Banana Republic Marimekko Collection Nail Polish Trio : Photos, Review, NOTD

I haven't tried any cosmetics from Banana Republic, in fact I never knew they were in to the beauty industry until I got this nail polish trio as a gift ! The packaging was really colorful and attractive, as colorful as the nail colors were. All the three colors in the Marimekko collection looked very bright and summery and I was really excited to try them on my nails. Scroll down to see more pictures and my NOTD.

Description

The Banana Republic Marimekko collection has three nail colors - Tomato Red, Pinkish Purple & Teal and these don't have any shade names. All three nail colors are non-creamy and glossy. The Tomato Red nail color is the most opaque shade of the three and just one coat would suffice. The Pinkish Purple one is the most transparent of the three and we need at least two coats to get an opaque finish. The most beautiful of the three is the Teal shade which is as opaque as the red one is but unfortunately it is streaky and getting an even finish was not an easy job at all. These nail colors does not have any strong fragrance and does not stain my nails too.

Verdict

Usually at least one nail color that comes in a collection / set would be a disappointment but all the three shades in this box are equally pretty. I would have loved the trio if only the teal shade wasn't this streaky. Since I have stocked up enough teals this isn't a huge disappointment. A beautiful collection of three gorgeous colors which is sadly a limited edition !

  1. I did not know there was a collaboration between Banana Republic and Marimekko which is a famous Finnish brand, I love few of their designs and being in Finland you can see them almost everywhere, the colors scream summers
