Japanese NOTD: Anna Sui - 201

I promised you a pretty swatch and here it is.

I bought this bottle of Anna Sui polish a few years ago duty-free before flying out of Japan.  I fell in love with the rose-themed packaging so bought this polish, a pink eyeshadow and a lipstick. 201 is a soft mauve lilac cream with a very subtle hint of multi-coloured micro-glitter - in bright light I could detect pink, silver, blue, green and orange.  More obvious in the bottle, the glitter becomes a subtle shimmer on the nail and dries to a smooth finish.  The other thing about this polish is the rose scent.  It permeated through my topcoat and my nails smelt subtly of roses for days - we're talking lasting through several rounds of hand washing and showers!  I remember my Anna Sui eyeshadow initially had a subtle rose scent too but that has faded over time.

This was beauty in a bottle and a very classic, wearable look for me.  I loved wearing it on my nails all last week.  I couldn't narrow down which pictures I wanted to post so here are quite a few...

What do you think about scented nail polish?

Enjoy your weekend.

    1. I love the rose shaped bottles, wish I had more *sigh*. I've seen new Anna Sui polish in dress shaped bottles - cute but expensive too I'm thinking...

    1. I bought this shade about 3 years ago. I don't know if it's still in the line?? Good luck, I do hope you find it because it's a very flattering colour. xoxo

  5. The shade and the pretty shimmer makes me weak and it's a bummer that we don't have this here
