Clarins 212

Clarins made some beautiful polishes, but they stopped being much more than a skin care company before I got in to polish, so I don't have a personal history with them.

There are a lot of their old polishes floating around eBay, various price points.

Clarins 212 was one of those polishes I thought I would never find; always have on my wish list and never fulfill. Suddenly it showed up again. Voila. I snapped it up. Fast.

Clarins 212 Violine Celeste

Two coats, no top coat.

Older chemistry, but the formula is pretty fabulous. I have to admit that it dried very well and wore well.

Its's a gorgeous violet purple packed with blue shimmer.

In my book, backup worthy.

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. Oooh, pretty! I only have two Clarins polishes, bought long after they were in stores.

    1. Thank you!

      It is so weird that they are all over eBay, but you don't hear much about them anymore.
