Today I have a new name for you – Aurelia nail polishes. If I’m not mistaken, it’s a Russian brand. I’ve heard about their products many times before, but I never paid much attention to them. However yesterday, when I happened to be in the other side of the city, I found a big stand of Aurelia polishes in a cosmetic store there. Several bottles looked really nice, so I decided to give them a try. Here’s the first one – Aurelia Magnifique #196:
Call me crazy, but I think that a name is an important part of a nail polish. If I like a color and it has a cute name, somehow I like it even more. This time it’s just a number. Well, at least they named their collections. Today’s polish is from the Magnifique line.
Now back to Aurelia #196 and it’s 9 ml bottle:
Aurelia #196 is a mix of white and black micro glitter in a clear base. Actually I’m not sure if it’s possible to call the polish a “glitter” as the b&w micro flakes don’t glitter at all. I think best way to use it is as a top to refresh an old/boring shade.
Formula wise the polish was really good and easy to apply. I didn’t even have to shake the bottle to get more glitter on the brush (which I usually do when applying glitter polishes). I used 1 coat of Aurelia #196 over OPI I Vant to Be A-lone Star for the photos here. I wore this OPI shade only 2-3 times since I bought it last year, because I didn’t like how it looked on me. Now I think I found the way to wear it.
Overall, I liked the polish. I will also try to pair it with slightly darker shades :)
Thank you for reading! Have a great weekend xxx
