Guerlain Marc Jacobs Beauty Nail Polish

Three Little Nail Updates

October 4, 2013

There are a few nail things to talk about as this week comes to a close….

Gel Topcoats 23

First, to update my Gel Topcoat post, I was able to fully revive the last dregs of my Guerlain Top Coat with the Seche Restore (described here in the original post).  The Guerlain formula was getting a little thick as I reached the bottom third of the bottle, but a healthy dose of the Seche Restore makes it like new again.  Now that my top coat is good to the last drop, my only reservation is that I wish that the brush was a little longer, because I’ll be using this one all the way to the end.

Second, Sephora’s full Formula X line is up online. Although not all of these polishes are new, they are fun. I was able to play with Brain Power (the camel) and Chaotic, an impressionistic topcoat that mixes all kinds of shapes to look like a splatter painting. At around $10-12, these are a creative way to do nail art even if you aren’t a wizard with a brush.

Third, Marc Jacobs has finished his last show as lead designer for Louis Vuitton Ready to Wear with a lovely deep blue Marc Jacobs Beauty Midnight in Paris. This is due out as a limited edition shade next Fall.

    Good to know about the Guerlain Top Coat. I do believe this is the one I’ll be getting instead of Dior. Thanks for the extra info. 🙂

    Chaotic looks just like Lynnderella’s Connect the Dots. Totally love your description–I don’t think I’ve ever heard glitter polish described as a splatter painting before. It instantly makes me think of Jackson Pollock–who is one of my favorite artists ever.

    Very pretty nail art. Will check out the top coat though.
