Guerlain Sulfurous Nail Lacquer
Guerlain Sulfurous Nail Lacquer

Guerlain Sulfurous Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, artificial black with particles of violet.” It’s a dark, plummy black-brown with burgundy and violet shimmer and a slightly metallic finish. Urban Decay Wrecked (LE) is a cream finish. MAC Blueblood (LE, $16.00) is also a cream. Chanel Western Light (LE, $27.00) is darker, less shimmery. Cult Nails Enigmatic (LE, $12.00) is lighter, purpler. China Glaze Jungle Queen (LE, $8.00) is lighter, purpler. See comparison swatches.

There were slight visible brush strokes to the resulting finish, though they were not noticeable from afar–only up-close and under a lot of light. It had fairly good shine without a top coat, and two coats yielded fully opaque color.  The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it spread evenly and easily without pooling along the edges.  Guerlain’s lacquer has a larger, wider brush, which works really well for spreading one coat across the entire nail in one stroke (which does help to minimize unevenness and streaking).  I wasn’t able to come up with a really great dupe for this, so I definitely loved adding something more unique to my stash, and the only negative was that there were a few visible brush strokes.

P.S. — This isn’t yet online (that I could find) but should pop up online soon.

    this looks a lot like a polish I have by Maybelline called Wine and Dined from their Colorshow line, only the Maybelline has more of a plummy wine duochrome to it.

  2. This is perfect for fall!

  3. That’s a beautiful color for the season. I love how the polish shimmers!

  4. Love it! Looks like chocolate plum

    Ooooh this is a beautiful color….I am just recently getting into painting my nails but I am enjoying looking into polishes.

  6. zainab

    Pretty colour, awful name. Maybe it means something different in French?

  7. Barbara

    Gorgeous! I’ll definitely have to consider adding this to my already too big collection of polishes.

  8. Jess

    Kinda reminds me of a slightly browner version of Bobbi Brown Twilight. Pretty colour for fall!

  9. Alizée

    This polish reminds me of when I “salvaged” a very old and crappy makeup palette by using the pigment in a clear nail polish bottle. Came up in a slightly grayer version than this!

  10. I am absolutely loving this shade!!!

  11. Very pretty, reminds me of China Glaze’s Bogie, not exactly but close enough IMO.

  12. Man, that’s nice!

  13. Linda

    Kind of an indefinable sort of color (although you did a very good job!) It’s ‘cool’, I like it! Thanks for showing us, I was hoping you would! I was wondering how this UV topcoat was, too.

    • No problem, Linda!

      I have the UV top coat, but I’m not familiar with UV top coats and need to do more research (I’m not sure if you need special light?).

  14. HNNNARGH I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE

  15. Katherine

    It looks like a frosty version of OPI Midnight in Moscow, which is one of my favorites.

  16. Isabell

    I would never spend $23 on a nail polish, but I love the name!

  17. JAIME JAI'M

    I habon a veeeery similar color by opi cslled muir muir on the wall

  18. MLuna

    I saw this polish and was loving it. I then stepped into Ulta and my store has a new nail polish line I haven’t seen before called SPARITUAL. The color Hypnotic shimmer looks exactly like this one for $12. When I put them together it was hard to see a difference!
