Etude House Swatches- part 2


On to part 2 of the Etude House polish swatch-apalooza!
This time I have some Shimmering and Sparkling members of the LUCIDarling collection


Sparkling Music Box Mint, Shimmering Blue Sherbet, and Shimmering Tender Mint

Tender mint, Blue Sherbet, and Music box Mint- all 2 coats

Tender mint, Blue Sherbet, and Music box Mint- all 3 coats
As you can see the Sparkling polish have a foil effect while the Shimmering ones are cremes with some micro flecks.
I recommend 3 coats for the Shimmering polish while I think that the Sparkling can easily get away with 2. Overall the formula for these is very nice. Not too runny, not too thick. The brush is also a nice medium size so a couple of swipes is all you need!


4 coats
Tender mint is reminiscent of Dress Maker by Milani. Tender mint is a little lighter and some of the micro flecks are pearly silver unlike dress maker. I prefer Tender Mint because it is shimmery-er but that's just my opinion :) It does run on the sheer side so 4 coats is a pretty safe bet to reach opacity.
3 coats

Blue sherbet is also really gorgeous! is has the same pearly silver flecks as tender mint but in a pretty baby blue shade. I've never seen a polish color like this, so I can't give you a comparison, just trust me on this: It's gorgeous! Blue sherbet is not as sheer as Tender Mint so 3 coats cover up any visible nail line.
2 coats
Finally there is Music Box Mint (also sometimes posted as Mint or Orgel Mint? I dont know....). It is a gorgeous foil sparkley polish in a greyed out green shade. It applies like a dream and only needs 2 coats to be fully opaque!
