Why? Ya, I’m love all the wine shades this fall (and what seems like every fall…), but in terms of removal, I can’t just swipe it off and go. We all know the “I just killed someone” residue of red-toned polishes. And since I can’t have my nails done at work, I need a polish that’s easy-come-easy-go. Which leads me to the fabulous brush. It’s one of those not-too-flimsy, wider brushes that just seems to coat the nail faster and easier.
Now for the colour. It literally looks like a dull black in the bottle. I was completely fooled by it’s seemingly boring colour. Because it’s a completely not boring colour. When I wore it, I noticed that in some lighting it had a burgundy hue, then in different light it looked a bit like a really dark emerald shade and then sometimes it even had a blueish sheen. I mean how cool is that?! And to top it off, it’s thick formula lasts exceptionally long and dries exceptionally quickly. It’s now my go-to varnish for autumn, because it goes with everything and it’s such great quality. How’s that for a plain ol’ black?
Quite honestly, I’ve probably worn nail polish about 3 times in the past two months. And with my super-short nails and my tiny hands, it’s kind of a necessity. But with work and really just a lack of time, I haven’t really been able to polish those suckers. Not too long ago we were sent this apparently black lacquer from Lancôme, and truthfully, I kind of overlooked it. I mean, it’s just black (the actual shade is Grey Lumière but we can all agree, it’s black). Little did I know that it would become one of my favourites for the season.
