Pretty & Polished ‘Louis Louis.’

Pretty & Polished’s ‘Louis Louis’ is from their latest collection, ‘Save The Dauphine’ and is based off King Louis XVI. Now, I don’t know a lot about French history, but I do know a regal looking polish when I see it. And I’m seeing it right now. On my fingertips.

Within two coats, this polish is opaque. It’s a gorgeous antiqued gold, with hints of red and blue glinting through like rubies and sapphires. I adored it the minute I put it on – it’s gorgeous in low light, sunlight – just stunning overall. Pure regalia.

The deep, rich gold makes it complimentary on many skin types, and the choice of glitter makes it truly unique and striking. Additionally, I’ve worn it for two days now with absolutely no chipping or tip wear, even when I was struggling to get a key off my key ring (I hate those little metal things!).

I googled Louis XVI just to try and see how he inspired this polish. Maybe it’s just me getting a little lacquer nerdy right now, but I think it’s so cool to see what elements of his character were brought to life in this polish! I see it in the hues, the boldness of the color – how do you all think Pretty & Polished was inspired?

You can find Pretty & Polished products at their personal website or their etsy store.
