For all those who have been waiting for Lancome’s nail polishes to arrive on our shores, I’m happy (and partially sad) to announce that we’re almost there! You have to wait 4 more months though for the full collection – they will only be available in the mid-2013.
However we have a “teaser” of sorts for now! Like the Midnight Rose for last year’s A/W 2012 collection, Lancome’s Vernis in Love in 335N Rose Macaron is a GWP (gift with purchase) when you get either the blush or eyeshadow palette from Lancome’s Limited Edition Spring in Love collection (click to read post). Take note that the Spring collection is only available at 4 counters – Takashimaya, Tangs Orchard, Robinsons Centrepoint and Robinsons Raffles City.
According to Joey, the polishes coming to Singapore will be an Asian formulation and supposedly improved too. Currently, the bottle of 335N Rose Macaron I’m holding is made in France, holds 6ml of polish and is in a tiny bottle with a black cap.
• Multi-Polymers Complex provides a film that protects color and keeps nails perfectly polished
• White Mica Lamellas reflect natural light for a high shine finish
• Grooved stem allows the polish to flow directly to the center, while the elongated, round base distributes uniform color in a single stroke
I love, love love the brush. It makes application (shaping especially if you have rounded cuticles) so easy of the rounded flat brush, and it’s a breeze to deposit color as it holds just the right amount of polish. The polish also dries fast, and is shiny even without top coat!
I had the opportunity to swatch some more of the lovely polishes while I was at Lancome’s office, so here they are!

Lancome in Love in collaboration with Olympia Le-Tan Contest
“To celebrate their first birthday, Rouge In Love and Vernis In Love enter the whimsical, make-believe world of Parisian designer Olympia Le-Tan.
Three initials, OLT, the best-kept secret of celebrities and fashionistas; RIL and VIL, three must-have initials of style queens and beauty addicts. The encounter between Lancôme and Olympia Le-Tan was written in the stars.”
“After spending several years working with prestigious fashion houses, Olympia Le-Tan founded her eponymous label in 2009. Her designs are influenced by the graphics of the forties and fifties, as well as their glamorous pin-up girls. Passionate about embroidery and a great lover of literature, Olympia Le-Tan immediately attracted attention with her now cult-status accessory: a hand-embroidered minaudière based on old book covers that she reinterprets at whim in tune with her reading. The stylish clutches quickly found their way onto the red carpet and into the dressing rooms of the most informed and admired actresses. In March 2012, Olympia Le-Tan showed the press her first ready-to-wear collection, a retro look infused with a modern, rock-star vibe, incredibly chic and edgy. An instant hit.”
There is ONLY ONE SET of this to be won, and it is a contest held by Lancome, specially for the month of Feb starting from Valentines’ Day! It is a special minaudière book clutch, with 6 Rouge in Love lipsticks and 6 Vernis in Love nail polishes specially selected by Olympia Le-Tan and Lancome for this gift set.
