Manicure Monday - Labiotte Chateau Labiotte Wine Gel Nail in Nebbiolo Red

I am such a sucker for cute packaging and Labiotte really knows how to get me - seriously wine bottle packaging?! It's so adorable - I already reviewed the lip tint last year and it's too cute!

I purchased this myself

I want to pick up more from this line and as a wine lover myself, I pretty much need too try everything out! I was excited to see a nail polish line that claims to be a gel polish - I love a good long wearing formula as I'm pretty rough to my hands and nails all week! 


So, I picked up one on a big YesStyle order! They also have lipsticks, mascara and eyeshadows in the same line too!

Labiotte - Chateau Labiotte Wine Gel Nail in RD02 in Nebbiolo Red ~ $10.90 CAN. LABIOTTE Chateau Labiotte Wine Gel Nail is a high-gloss, highly-pigmented and long-lasting hybrid gel nail polish that easily completes gel nails without UV or LED lamp.
A quick drying, easy-to-use gel nail polish in LABIOTTE's signature wine bottle design that decorates your nail with vivid and ultra glossy colors last for long.

I love the wine bottle polish and this comes in 6 shades of wine reds and nudes! I was really excited to try this; but, unfortunately this polish didn't quite work for me. I found it to be a really thin formula with a hard to use brush - I ended up with polish all out of the edges (it felt like my first time painting nails, and it was very frustrating to use - it may have something to do with the handle shape too). I applied two coats and it was opaque, but very thin. It didn't feel like a gel formula that would have been thicker.

You can see my clean up wasn't amazing with this formula, because there was so much of it outside my nail! And, this was supposed to be a long wearing formula - I found that it chipped around my nail edges and tips within a couple of days and by the end of the week it was looking pretty bad, so it didn't feel like a gel formula! 

The shade itself is beautiful and if it was marketed as a "gel polish" it would have been better for the formula! I'm still going to try and make it work in future manis, but it wasn't great on it's own for me!

  1. I get sucked in my cute packaging as well, and I love the shape of this bottle (pun intended)! It sucks that it didn't deliver on the formula though, because the colour is GORGEOUS!

    1. I wish the formula was better too and I can't get rid of it because the shade is so pretty!
