Lancome Limited Edition French Riviera Collection Swatches and Review

Lancome French Riviera Collection

Hi! Today I have Lancôme's wonderful Summer 2014 additions to the Vernis in Love nail polish range to show you, all inspired by summer nights on the French Riviera (sounds dreamy, right!?) 

The press release for this collection states: "This glistening limited edition collection encapsulates the blue serenity of the Mediterranean and golden sands" and I have to agree, it does! Lancôme is one of my favourite high-end brands for polish; while they are expensive, the formula for me is second to none and much better than a Chanel or a Dior. As I said in my last Lancome review, the brush is to die for too! 

Nuit d'Azur (557) is one of THOSE blues. It's like a slightly bolder cousin of Nails Inc. Baker Street. This has a beautiful formula, perfect in 2 coats and supremely glossy even without topcoat.

Marine Chic (555) is a true Navy Blue, and a true 1 coat polish! 2 of my nails have 1 coat on, and 2 have 2 coats on. No difference at all! The formula is perfection.

Golden Riviera (340) is my favourite of the 3. This is a beautiful golden sand colour, with a soft matte finish. It has the look of a liquid sand style polish, but it's completely smooth! It has tiny flecks of warm gold scattered throughout, and is perfect in 2 coats.

When you add a top coat, Golden Riviera comes alive! I can't decide whether I prefer it satin or glossy, both are just lovely. If you like sparkle though, definitely add top coat and get this in the beautiful!

  1. I really like this second one ! The opacity is just perfect ♥

  2. The gold is pretty! It wouldn't be fitting for my skin colour but it is indeed very beautiful! :)

  3. Gosh I love the gold one so much. Unfortunately I have to do my nail art on a pretty tight budget at £13 for 6ml is a bit steep for me, so I shall just admire it from afar. Along with your cuticles, which I am perennially envious of.

  4. Great swatches! The nail polish bottles are so pretty too! Golden Riviera looks amazing with a topcoat - I cannot believe the difference! Nuit d'Azur is such a nice bright blue too! :)

  5. I loved the gold one. It has just enough sparkles. Btw your nails are perfect.

  6. Golden Riviera is beautiful with or without the top coat.
