Obsessed With Shyan Korean Nail Polish

Wanting to treat yourself to a spa manicure but don't want to burn your purse in the process? Why don't opt for home manicure? Not only it helps to beautify your nails at almost zero cost but you will also be able to 'zone out' for a moment; leaving all your worries and stress behind.

If you are someone like me, whom always want to save on money but still enjoy the little pleasures in life, then having a set of nail polish at home would do you more good than harm; if you are into 'painting' your nails that is.

But that's just painting your nails, what happened to the whole 'spa' experience? Patience, my love, where there's a will there's always a way.

There a few things I do before I get into the nail 'painting' session, which usually includes, scrubbing my palms with an organic scrub, then I will massage it with either an essential oil or a hand moisturizing cream that has a mild but calming scent...only then I would move on to shaping and buffering my nails just before I get into the 'painting' session.

Some of you might say that all of these items put together would cost even more than a single trip to the nail parlour. Yes! It probably will, but if you think of it in the long term, you will easily save your money. As there is no way that you can finish up 5 bottles of nails polish within a single manicure session, right? See my point.

Anyways, back in December I saw many beauty bloggers were showing off their monthly themed box from Althea which at that time were promoting the With Shyan nail polishes. And I just fell in love with the colours! 

Prior to watching all the amazing reviews, I already had owned one(Dusty Rose) With Shyan nail polish that came with another Althea themed box that I purchased earlier. So, I knew exactly how easy it was to apply.

But after seeing all the swatches, I was determined to add more colours to my collection, which led me to do a haul in January. Here are my favourite colours out of the bunch:

Before I show you my version of the swatches, allow me to share with you a few good points of the product.

The Good:

1) Easy to apply
2) Doesn't require a clear coating
3) It's pretty durable (I have gone for more than 2 weeks before it started chipping off)
4) The colours are amazing!

The Bad:

Althea doesn't sell it anymore! I have no idea why either. So, probably trying to find this nail polish online will get a little harder.

Oh well, I am just going to count my blessings that I bought them before they were discontinued from Althea. Overall, I spent RM70 ( RM14 each ) for my new With Shyan nail polish set. I would say that's a pretty good deal!

#1 Dusty Rose
