Le Métier de Beauté has two new duos of holiday nail shades in Bright as Night and shimmering overlays in Deck the Nails. Christmas Town and Dream Maker are vibrant, vampy deep jewel colors perfect for winter. Christmas Town is a deep emerald with a touch of subtle shimmer and Dream Maker is a royal purple with definite navy undertones–almost a blurple with a cream finish. You can get away with one coat on each of these although I prefer two to bring out the richness of the shades.
L to R: Christmas Town, Dream Maker, Tinsel Town & Moon’s Glow.
Moon’s Glow and Tinsel Town are nail transformers. They are meant to be lacquered overlays* over any color to add a stunning twist on tips. Worn alone, the iridescent shades mix glimmering tones of gold, green and silver for an attention-grabbing, holographic effect. When layered over colors they create completely different and unique shades so this set is VERY versatile.
Tinsel Town is subtle shimmer overlay with crisp celadon undertones and Moon’s Glow is a golden gleam lacquered overlay. Tinsel Town completely alters the original color and Moon’s Glow adds a beautiful soft golden ethereal feel.
Here are some combinations I tried:
Christmas Town with Tinsel Town on top and Dream Maker with Tinsel Town layered on top. Both Christmas Town and Tinsel Town were thicker than the other two shades–nothing than a few drops of polish remover couldn’t cure but I’m wondering if it was just my bottles or if it is actually those shades?
Dream Maker with Moon’s Glow on top, Moon’s Glow alone and Christmas Town with Moon’s Glow on top. These pictures do not the colors justice–there are beautiful and highly dimensional soft shades.
For this weeks mani I chose Christmas Town with Tinsel Town layered on my ring finger. Please excuse my klutzy smudging on my ring finger.
Bottom Line: Le Metier de Beaute’s Holiday Nail Lacquers are simply stunning–ALL of them! If I had to chose I don’t know if I would be able to pick just one…or two…or three. Christmas Town is spectacular, Tinsel Town is the one of most unique and complicated shades I own, Moon’s Glow is delicate and Dream Maker is another exceptional shade. Plus–it’s really fun mixing and matching shades! If you to see the combos I did on real nails, check out Blushing Noir’s post here.
