Ready or not, the holidays are here! This is the first collection that’s landed on my desk that really has me thinking of the cold-weather holidays…it’s so sparkly and special! The LeChat Perfect Match Moon Goddess Collection for Winter 2017 features six shades – three glitters/shimmers and three cremes/crellies. I decided to showcase these polishes in three swatch manicures because I think the glitters play super well with the cremes – and I wanted to show how the glitters worked in gradients.
If you’re not familiar with the LeChat Perfect Match concept, you should be! For professionals, the collection is available in the Perfect Match soak-off gel formulation. Each gel polish comes packaged with a matching Dare to Wear traditional lacquer. In my experience, the gel and lacquer polishes look identical on the nail. For consumers who would like to get in on this gorgeous collection, you can purchase the Dare to Wear lacquers for $6.50 each on the LeChat website. Today, I’ll be sharing the LeChat Dare to Wear polishes with you!
All manicures in this post were done with Dare to Wear Base Coat and Dare to Wear Top Coat.
First up, I have paired Dare to Wear Eternal Midnight, a deep blue crelly (sort of a cross between a jelly and a cream) with Dare to Wear Illuminate, a classic holographic gold microglitter in a clear base. Eternal Midnight requires two coats for this opacity, which is great for a squishy looking crelly like this. I used three coats of Illuminate on my accent nail, and as you can see, it looks gorgeous when brushed on as a gradient. You could do a lot with Illuminate in nail art applications!
Dare to Wear Moonstone, a dusty sky blue creme, and Dare to Wear Lunar Love are a match made in heaven! I’ve been wearing this combo all week and I’m obsessed. Moonstone goes on creamy and easily in two coats, while I used three coats for my accent nail of Lunar Love (but you could get away with two coats!). Luna Love is this gorgeous mix of copper and pink microglitters which results in a lovely rose gold look. And since it’s in a clear base, it is perfect for gradients. I have a feeling I will be grabbing this shade a ton during the holidays.
Finally we have the combination of Dare to Wear Selene, a classic gray creme, and Dare to Wear Cresent Halo, a soft shimmering white. Selene could be a one coater, but I’ve used two here just to be safe. Cresent Halo is a mix of iridescent shimmers in a shimmery white base. It was surprisingly opaque in two coats and give a great icicle nail art look as a gradient. Beautiful.
LeChat Dare to Wear polishes have been one of my go-to brands lately and I’m really impressed. The base coat and top coat are fabulous too – I’ve been wearing Moonstone and Lunar Love for a week and barely even have tip wear. They get an A+ from me! The Perfect Match Moon Goddess Collection is available for purchase on lechatnails.com now! Which of these shades gets you in the holiday spirit?!
