I hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far :). I’ve got a very BEAUTIFUL nail polish set to review for you today, by Deborah Lippmann. The set is called ‘Roses in the Snow‘ and features a gorgeous blush pink, muted shade and a pretty pink glitter top coat. You can buy this set from Selfridges, (apologies may be out of stock), Look Fantastic, and I think you can get it from Harvey Nichols too (my family and I had an early, fake Christmas and my sister bought this for me as a present :)).
This set is packaged so nicely, it actually has snow in the clear section of the packaging <3
I’m really a massive fan of blushed pinks at the moment and have been wearing this colour in every way that I can!
The bottles are so pretty, I love the way the actual glass bottle is different to normal polish bottles because at the bottom there is a chic looking indent in the base of it. The bottle tops have a pearlescent feel to them which make them feel really luxurious. The shades themselves are stunning…‘Modern Love’ is the blushed pink polish and ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ is the pink glitter. The shades and the formula is very good – but I can’t say I’m wild about the staying power of these.
Using my trusty Seche Vite top coat the tips of the polish still wore off, and the glitter top coat adhered well but didn’t last very long. I found that the polish was PEELABLE by around day 4 – which is a real shame. I don’t know if this is due to the formula OR the fact that I used Seche Vite over the top (usually it lasts a lot longer than that, sometimes two weeks).
I really like the shades of these polishes but I have to say I was disappointed with the lasting power – when you think about the price of this set it is quite a lot for just two polishes where the bottles are actually quite small. Something like Essie would probably be better value for money and the formula could be better too!
I hope you enjoyed reading this post!
