Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer – #400 Four Hundred

GA Four Hundred opener

 

With the recent launch of the Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquers (read an earlier review here), there was one shade I knew I absolutely had to have: #400 Four Hundred, in the brand’s signature red colour. Lush, intense, and drop-dead sexy, this shade epitomizes what this beauty range is all about: decadent perfection. My detail-oriented/beauty-obsessed self is so, so happy …

GA Four Hundred

#400 Four Hundred  (CAD $32.00/6 ml 0.2 fl. oz) – The. Most. Perfect.Red.EVER. or as I prefer to think of it: “One red to rule them all” (intentionally shameless LOTR rip-off). Leaning neither too warm nor cold, neither blue based nor orange toned, this formula almost has mind-reading properties. Ok, well maybe not exactly, but it does bear a superior flow and density, applying in a completely self levelling manner, and leaving an ultra insane high gloss shine at the finish – adding top coat would be basically overkill. Best part: 100% non-staining upon removal. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat (for photo purposes only)

I do believe I may have found my Holy Grail red crème lacquer in Giorgio Armani’s #400 Four Hundred. I can’t praise this shade enough, especially where the formula & colour are concerned. The price, on the other hand, is less than desirable – especially when you factor in that it’s basically half the size of conventional bottles of nail polish. That being said, if there’s only one shade you pick up from this brand, then make this the ONE.

I bought this at Holt Renfrew, Montréal
