Nail Polish: The Face Shop Nail GR509

TheFaceShop nail colors had finally landed in my stash. Yahoo!

I've seen a fellow blogger blogged about her FS nail polish finds months back and I swore to have one. But because I don't have extra for my "luho" a.k.a passion, I put it aside for a while. Last week, I decided finally after months of thinking that I needed new colors, new brand in my stash. I took a peek at Faceshop in Centrio Mall, and these are what filled my hungry eyes.. charrran! on the rack are nail colors from striking red, bright neon to pastel colors.

I definitely want them all, but sadly I can only afford up to 2 (per visit hehehe).Without further ado! I chose...



Lovely Me: Yogurt Apple and a nude color. I'm not really sure what's the true color code of this one. The sticker on the bottle is BR804 while on the receipt it's GR509. After researching I must say its GR509 because the BR804 is of different color based on the swatches I've seen online. 

I wanted to try the Apple Yogurt on my nails first but the nude color "tan" prevailed because I'll be attending a meeting the following day and it's the most appropriate. Mahirap na at ang mga kuko ko ang mapansin hehehe  

So... here goes.. 

A perfectly nude color for a cheaper price compared to US and European brand sold at P95.00 ($2) each. 

 
With just two coats you'll get full tan opacity, but since I wanted it heavy, I applied three coats on my nails. The formula is just perfect, you can spread in on the nails without difficulty. The color may appear lighter on the above photos because of the camera flash.

The next batch of photos (below) were taken the following day at the office just before we took off for the meeting outside. This time taken with flash off, just lighted florescent lamps at the ceiling. 

 
And the color is most accurate compared to the actual. And always is the perfect color in the corporate world or even for the summer.. :-)

 Next time it will the Apple Yogurt.. so watch out for it..

  1. Oh!!!! I love looking at those korean nail polishes. too bad that when you buy here in the Philippines, there are no freebies unlike in Seoul. I remembered that I hoarded alot from Natural Republic a long time ago. I love the natural color, btw.
