JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque Review and Swatches

JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque Review and Swatches
JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque

JINsoon Nail Lacquer is a new line of polishes from celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi. Currently available at Sephora, the fledging brand includes 12 shades that all look great for fall and winter fashion.

Unfortunately, after trying JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque ($18), I'm in no hurry to try more polishes from this new brand. This lacquer isn't horrible but I don't think the quality merits the high price.

JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque is described as a "black red" so I was expecting something along the lines of a deep burgundy or oxblood shade. In reality, JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque is more of a blackened eggplant. 

One coat of JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque allows the purple tones to shine through but does not provide full coverage. I definitely needed a second coat. Sadly, two coats of JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque basically look black. Black nail polish is fine and all, but I was expecting a more unique color. It's not even that glossy either!

JINsoon touts the short dry time of its lacquers. I found the dry time to be average to slow (and ended up with smudgy nails!). Try Butter London or Julep for a much faster dry time.

On the bright side, the wear time of JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque was good. I got about 4-5 days before it started chipping badly. Then I had to remove it immediately because nothing looks worse than super dark, chipped nail polish!

Overall, I was disappointed by JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Risque. I expected something more impressive for the price. I think I will stick to Butter London or Julep for my nail polish splurges for the time being.
