I tried Indigo Paris for the first time this week--my first blue polish, btw. I was drawn to it b/c I am fond of royal blue. This is a dark royal blue and shimmery. I love it. It costs $18 (expensive but not highest) and is a LE product.
I have a brush issue, but that exists with all my polishes (Mavala is an exception), so I did not remove a lippie for that. Also it was thick and I had to thin the product. This is not unique to Lancome polishes as most I buy are too thick for ease of application, imo. I use SuperNail thinner. If you are a fan of blues, try this shade. I use Mavala ridge filler as a first coat. This protects the nail from staining as well as smoothing the ridges. After two coats I use Mavadry--something similar may work as well. This is a delightful color and has just the right amount of iridescence.
This LE line includes two other shades of polish: Golden Audacity (yellow/gold) and Rouge Liberty (bright red). There are also three LE quad e/s in the line. I would like to try the blue/natural shades but they appear to be mislabeled on the website. I think it will be obvious to a viewer.
Keep in mind if you use nail polish thinner, act quickly, use plenty of ventilation, seal everything tightly after, rinse any tools well, and wash your hands! Those fumes are potent and possibly risky to inhale.
Edit 1: Since this is my first review, perhaps someone can explain how to get the color discussed in the subject line. It was rejected when I attempted to do so.
I have this in minisizes - Silky Sand and Platinum. I love the colours, they both look great and classy, and the polish applies smoothly. The problem is that they fade away on tips the second day at the latest, and they keep chipping further on. So, considering the price, I will not repurchase.
I love the solid/creme colors. They stay well. However, the sheer/metalic ones are another sort as they chip or fade at the tips very easily.
I have two of these. The first time I used the polish it chipped almost as soon as it dryed, but I figured I would try again, and made sure my nails were clean and dry before application. Yay! it worked! No chipping and I just love the nice smell.
Could I ever find a good nail polish? I thought the little juicy vernis's were so cute I bought a small bulk of them.I like the way they look and they look cute on my beauty dresser.When it came down to using it I cant count the coats it took to make the color visable and after 20 minutes of drying the color's clumped up and came off grrrrrrrrrrr!!!
I had to wipe my nails clean and did a french manicure with clear nail polish.I gave it 2 lippy's because the GWP vernis glittery nail polish is a Good choice and when buying this recomended the only choice Go's on good alone or as a TopCoat.
I am a Lancome addict. So when I recieved this as a gift I was very excited. I have this in Alloy. I think the color is very fun and I have recieved lots of compliments on the color. I thought the quality was ok, but not special. I think the claims that it doesn't chip in five days are exaggerated because this chipped almost immediatley after it dried. I work in an office, and I was able to only get three days use out of it before the tips started to show because of the extensive typing I do during the day. For about $14 (US) per bottle this had better be amazing, like OPI. I don't think this even lives up to Rimmel which is less than $3 (US), or W'n'W which is less than $2 (US).
My favorite nailpolish in the whole wide world. The color compliments your skin and hands. I have it in platinum, but I'd love to try the others. It's not to thick nor thin, and the color is just amazing.
Great application. Great color. Too bad it just chipped off within the first 3 hours!
I alternate these with the Chanel ones, and I love them both. They are long lasting, dry fast and the colour selection is very nice.
Like OPI's Nail Envy, the price is ridiculous, but the formula is great, and Silky Sand is THE perfect shade for me. It looks nude, but it has that perfect amount of shimmer. It's not pearlescent, it's not glittery, it's something in between. It's like a lighter shade of Delux's Tijuana Taxi. The formula is such that you don't have to apply it as carefully as a cream (for even color).
