Last week I showed you one of the new Seche nail lacquers - a neutral, work friendly pink called Memoire. This is another colour from the new collection - Aristocrat is described as a deep plum shimmer. Whilst the description is accurate, it doesn't quite go far enough - there's more than just plum in there. In some lights it looks deep pewter, in others it looks aubergine - this isn't a duochrome shade, but it does look different in different lights. It's really unusual - I don't have any other polish in my collection that is anywhere near a dupe for this.
Unlike Memoire, Aristocrat is a definite one coater - I did consider adding a second coat, but it's perfectly opaque in one. Also unlike Memoire, it's reasonably easy to apply - medium thickness with good spreadability. After a bit of topcoat, it looks gloriously shiny, with a mirror like perfect smoothness.
Can you tell that I really rather like this one?
Find it at Nails By Mail, where it'll cost you £9.95.
