Lancome and stylist L’Wren Scott have released two mini nail polishes for the holiday collection in Le Rouge L'Wren 020 (deep sparkling red) and Le Gris L'Wren 021 (shimmery steel blue-grey). Both are indeed swoon-worthy and I opted for the red one today since there's nothing like a good red nail polish to make a woman feel like a woman.
Le Rouge L'Wren is a deep wine red with tiny red micro-sparkles that are slightly brighter than the base. From arm's length you can't really see the shimmer but the finish is glossy and the red is uber sophisticated. It has just the right amount of red to prevent it from being too vampy. I know I have similar shades in my nail polish stash - I just haven't pulled any to compare. Off the top of my head I don't think any have the same red sparkle quality. Now if I could only find a lipgloss the same color ...
The holiday nail polishes ($14.50 for 6 ml) come in a mini version of the full size ($18 for 10 ml). It has the same style packaging but comes with a black twist off cap instead of silver. They are too cute!

I did get the blue-grey one too. That color will be reviewed soon.
