From Lise Watier’s Holiday collection this past Christmas, here is ‘Violet Dore.’ Check it out (both pics are natural light, with Seche Vite top coat):
It’s sort of a cross between Zoya’s ‘Dannii’ from their Spring 2011 Intimates collection, and ‘Faye’ from their Summer 2011 Sunshine collection. More demure than ‘Dannii’ and more purple than ‘Faye.’ This polish has exactly the same type of sparkle the Zoya has become known for. Which, unfortunately, I am so tired of! I know that it sparkles so beautifully in the sun, but right now I’m on a subtle shimmer/creme kick and I can’t seem to get out of it. Or maybe I just haven’t found the right shade.
In any case, this is a nice polish, goes on without a hitch in nice, thin layers (this is three coats but you could do two), and is pretty but just not for me. And, while we’re making comparisons with Zoya, this polish was $14 CDN and Zoya’s are $10-11CDN. And the sizing is 0.41 oz compared to Zoya’s 0.5 oz. AND this polish was LE for Christmas, so you’d have to hunt for it to get it. So all around, I’d say go for one of Zoya’s sparklers to save money and hassle. I just thought I’d post it because it’s what I’m wearing this week
What do you think of this polish? And how are you feeling about the super sparkly polishes in general right now, loving or hating??
Thanks for reading!!
