After the successful launch of the new Lancôme Rouge in Love lip colour collection in 2012 (my review on the shade Corail in Love 322M here), Lancôme introduced their new range of Lancôme Vernis in Love nail lacquers shortly thereafter. I've always overlooked the range of nail lacquers at Lancôme counters as I've always been mesmerised about their colour and foundation makeup products. Anyway, when I was at the Lancôme counter the other day I was quite shocked to learn that a full size bottle of Lancôme Vernis in Love retails for A$29/6ml! Despite the small volume of product and high price, I decided to to make the jump into buying this luxury nail lacquer... and I have not looked back!
|Lancôme Vernis in Love nail lacquer in Rose The 350M|
I purchased the Lancôme Vernis in Love nail lacquer in the shade Rose The 350M (the name of the shade kinda made me more inclined to pick this shade out ^_^). The letter 'M' denotes that this shade is part of the Jolis Matins category or mood which means that the shades in this category are 'fresh shades for daytime wear'. Rose The is a warm brownish pink which is a great shade to wear during the cooler months, especially during autumn. I believe the warmth of this shade is suitable for all skin tones.
The formula of Lancôme Vernis in Love is quite decent in consistency, very creamy in texture and surprisingly yields an almost opaque finish after the first coat. Two coats will hands down provide your nails an intense and extremely pigmented look with a highly glossy finish. I was really astounded by the pigmentation of this formula as I have not used any nail lacquers in the past which provide such a high level of opacity after one coat. The applicator brush is also unique as it is flat and quite rounded at the tip so that you could distribute uniform colour across the nail bed. I found that the shape of this brush applicator made it extremely easy for achieve a perfect manicure.
I'm very satisfied with the formula of Lancôme Vernis in Love and the shade Rose The is no way near close to any of the pink and red shades in my nail lacquer collection. A bottle of Lancôme Vernis in Love is quite dear, however, it's the quality of the formula that counts for me. Two full coats lasted on my nails for 3 days without any signs of chipping, so another bonus point there!
