Cool Cats from Korea

I originally saw Peripera polishes on The Edge of Sanity (how wonderful are Gab’s nails?!) and I was immediately smitten by the rich greens and gorgeous cat shaped brush handles. The Edge of Sanity is great, because Gabrielle tends to post a lot of asian polishes. Great for my ever expanding collection that is, but not so hot for my wallet.

Peripera

Look at them! You can clearly see why I couldn’t resist this purchases. I’m a big fan of an attractive looking bottle and these kittens take that title for sure. Peripera polishes are from Korea, and as far as I know they don’t have proper names, just numbers. I could be wrong, but I don’t read Korean. It turns out that the names are actually listed in the eBay auction below… Let’s just say I won’t be winning any prizes for most observant blogger anytime soon. Thank you to Liz from Liquid Jelly for letting me know! From L to R we have Crystal Khaki (awesome), Smoky Khaki (awesomer) and Metallic Green (awesomest)! Please refrain from drooling and shorting out your keyboard.

Peripera P017 Crystal Khaki

Crystal Khaki makes me think of cartoon money. I have absolutely no idea why.

Does anyone else get the Scrooge McDuck vibe from this colour or am I completely insane? Really, I’m fine with either. I did only one coat of Crystal Khaki aka Scrooge McDuck in the above photo, but looking closer at my swatch it probably needed two… but only just. I was that convinced of the one coat coverage in natural light that I skipped the second – that’s what I call quality polish. Crystal Khaki is a gorgeous mid green shimmer packed with gold shimmer throughout. It’s foily, but not quite a foil. It’s also breathtaking.

Peripera P028 Smoky Khaki

Smoky Khaki is slinky and sleek. It’s mostly a dark, forest green creme but there’s a ton of shimmer packed in there too. I love polishes like this. They could have just made the polish a shimmer or a creme, but instead it sit’s somewhere in the middle. Looking fabulous. This is one coat. And I’m in love.

Peripera P027 Metallic Green

Metallic Green might look a tad familiar. I’m not disappointed at all because now I have a backup in another awesomely shaped bottle. When my Peripera’s first arrived I was convinced that Metallic Green was bluer than Missha HGR01, but on the nail this is not the case. There’s more blue visible in the bottle simply due to the curvature of the design. This was one, fabulous foily coat and I’m just as thrilled with the colour now as I was when I first gushed about the Missha version.

Peripera P027

Here it is from another angle to bring out the blue. If you don’t own this, I’m telling you – you need it. NEED. Drop everything and go buy it right now!

Like I mentioned earlier, Peripera is a Korean based brand like Missha and Skinfood, and like Missha polishes they also have enormous, thick brushes and a rose scent. I purchased mine on eBay from this seller for $9.49 USD with free shipping. My items were packed well and arrived quickly. Looks like the also have a crackle line now too!

    Cute!  I’ve never seen those before but those bottles are too cute to pass up!  If you post pics of the bottom label, I can tell you the names if they’re written there. 🙂

    • Kaz

      Thanks Liz! I’ll have to check the bottles to see if they have any labels when I get home!

      • Liz

        Actually, the names are listed in the ebay link you gave us.  If you scroll half way down it says the names in English under available colors.  🙂

    ZOMG! Kitties + polish? What super-villain marketing person thought this up? Awesome!

    • Kaz

      Gurl I think you need to get out your tinfoil hat. The government is stealing your brain waves!

  • Squee! Those are so awesome!

    • Kaz

      I know! I really have to hold myself back from buying a whole bunch!

  • The kitties don’t make it hard to apply at all?

    • Kaz

      I didn’t think so. The contoured handle actually made it a little easier to grip.

  • Kitties

    Ok, I am getting Metallic Green NOW.  I was umming and arring about Missha HGR01, but with a kitty bottle I can’t resist.

    • Kaz

      Yay! You won’t regret it. It’s amazing!

    What fantastic bottles!! I know what I’m getting as soon as I’m off “No buy” 😀

    • Kaz

      You and me both! I think I need some more!

  • I bought Metallic Green just now, lol. Thanks for showing us these pretties! ?

    • Kaz

      No problem! Happy to share and enable!

  • There’s something about these Korean polishes that have a similarity to each other. The last one definitely reminds me of the Missha one you featured before. Stunning shades!

    • Kaz

      Definitely the same! Maybe they are bottled at the same place like Chemistry and Ozotics? Who knows?

  • Kaz

    Thanks! They are very fun indeed, not to mention cute!

  • Kaz

    Gorgeous huh?

  • Lucy

    When I read your comment about the drool I immediately threw a towel on my keyboard.  I needed it.  Damn how sweet those bottles are.  Inside is even better.  Oh where is the one huge polish place with every brand available to buy online?

    • Kaz

      LOL It’s called eBay 😀
