My Experience with Innisfree 9, 187 and Top Coat:

Nail Paint 9:
The nail paint comes in a small glass bottle with a white cap. The label on the cap has all the details printed on it. The color is a pretty pastel pink shade. It has a glossy formulation. It is not too thick, nor too thin. The brush is slightly thin compared to other brands.

The pigmentation in the bottle seems very good, but on application, it is quite translucent. I had to put three layers of this nail paint to get an opaque finish. Additionally, the thin brush makes the application quite streaky. It takes a while to completely dry down, and sufficient time needs to be given for drying in between coats. Denting and chipping occurs quite easily with this nail paint.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Innisfree Nail Paint 9?
I would not buy this as it is expensive for the amount of nail paint provided. Also, it didn’t fair too well for me. I would recommend this to people who like pastel shades, as Innisfree has a huge collection of them.

Nail Paint 187:
The packaging and formulation is virtually the same as the previous nail paint (#9). The color is a very pale shade of blue. I like the unusual color. The pigmentation is not good and it also applies streaky. Even after three coats, the colour was not opaque. Overall, I am not satisfied with both the nail paints. The pros and cons remain the same.

Would I Repurchase Innisfree Nail Paint 187?
This color is quite unique, and will suit fair skinned people. However, I would not buy this, but rather try the nail paints that are more pigmented.

Innisfree Nail Top Coat:
It has the same packaging as the other two nail products. The nail top coat is transparent, just like any other top coat from another brand. I found nothing extraordinary about this product. Rather than providing beneficial features, this top coat actually drags away the colour beneath, no matter how long the colour underneath has dried. Even after carefully applying this, it does not dry down completely. It is prone to dents and chipping. I have used better nail top coats from other brands.
