Castledew is a pretty extensive Korean brand offered by VOV Cosmetics company (the same company that produces the It Girls line). I purchased these from Gmarket, as I do most of my Korean polishes. As a side note about Gmarket, I love that most of the vendors provide not only company promo pics but also of swatches with the polish actually on the nails. Makes it so much easier to make purchase decisions for polishes you’ll never see in person until you actually buy them.
I was super excited to get these bottles of Castledew polishes because there are some humdingers in this series. But let’s start off with the more mainstream, shall we?
Doll’s Pink Pearl is a metallic-y pink that’s not quite a foil but does a really good impression of one. I’ve noticed that this type finish is quite popular among the Asian brands (and thank goodness we have better access to them now!). Berry Shake, my favorite of these four, is laden with shimmer, predominantly silver with a little bit of gold and purple. There is something about this level of shimmer that makes this color look so appealling, despite it’s very mainstream base color.
Pops Key Gold is similar to the Doll’s Pink Pearl finish, only in Gold. Again, beautiful finish with a mainstream color. Galaxy Gold is a pretty blinged out gold glitter that went on beautifully. All were two easy coats.
