NOTD: Etoile Winter in Central Park Collection (3 pc set)

Posted on: May 1, 2013

Asscher from etoile Nail Polish, this is from a 3 piece set called “Winter in Central Park”. I bought this set from Haute Look for $24.50. Which is a deal because on their website they sell for $18 a bottle. Please don’t pay $18 for a bottle of this polish. I am kicking myself and needin a good slap on the back of my head for paying $24.50 for the set of 3. 👿
Have I given it away that I do not care for this polish? Let me tell you why I don’t care for it, first of all the price $18 for a .475 oz bottle is too much. Their claim to fame is all the polish is infused with real diamond dust for an incredible sparkle. Really? Let’s see, you tell me if you see an incredible sparkle:

This picture was outside in the not so bright sun, still no sparkle. Also, I forgot to mention I first used Nail Envy, like always, then 2 coats of Sally Hansen CSM Pink Slip which covered the nail line then I did 3 coats of the Asscher (as in the diamond cut). I don’t think I was asking too much for a bit of sparkle from their diamond infused polish. Maybe my expectations are too high. Anyway, just for fun, I tried some nail art with the other colors:

In all honesty the Frosted Berry, the red one had a bit of sparkle. Just a bit, as did Reservoir the blue one.
The other thing I did not lke about this polish is it took forever to dry, I was all day painting the Asscher, the red one stained my nail after being on for about 30 seconds and they all are thick, gloppy formulas. I usually don’t have to do much clean up any more when painting my nails. I’ve had so much practice at it, but I do keep an angled eye brush handy while painting, just in case and I needed it today for all 3 of the colors.
Maybe it’s the mood I’m in but I give etoile nail polish infused with real diamond dust for an incredible shine 0/5 stars. The shining of zero stars is about the same amount of shining these polishes do. Okay, I know that was a bad sentence but you know what I meant.

This is a cute little box o’ polish and I thought a good buy. I still love Haute Look ya can’t win em all!

I’m going to paint my nails with another diamond infused. Let’s hope this one goes better than the etoile, infused with real diamond dust.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
