Etude House Sweet Recipe Collection ~ Ice Cream Nails Nail Polishes, Review and Swatches

Hello! So today is the last post of the products that I brought from the Sweet Recipe Collection by Etude House. If you are interested in my reviews of the other products, I'll link them at the end of this post for you to check out.

Today I am going to be reviewing the nail polishes from the collection, there are 4 in the collection to choose from.


The polishes are described as "glitter & stone infused pastel nail colours in yummy ice-cream cone designs".

 #1 Mint Chocolate (S$6.90 for 10mL) has a milky green base with pink square glitters, green, pink and red hexagonal glitters and small red hexagonal glitter.

This is two coats.

#2 Lemon Sherbet (S$6.90 for 10mL) has a milky lemon yellow base with green, red, pink and white hexagonal glitters, white squares, pink glitter, white glitter, white and yellow strands.

This  is two coats.

 #3 Apricot Candy (S$4.57 for 10mL) has a sheer apricot coloured base with pink, purple, red, orange and green hexagonal shiny glitters.

This is two coats.

#4 Strawberry (S$4.57 for 10mL) has a milky cotton candy base with silver and pink star glitters, blue, purple and grey hexagonal glitter, pink square glitters, small hexagonal pink glitters and silver micro glitters.

This is three coats.


The formula on each individual polish differs since they each have different amounts and textures of glitter particles. Lemon Sherbet is very rough to the touch and lumpy due to the long strands of glitter, but Apricot Candy is smooth to the touch due to just the one size of glitter.

When applied, Mint Chocolate, Lemon Sherbet and Strawberry act almost like a jelly sandwich (well a milky one) because when you apply the next coat, it covers up the intensity of the glitter from the first coat.

Apricot Candy  almost seems odd in this collection since it is the only sheer polish, the only polish with one kind of glitter and the only polish with shiny glitter. It did however have the best formula.

The other three polishes are very coarse to the touch so I would recommend a thick layer of top coat to counteract that, otherwise you might find the glitter particles catching on things.

The packaging is so adorable don't you think? I don't think I have ever seen a polish bottle so darn cute!

I think these polishes would be perfect for spring and summer, everybody loves pastel shades right? I know I do.


I purchased Mint Chocolate and Lemon Sherbet from an Etude House Store here in Singapore where they retail for S$6.90

I brought Strawberry and Apricot Candy from an on line store called KollectionK (international shipping), where they retail for S$4.57
