Il était un vernis - Paeonia

Hi everyone!

Another swatch post that I should have posted a week ago...
Let me present Paeonia by Il était un vernis. Isn't it a gorgeous spring color?

It's a bit too red in my picture (as are my fingers). In real life it's a beautiful coral that is packed with gold and pink shimmer and some holographic shimmer thrown in as well. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of my nails in direct light but I took a shot of the bottle with my mobile so you can see the gorgeousness of all the shimmers. The color isn't accurate in this one either though, it's somewhere between the reddish pink above and the orange below.

It's a bit sheer so I ended up painting four thin coats. It dried pretty quick so those four coats didn't take too long. I was a bit surprised by the slightly matte and very slightly textured finish, probably caused by all the shimmer. A coat of Seche Vite remedied that and made sure my manicure lasted for almost a week without any chips and just a little tip wear.

I didn't plan to wear Paeonia for as long as I did but I didn't mind seeing it on my nails either. The color is beautiful but not too girly and the twinkles that popped up under direct light make it even more interesting. Definitely a color I will wear again :)

Il était un vernis Paeonia was bought from The Nailista Shop.
