Loosely translated, Soigné means well presented/dressed, which is exactly how I would describe the Soigné range – lovely colours, creamy, easy formulas in beautifully presented packaging.
The Soigné Autumn 2015 collection couldn’t be more autumnal if it was covered in crispy leaves. It contains three shades that are deep, dirgy and unapologetically anti-summer, with not a hint of bright or pastel. Instead you get shades that perfectly tap-into the deeper, moodier shades of Autumn without heading too far into Winter territory.
The three shades in the collection are Crepuscule – a lovely, surprisingly warm, mid-toned grey that has a hint of beige to stop it going too cool It’s currently on my fingers and you can see it here; Feuillage – a red-leaning, earthy, dusky pink, and Couvert – a grey-leaning algae green that I think is likely to be the most popular of the three. Out of all three shades, I can’t think of any dupes which is pretty impressive – the shades are instead quite unique, interesting, original and perfectly on point for the season. This is my first real experience of the Soigné polishes and they really are a joy to use; they’re so creamy and spread easily, so if you’re a bit rubbish at painting your nails then you’ll definitely get on well with these polishes. One coat gives a clean, even finish, two ensures the colour really stands out. The collection is out now here – link – with each polish costing £11.
