Giorgio Armani Beauty Nail Lacquer - At Your Fingertips

My savvy readers probably already know about Giorgio Armani's new Nail Lacquers ($20). They started to arrive at counters weeks ago, so they should be available at all stores by now. I haven't set foot in a store since the weekend before last - mostly because my back was in bad shape. I had a procedure yesterday for that.

My own photo of Taupe Greige (#105), taken indoors at the Armani counter at the Chevy Chase Saks Fifth Avenue, is shown above. It caught my attention instantly because it is an Armani signature color.

A richer, thicker polish creates exceptional shine with long-lasting color. The flat and wide brush sets a clean drop at the base of the nail and easily stretches color to the nail tip with one stroke. The transforming gel-on brush prevents dripping for a clean, precise application.
  • Easy and precise application
  • Provides long-lasting color and shine
I'm sure the nail bloggers have already had a field day with the 18 sophisticated shades. When I was in the store, only a few testers had arrived. I need to go back and select a few colors to purchase. There is such a range of beautiful shades, it's going to be tough to limit my purchase to two - max - in order to practice my newfound restraint.

Gio (#301), shown directly above, is a classic red, but the colors range from light and iridescent to traditional. There is something in the collection for everyone. You can see little online swatches here.

Have you seen them yet? The look is luxurious - typical Armani. The brush must have been made for me and others impatient to apply nail lacquers. I don't want to have to swipe seven times to evenly color my nails with the first coat.

I will let you know (with swatches) when the full collection has arrived, and I've purchased my two. Think I'm going to succeed with my "only two" resolution?

Based on the swatches I think I need 103, 700, 701 and 702. Good luck selecting only two! I have yet to see these in person. I'm going to rectify that soon.

Speaking of Armani, I saw the Holiday Eccentrico collection online and was surprised at the bright lips and nails. I'll have to wait to see them in person or on your blog before deciding about them. The highlighting powder looks like a must have though.

Sorry to hear your back is giving you troubles. I hope the procedure went smoothly and you are on the road to recovery :)

Restraint- what a concept.

The taupe is heavenly- sigh.

Oh, they are really gorgeous. I love the Taupe Greige and the 702--Kaleidoscope. I can see why it is difficult to restrain yourself to just two. There are so many pretty colors.

I'm sorry to hear of your back pain. I hope the procedure you had gives you lasting relief.

Have a beautiful day, CG.
