First Look: Dolce & Gabbana Summer in Italy Collection Nail Lacquers



Continuting on the theme of bright and colourful polish from yesterday’s post, as soon as I saw this quartet of bright shades from Dolce & Gabbana’s Summer in Italy Summer 2016 makeup collection, my eyes lit up! A beautiful array of creamy brights which looks right up my street for the coming season!

The nail polishes shades in this collection are definately inspired from the essence of Italian summers, the vibrant citrus tones and fruity brights transport us to a Mediterranean climate!

Even a month or two back when I saw initial press for this collection, the whole makeup range looked gorgeous  and called to me. Not to mention the packaging, it’s just so luxe and pretty. If I was a serious makeup collector I would be picking it up! I say this I am all about what’s inside the packaging, including these nail polishes!




I haven’t used any Dolce & Gabbana nail lacquers in the past to know the quality of the polish formula, but it is described as a high perfromance intense nail lacquer and from what I have read ahead of it’s official launch it does sound up to this standard. From initially look at the shades swatched, the formula looks fairly pigmented, thick and creamy and does give full coverage with 2 coats.

The nail polish brush is expertly designed ergonomic brush, using 470 bristles with a rounded cut, giving the user smooth and effortless application with minimal streaking. From early reviews describing the ease of application and it’s quality formula matches the product description well. These polishes are definitely worth a look!

From early reviews I have read on blogs before the official launch on the 1st of May, the formula sounds really good, although I am waiting to read a thorough review of the collection before I decide to pick up shades.

I found a selection of swatches online, below are 3 of Really Ree’s swatches! I really like these shades so far! Although I still would like to see these in person. If I find a swatch of the Lemon shade I will update this post.


Dolce and Gabbana Summer In Italy Swatches


I must admit on a first look of these shades, I really like them. I love the Orange and Turquoise shades especially, these would be favourites. I feel I still need to see these in person to make sure I don’t have dupes in my collection, lighting can really play havoc in photos and I like to see what they are like before ordering.
