So the boy and I were shopping in the city about 2 weeks ago and as usual I was drooling over countless products in the Myer beauty department. I was drooling over the Chanel 2010 Summer display and the boy told me to just bite the bullet and buy the darned polish if I wanted it that much. Now don't get me wrong, I love to indulge myself on the rare occasion but $39Aus for ONE nail polish is just RIDICULOUS. For that price I could purchase almost 20 Ulta 3 polishes!
Of course it’s not the same but you can see the crazy mark ups Aussie girls have to deal with when it comes to beauty items. I resisted and we left the store but he insisted I get the polish and offered to go halves with me as a gift for getting through my assessments so back into the store we went. The rest they say is history and this little aqua baby is all MINE! It was the last bottle they had – someone had put it on hold but never picked it up so their loss was my gain. I also had a $20 Myer gift card that needed to be used so this polish comes guilt free as I didn't break my shopping ban. YAY!
Nouvelle Vague is a gorgeous shade of aqua which is very similar to China Glaze For Audrey but with very subtle shimmer through it. It’s difficult to see the shimmer unless you’re in sunlight or direct light.
Application was a bit of a pain which I was expecting after reading reviews. The formula is a little thick which is disappointing. I’ve been debating whether or not to thin it.. any suggestions ladies? The 1st coat was a streaky mess and it took another 2 to get it perfect. Below is 3 coats.
All in all an absolutely gorgeous polish however the formula could use some improvement. I will leave you with some picture spam of the jewel of my polish collection!!
Hope you like it! Thank you for looking =)
