Adorned Nails: TheFaceShop PK103


It's spring and with it, comes pastel shades. I thought I'd welcome spring with a predictable sweet pink from yet another South Korean brand, TheFaceShop. Thank you, Danielle, for sending me this.


TheFaceShop's naming convention for its nail polishes is typical of cosmetics brands from the Far East: an abbreviation of the colour followed by digits. TheFaceShop Nail Color PK103 is a sheer baby pink polish with fine shimmers. Application was trouble-free and I have three coats on here. I left it at that despite the visible nail line as I was planning to do stamping anyway.



It's the Konad M66 plate again. I've been waiting for a long time to use the beautiful cherry blossom design.




I feel like I'm wearing Barbie's wallpaper, which is ironic.

I don't even like Barbie.

You dont like Barbie.. but surely it does look great on your nails! :) I have this love-hate relationship with The Face Shop polishes I must say. Some takes half of forever to stay, but some is just blah..

thanks for this idea,makes me want to try Barbie too. :)

Thank you! :)

Thanks, Paulina! It's a typical choice for the start of the season. With cherry blossoms in spring, it couldn't be anything but pink and white. :D

@Karla Michelle
Haha! I do like the end result! I guess I'm just not too used to seeing such sweet colours on my nails. This is my first time with a TheFaceShop polish, so thanks for sharing your own experiences with them. Have fun trying Barbie('s wallpaper)! :D

I love cherry blossom, the trees are so beautiful. Pity it doesn't last longer.

I like your spring design. "KTee"xx

The baby pink is adorable..& the shimmer is just about right in adding to its charm. Love the floral art you've added on it. Pretty perfect for spring/summer!

Michelle said...

YAY!! I love that I can actually go out and buy this polish! :)) Great nail look! :) I love the stamp!

But I think The Face Shop polishes are notorious for chipping. :)

Cheryl said...

Wow that's such a sweet combination! I love this colour, I might have the same polish too!

I like the design and baby pink is perfect for spring =)

@KTee
Thanks, my dear! Cherry blossoms are indeed beautiful and I suppose it is precisely because they last for only a short time that we cherish them even more. :)

@Raey
Hey, thanks, Raey. The shimmer's very subtle but the pink ends up looking quite like a crème underneath all that stamping. :)

@Michelle
Thank you, Michelle! Oh, yes, you should be able to get this there! Thanks for the warning about the easy chipping. I do see the first sign of it on one nail now. :)

@Cheryl
Thanks so much, Cheryl! :)

@BlackCherry
Thank you, BlackCherry! Wearing this really gets me in the spring mood. :)
