are so unique and the pretty bottles are too awesome to pass up!
you can get these from directly from Etude House USA for around $4 to $7 a bottle
you can also get these on ebay from rubyruby76 for $1 to $8 a bottle. I have never purchased polish from her but I did get some BB creams. She ships directly from S. Korea but she is very prompt and very nice.
