Day 8 Featuring Givenchy Noir Celeste

Good afternoon my fellow Lacquered Lovers!  First things first.  This is my 150th post!  So fun!  In case you haven't noticed, I get excited by numbers!  Now, that being said, I have a fun nail polish to celebrate with!  When the Sephora Friends and Family sale was going on a few weeks ago, I took advantage of the 20% off EVERYTHING!  This is one of the polishes I got.  So now, without further ado, on to the polish!

I have never bought a Givenchy nail polish before (or anything for that matter) but I really like how polite they are!  Look, their nail polish line is called Vernis Please!  Polite AND enthusiastic!  Gotta love that!  Noir Celeste is a limited edition from their holiday 2011 collection.  At first glance, it's not that exciting and kind of just looks black.  However it has tiny dark silver or gunmetal glitter strewn throughout that gives it a great "stars in the night time" look.  This is a great alternative for people who don't want huge silver flecks like NARS Night Breed.  The dark silver glitter effect is subtle, but make this more special than a plain black polish.  Here is a macro shot:

Ok not my best macro shot but you get the idea!  The sparkles just give it a bit of a glowy look to it that is great for the holidays when you want to be fancy, but a bit edgy.

Givenchy Noir Celeste is available exclusively at Sephora for $16.50.  Bit of a hefty price tag given how small the bottle is, however you could easily layer this over a cheap plain black to make it last longer.  I was a bit disappointed in the brush since it was a bit bushy in my opinion and for that kind of a price tag (even with 20% off it was still well over $10) I'd like a bigger bottle, but win some, lose some.  It's a nice polish, fully opaque in 2 coats and I'll definitely wear it again!

  1. I have never tried Givenchy nail polishes, but this one looks very pretty!

  2. I love this polish! I wish I took advantage of that Friends & Family sale.

  3. Nice! I don't often see swatches of Givenchy, so it's very refreshing :)

  4. I don't have any. But it is pretty. I dunno pretty enough for the price.

  5. that is lovely! i like the subtle sparkle.

  6. Thanks ladies! it's definitely a pretty polish, however I don't think it justifies the price tag, especially since it's so small!

  7. Once upon a time a certain tradesman was leading a caravan to gw2 gold another country to sell his goods. Along the way they came to the edge of a severe hot-sand desert. They asked about, and found that during the daytime the sun heats up the fine sand until it's as hot as charcoal, so no one can walk on it -- not even bullocks or camels! So the caravan leader hired a desert guide, one who could follow the stars, so they could travel only at night when guild wars 2 gold the sand cools down. They began the dangerous night-time journey across the desert. A couple nights later, after eating their evening meal, and waiting for the sand to cool guild wars 2 gold, they started out again.

  8. Two men were travelling in a very wild and lonely part of America buy age gold.For days they had not even seen a house, only a few huts made of wood, or tents made of skins.Then one day they met an old Indian who earned his living by trapping animals for heir fur cheap age gold. They found that he knew their language and they had a little conversation with him.One of them asked him if he could tell them what the weather would be like within the next few days age gold buy.“Oh yes,”he said.“Rain is coming, and wind.Then there will be snow for two days, but after that there will be bright sunshine”
