Kose Esprique Precious Nail Color BE311 and PK813

Posted on: February 10, 2010

 Kose EP nail colors BEPK 

I haven’t purchased any nail polish for a long time. Since I played with my mom’s nail polish in the childhood, I always wear natural-looking pink tone, or just a base coat for glowing nail appearance.   

  

Kose EP nail colors BEPK-1 

Drugstore nail polish disappointed me lots in the past, especially they don’t even lasting, within 1 week flaked off unsightly. That explains why I didn’t even bother about nail polish in recent years. For me, most importantly is to keep the nail clean and short. Unexpectedly, with a mood to spend, the elegant sleek packaging of Kose Esprique Precious Nail Color shocked me at the first sight. After 2 weeks testing their base&top coat and found the coating was remained as if  it was freshly applied, I bought the nail colors.

Best of all, they are fragrance-free and also contain moisturizing substances. Because all the available shades are shimmering, being  less adventurous for nail color, I picked BE311 and PK813. Looking at their finish, they are very close to be identical. The beige shade is reflecting golden tone, whereby the pink shade is pinkish with hint of gold. 

 

The nail polish dries out rather quickly, basically it stays in good condition for at least a week eventhough without base&top coat. Not to say my hands are heavily-loaded. Anyhow I normally wipe it off periodically in order to allow my nails breathe freely. 

  

day 

I never went for manicure, so my fingers are little funny. Anyway, as you have seen from above picture, the shimmers are not really intense and shining with sun light . But… 

  

night 

At night, there are very capable to grab attention with the bling-bling appearance. Would you be able to tell the difference here? The top two fingers are coated with PK813 and the other two are topped with BE311, all done without base&top coat and only applied a sheer layer. They looked different tone under different angle of lighting… 

   

 

The retail price of each Kose Esprique Precious nail colors is THB 330/8ml in Thailand, quite reasonable for the quality I think.
