Etude House Sweet Idea Bunny Nail Set in #5 Mint Golden Moon Bunny

Saturday, June 7, 2014

When I saw this new line of nail polish collection in Etude House, I just couldn't resist.  Aren't they just the cutest? I know I'm suppose to be a grown woman, but I just LOVE Etude House's packagings - especially this one. 

The black bunnies are bigger in real life than they appear in picture. Either they have smaller bunnies or a bigger nail. Also, the wand for the white nail polish is toothpick size (so that you can do the dots). If you want to paint your nails black or white, you'll have to buy those "colors" separately. 

The white bunnies are a little bit bigger in real life or the nail is bigger than the average finger nail. The applicator for the black is also a thin toothpick size brush. So if you want to paint your nails completely black or white, you'll have to buy those "colors" separately.

The applicator for the silver is a thin wand (like toothpick size) so you can draw on the line. I found the tester's wand to be a bit flimsy. The lilac shade has a regular brush.

The applicator for the gold is actually a thin wand (like toothpick size) so you can draw on your French Tip. I did find the texture of the gold polish to be a little bit thick. The red polish had a regular brush.

Retro green in real life is brighter than in this promo picture. It's more of a Tiffsny blue than the pastel mint shown. Review down below!

This set is from the Sweet Idea Bunny Nail Collection and there are five sets available. I got #5  Mint Golden Moon Bunny (민트 골든문 버니). All the sets come with two bottles that compliment one another. On the back is a little picture and some instructions on how to use it. For someone like me who is absolutely clueless and clumsy when it comes to nail art, this is an absolute gem. 

#5 Mint Golden Moon Bunny come with one bottle of a nice mint color called Retro Mint - think Tiffiny blue but a shade greener and another bottle Jewel Gold Pearl Powder of golden sparkles. The sparkles vary in size. Some are very fine and some are a bit bigger. The variation in sparkle size gives a nice realistic golden dust effect that shines just right in any lighting. At first I thought the sparkles came in a regular polish form, but then I realized they are actually loose. 

1.Thoroughly apply "Retro Mint" color  onto nail after base coat. 
2. Sprinkle "Jewel Gold Pearl Powder" onto areas you wish to emphasize. Shine lasts lnger if finished off by applying transparent top coat.

I would have to say that I need to give this set a big thumbs up. It was really easy to use even for a clutz like me. Retro Mint applied on superbly smooth. It dried pretty quickly. One coat was opaque enough for me. I used two in the picture. During this time, make sure you dust on the Jewel Gold Pearl Powder so that it can adhere to the wet polish because the powder is actually in a loose form. After that finish off with a top coat. I used Aritaum's Modi Top Coat. I've worn these nails for almost a week now, and just a tiny chip on my index finger! Usually I get chippings around my thumb and index finger easily but I have to say these wore relatively well. 

I love how simple and chic my nails look with this set. It makes it seem like I've put a lot of time and effort when I've actually just spent probably around 10 minutes. The lively mint cheers me up and refreshes me every time I look at it. This is especially needed as the the hot and humid weather of Seoul puts everyone in a depressive PMS mode. 

Note: I don't know if it's just my camera or if it's the lighting, but the polish comes off a little bit bluer in picture. It's actually a just a slight greener in real life.

The Good:
- really easy to use
- simple glammed up chic nails
- cheap
- colors really complement each other
- gold sparkles are amazing!

The Bad:
- I don't know where I can get a refill of Jewel Gold Pearl Powder - if anyone at Etude knows, let me know.  I didn't see it in their nail art section.
- The bottles are only 4ml each! 
- loose sparkles can get messy.


  1. That looks so pretty and the bottle are super cute too!

  2. Etude house nail polish has been hit and miss for me. But the little sets look nice.

    BTW I sent a PM, can you please check it?

    1. I know what you mean. I think the formula has changed for the new play nail polishes because they do glide on much better and stay on much longer compared to the older version. I still like Aritaum's Modi Polishes the best though :)

  3. The cutest nail polishes, makes me want to
    buy them all. The mint color is gorgeous
    and fitting for summer. :)
