Welcome again to another installment of Luxe Friday and this is a special one! Can we really get any more Luxe than a collaboration with Marchesa and Revlon. I want to express my excitement and pure joy when I was at CVS and saw these appliqués, the biggest smile came upon my face. I am the Biggest Fan of Marchesa and of Georgina Chapman. I think she is a woman to look up to in so many ways. If I met her, I would probably be speechless. I have met a few famous people in my life and I don't get "starstruck". When I look up to somebody and admire them, it's a whole different story. When her line "Pearl by Georgina Chapman of Marchesa" first came to JCPenny, I was so thrilled. I was the first one there when it launched trying on everything, taking pictures and of course buying many wonderful outfits. I am going to be wearing one of the Blazer/Shorts Combination Suits this weekend, so stay tuned for my First Fashion Blog including that outfit. Now on to the Nail Art.

Here is the Skinny on the Nail Art from Revlon:

This limited edition collection of intricate, textured nail appliques is inspired by couture house Marchesa’s signature designs.
Available in 8 red-carpet ready shades at Walgreens, CVS, and select retailers nationwide through Fall 2013.

1. Select the size that best fits nail.
2. Applique should not touch skin or cuticle. Press applique firmly over entire surface of nail.
3. Fold remaining applique over natural tip and remove excess material by filing in a sideways motion in one direction.

The Eight Shades:


    Marchesa’s elegant eveningwear, inspired by vintage silhouettes with a modern aesthetic was co-founded by Georgina Chapman and Kere Craig in 2004. The company’s namesake and muse is the noted eccentric European style icon, Marchesa Luisa Casati. With Casati’s vision of fashion meets art in mind, Chapman has paired her expertise in design and draping to craft collections with both distinctive and iconic style.
    British natives Chapman and Craig met at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Chapman, a 2001 graduate of the Wimbledon School of Art, began her career as a costume designer. Craig graduated from Brighton Art College in 2000 and subsequently focused on print and embroidery design.

    "When we were first approached by Revlon about a potential collaboration, Keren and I were really excited about the chance to partner with an iconic brand that believes, as we do, in making a woman feel beautiful while remaining true to herself. Through Revlon’s incredible global reach, we will be able to bring a little piece of Marchesa to women around the world," said Georgina Chapman, Marchesa Co-Founder and Designer.

    Here are the Three Nail Art Designs that I purchased:


    I only just recently purchased the nail art so I have only worn "Royal Burgundy" for about a day. So far they have stayed on perfectly and have not peeled or chipped at all. I have worn many nail art stickers that have pealed within hours so this is a good sign. I cannot wait to show them off this weekend. I also find the designs to be so beautiful that I almost do not want to wear the rest. I already know that I am going to have to go and buy more, because these designs are just way to beautiful to only wear once. This collaboration is very special to me and I want to experience it as much as I can.

    Easy to Apply Directions on Back.
    I had absolutely no problem following the easy to apply directions on the back of the box. It even comes with a mini nail file, buffer and cuticle stick. I did try out both and they worked great! Including these items, make these appliqués so travel friendly.

    Comes with 18 Appliques in Various Sizes to Fit Your Nails.
    Also Includes Mini File, Buffer, and Cuticle Stick.
    Perfect for Traveling.
    Oh My! My Exact Revlon by Marchesa Appliqués
    spotted in my InStyle Magazine's September Fall Fashion Issue.
    Soooo Marchesa!
    Final Thoughts:

    These Nail Art 3d Jewel Appliqués are so beautiful, but I would not expect anything less from Marchesa. How fabulous is it to say that you are wearing Marchesa on your nails. I honestly think these are the most beautiful nail art designs that I have ever seen. I really hope that they do a winter collection. I hope that you enjoyed this post and I hope that you dress up your nails with a little Marchesa soon.


    I wanted to let you know that the Appliques lasted me a full week. I wore them a full 7 days before I removed them. I could of probably even wore them a few more days. They were just beginning to slightly chip at the top edge, where I am the roughest with my nails. I am very impressed with how long they lasted and the quality from beginning to end. They were also very easy to remove, I grabbed an edge of the appliqué and pealed them off. That was it! I also wanted to mention the numerous compliments that I received on them, but I wasn't suprised. I can't wait to wear another design!
