Red Carpet Manicure | Off To The Premiere | AW19 Gel Polish Collection
Here’s the full Red Carpet Manicure Off To The Premiere collection for AW19. It’s a gorgeous collection of six gel polishes in a range of autumnal and winter colours.
I have mainly used two coats for each of these polishes. They all had a great coverage with just those two coats, except for the blue, Designer & Demure, which needed three.
First up is my favourite of the six, Lavish & Luxurious. It’s a mid-toned mauve, with a slight duskiness to it. Just beautiful. I will be wearing this one a lot.
Next is Couture Chic. This is a grey polish, although it seems my photos give it a slight green hue, which isn’t representative of the polish at all.
Next is a beautiful blue, Designer & Demure. It’s dark, but not dark enough to be a navy. It reminds me so much of the fabulous cobalt blues I have used for years that come from the regular polish world – polishes like Nails Inc Baker Street and Barry M Damson. It’s perhaps not as bright as either, but it’s certainly the closest I have in a gel polish. While curing, it was pink under the lamp, which was a weird thing to see. It also shrank from edges a little before curing, so I had to do one nail at a time. This was also the only polish that took three coats for me to be satisfied with the coverage.
What Autumn/Winter collection would be complete without a classic deep red. This one is Gowning Achievement. It’s a perfect rich autumnal colour, reminiscent of autumn leaves.
The penultimate polish is Stole The Show, a salmon pink / coral colour. This isn’t classically autumnal, but I think it goes so well with the rest of the collection. While it seems more spring-like, I can see why they included it as it complements the other colours well.
Finally, the lightest colour of all, VIP Treatment. This is a peachy nude colour that again seems more in keeping with a spring or summer collection, but the nude trend is so strong that I think manufacturers can’t help but have to include one in an autumn winter collection. This looked really classy on and will be one of my year-round staples.
Here’s a reminder of the full Off To The Premiere collection. I think it’s a clever compilation of complementary colours (I didn’t set out to make that sentence so alliterative!)
You can buy Red Carpet Manicure nail polishes, including the six in the Off To The Premiere collection, from the Red Carpet Manicure website (UK link) or from Amazon. If you’re a Prime subscriber, they’re the same price (£12.95 each at time of publication), but you won’t pay delivery.
