Guerlain 903 nuit merveilleuse review swatches

It’s that time of the year when some of the best beauty and nail polish collections arrive one after another. Christmas, oh yeah! The first one I’d like to show you is – Guerlain 903 Nuit Merveilleuse. It’s a limited edition nail colour from the Guerlain Neiges & Merveilles Holiday 2015 make-up range. Sparkling yet elegant, this shimmering electric purple nail polish lives up to it’s name “Nuit merveilleuse” (Marvellous Night).

I can already see myself wearing a long sparkling gown with champagne in my hand cheering to the clock counting twelve. Not that I’m actually going to do that (ie. the long sparkling gown bit) but this polish is capable of evoking dreams!

Here’s our full review…


Formula: cruelty-free and 5-free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor).

Brush: This nail polish features a wide and extra-flat brush that follows the shape of the nail. Very easy to use!

Application: At first it appears a bit sheer but becomes fully opaque with a second coat (as pictured).

Finish: Guerlain Nuit Merveilleuse is a very glossy medium-dark, violet purple with multi-colored micro flakes (pink, blue and light purple). It looks almost like a metallic polish and the shimmer is so intense that it shines in the shade.

Wearability: It lasted for 6 days chip-free with a top coat!

Nail Art: Fast drying and great for gradient nails or as a base for any nail art. Also, it looks unreal mattified (photos below).

Overall Impression: Guerlain 903 Nuit Merveilleuse is a one of a kind bright purple nail polish. With a shimmering elegance, it’s the perfect choice for the most sparkling night of the year. The fantastic formula and super longevity make it a must-buy. Just remember, it’s also a limited edition so buy now or cry later!
