Review: Etude House Ice Cream Nails #PP501 Blueberry

Hello! ~
When Etude House released their Sweet Recipe products I LOVED the design of their Ice Cream nails, but was not too thrilled about the colors available. ( I still did order one, though it never arrived.) When I saw that they had released more colors I was super excited and had to get some at once. The first one to arrive, which I will review for you today, is the Etude House Ice Cream Nails nail color in #PP501 Blueberry.

The Etude House Ice Cream Nails come in the most adorable 10ml bottles designed to look like ice cones. I insist that there is no cuter nail color design out there! There are 8 different shades available in addition to the 4 from the Sweet recipe line.

If you have seen the official product photos of this, then you will know that it looked like a purple/lavender color. In fact it looked pretty much like the Etude House Lucy Darling Fantastic Nails in Lavender Purple, just without the shimmer. I was hesitant about getting this shade, because I thought I already had like 5 nail colors with exactly the same color. The more pleased I was when it arrived here and I saw that it looked completely different than on the product photos! Not so great when you actually want a color looking exactly like this, but awesome for me!
#PP501 Blueberry is a very very milky color, a super light pastel lavender shade. It looks not like blueberries, but like blueberry ice cream and I am loving it.

Sadly I find the nail color a bit hard to apply, but I am not painting my nails very often, so I am not really good with it to begin with. The texture is kind of creamy and you have to be careful not to get streaks or areas where the color is too sheer. But if you pay some attention, you can get a full coverage with just one layer. The nail color  dries really fast in my opinion and has a lasting power that is above average. I am wearing this nail color for the 3rd day today, without any base- or topcoat, and there isn't as much as a single scratch in it.

I am really in love with this shade, it meets my taste 100% and I don't regret getting this at all. Just have to practice a bit applying it. 


  1. What a pretty colour! I own one of the Sweet Recipe nailpolishes and I'm very satisfied with the quality of the nailpolish as well, it's really good :3

  2. Too bad the product isn't all that great because the packaging is so cute! Thanks for the review doll : ) xx

  3. Yes, I saw your review! I love these nail colors. I wish they would come in even more shades!

  4. I thought the colour wasn't what was advertised and that it was tricky to apply, so to me that's not "great" even though you ended up liking it anyway : ) xx

  5. I think the admin of this web site is actually working hard
    for his web site, for the reason that here every information is quality based information.

    Here is my weblog visit the up coming site

  6. aw it's looks so cute >.< also the color is looks so sweet ^^
    Thanks for reviewing ^^


  7. I can't say that I like how the polish look but I sure do love the adorable packaging.

  8. I'm a sucker for soft and dream-like pastel colour like this =~=
    Btw, have you tried Japanese nail polish?

  9. Yes, I bought a few. Majolica Majorca ones, Love Nail and Sweet Closetet, I think. They are all okay, the Sweet Closet one has a sheer coverage for some shades.

  10. It's gorgeous. I have the mint glitter one. I just ordered one of the solid colors xx

  11. i don't usually like lilac shades, but this one looks really pretty!^^

  12. This color is so pretty, and I would definitely wear it too, so cute
