The ALU Archives focuses on older, beloved shades from the All Lacquered Up stash.
A sweet reader, Faye, emailed me quite some time ago about how she visited the L’oreal Company Store and spotted two GREEN Shu Uemura nail polishes that I just had to have. I was floored and flattered that she thought of me and was kind enough to send them my way. The generosity of strangers, I tell you!
One of the polishes is a dark green creme a la NARS Zulu and the other is such a unique hue, words fail me to describe it. Take a peek after the jump!
I tried my first Shu polish (sounds like I’m saying shoe polish) last year when I picked up their gorgeous fall shade during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I was instantly sucked in by the formula and pigment packed color. By the time I got my hands on Tanzanite Aquarium from the holiday collection I was hooked. The formula is flawless and they really pile on the glitz and glamour.
So why am I seeing the nail polish listed in the discontinued section of the Shu Uemura website?? Say it isn’t so Shu!!! Just when I found you, you leave me? What the H people?
Here’s hoping that by posting this glorious green shimmer we can generate grassroots support for a revival of the nail polish line. This beauty is named P665, so boring. She deserves a much more creative moniker, no? The silver shimmer and muted, spring green hue make this one a winner in my book. I haven’t come across another polish anything like it.
Sun (we have sun in the CLE today, yay!)
So where are my fellow Shu polish fans? Do you have any favorite shades you just can’t live without? Anyone else disappointed to hear the line is in the DC’d bin?
