Not that y’all didn’t already know that but considering it’s Bastille Day weekend and there will inevitably be a Bastille Day themed manicure tomorrow I thought it was worth saying again. The holiday gave me a perfect excuse to give Winter in Paris a try!
LuxeCoat is a new(ish) nail polish brand that focuses on producing cruelty free nail polish with sustainable vegan ingredients. We don’t cover near enough cruelty free, vegan brands on this blog so when LuxeCoat offered to send me a few polishes to review I happily accepted.
Winter in Paris is a medium rose creme with pretty significant brown and yellow undertones (it reminds me an awful lot of Revlon ColorStay Vintage Rose). This is definitely a color that is more appropriate for the cooler weather (as the name clearly implies) but a pretty, classic color none the less.
The formula is good. I used just two coats in my swatches. That being said, I did have a bit of difficulty with application.
The first thing I noticed about the LuxeCoat polishes is they appear to be in Orly Instant Artist bottles. LuxeCoat is not affiliated with Orly so I have no explanation for that. But, the problem arises because the bottle is so tall. Due to this, product tens to run down and it’s easy for product to build up on the brush. This can be remedied by cleaning off the brush between each stroke.
LuxeCoat polishes are a bit pricey at $15 a bottle but if you’re looking for a cruelty free, vegan friendly polish and you’re willing to pay a bit of a premium for that definitely check out their website.
