Ebay has ruined my resolve not to spend for the second time this week. Note to self, stay away from the health and beauty section. Today’s purchase was a complete accident. I was scrolling through the health and beauty section of Ebay while I was waiting for the kettle to boil (really), and the Sweet Recipe Ice-cream Nails by etude house popped onto my screen. While I’ve used (and I’m currently loving) an Etude House BB cream, I haven’t tried or even looked at any of their other products and I had no idea they made nail polish. When this collection of polishes appeared I may have squeaked over-excitedly. These polishes immediately reminded me of the speckled polishes from Illamasqua that i’m dying to try. At £3.50 each, Ice-cream Nails are a quarter of the price, a budget friendly alternative to their Illamasqua counterparts and can be purchased from Ebay.
While the Etude House aren’t an exact dupe by any means, they’re similar enough and for the price I’m certainly not going to complain. The four shades in this collection are all fun pastels, each with speckles in complementing colours. I bought the shades Apricot Candy and Strawberry Stars Candy and I can’t wait to try them!
