Review: Etude House Look At My Nails Maple Syrup

14. October 2013
Here is another nail polish from Etude House, but this time it is not a matte nail polish like in my last review about Etude House’s Petit Darling Nails Matte Nail Polish (review here). This time it is a jelly type nail polish called Etude House Look At My Nails Maple Syrup from Etude House spring collection this year. There are five shades available, all shades are in the pink and beige color range.

The shade Maple Syrup is a dusky pink shade which comes in a glass bottle decorated with some swirls and ornaments. You can find the words “look at” written on the bottle as well. I like the design of the bottle. It is not something special, but girly in its own way.

The nail polish brush is not very broad and not really long. Nevertheless, I had no problems in applying the nail polish. The polish itself is rather on the runny side, so you have to be a bit carefull about the amount of nail polish on the brush.
An opaque color can be achieved on the nails with two coats. Three would even be better, but I’m not patient enough for waiting so long for each layer to dry, especially, because these jelly type nail polishes need longer anyway. Below you can see an image of my nails with two coats. This nail polish really has a nice glossy effect (click to enlarge). The color looks like the color inside the bottle.

All in all I love this nail polish. I was on the hunt for a pink shade like this. Also, I like the jelly/glossy effect. I should have ordered more shades of this last time (I ordered this one at Keautystore, but they don’t have it anymore). You can get this from for example, for around 1500 Won, which is around US$ 1.50. Shipping depends on the weight. There is also a new range available, but I don’t know if they are of the same consistency. They are called “Look At My Natural Nails” and I saw these on W2Beauty.

    I love this color too! “Maple syrup” is sort of a weird name though, since it doesn’t look anything like maple syrup. :P

    • Fräulein Schnee 16. October 2013 at 12:33

      Haha, I agree, I think they just needed some sweet names :D

    • Fräulein Schnee 16. October 2013 at 12:30

      I didn’t recognize much difference from other german drugstore brands. What nailpolish do you love and use?

      I only own two Etude House Nailpolishes, the other ones I own ae western brand and mostly drugstore brands. But Etude House has always a nice packaging, that’s why I get temped from time to time XD
