Etude House Ice Cream Nail Polishes

 Etude House Ice Cream Nail Polishes in Banana and Blue Mint

Etude House Ice Cream Nail Polish in Blue Mint


How cute are these nail polishes?! I must admit, the packaging is what initially attracted me to them. The price persuaded me, too, being just £2.90 each (including P&P). 
The formula was a pleasant surprise, with Blue Mint taking 2 coats to become opaque, and Banana taking 2-3. Yellows tend to be streaky, and the other similar yellow I have (Sally Hansen's Yellow Kitty) takes 3 coats WITH a white base, so I'm really happy with this one. 
On its own, Blue Mint looks like a sky blue, but compared to my other sky blues, it's definitely more turquoise (which is great because I didn't have one!). 
As you can tell, I'm really impressed with these and would definitely recommend them. I think they'd make great presents, too!



I'm really tempted to buy Green Apple as well now, which is a light lime/grass green. Are there any shades catching your eye?

    1. Yeah, they're so bright and pretty! I don't do anything to my nails, so I can't help you there! My nails just naturally grow quickly. But if yours are breaking, maybe look at some nail strengtheners? I know Sally Hansen has a variety. I've just looked and I don't think this brand does have a UK website. eBay is probably your best bet (I set my eBay up when I was about 13! And PayPal is quick and easy to use too)

  8. Absolutely loved one of these I got, it's a speckled illamasqua dupe
    http://benebelle.com/2013/03/22/etude-house-mint-chocochip/ if you want to see. LOVE the packaging, one of the reasons I got it, I thought it was just their "ice cream" polishes that came in this packaging! As I have an Etude House glitter as well which is in different packaging
