Saint Germain - swatches and review

Monday, June 4, 2012

I received a wonderful package of Saint Germain polishes to share with you. Saint Germain makeup is an affordable cosmetics collection with contemporary design and Parisian sophistication.

The first thing that grabbed my attention when I saw them was the packaging -- Simple, yet chic and classy.

The polishes apply wonderfully and have a relatively quick dry time. Once dry the polish has a wonderful glossy shine. I did not use a top coat for the photos.
 
The colors I received to share with you are:
 
  • Purple silver
  • Taupe
  • Pink Lotus
  • Sea Green 
  • Yellow Sunny
 
Saint Germain Purple Silver
Silver Purple applied well, although it did leave brush stroke lines. I used three coats to get the color saturation that you see. This color is a little dated to me. But in natural light it is actually quite nice. It would be great by candlelight as it has a very classy look in natural light. It is a light lilac color with a silver sheen.

Saint Germain Taupe

Taupe is not a color I would have chosen from the bottle. But is is a wonderful color that has a classy shine. Taupe is an elegant shade that is quite honestly best described as its name --  taupe.   I used two coats and it is a color I would put in my polish arsenal as I don't have anything quite like this. This photo is with two coats.


Saint Germain Pink Lotus
 
Pink Lotus is a bright shade of pink. It applied wonderfully in two coats. The color reminds me of water lilies and is vivid and gives off a distinct feeling of summer. 

Saint Germain Sea Green

For those of you who love spring and summertime looks but lean toward more muted colors let me introduce Sea Green. A wonderful minty color that is chic and fashionable. It applied wonderfully although I used three coats to get to a completely opaque state.

Saint Germain Yellow Sun


Last but not least is Yellow Sun. It lives up to its name and is probably my favorite of the group. And I have never favored yellow polishes. But the vibrant sunny shade made me want to grab a glass of lemonade and enjoy summer. It did require three coats to be opaque, but I think that is quite typical of a yellow polish.

Once again I tested the polish to see if it would work with a stamper. It actually stamped quite well!


 
Bottom line: Saint Germain is definitely a polish I will be using in my manicure regime.

Saint Germain can be purchased at http://www.saintgermainmakeup.com and costs $4.95 per bottle. 

The product in this post was sent to me for review.  I was not paid for my review of this product and all opinions are my own.
