So last Saturday, I woke up to a beautiful MIA Laurens Paris sample box that was sent to me in the post. It was one of those moments where I felt like a proper little blogger…eeek. If you follow me on Instagram (what are you doing if you don’t) you would have seen me unboxing it all. And being a sucker for pretty packaging it was hard to contain my excitement, but for those of you who don’t follow me on Insta, it looked like this.
After opening my sample box, I could see straight away that MIA Laurens Paris pride themselves in offering unique nail varnishes. For those of you who read my blog regularly will know that I love ethical companies. And MIA Laurens Paris really promotes this by being 5 FREE, which means they never add harmful ingredients to their nail varnishes and are cruelty-free against animal testing.
So the colours that MIA Laurens Paris sent out to me, was Royal Ruby and Nomad Suede, along with a strengthening base coat and gel effect top coat. Both these on-trend colours looked perfect for the autumn season and I couldn’t wait to try them on.
So I started off with Nomad Suede. I don’t know about you but I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect nude colour. It’s difficult trying to strike a balance with nude nail varnishes, especially on Asian skin tones. But Nomad suede is a dreamy cool shade that has a nude look with a taupe undertone so it stands out but in a subtle way. And surprisingly one coat of Nomad Suede gives a great coverage. Excuse my wrinkly hands in the pic below…
So next up is Royal Ruby, for me red nails are an all time classic that you can’t go wrong with. There are so many shades of red out there but MIA Laurens Paris Royal Ruby is the perfect pigmented sophisticated red. The nail colour was really easy to apply and gave a consistent application across my nails. Royal Ruby is quite a glossy colour even without the top coat gel effect. In all honesty if applied carefully you could probably get away with just one coat. But I always like to do two coats just so the colour comes through.
Another great thing about MIA Laurens Paris is the crystal glass bottles. They are designed to prevent the nail colour from loosing its gloss so they don’t get all gooey over time.
With Christmas around the corner Royal Ruby is the perfect nail colour to add to my collection. And Nomad Suede is the perfect subtle nude colour for day to day wear. I totally love these hot colours and can’t wait to try out other trending colours from MIA Laurens Paris collection. I’ve got my eye on Dahlia Blossom and Sweet Tangerine next.
