One, two, three coats
You all know I'm a sucker for a good nail polish. Everyone knows. When Guerlain launched 2 nail lacquers with the Emilio Pucci collection, I had the girls immediately put one of the six Rivieras on hold for me (that's right... we only received six in the first shipment).
Though it's super gorgeous in colour, a deep, rich shimmering warm blue, and almost infallible in ease of application and fast drying time to boot, this has one big downfall.
The lasting power or lack thereof. Pictured above is one full day of wear on my non-dominant hand, no topcoat and you can already see chips (the nick on my index finger) and noticeable tipwear. On my right hand, where I'd applied two coats for testing (also no topcoat) there were huge chips and peels. Half my index finger was left bare!!! :(
Get it if you love the colour, have the money, and have nothing to do all day except sit around and look fabulous with 3 layers of topcoat. Otherwise, it's not worth the luxury price tag.
In store for you today, Fierce. It's a medium violet- not too cool, not too warm, not too light, not too dark.
