I’m a sucker for a pretty sheer polish, especially if it has an opalescent shimmer. I happened to have bare nails when I went by the Guerlain counter recently and was able to try their limited edition nail polish, Stardust, for their Spring 2014 Meteorites Blossom collection. I was immediately sold.
What can I say that isn’t obvious from the photos? Guerlain Stardust is a pearly shimmer with blueish green undertones, that is almost opaque with 3 coats. I prefer the slightly more sheer effect from two coats. It works well on top of other colours, but it is not as sheer as, say, Deborah Lippmann’s Dream A Little Dream Of Me (which is perfect for adding simple opalescence to a nail colour). Stardust is nowhere near as blue as it appears on their website, but I kind of wish it was….
I just read Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book’s post on the Guerlain Stardust Lip Gloss and am wondering why I didn’t get it as well! I know where I’m going tomorrow….
Guerlain Stardust and the Meteorites Blossom Collection is available at Guerlain boutiques and counters.
