It doesn’t matter how many times we’ve given ourselves a mani—we always end up with stray polish all over our cuticles. Luckily, this German brand is out to make the whole affair easier. Considered one of the premier professional lacquer brands in Europe, alessandro crossed the ocean to bring us its rock-solid formula and specially designed bottle. With both bright, flashy colors and universally flattering neutrals, you’re bound to find a shade you love.
I purchased this polish in "blue nuit" thinking it would be a perfect blue-hued purple for fall. When I received the bottle, it was very dark, almost entirely purple. I get that they were trying to go for a blue night type look, but the swatch was misleading. When it dried, the color is essentially black with a slight hint of dark purple/navy.
To add to this, the bottle I received was covered in dust, with dust pieces embedded in the logo on the cap. The label on the back of the bottle was dusty, slightly browned, and fell off due to little to no adhesive left. It looked like it had been sitting on a shelf for way longer than the 18 month expiration labeled on the bottom.
I got the blue lagoon color, and I originally loved it because it's a color i'd never normally choose but looked promising. I loved the consistency and texture, applying the polish was a breeze. The problem was even with a base and top coat, the nail polish starting flaking off/chipping within a day!! I've used drugstore formulas that have lasted three times longer, very disappointed.1
I rec'd the New York Gray color. Very pretty color, however its very thick and went on very clumpy. =( So sad because its a great color!1
love this color! super cute! i have gotten a lot of compliments on my nail polish color! and the sample size is a good amount, it will last a while.1
I loved the Blue Lagoon color but unfortunately, the polish failed to last 24 hours on my nails. I would expect that from a cheaper polish but not at this price point.1
I got the blue color and liked it fine as it went on, but after a couple of hours I really didn't love the color. By the next day, it was chipping A LOT. I had to remove it by the third day.1
This polish chipped within hours of applying. Great color but disappointed, usually manicures last at least a day.1
I am a nail polish fanatic! I was super excited to try Alessandro's nail polish in Blue Lagoon when I received it in my monthly box. I applied Butter's base coat, two coats of Alessandro's, and Sephora's Quick Dry Top Coat. The next day the nail polished has already chipped. I am very disappointed in this product which is a pity b/c the colors are quite nice. This nail polish would be great to use if you only plan on wearing it for 1 day max.1
PRO: The color is vibrant and beautiful. It also dries very quickly.
CON: It is not durable AT ALL. HUGE chips within the 1st 24 hours.
I LOVED the Blue Lagoon color when I got it in my box this month. However, I very carefully did my nails and topcoats, and both hands were chipped and ugly by the next morning. I repainted them, and they were chipped within hours. Now, I wasn't digging around in the dirt or anything out of the ordinary. I was very disappointed in the quality of this polish.1
