If you picked up this nail lacquer from Lancomes Holiday collection, lucky! Unlikely it’d still be available as it was a limited edition shade, but I didn’t want to keep the loveliness which is 071 Etincelle D’Argent to myself, just in case there was a chance you’d still be able to hunt this down!
Le Vernis 071 is a cool toned silver tinsel shade, textured and MATTE.
What I loved most about this lacquer was the consistency, not too runny or thick and it applied free of streaks achieving full opacity in just two coats.
Upon application of a top coat (in this case the Guerlain gel coat) I found the colour intensified and the glimmer more pronounced. It’s also worth noting that the top coat did not alter the textured surface, or turn it glossy.
*All photographs were taken sans top coat, so you see this nail lacquer true to form.
This nail lacquer felt heavy on the nails. Almost strengthening them with its sandy shimmer. I considered that a plus, as my nails are quite thin and prone to chipping.
Drying time between coats was less than five minutes!
The wider brush shape of the Lancome nail lacquers give better control and made it easier to reach the sides of the nail for a neat finish.
Bottom line, I consider it unique and well worth splurging on 🙂 too pretty to pass up.
