I was browsing blogs a couple of weeks ago when I spotted this polish on Samariums Swatches. Sarah had layered OPI's Care to Danse? on top and I thought the results were so pretty that I went on a hunt for both.
LEX Cosmetics are a pretty cool brand. The polishes cost $10 with anywhere from $1 to $3 being donated to a charity. What's more you can submit your idea for a polish, including a name and, if voted for, it could be created. As you might have guessed, Tuilleries is named after tulips (my favourite flower second only to peonies). The colour story is included on the website:
'First, tulips are one of the first signs that spring is really, truly, finally here! Second, they always remind me of my mother..... I would love to have a color that can represent her in every way: in beauty, in color, in her favorite things, and in her uniqueness. My color would be light pinkish-red with glass-like flecks of silver, red, pink, and orange within it to showcase the depth of both tulips and my mother.'
Tuilleries consists of red, white and purple glitters suspended in a sheer pink-mauve jelly. The forumla is great, application is easy and it is free from formaldehyde, DBP and toluene. Proceeds from the Tuilleries polish go to lung cancer research.
I must include a massive thank you to Jessica from Getting Cheeky, who helped me get my grubby mitts on this as unfortunately LEX don't ship to the UK.
