Happy Monday! Let’s kick the week off in style with a quick peek at a gift set that’s out on counters today: Napoleon Perdis Dove Love Birds, a coordinated lip and nail set in a cosmetic bag featuring the artwork of Australian artist Felicia Aroney. There are five nail and lip colour sets available: Dove (white pearl), White Swan (lavender), Skylark (chocolate), Gold Finch (nude shimmer) and Flamingo (hot pink).
The Dove set consist of a clear gloss with silver/white sparkle and a frosted pearl nail polish. It’s possibly the most challenging set out of the five colour co-ords available in terms of wearability, given that white frost isn’t the first colour most folks would reach for when it comes to lip gloss. That being said, if you’re shopping around for a lil’ something for the lady or gent in your life who is a little more creative and less literal with their makeup, this is probably the way to go.
Dove Lip Gloss is a clear gloss with white/silver sparkle. It’s best used as a layering gloss to add shine and disco bling to an underlying colour; I’ve applied it over a fleshy pink lip stain and it looks charmingly sparkly. If worn over bare or nude-toned lips, however, it can look somewhat ashy. Layer, layer, layer!
Dove nail polish is a clean and creamy pearl polish that’s opaque in three thin coats. The formula was surprisingly nice for a frost, with very few brush strokes and no pulling or bald spots. The lacquer is a touch on the slow side when it comes to drying times, but a slick of fast drying top coat will sort that out.
