Hello lovelies, having a good day so far? I've decided to add a new segment to my blog - Minute Beauty.
Quick updates on my current favorite beauty items and brief reviews!

Let's start with something festive that I've been loving this past year! A nail varnish by Innisfree, Eco Nail Color BASIC line, in the shade 48 Vanilla Gold (바닐라 골드)


Isn't it b-e-a-utiful? I've had this color for a little less than a year, and adore it to bits! Yet I never had the motivation (read - legitimate excuse) to paint all nails - usually I'd use it on my ring finger as an accent.
However, since it is finally Holiday season - time to bust out the glitter! Here you see 2 layers of the Eco Nail Color BASIC varnish in 48 Vanilla Gold, plus a top coat of a random clear varnish with gold glitter (not that obvious in person).

The color goes on really smoothly, and you can chose to either wear it rather sheer - 1 coat will give you a lovely, white-ish gold sheen. Or apply 2-3 coats for its full glory! Haven't had any problems with streaking so far, the brush is nicely flexible, and just the right size - I dislike really wide brushes, it's a disaster waiting to happen...
Sadly, pictures don't do this varnish justice, in person it creates a stunning gold foil allusion, perfect for a glamorous night out, or a New Years eve party! 
The varnish dries very quickly - first coat will be dry by the time you're done painting all nails! It holds pretty well too. On me, most nail varnishes chip within 2-3 days, whether I use a base/top coat or no. This one, on its own, holds for good 3-4 days! Definitely impressive.
Plus, it is relatively cheap (2500KRW/2USD), for it's quality, I'd say it's an absolute steal!

You can get it on Ebay (not affiliated with the seller) for 4.89USD (free shipping), which is still a great deal!
Check out other colors as well, Innisfree Eco Nail Color is a great line of varnishes.

That's it for the first installment of Minute Beauty, new ones will probably be up every other day! Subscribe for more *wink*. Have you tried Innisfree nail varnishes? Impressed? Not so much? Leave a comment!

XoXo,
