Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Holiday Collection: nail color & special nail stickers Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura collection includes three nail colors ($20 each), and each comes with a strip of nail stickers. These nail polishes in glittery black, beige and red tie in well with mon shu’s colouring. Wanna hear about them? Then let’s start right meow!

karl black is a black base with fine olive gold and silver glitter. I like how this one applied; it was smooth and had no issues with streakiness. I’m showing it below in two coats. The finish is not super shiny so I’d still wear a shiny topcoat with this, personally. It just feels a little bit gritty to the touch because of the fine glitter.

royal beige is a midtone beige with very subtle gold shimmer that is barely detectable on the nails. On me, it is the perfect beige nude nail colour. However, the formula is awful; it is really thick and hard to apply evenly. The swatch below is after two coats.

shu shu red is a creamy tomato red. This is a classic, easy to wear shade. I liked this one a lot despite my poor application on my left hand. I am left handed, okay? 😛 This applied well, needing only two coats for full opacity.

The mon shu nail stickers come with each bottle of nail color in this collection, and sure they are fun. These do however, cost a couple of dollars more because of the stickers. What do I think? I don’t really care for them. I found the stickers to be too narrow and too long for my short and stout nail beds. I am not really a “nart” kinda girl anyway. I found these to be very sticky, so make sure that your nails are fully dry before applying them.

Of the three, karl black and shu shu red are great and I’d recommend them in a heartbeat. They are a great inexpensive way to get your hands on this highly anticipated holiday collection. 🙂

  • The problem is that those nail stickers are really juvenile looking. I’d love to have shu uemura include neat stencils rather than stickers with a product like that.

  • My favorite is definitely Karl Black! When this collection finally makes its way here I’ll definitely check it out 🙂

    Yeah, those stickers are too young for me! Marky might like them though.
