Lancôme Juicy Vernis 27

Lancôme Juicy Vernis 27 is a gorgeous pink-nude shimmer. I thought the polish had "gone bad" because there was some yellow discoloring in the bottle. I mistakenly wrote in yesterday's post that the bottle was plastic - it isn't. The bottle is glass but the white top is a bit of a flimsy plastic. Anyways, the color is very neutral, appropriate for work (which is not typically my kind of polish!) I have an interview at a hospital today to volunteer for the semester so I wanted an "appropriate" nail polish! I had to get up very early for the PPD test (tuberculosis test)... I HATE NEEDLES!

(Notice that discoloration? It doesn't effect the color though)

I'm not sure (don't quote me on this), but I think the polish is supposed to be "fragranced" of some sort. It has an odd, old flower-y perfume smell to it and I hate it!! Even after washing my hands numerous times, it still smells. Maybe it's also because it is an older nail polish; I feel like all older nail polishes smell more strongly than the newer ones today.

Update (11:08 a.m.): The PPD test went well! Barely felt a thing and the nurse was super nice. However, the person who was supposed to be interviewing me was sick and didn't show up; I'll have to drag my butt up early again for a rescheduled interview later this week I suppose. Anyways, I cannot STAND this nail polish anymore! I love the "mannequin hand" look it has and it is very flattering on me, but the smell is driving me crazy. I can't wait to get home from work and take off this darn thing!


  1. I like those kind of soft colors and this one is really good. I didn't know that Lancome has polishes.

  2. Emy - I agree! I like this nude color :) love your blog by the way!

  3. The weird smell you're complaining about is the whole reason the Juicy Vernis nail glosses are so popular. They're made to smell like honey, raspberry, or strawberry-which many people prefer to the stinky odor of average nail polish. Perhaps you should research a little more before you post
