Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer 701 Bleu D’Armani ($20 6ml. 2fl. oz.) has been on my must-buy list for some time now.  The promise of a long-lasting color, a specially designed flat-widen brush, exceptional application and shine was too enticing to resist.  Will this dark navy midnight delight be everything Armani claims, or will this be another overpriced designer dud?  You’ll see 🙂

The Pros to Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer 701 Bleu D’Armani:

  1. Beautiful deep navy color with a cream finish.
  2. Opacity is reached using ONE coat!!!
  3. Thicker formula applies smoothly and settles evenly.
  4. One bottle is sure to last as long as any standard size polish that utilizes 2-3 coats.
  5. Wide flat brush makes application fast and easy.
  6. Manicure lasted well for 6 days without any chipping, with a fresh top coat added on the fourth day.
  7. Removes easily with my Zoya Polish Remover.
  8. Slimmer bottle design makes for convenient storage.
  9. Although not advertised as 3-free, Toluene, Formaldehyde and DBP are not listed among the ingredients.
  10. 30 professional and sophisticated colors to choose from–no hexagon glitter polishes here.
  11. Made in Spain.

The Cons to Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer 701 Bleu D’Armani:

  1. Amount given .2 fl.oz. is well below the standard .5 fl. oz. polishes…but the quality is far superior.
  2. Two coats will result in a thicker application that could easily chip.
  3. Not all GA counters carry the nail lacquer collection.
  4. In two major department stores, the GA polish displays were hidden.  I found the polish testers in a drawer beneath the GA blushes and bronzers.  One sales associate swore GA did not make nail polishes…What?

As you can tell by the above photo, Bleu D’Amani is housed in the slimmest bottle, but is the only polish out of the bunch that applies completely opaque using only one coat.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer 701 Bleu D’Armani is a gorgeous color that will not disappoint.  The one coat formula, long-wear feature, beautiful navy blue coloring and amazing brush have sold me on this polish.  Will I be getting any more colors?  In a heartbeat ♥  Be well, stay safe and be happy.
