The Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Collection Nail Lacquers Sure Look Pretty in Pastel

Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Collection

There’s something very soothing about these six new Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquers from the limited edition Bouquet Collection, isn’t there? How they look all pastel and springy, like a row of Jordan Almonds, Easter eggs or frosted mini-cupcakes…



Yum.

I’m wearing three coats in the swatches below (because they looked a little streaky after two).

P.S. For my fellow rom-com fans, have you seen Like Crazy? I was in the mood for something mellow and romantic yesterday, and this fit the bill. It’s about two college students in L.A., one a British gal, the other an American bloke, who fall in love, and then have to figure out where to take the relationship after graduation.

I paused it last night with about 20 minutes left because I had to get to bed, but pretty good from what I saw. I hope to finish the rest tonight.

P.P.S. If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time to enter the China Glaze Capitol Colours and Electropop Brights Kit giveaway. Only takes a comment. :)

    Oh, I love all of these colors. I want these nail polishes so much.

    As for Like Crazy, I haven’t seen it. But, I do love Anton Yelchin, so it has that going for it. :)

  2. Ele says:

    Some of the colors are similar to cheaper polishes I already own (Lilac, Aqua and Rose Petal) but I do love Mint.

  3. Kim says:

    The colors look creamy and delicious in the bottles but the streaking is a killer for me. And, actually, so is requiring more than one coat. :)

    I haven’t seen Like Crazy but I need an intervention like crazy. I was up until almost midnight again streaming old eps of Buffy. Scary.

    • Karen says:

      Dude, that’s such a good show! After you finish it you then have Angel to look forward to. Where are you at in the story?

      • Kim says:

        Oh, I’m so glad you like it too! Angel just returned from hell (Season 3, the Homecoming episode). I said to the Hubs last night while watching “hey, look, good news… Angel’s back!”. He started googling therapists. HAHA! Totally! After this season, I think I’ll be off Buffy and onto Angel! :)

    • Adrienne says:

      Ive been staying up too late watching Buffy too! You can’t stop after season 3, Spike with his, uh “problem performing” in season 4…perfection. I love him in season 4 because he thinks he is so insanely cool and scary, but he’s actually hilariously pathetic, and somehow still hot even though I never go for blonde…
      Have you watched them before or is this your first time through?

  4. Marina says:

    I love blue, mint and lilac nail polishes. I am not really that into rom coms but I want to see this film. Saw you’ve mentioned Melancholia the other day, there is no way I am watching it. I am afraid it will leave me feeling really sad.

    such pretty, springy colors!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nina,

      Aren’t they, though? Gotta love how fresh they feel.

      I hope you’re having a great day so far. Got any plans yet for the weekend beside The Hunger Games movie?

  6. Karo says:

    Oh Wow! I ❤ all of them!
    ❤❤❤❤❤

  7. Kayla says:

    I love these nail polish shades

  8. Teri says:

    Strangely enough I’m really liking the yellow shade, and I’m not so big on yellow shades, but this one is nice! :)

    Love these colors! I love pastels on nails. And now I kind of want to see that movie! Anton Yelchin = <3

    I love these shades!

  11. ahhhdri says:

    Great swatches! I especially love Anise.

  12. I love most of these, but I have noooo patience for anything that takes more than 2 coats, however amazing the color is!

  13. Love! I’m not sold on the sound of the formula, but the pastels D&G have chosen to do here are absolutely divine. Anise and Lilac; two shades after my own heart!

    *swoons*

    BTW, I had to run out and buy jordan almonds after your introductory blog about these lol!
    Anise is really pretty, and Im not a big polish conniseur but it seems pretty unique!

  15. Fieran says:

    Mint, Anise and Acqua look great on you. I don’t do pastels well I think because I find they are a bit too girly for me. Too much tomboy here :)

  16. amy says:

    Anise and Lemon are my favourites. Is the Lemon polish streaky like almost all yellow polishes on the market?

    I guess I already own all of these shades in other dupes or almost dupes from other brands, but I have to admit that this collection is too beautiful with all those bottles with such delicate colors together :°)
