Alessandro nail polish is coming to UK! Review and swatches of Hot Chocolate shade

Hello lovelies,

I've learned very recently that a nail polish brand Alessandro is coming to United Kingdom! They will launch at the Professional Beauty Exhibition in London on 24/25th February 2013. Their nail polish range consists of 99 shades plus they offer nail and hand care. I have already tried and reviewed their hand cream and hand peeling, you can read about it here. They are big in the rest of the Europe, especially Germany so it was about time to come to UK!

Today I will show you one of their nail polishes called Hot Chocolate. I just couldn't help myself and do some pictures with a cup of yummy hot chocolate. Oh and I have to mention (it was a direct order :D) that my boyfriend helped me with these pictures and have been the photographer...I personally like the result a lot!

Alessandro Hot Chocolate - milk chocolate creme shade. The formula was very good with flawless application and great pigmentation. It was almost one coater but I have applied two coats for the perfect coverage. It dried rather average and very glossy. I still applied topcoat to seal the whole manicure. Despite it not being my type colour I was very pleasantly surprised with the formula and can't really say anything bad about it. I will definitely try more shads and let you know if the formula is consistent across the range.

Alessandro will be available to purchase not only at the Professional Beauty exhibition but also at selected salons and spas. One bottle has 10ml and will retail for under £10. For more information on products and range visit their UK website.

I'd also like to mention the ring I'm wearing. It is from Zalando UK e-shop selling wide range of women's clothes, beauty products, jewellery, handbags etc. I've already shown you few other rings here and here that come from Zalando as well as the Alessandro hand creme and peeling mentioned earlier in this post.

  1. Wow, that really does look like chocolate! Not really my kinda colour, but the formula sounds great, I love polishes that go on with almost one coat, and the finish looks lovely!

  19. Such awesome photography going on here! I totally need a cup of cocoa after these ^^ As for the brand, they've been around in Russia for some time already, but I've never tried their nail polish, however, their nail&hand care rocks! Especially the night hand mask, the smell is the most delicious, I've been drooling all iver it ever since my mom first bought it, and I've been on search of a perfume like it ever since *_*

  22. This looks so exactly like chocolate! I think it would be a great shade for doing sweet/chocolate themed nail art aswell. Your photos are lovely, I found your blog through Hellocotton and I'm now a follower. I love nail polish too, although I can not get mine to grow as long and perfect as yours! xx
