A lovely lust worthy polish collection, the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Spring 2016 Nail Polish Collection is an array of polishes to behold!
If you saw my V Day Gifts for Polish Lovers post, you might have seen I featured this collection. I would love to receive this as a gift myself, a perfect option for a Valentines gift. In fact, I adore this makeup collection as it’s very collectable. I had seen press before the release of this collection and in person, it surpassed my preconceptions. It’s that lovely!
Altogether there are 9 shades in total, a mix of crème’s and shimmers to update your polish wardrobe this Spring.
I have read these Guerlain Deliciously Shiny Nail Colour polishes will be replacing the Guerlain La Lacquer polishes. So if you are fan of this range or specific shades, pick them up sharpish before they go!
Guerlain has created a fragranced polish, which is extremely shiny, feminine and exudes style. The last time I used a fragranced nail polish was many moons ago, it did work and gave off a scent but faded with time. I also noted the Revlon polish I tried didn’t have the greatest formula.
However this Guerlain polish formula looks like a much more higher quality product and up to the task!
The packaging!!! I hate to be so shallow, it is so beautiful! As soon as I saw these hit counters I couldn’t help myself and had to check them out!
The polish bottle looks like their La Petite Robe Noire miniature perfume bottles, with it’s lid in the shape of the famous upside-down heart.
For ease of application, the heart shaped cap can be removed and the polish has a flat brush allowing optimal, easy and precise colour application.
The polish formula is an ultra-shiny affair, the shades have been updated with a new technology of pigments and plasticizers. The polish formula contains a specific resin that guarantees the film’s elasticity and suppleness, giving excellent wear time and polish performance. This formula will need to measure up to these statements!
The polish also offers a delicate floral fruity fragrance with accents of bergamot, rose and raspberry, inspired by the delicious notes of La Petite Robe Noire. I have Guerlains La Petite Robe Noire perfume and I can testify the polishes offer a similar scent. Also by applying a layer of top coat, the scent comes back to life after initial application.
Onto the shades!!
001 My 1st Nail Polish – a sheer pink base with tiny glitter particles
002 Pink Tie – a hot pink magenta crème
003 Red Heels – a cheerful poppy red crème and ‘the red’ in this collection
007 Black Perfecto – a blackened plum crème with hidden gold shimmer shot through it
010 Apri-Coat – a light apricot crème
042 Fire-Bow – an orange toned red crème
060 Rose Ribbon – a peachy pink crème
061 Pink Ballerina’s – a pale baby pink crème
063 Pink Button – a warm bright pink crème
My favourites from the collection are Black Perfecto, Red Heels, Pink Button and Fire Bow! These are all the bold and beautiful shades and I don’t think they disappoint!
I do hope Guerlain add to this collection and extend into different colour directions. I would love some glossy blues and greens! But this La Petite Robe Noire Polish collection overall get’s a thumbs up from me!
If you love the La Petite Robe Noire perfumes, you will love these scented polishes and you should consider adding them into your collection.
