Nuance Polish by Salma Hayek - Vapor #455 - Swatches and Review

Nothing to Disclose 
*This product is Cruelty Free 

Nuance is a fairly new brand created by Salma Hayek - a cruelty-free brand that includes make-up, skin care and hair care as well as nail polish. So far I just picked up a few polishes but I'm really anxious to try the anti-aging creams!

Tonight I have Vapor #455. Vapor is a gorgeous greyed smoky purple creme.

I had zero issues with formula or application. It's smooth and creamy and applied easily. The bottles are round (think Cult Nails) and the brushes are medium width and flat. I used two coats for full opacity and no top coat for the photos. I recommend the first coat be a thin one to avoid pooling. The second coat takes care of everything! It's not super fast drying but I put a fast dry top coat (Poshe) later and I was good to go in minutes!

I also picked up 3 others that I'll be showing you soon. The formula on each of them was great.

L to R: Midnight Blackberry #405, Vapor #455, Azalea #415 and Black Dahlia #460

Three of the 4 polishes in the photo above are cremes. Azalea is a shimmer and it's gorgeous. These are $6.29 each and contain .5 fl oz.

Nuance products are exclusive to CVS Pharmacy.

What do you think? Have you tried any of these yet? Or any of the other Nuance products? Unfortunately, there isn't a CVS in my town, but I think it will be worth the 15 minute drive to the next town over - I'm trying the anti-aging creams next!

If you enjoyed this post, please take a second to "like" it! Thanks!



  1. Oh that is just absolutely gorgeous! A CVS stop is definitely in my future. :)

  2. This one is very nice! I'm personally not crash hot on the others but this one really does have 'nuance' to it. :)

  3. I've seen these in my CVSs. Pretty shades & I'm tickled to learn they're cruelty-free.
