Festive polish at your fingertips

christian-dior-nail-polish-gold-confetti

You don’t have to step away from the classic red, but this year gold and silver shades are also vèry suitable to celebrate in.

The season’s penchant for ‘precious’ varnishes has appeared everywhere from Dior and Sally Hansen, to MAC and OPI, Bobbi Brown and Essie, Mavala and Burberry. There’s a shade to suite any skin tone, any personal style, and any occassion. We could go on, but for now we’ll just recommend you pay attention to a few further bejewelled tones, and our utter favourites; in the form of bright emerald (‘Emerald’ by Dolce & Gabbana), a dark cherry with golden pollen-like particles (‘995 Minuit’ by Dior).

Those who prefer to channel a demure palette should investigate the pearly pink polish in ‘Le Charm’ by Marc Jacobs, and perhaps browse through our defined polish edit, should you require any more direction with your festive digits:

Christian Louboutin Launches Neo-Reds

Christian-Louboutin-Red-Nail-Polishes-Spring_3860a104850_original

From shoes to nail polishes, Christian Louboutin is painting the town red once again with his trademark. The luxury shoe designer is bringing a new trio name ‘The Neo Reds’ to his range of nail color shades for the new season. One coat is all that is needed for that glossy coat, thanks to the highly pigmented formula.

For a little shine, fans of the designer nail polishes can don a peony red with a subtle sparkle named ‘Jazzy Doll’ after Louboutin’s leather sandals. The ‘Lady Peep’ is a deep raspberry that is named after the popular peep-toe stiletto. Those in favour of a brighter shade of red can try the ‘Edgy Popi’. The preppy and flirty orange-red is the right amount of colour one would need. The polishes are longwearing and chip resistant as well as free of toluene, formaldehyde and DBP.

Christian Louboutin first broke into the beauty industry in 2014 with a nail polish collection, but cemented his influence on the market last September when he released a lipstick line that riffed on his iconic red shade. The line’s star piece, ‘The Rouge Louboutin’ lipstick, packaged in luxurious black, silver and gold casing, was accompanied by a further 35 hues, packaged in gold casing and priced at $90.

Louboutin’s The Jazzy Doll, Lady Peep and EdgyPopi shades, will be available from June in selected stores and on Christian Louboutin’s website for $50.

For the face,

The star of the collection is definitely the uber gorgeous illuminator Poudre Lumiere Originelle, an enhancing powder for an imperceptible, soft focus finish. It is a light pink highlighter  that leaves the skin radiant and luminous. Quite possibly the most beautiful powder of the season! And then I mean: it’s result!

There is also a new shade of the cult Givenchy Le Prisme Blush in 41 Lune Rosée which combines the following shades: peach, light pink, rose pink and coral. Seems like another must have to perk up the complexion.

I love the idea of the brand’s Mister Scrub which is a gentle exfoliator in a stick format and Mister Gentlebalm which is a lip balm that combines a moisture booster and a colour enhancer to nourish, hydrate and naturally reveal lip colour.
