Francophiles will want to check out the new Paris-themed colors from Morgan Taylor. The Ooh La La collection for Spring/Summer 2015 blends a bit of whimsy with classic, feminine hues. Three full-coverage polishes are paired with a sparkling, pastel party glitter.
Formula & Application
Morgan Taylor nail polish is 5-Free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor). The tapered glass bottles have a weighty, substantial feel and the smooth plastic cap has a bit of a curve at the base which rests comfortably between fingers. The brush is long, flat, dense and medium in width. The bristles are firm but can fan out to give good coverage.
The three full-coverage colors glide smoothly on the nail yet they have a thick-with-pigment feel. I found that using a bigger bead of polish than usual, and floating the brush over the nail gave the best results. Doing so, will achieve opacity in two coats, though Postcards from Paris is almost a one-coater.
Morgan Taylor Ooh La La Swatches
Morgan Taylor Amour Colour Please is a punchy fuchsia with a fine blue shimmer that gently peeks out, as though it’s trapped just under the surface. This isn’t a dead-on match for Essie Too Taboo, but they have the same vibe.
Morgan Taylor Cancan We Dance? is unique in that is has a touch of coral to it but the cool blue shimmer lands it clearly on Team Pink. I don’t anything remotely like it which is why I’m showing it to the much warmer pink, Zoya Wendy, and peachy Cinderella shade, My Carriage Awaits.
Morgan Taylor Escar-Go To France is a clear-based glitter with multi-sized hex pieces in pastel pink and blue, deep rose, and holographic silver and pink. It’s a spring soiree in a bottle. I’m showing two coats over black, so you can see all the colors.
Morgan Taylor Postcards from Paris is a Tiffany-esque turquoise creme. It’s lighter and not quite as blue as the quintessential Tiffany lacquer, China Glaze For Audrey, and not as muted as Orly Gumdrop.
Bottom Line: Check my forehead, you guys. My aversion to pink is starting to wane. I’ve been really drawn to the bright fuchsia shades that have come out this season and Amour Colour Please is no exception. Of course, I haven’t gone completely off the rails. I’m a smitten kitten for Postcards from Paris, even though I have so many bottles of this type of color. I think it’s the amazing pigmentation that sucked me in. And Escar-Go looks fab over it. I’m wearing that combo now.
