Remember that time I told you about a lovely new buzz TheFaceShop (aka The Face Shop) was creating here in Toronto? They have a packed little store down at The Eaton Centre and if you’re local and haven’t had a chance to pop in, you might wanna think about it. Why? Well, because they have polish. Lots and lots of polish!!
TheFaceShop Expert Nails Swatches & Review
Okay. I’m sold. 100% sold. I now want ALL the colors. This stuff is great. Let’s look!
I was only able to get my fingers in four shades but all four are simply smashing. They’re made in France. You know, like some of the best polish is. It's really nicely packaged too. And look at all those languages. Did I mention TheFaceShop originates in Korea? It does. It's owned by LG -- yes, the South Korean company that makes cel phones and appliances and things like that -- and LG also owns Fruits & Passion, which was a Canadian brand. Anyway, TheFaceShop started opening stores in malls across Canada about a year ago.
I love a pop-off cap. I also love this brush and polish combination. It puts stuff exactly where I want it. Nothing makes me happier than effortless painting.
TheFaceShop Expert Nails line also contains diamond powders – you know, like OPI DS used to.
It also dries nice and hard with a beautiful shine. But you want the best part? It applies like a dream. Everything you see here is two incredibly easy coats with no top coat.
I must have more. I must.
A couple weeks ago, TheFaceShop held an event. I ran into this really pretty lady there...
At said event, I was lucky enough to score a sweet, Leeanne Colley signature manicure using TheFaceShop Expert Nails 08. Negative space, baby - it's all the rage!
Leeanne likes TheFaceShop polishes too. I mean, how could she not. They've got three lines and a whack of shades. Keep your eyes peeled too 'cause I still have to work my way through the Trendy Shades. Here's a lazy-link for the Gel Touch Nails swatch & review post.
For more information on TheFaceShop, I encourage you to visit TheFaceShop-america.com and see all the awesomesauce stuff they’ve got. While there’s no polish on the website (yet), I’ve been told it’s coming! There are 10+ shades in the Expert Nails line and they retail for $9 CAD. You gonna find TheFaceShop store near you?
