After a long wait of 2 and 1/2 weeks, my Jill Stuart Valentine Love Collection finally arrived today (I ordered them before Chinese New Year)!
Petite Nail Lacquer, 6ml, HKD75 each
I got all 5 colors!
Can you resist such cute packaging??
I am glad to say that all 5 colors are jelly colors, with 2 solid colors and 3 sheer/ semi translucent ones.
#109 love scandal
The jewel on the bottle cap is dark red
A fiery jelly red, color is solid, 2 coats.
This is my favorite of the lot!
#110 captive of love
The jewel on the bottle cap is dark pink
Bright jelly pink with purplish hues, solid color, 2 coats
#111 love potion
The jewel on the bottle cap is red
Translucent reddish pink, very candy-like, or like the official description, "syrupy". 2 coats here.
#112 love is blind
The jewel on the bottle cap is pink
Sheer coral with gold shimmer. 2 coats.
#113 first love
The jewel on the bottle cap is... amber...nude pink?
Sheer nude pink with silver sparkles. Slightly less sheer in real life, but so sheer in photo you can only see the color of my yellow nails -_-
Thumb: #109, index: #110, middle: #111, ring: #112, little: #113
I really like the formula of the nail polish from this collection. Although #109 & 110 are both jelly solids, 2 coats are sufficient to make the nails opaque. The sheer colors look candy-like on the nails, and the good thing is that they look like they are meant to be sheer, not like some colors that look sheer because they look poorly applied.
The nail lacquers do not have boxes, but each comes with a pretty tag like this one.
Emery Board #01, Front, for a smooth finish, HKD40
Back, for filing
This emery board comes in 2 designs. I got the first one, which is pink in front and black at the back. #02 is the reverse of #01. I will be giving away the #02 in an upcoming Jill Stuart Post Valentine's Day giveaway soon (together with Petite Nail Lacquer #109)!
This emery board really CAN FILE! I love it!
Blotting Paper N Valentine Love Edition #02, HKD150
Not only the casing, but the packaging for the blotting paper is black as well!
What do you think of this collection? I love it! If you love it as much as I do, stay tuned for the Jill Stuart Post Valentine's Day Giveaway, which I will be posting up soon, by this week!
