This Holiday 2015, Cle de Peau has collaborated with famed jewelry designer Joji Kojima to create a series of ornate mask designs to adorn the special collection. The inspiration, is of course, a masquerade ball, set in opulent Venice. There are 4 items in the collection – a makeup coffers set comprising of eyeshadow quad, mini lipstick and mascara; a special body powder, special edition Le Serum, and a nail lacquer trio. The last caught my eye the most, and I’d like to share them with you today.
Cle de Peau Collection Bal Masque Nail Lacquer Trio is adorned with the Elena mask design, which is on the box and each bottle cap. The glass bottles and caps have beveled edges that give the bottles a luxurious feel. I also really appreciated the fact that the brush heads are the wide and flattened style that makes application a breeze!
Each of the nail lacquers are numbered at the bottom, and that is how I shall refer to them.
Cle de Peau Collection Bal Masque Nail Lacquer Trio – 1 is a deep oxblood red that has some brown tints to it. It is nicely opaque in 2 thin coats, and leaves behind a beautiful glossy finish. This is a classic colour that never gets old, and can be worn for day or night.
Cle de Peau Collection Bal Masque Nail Lacquer Trio – 2 is a deep metallic khaki with a generous mix of very fine, multicoloured shimmers. My eyes can make out at least gold, purple and green before spacing out, and on the nails it is a stunner! This has a slight bit of texture to it, but smoothens out with a good top coat.
Cle de Peau Collection Bal Masque Nail Lacquer Trio – 3 is a metallic silver with shimmers. This is a much more straight-forward shimmery polish than Chanel’s Rose Fusion [reviewed here] and quite linear, which makes it more suitable for parties than office. On the other hand, the brush strokes are less visible and with the flat head brush it is easier as well.
The Cle de Peau Collection Bal Masque Nail Lacquer Trio is sold as a set and retails at SGD90 or USd75 for 3. Each bottle contains 8ml, slightly less than the usual 10ml, but at SGD30 per bottle, it is cheaper than all the other luxury brands as well. This nail lacquer trio is a really great stocking stuffer and gift idea, and is even more special as Cle de Peau does not offer nail lacquers normally. So be sure to check this out and don’t miss it!
