Skinfood Gunnpang Nail No. 2

3 Apr

On days when I go to the mall and that I have to at least buy something, I almost always get a new nail polish even though I still have a lot of new and unopened bottles. After walking around Siam Paragon and browsing the shops, I went to Skinfood and grabbed a few bottles of nail polishes and the Gunnpang Nail is one of them (when I got home I realised I already have a similar hot pink but the old one was not in matte).

Β The bottle bears a Skinfood sticker/ seal to prove authenticity.

A Brief Review:

First Impressions: It is small and cutely packaged, bottled in a clear matte glass. It bears the Skinfood sticker so the product is genuine. The label is written in Korean except for the nail polish’s name. There is also a sticker in Thai language (since I cannot read Thai, I’m not sure what it was. It might be details about the product, too).

One coat of Skinfood Gunnpang Nail No. 2

Colour: Matte hot pink

Smell: None

Consistency: It is thick, creamy and dries fast because it’s a matte nail polish. It tends to be streaky and messy to apply (or maybe it’s just me) but applying a matte top coat smoothens it out. One coat is enough but I applied two layers and a matte top coat from the same brand. There was a little shine to the nails when I applied the top coat, which is alright with me.

After two layers and a top coat

Price: THB120 (approximately US$4)

Availability: There are a lot of Skinfood shops in Bangkok alone. There might be other Skinfood branches in other parts of Thailand.

Will I purchase again?: I already got another bottle in matte brown.

I just applied hand cream in this picture so my nails don’t look too matte.

What do you think, do they look matte to you? Are you a fan of matte nail polishes? Care to share?

Cheers πŸ™‚

    Looks matte to me, in the photos they look only a tiny bit glossy, the flash maybe?
