I recently picked up a few new shades of LeChat Perfect Match for use in the salon. I realized that I was lacking in neutrals that have matching lacquers. Most of my clients love to match their toes with their fingernails, and the LeChat brand is one of my favorite gel/lacquer duos.
All of the swatches in today’s post show two coats of color. I’ve used all of these colors on clients and they all look great on just about every skin tone.
Fog City is a light blue-toned grey cream.
is a taupe-leaning grey cream.
is a very pretty brown-leaning taupe cream.
And Just Breathe
is a very pale, off-white cream. I applied this color on a client yesterday and had some issues with shrinkage at the tips. It wasn’t obvious after the first coat because the color was so light, but after applying two I could really see the visible tips. I ended up doing a very thin third coat that capped the tips really well and had my client flash cure each finger to keep the polish from pulling back from the tips. I love the color, but that was a PITA! :) My bottle may just need a good shake, so I’ll have to do that and try it again.
I also picked up one other color called Mi Amour
that’s a pink-toned neutral. I haven’t swatched or used it yet, but it looks really pretty and I can’t wait to try it!
