I recently had the privilege of unboxing and playing with the worlds first and only luxury nail lacquer- MINE. I know what you might be thinking, this seems silly for nail polish, but I stand corrected, and so will you.
From conception to packaging the attention to detail is insane amazing. Conceived by jeweler and artist, Veleta Vancza, a pioneer in the industry unto herself; each polish comes wrapped by hand in a custom black wrapped box that is sealed by hand with a wax stamp; very old school prim and proper.
Once opened, the magic continues to reveal an incredible hand cut Austrian crystal bottle epitomizing the utmost of luxury. Even the bristles of the polish brush are completely custom and and are comprised of natural hair. To protect the bottle, each shade comes with a black satin jewelry pouch, perfect for travel, or when you take your bottle to your manicurist. Also included inside are two 24K Gold and 12K White Gold nail decals of the brands logo.
The polish itself is a force to be reckoned with. This is not your ordinary high end department store brand of polish. Hand poured, 5-free, richly and purely pigmented using only raw minerals, each shade require solely 1 coat (which is unheard of in the nail industry). Upon reading this in the instructions I myself was highly skeptical, but was proven wrong very quickly.
Yes luxury is not without a high price. MINE Luxury Nail Lacquer retails for $100-$500 depending on the valuable materials used, 24K Gold should be costly. However, this is for the individual who truly wants to relish in all of the finest luxuries life has to offer.
The three sumptuous shades I reviewed include:
Fine Silver Lacquer: a pretty pale metallic silver. Formula was non streaky, and very smooth and easy to use. This shade is made with pure silver .999 !! Retails for $175.
Pewter Lacquer: a gorgeous green hued light gray. This color is made with lead- free Pewter, and dries to a beautifully understated matte finish. If you desire a glossy sheen, you can apply top coat, or take a more natural approach, and use a burnishing buffer as the company recommends, to reveal a metallic sparkle. Retails for $125.
Graphite Lacquer: a glistening dark gunmetal. The darkest of the 3 shades, I was in shock when I saw how opaque and prefect the coverage was in a single coat. Retails for $100.
(All swatches shown here were just 1 coat, as recommended).
All in all I am very impressed and am definitely a fan of MINE Luxury Nail Lacquer, and would recommend it to nail enthusiasts who appreciate luxury, or even to give it as a gift to loved ones; it’s already wrapped. The presentation of the product is impeccable, and would proudly sit atop the most beautiful of vanities in ones home, or mansion, or apartment even.
