Etude House Dear Darling Nail Polish in No. 36

Most of you know by now that I'm addicted to Gold and anything shimmery or glittery. And that is exactly what I found when I went to Etude House one day as I look through their nail polish collection.

I quickly grabbed this polish as it suits my personality and most accessories I wear. :)

Dear Darling no. 36 is a bit muted gold and not the 24K or Italian gold type.
Blends well with my yellow undertone skin and compliments a lot of clothes I own.
The glitters aren't all that intimidating and can be safely worn for work that allows an amount of freedom of expression. For school though, I think you should pass this off for fear of being called to the guidance office. :)

1. Easy to use. Brush sweeps off my nail smoothly.
2. Dries quickly.
3. Last long. I've had mine for a week and it hasn't chipped off even a little (despite nail growth and my obessessive hand washing).
4. Loads of colors to choose from.
5. Very pigmented.
6. Affordable at Php198 per bottle.

1. none whatsoever.

Will I be getting this again? Definitely! This is a polish color than I can see myself sporting every day of year. :)

much love,
