So what are the news in the nail polish world?
First of all, lacquer fans have to know that Armani just launched a line of their own varnishes, each retails for £20 and on the picture above you can see 503 Eccentrico.
The always original Ciate came up with the new innovative manicure kit -Feathered Manicure . Pictured above is “What A Hoot” which retails for £20. And, yes, you basically use real feathers for your mani. It’s up to you to decided whether this is your thing, or not.

For someone who is not exactly into “nude” nail polishes, I have quite a few. I have chosen seven which could fit the nude/taupe/brown-ish category.
So what shades do I have? And which is my favourite?
Dior Vernis in Grege
I love the wide and thin brush which makes the application super easy and fast. It is a beautiful warm shade which suits me when I get some tan. But if you have a light-to-medium warm skin tone – this may be a perfect nude for you. See it applied on the nails.
MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring
This is one of the darkest nail polishes from the selection, and should be a nice nude for people with darker skin. Or if you want a brown nail polish against the light skin. The quality is nice for the price, too. Swatches.
Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Taupe
This is definitely not a nude, but a taupe. Such shade was super popular several years ago and I can totally see why: it goes well with pretty much everything and doesn’t compete with your outfit or accessories. Manicure with it.

I am happy to share about the new nail polish brand called LVX (Latin, means Light) which is a 5 Free (without Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor), cruelty free, vegan nail polish.
The main idea behind the brand is to compliment the seasonal fashion trends.
So far there are only three collections available – Summer 2012, Fall/Winter 2012 and Winter Resort 2013. And I have a shade which is a part of the Fall/Winter collection and is called Sanguine.
The formula of this nail polish is great, it goes on smoothly without streaks and looks beautiful even with one coat, but I still prefer two. The brush, which is also a very important thing, is nice,aw well. It’s not too thin or too thick (although I personally like thick brushes), just spot on.

Most people usually wear dark nail polishes for Autumn/Winter but Dior suggest we brighten up our days with their new nail polish collection.
These three vibrant nail polishes were released to celebrate the launch of Dior’s 2013 Cruise collection.
- Mango (438): A deliciously fruity and radiant yellow.
- Pastèque (658): A rich and sensual pink with an aquatic sheen.
- Lime (602): A sparkling acid green for colour block nails.
Each is £18. Which one do you like the best?
There is also a new nail polish collection from Le Metier De Beaute. The inspiration is ”Ming [Dynasty] meets Modern”.

I am a huge fan of berry and plum nail polishes, especially for Autumn/Winter period, they look very sophisticated and chic. I have actually never tried Guerlain nail lacquers (£18 / €23) before, so was excited to start with Lou-Ling from their Christmas collection, as it is a beautiful shade.
It is a gorgeous glossy plum with very subtle micro shimmer which is only visible under the certain light or with a certain flash.
Lou-Ling has a nice formula which goes on smoothly and looks opaque with only one coat. But I do wear two coats on the picture above. The brush is thinner than I personally like but since it’s not very not long, it gives you a good control.
This is a wonderful classic nail colour, and I would definitely recommend it to everyone who loves luxury brands. It would make a great present, too.Read More
