Dolce & Gabbana Mint nail polish for spring and summer 2012 review

Dolce & Gabbana released their beautiful, runway inspired, “Bouquet” beauty collection for the spring and summer 2012 season. This fabulous collection of vivid colors includes several shades of nail polish which I could not pass up. Since “mint” is one of the hot colors of the season, and a shade I have not used in the past for nail polish, I decided to give the polish a whirl. Here is my review:

Dolce & Gabbana’s “Bouquet Collection” mint nail polish was my first test of the designing duo’s beauty products. I have always been in love with Dolce & Gabbana’s apparel and accessories collection, in fact, I have purchased several of their designs over the years. So, it was only natural for me to try their line of cosmetics.

Dolce & Gabbana’s mint nail polish is packaged in the designing duo’s classic long nail polish bottle. The applicator brush holds a lot of polish and as I began to apply the first coat I discovered right away that the brush needs to be rubbed along the side of the bottle opening a few times before brushing the polish onto my nails. After the first coat, I realized the polish was matte and found it dried nice and quick. Love that!

After my nails were ready, I applied the second coat and it went on smoothly and evenly. There was absolutely no streaking and the color was even. The matte nature of the color was intriguing and gave the otherwise feminine mint hue a little bit of an edge; which I love!

The polish has been wearing well and is extremely chip resistant. I have washed a few dishes by hand without gloves and the polish didn’t chip or crack; showing the high quality finish of Dolce & Gabbana’s nail polish. Fabulous!

I am giving Dolce & Gabbana’s mint nail polish from the “Bouquet Collection” five out of five stars.

Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue and also at Dolce & Gabbana boutiques. The nail polish is priced at $20.
