Champagne, s'il vous plait?

Pin It
Happy Weekend!

Farmers has Orly Buy 1 Get 1 Free on at the moment so I took the opportunity to get a couple of the Holiday Soiree polishes. Here is Au Champagne; the prettiest white there ever was!

Au Champagne - natural light

Au Champagne - artificial lighting

Au Champagne is the most beautiful delicate white shimmer I've ever seen. I have to admit I wasn't a fan of the formula though. It dries matte and was pretty uneven until the third coat. I had to put on some shiny top coat to make it look nice. The finished product was worth it. Perhaps I just need to take more care applying it next time? On the sunny side, it dries quickly.

This is sort of a substitute for the white Kardashian polish I can't get my hands on. I wonder how they compare IRL?

Oh it's so beautiful I love looking at the pictures!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend,


  1. I agree, this is a gorgeous white. Love the shimmer.

  2. Ha ha - great minds think alike. I snagged a couple from Farmers in PN today - Le Chateau and Angrogynie. Which one was your freebie?

  3. I love Farmer's Orly deals!!! I bought Androgynie off Ebay back in October so I got Ingenue as my freebie (I wanted Le Chateau but I think it just ends up looking black). I thought it would be a Rally Pretty Pink dupe but it's too purple as well! Any chance you want it? I have OPI It's My Year & Orly Rock the World and all 3 are super close in colour with the exact same finish!!! And all are too cool for my skintone argh!

  4. Thanks but no thanks. I'm not really one for foils or glitter - the exceptions being BL No More Waity, Katie and my new obsession - BL The Black Knight. Seriously, get a bottle, you will not regret it!!

  5. Wow seriously great minds! I did get it at the same time as the orlys!!! I hate the formula but love the finished result - with a couple layers of seche vite.

  6. LOL - yep, it took 2 (thick) coats of SV to tame that beastie but it was SO worth it. I haven't been able to stop staring at my nails all day!! Thankfully the sun has been out so it's been a sparkly glitter fest of a day.

  7. I love a pretty white too! Any idea how this compares to NOPI It's All About the Glam?

  8. No I can't get my hands on IAATG but I'm hoping they are close. The Nicole one may have tiny glitter in it but we'll have to search for some swatches
