Lancome Midnight Glam Nail Polish

Happy Tuesday folks. I won this polish last month in a contest I entered and was highly excited. You see, this is only the third thing in my entire life I have ever won! The first was a CUP OF LEMONADE at a yelling/singing contest (the hokey pokey) at a roller rink when I was like 10. How lame is that? The second was just a couple years ago at work, I won third place in the animal category of a photo contest. And now this. I was super excited about this color from what I saw online, but I have to say I am disappointed after trying it out. Pics taken in sun with no top coat.


Midnight Glam
The color just turned out to be kind of anti-climactic to me for some reason. Yes it’s a shimmery midnight blue with light blue particles throughout. But it just doesn’t *wow* me at all. Not to mention my issues with the handle. More on that below. This was two coats.

You can see how short the handle is here. Isn’t this insane? I mean it was practically impossible to get it on my nails without getting it all over the place because the handle is so stumpy! Horrific design and I have to say this might be why I didn’t like the color as much. I can say with confidence I wouldn’t buy any Lancome nail polish with this design ever, so they better get on it and re-do their design! What do you think, have you ever used Lancome’s polish and did you have issues with their handle?

Vamp it up!

    The color is very pretty. I have never purchased a lancome polish. From looking at that stubby brush I feel the sameway as you. It’s too short. I don’t think I will be purchasing any lancome polish. Thanks for sharing

    The color is beautiful on you.

    The handle is a sad piece of equipment. I’ve seen them too long (Hello, Hot Topic polish) but never so diminished. The big square on the end doesn’t help either.

    I hate using mini bottles for this same reason -the stumpy handle. I have some mini lippmann’s that drive me crazy that i don’t use them! Laura Mercier also has a similarly crappy bottle design.

    I actually have one of these and strangely, I find the shorter handle easier to control. I must be the only one then..:)

    Hi Bikyee,

    I like my handles neither too short or too long, both are just too hard to control for me!

    Congrats on the score, but boo for the crappy handle. What was Lancome thinking?

    Hi Atomica,

    I know, I never understand why companies do this kind of thing. There is no way they tested that brush against a “normal” length one and though, wow this is so much easier to apply! No way.
