Laura Mercier Nail Lacquer Reckless & Attitude from New Attitude Summer 2014 Collection, Review & Swatches

Being a real purple/violet/lilac/orchid fan, 2014 so far has been a blessing for me. Many lovely nail polishes from Spring and Summer releases quickly became my all time favourite. Laura Mercier's two nail polishes from their Summer Collection New Attitude are no exception.

If you like light baby blue on nails, Attitude is as light as it gets. It is almost a blue toned white cream, which will certainly look even better once I get my summer tan. It is hard to get cream whites right so I was expecting Attitude to be streaky and was very surprised to find out that it wasn't. The consistency was a little too thick for my liking but it applied good, was opaque and smooth after two coats. Promo images look like as if both of these shades have some shimmer but I found them to be plain cream on the nails. Below swatches are taken with two coats and without a top coat.

Reckless is my favourite among the two, as well as one of my favorite nail polishes from this summer. Unfortunately some of the nail polish released with the name of "lilac" or "orchid" turned out to be rather tones of pink. If you are looking for a real lilac, like me, Reckless fits the bill. I wore Reckless for a week and didn't get tired of it (which is an extremely rare situation!). The longevity was also great, as well as the consistency which is neither thick or thin and opaque in two coats.

Final thoughts: Two lovely nail polishes from Laura Mercier for this summer. Attitude will accentuate your sun kissed skin in summer while Reckless will speak to the true lilac lovers. Lovely formula, great staying power. These are now available around the globe.

Are you enjoying lilac named pinks this summer or would you rather get a true lilac for your money? Any one out there from #teampurple? ;-)

  1. These both look very pretty but Attitude is reminding me a lot of Dior's Spring release, Porcelain, which I have already. I'm a true lilac lover - it always amazes me that it isn't a shade that is captured in nail colour a lot. I'm looking forward to Chanel's Sweet Lilac (still not out in the UK!) and may wait to compare the two although this looks 'bluer' or as you say a truer lilac so maybe both will be justified!

    1. Hi,
      I know what you mean about not being able to find a true lilac. When I find one, I get it immediately lol. Dior Porcelaine is more blue than Attitude, which is almost a white with blue tingle. I got Chanel Summer already and wearing sweet lilac today but this one is unfortunately nothing like lilac, it is more of a pink than anything else. On me it looks like an old rosy nudy shade. I certainly like Reckless more :-)

    1. Hi Jen,
      There is a new shade in Essie summer collection, very close to mint Candy but with silver sheen, I just got it today, you might enjoy it too. By the way Attitude is more blue and white, so you can enjoy that one too.

  4. Reckless is gorgeous!! Sadly, I haven't seen any of LM's nail polishes in Taiwan. Shame, since she offers some really pretty colours.

    1. Hi, well, yes they offer nice colors but they don't have any colors on their permanent range (all limited) so I have to stalk them to be able to get one.
