The Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nail Set comes in 6 sets of colours, in which #3 Love Violet is the most popular i guess, given that its sold out on Etude house's korean home page (the last i checked) and has the lowest in-stock quantity in the seller's option list.
Bought the Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nail Set in #3 Love Violet, #5 Princess Marry and #6 Angel's Kiss, at Qoo10 which was previously known as Gmarket from Pretty Shop (seller).
The parcel came after like 7 days, pretty fast given that they were shipped from korea. Pretty Shop was generous with gift samples, probably cause i bought 3 gradient nail sets though -.- .
Just this noon i went to Shine Korea Supermarket at Marina Square, and passed an Etude House outlet at City Hall MRT, popped in and they finally had the Juicy Cocktail set! Just the Angel's Kiss only though. Lol went ahead and asked the SA for price... guess what...$15.90!! *eye roll....could have bought like 3 sets of Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nail online with that money!!
Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nail sets and samples galore~!!! God i love samples >.<
Sorry about the poor quality photos, will work on getting a decent camera in future ^^.
Love Violet is exactly like its name, lovely shade of violet that looked chic yet sophisticated, its not difficult to see why it is so popular among the other colours. Below is the best Love Violet i've seen done by Pretty Shop's customer. She did state that multiple layering of each colour were required to achieve this effect. Fret not, other reviews did state that the nail polishes were fast-drying, i guess patience and practice is all you need.
Check out my review
Princess Marry is a gradient of gold hues and sparkles, kinda like dipping the tips of your finger into gold glitters. Great colour to match with black or for Chinese Lunar New Year for luck (*ahem Mahjong). I guess this colour will give a 'atas' feel to your hand as the glitter pieces for Princess Marry is much larger than that in Love Violet. Below is the best Princess Marry done by Pretty Shop's customer, unlike Love Violet, one coat was all it needed to get this desired look.

Note to be taken:
That's all for this post, thanks for reading! Will be doing another post and try out Angel's Kiss some time later cause my nails are stubby now and realized that there are not much detailed review done on Angel's Kiss yet.
See ya ^^
