Monday Blues: Etude House PPP503 Celeb Girl

Hello lovelies! I can't believe another week went by so fast. I'm actually glad it's Monday today because I get to show you an amazing polish. This is seriously one of the best finds ever and I'm so glad I came across this polish thanks to Marisa.  I first saw the swatch on her Instagram page and immediately went to look for it on eBay. The brand is Korean and is only sold in Asia, so naturally I had to get it from there. But it was so worth it! Check it out!

There's a little confusion about these polishes online because they have both a number and a name. This one has PPP503 written on the bottle and the rest is written in Korean, so it's impossible to understand. According to the eBay listings, it is called Celeb Girl. I wanted to mention both names because it's kinda hard to find swatches of these polishes online.

So basically what we have here is an indie type polish, but without the crazy price and the drama. This was $5 with free shipping for a 9ml bottle. And a beautiful bottle, if I may add. It consists of a milky dusty blue base with blue and yellow/gold glitters. There are 3 sizes of glitter in total (mostly hex, but also some square ones) and 2 different shades of blue. I'm in love with the color combo in this polish!

The thing that surprised me the most was the amazing formula. I don't know how they managed to make the base to be opaque in just 2 coats but to still be sheer enough to make the glitter shine through. I only had one problem with this polish, namely the brush. It is huge! Forget the OPI brush and any other wide brush you've ever encountered. This is even bigger than that! So big that I could barely paint my left pinkie, which is my smallest nail. I also noticed that it's not very fast drying, but a nice coat of Seche Vite solves that problem immediately.

I can't tell you how happy I am that I found this polish. I really hope you like it too! Don't forget to check out what the other Monday Blues ladies have prepared for today! I'm very happy to announce that we have a new blogger joining us today, Yulia from Vicerimus. Her nails and photos are amazing, so I couldn't be happier that she will be showing blues with us every Monday. Here's the whole team:

  8. I currently have 2. Of course I need more! Any suggestions? I was looking at the Halloween duo on eBay and kicking myself cause I missed it. Now it's hard to find but maybe I'm lucky and win an auction for it.

  10. Mie nu mi se par scumpe. 5 dolari fata de o oja indie care costa vreo 10 si mai trebuie sa platesti si transport o gramada. La astea e gratis.
