I was supper excited to try out the Le Vernis Nail Polish in two colours from Givenchy Beauty for this season. I spotted these nail polish formulas at the Givenchy counter at one of my visits at Sephora recently, after trying out the formula and swatching them on my nails I was amazed with the nice and glossy look and mirror like effect finish of it immediately. The colours are fairly simple and apply flawlessly offering a nice clean polished look. I received:
- N°07 Grenat Initie – is a vibrant red. It has a slightly warmer tone and not too orangey. Below I have it applied with three coats.
- N°02 Beige Mousseline – is a nude pink with slight warmth to it. This also carries a bit of beige and peach into it. Below I have applied it in two coats.
Both colours are beautiful and classic. Lasting power has been very good for me and to be honest I had never experienced some thing like this before. It stayed up to 6 days with no chipping (without extra work). The formula is supper light which makes it super easy to layer or I should say it dries up very fast for layering and while layering it doesn’t look thick. Two coats were good enough to get a true colour of the polishes but I found with third coat you get a sleek finish and strike free with true colour. These have a thin jelly like texture but with pigment. It comes in a 4G logo engraved on the leather like black top caps along with the transparent glass bottle.
Bottom line I loved these beautiful nail polishes from Givenchy in terms of high quality, performance and staying power. Both shades are beautiful and versatile. There are not a huge rage of colours but they carry a great range staple colours. you can shop Le Vernis Nail Polish at all department stores as well as online at Barneys.com.
