Douglas 119 Sans contrefacon

Hi everyone!

Tonight I’ll show you a new to me colour. I mean I’ve never owned such a colour because I was firmly sure it would look horrible on me. I am glad to report I was actually wrong!

Douglas n. 119 Sans contrefaçon is a salmony nude creme that is perfectly opaque in two coats. It’s so glossy and easy to paint on, my only issue is the brush that is larger than my pinkie nail!

Two coats, no top coat.

Ciao a tutti!

Stasera vi mostro un colore nuovo per me. Nuovo nel senso che sono sempre stata convinta che mi stesse malissimo quindi ho sempre evitato di comprare colori come questo. Sono felice di annunciarvi che mi sbagliavo!

Douglas n. 119 Sans contrefaçon è una lacca nude-salmone, perfettamente coprente in due passate. Si stende perfettamente e asciuga molto lucido. Il mio unico problema è stato il pennello, che è più largo dell’unghia del mio mignolo!

Due passate senza top coat.

I have a peachy undertone. For this reason salmony and peach pastel shades usually look awful on me. I don’t know what’s in this colour that is different. Maybe a tiny drop of brown? No clue. But fact is I loved it on myself. It looks so elegant and classy and versatile! It’s also a perfect base for a lot of different nail arts.

Douglas is the exclusive brand by German drugstores  Douglas btw, which you can find in several European countries. These bottles are mini sized (5ml) and retail for about 4,00€ each.

Do you like neutral shades like this? Have you ever had any colour you thought it would look bad on you and ended up surprising you?

Premetto che io ho un sottotono pesca, per questo motivo i colori salmone, pesca e compagnia bella di solito mi stanno malissimo. Io non lo so cos’abbia questo smalto di particolare, forse un po’ di marrone? Fatto sta che l’ho adorato su di me. E’ elegante, di classe ed estremamente versatile. Poi è anche una base perfetta per un’infinità di nail art.

Douglas come potete immaginare è il marchio esclusivo delle omonime profumerie. Le boccette di smalto contengono 5ml e costano 3,95€.

Vi piacciono i colori neutri come questo? E avete un colore che vi ha piacevolmente sorpreso dopo averlo snobbato per lungo tempo?

  1. Ohhh I simply love this on your nails! I can relate, its not the sort of shade that grabs me if I am in a store but seeing it on the nail.... glossy, gorgeous! To answer the question you left me on my blog I really love Lady Venezia from the three polishes I've been lucky to try! I think they were very mysterious in the sense that they can look so different with different finishes! I'd be keen to try more after those three - always a good sign :) xx

  2. You are so right! It looks so versatile on your nails. I just loved it, and it's opaque in just two coats, which is another good thing, as being nude shade it generally demands 3 or sometimes 4 coats to get that perfect opacity. And yes, my skintone is whitish and I was very very sure that nudes are not for me, but when I tried one nude shade, it looked pretty awesome, and that has given me a confidence to wear more nude shades.. ;-) )lol

    1. I had a hard time finding the nude for me! This one isn't actually a real nude on me, it's way too dark for me to call it that way. Maybe a tan? A dusty salmon? No clue, but whatever, it really surprised me!

  4. It looks elegant indeed. I think I have something similar, maybe a little bit more brown tones and I used it just once because I thought it does not mach my skin tone.

    1. That's a shame, right? Back when I was looking for the perfect nude I did try a lot of shades that ended up not being the one and all of them are sitting there unused.

  6. Io fingo di non badare al mio sottotono altrimenti finirei col mettere ben pochi smalti, però dagli azzurri sto lontana come la peste perché è impossibile riuscire a portarli senza che nessuno mi chieda come sta Gomez... Vabbè, detto questo, è uno smalto fantastico, trovo sia un colore davvero molto elegante

    1. Ahah, a me di quello che dicono gli altri importa poco! E' che quando uno smalto mi sta male... mi sta proprio male! E non sono a mio agio!

    1. That was a minor problem fortunately! I had to do some extra cleanup but I must say it was totally worth it!

  8. I am the same way with peach tones, most of them look awefully dirty on me. This one looks gorgeous on you!

  9. Eeeeh in effetti questo colore potrebbe sbattere un po' pure su di me che ho sottotono rosa porcello, sarebbe proprio da vedere dal vivo!

  10. Most of these colours would look awful on me too, but this one might be different, considering how stunning it is on you!

  11. I have a polish in this shade range that I've yet to try cause I'm not sure how it'll look. I'll have to finally give it a try.
