Lancôme Vernis In Love
Let’s talk nails! Extending Lancôme’s current “In Love” lines is the brand spankin’ new Vernis In Love ($16 for 6 ml). I don’t have the best nails for nail swatches, and so I asked the help of a wonderful friend Ayu to swatch the shades. She has great nails; they are fake nail calibre and I think I might just make her the resident nail swatcher for Glitter Geek. Hahaha.
Vernis In Love comes with a wide curved brush that makes application very easy. The bottles are tiny, so they are quite expensive; they are 6 ml instead of the usual 13-15 ml. These are all two-coaters, and they all applied smoothly.
Pure Narcisse 020M is a sheer nude creme. This is a clean, your-nails-but-better shade.
Rose Boudoir 375B is a fuchsia rose creme. A classic, goes-with-everything shade.
Gris Angora 407N is a violet-tinged grey creme. This one was a little bit bubbly, but it levelled out after two coats.
Rouge Réglisse 473N is a deep blackberry creme. Wouldn’t this be a great colour for the cooler months?
For the launch of the collection, Lancôme has suggested colour pairings for perfectly coordinated fingers and toes. Which one is your favourite? According to the brand, Aquamarine & Rouge In Love are set to become overnight cult classics. I’d have to agree! They are gorgeous.

What do you think of this Vernis In Love line? Do any of the colours catch your eye? What is your favourite fingers and toes pairing when it comes to nail polish? I always wear a lot of blue and teals in the summer, and also coral. But I think those actually don’t coordinate, eh?
