Haul: For the Nails

Hey, m' dears! Here are the things I got for myself last month. They're not much and they're all for the nails!


Items:
Etude House Fresh Nailwash Safe Nail Color Remover (01 Sweet Floral) - P78.00
Etude House Petit Darling Nails HD Beam in BR308 - P98.00
Etude House Petit Darling Nails in PK013 - P48.00
OMG Cracked nail polish in Nude - P34.75
Caronia nail polish in Joy - P27.75
Bobbie nail polish in Milk Shake - P29.75

This haul's theme: NEUTRAL. Obvious? Well, that's because I am currently in search for the perfect nude nail polish for me. Ang OC ko lang sa pagpili ng shade, no? 

So far I'm happy with the Etude House polishes I got. I love how sheer PK013 is - one layer gives me natural-looking peachy nude nails. It has shimmers, though. But I do like how it makes my nails look clean! Love it! I should try gradient-ing with this. And I love BR308, too! It's a really neutral shade - not too dark, not to beige. Milk Shake is a bit too frosty to look natural, but the shade, I like! I haven't really used Joy on my nails yet. It's too light to be a nude shade for me but I know it will look good for French-tipping. It's actually part of Caronia's French-tip collection.

As for the crack nail polish, I bought a white one this time. I tried using it with my EH matte nail polishes as base, and the it made them look frosty! I've already posted about OMG crack polishes, by the way. Check my posts *here* and *here* if you haven't already. 


Swatches:


I applied 2-3 coats of each. I layered the crack polish over an Etude House matte nail polish.

Here's EH PDN in BR308 compared with Caronia Touch of Tan and Touch of Beige.


See what I meant by 'not too dark, not too beige?'

As for the nail polish remover, I think I like the Etude House one better than the The Face Shop one. I think. But I am sure that I love the scent of this pink variant more than that of the blue one. Read my review *here.*

Aaaaand that's it for my small for-the-nails haul! Did you get new nail polishes, too? Yes? High five! No? Go get some :)
