P2 ~ 997 C’est La Vie

P2 ~ 997 C’est La Vie
Magenta with shy shimmer

Let me show you a couple of polishes I bought in Germany recently. The first one up is C’est La Vie, which is a lovely magenta shimmer. It was my boyfriend who picked that one for me and I love it.

The formula is good and I used two coats to achieve desired opacity. Drying time between the coats is good too. I applied a thin layer of Poshé topcoat and then I took my pictures.

Two coats plus a layer of Poshé topcoat, picture is taken in the sun:

I quite like this colour!

Then I cut out some tape and taped each nail. I covered the non-taped part of the nail with another German beauty, Catch My Eye from Rival de Loop. It’s a blue textured polish with holo glitter, score!

Here’s what the two pretty polishes look like together:

I love that the textured polish contains holo glitter!

I like simple two-coloured manis, so I obviously like this. What say you?

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmer / Texture
Overall impression: I like both polishes for different reasons
Buy again: Yes
