Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Set #3- Love Violet
I did a review on Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Set #4- Mint Frappe the previous time, and now will be doing the same for #3- Love Violet. I know i posted a picture of #3 Love Violet done by another Qoo10 consumer, but decided it would be better if i do one myself too.
How the #3 - Love Violet turned out (under room light)
To get the above displayed gradation effect, i used 2 coat of base color, 3-4 coats of the middle color (you really need to apply lots of it), and around 2-3 coats of the last color, topping it off with 2 coats of top coat. Felt that i fared better in #3 -Love Violet than #4 - Mint Frappe and #6 - Angel's Kiss, the gradation effect is more prominent here than the other two. *sigh....will have to practice more....
As you guys would have notice that #3 - Love Violet do not have glitter pieces at the last color, unlike #4 - Mint Frappe and #6- Angel's Kiss. This made application a breeze, however the easy application seemed to be compensated by slower nail drying. Took me longer then usual to get my nails dried completely, even had to use the cold water method as last resort. So, with a little patience, your nails should turn out fine ^^...

Shimmers really shines! (surprisingly....this was taken away from room light)
The shimmers in the middle coat does not seem to reflect under light, but away from light, suitable for subtle glamour. More pictures coming up...
The purple really stands out against green ^^
Side view of the nails...hoping to catch the reflection of the shimmers
Hope this post helps, and thanks for reading!!
