Sally Hansen’s Rodarte Inspired Shades

Inspired by Rodarte

THE DESIGNERS

Sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy launched Rodarte in 2005 and quickly became known as the go-to house for couture, known for their intricate hand stitching and romantic details.  They have won numerous fashion awards such as the 2008 CFDA Swarovski Emerging Womenswear Designer award and the 2008 Swiss Textiles Award.  Leading ladies like Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Kirsten Dunst, Michelle Obama, Chloe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Elle Fanning, and Reese Witherspoon have all worn Rodarte’s idiosyncratic yet sophisticated styles. 

THE PARTNERSHIP

For the fifth season in a row, Rodarte has once again turned to nail color authority Sally Hansen to create three limited edition Complete Salon Manicure nail polish colors. The designers’ highly anticipated Fall 2015 Collection served as a muse for Sally Hansen’s nail color creations. The Fall 2015 nails are inspired by translucent color and the subtlety of watercolors.

MY REVIEW

The color of each three shades is subtle; much like the dresses the designers create, the colors are light and understated.

The polish distributes evenly on the nail, and I have found that each coat dries quickly. My nails went a full day before they began to chip, which is pretty good in my book (my nails chip very easily). There is also no need for a top coat with this polish since it has a shiny finish. Beige Glass is probably my favorite of the three since it is a calm taupe color that matches well with any fall outfit.

PROS

  • Dries quickly
  • Distributes evenly
  • Calm colors match easily with outfits
  • No need for a top coat

CONS

  • None

If you are looking for a subtle nail color this fall, these shades are great!
