Nail Polish: Lise Watier Ȋle Déserte

I discovered my new fave summer neutral nail colour. Behold Lise Watier Ȋle Déserte:

Note the tiny microflecks of gold, red and green within the bronze fluid. I'm in love!

Like Fun in the Sun, Ȋle Déserte has a flawless application that goes on smoothly and easily in two thin coats. I was very pleasantly surprised, as pale shimmery metallics usually require at least three. Well done, Lise Watier!

I applied my usual Sally Hansen base coat and Seche Vite top coat, and the polish wear has been going strong all week. There's not a chip or a scratch in sight. I imagine this colour will look gorgeous with glowy tanned skin and all-white summer outfit. It's also much more interesting than the usual yellow-gold tone.

Usually I have to try to coordinate my clothing with whatever nail colour I have on at the moment, but this week I didn't have to worry about clashing. It's been an exhausting week (it's only Wed!) and I don't have the time or energy to do my nails until the weekend, so I'm lucky to have chosen this flatter-everything shade.

For us lucky Canadians, this nail polish can be found for $12 at your nearest Lise Watier counter at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. I'm thinking of getting a back-up for the first time... I love it that much.

What's your summer neutral pick and when was the last time you bought a back-up?


  1. *GROAN* It's so beautiful! It sort of reminds me of my very favorite nail polish, Dior Gold Revolution, except this one is bronzier and the Dior is a weird mix of silver and gold.

  2. Sorry, Carrie! I hate teasing you with this but it's too good not to share!

  3. Oooohhhh.....that's a beaut! I love how "antique-y" it looks; I just hate blingy golds, but this one's so pretty...looks great on you Liz!

  4. Will be up on the Lise Watier e-Boutique shortly!

  5. @Eugenia - Thanks! Antique-y is a nice way of putting it. :D

    @Karine - Thanks for the heads up!

  6. I'm normally not a fan of bronze/gold polish but this one's gorgeous! Your nails are lovely too!

  7. Hooray for flattering with everything shades! Turned out gorgeous!
