To complete the Fall collection, Lancome will release two new nail polishes in classic red and edgy black.

The red – #22 Rouge St Honore is a classic, vixen red creme with great single-coat opacity and a high gloss finish.  The brush on these polishes is wide and allows for 3-stroke coverage, meaning that I was completely done with the red in less than 5 minutes from start to finish (not allowing for drying time of course).

The black – #29 Noir is a little more unusual in that the inky base  is infused with mini, multi-coloured flecks.  Sadly, these don’t quite translate as vividly on the nail as they do in the bottle.  Also a little sheerer than the red, this one took a respectable 2 coats to achieve opacity.

See below for swatches…

Lancome’s Le Vernis in #22 Rouge Saint Honore & #29 Noir 29 are priced at £12.50 each and available at Lancome counters nationwide from 1st September 2011

    That is my idea of a perfect red – creamy, clean and bright. Honestly, i think people often overlook how nice red nails can look! Love the darker shade too but this is the kind of shade that i’m never satisfied with when i paint it on – it never looks as glam on me as it does in the bottle.

  11. Gauri says:

    Product looks very promising & I loved the packaging :)

  12. kelly says:

    After what I said about the black, I bought a very close shade called Beautifully Black by No.7 and have been wearing it since!

  13. esther says:

    I like the black one, very similar to L’Oreal Titanium Shine and resist in 735, luckily I have that so no need to splash out on Lancome!
