Lancome's inspiration for their Spring 2014 Collection is French Ballerine. The promotional posters look gorgeous - graceful, delicate, and altogether feminine. I purchased a Khol in Love liner and Vernis in Love Rose Satin (366). The photo of the polish on Nordstrom's site makes it look like a lovely muted pink-coral.

This was my first Lancome vernis. I was excited to see they utilize a wider brush, like Dior and Guerlain. It wasn't quite as wide and the application was very streaky. I added a second coat to even things out, but it was still not exactly smooth.

I was hoping this shade would be a springy, coral shade, as opposed to an obnoxious hot pink. On top of my disappointment in the color, the polish chipped within 24 hours - and I mean really chipped. Entire flakes were just falling off.
Lancome Vernis in Love in Rose Satin (366) can be found at Nordstrom for $15. I highly suggest you save your money though. If you really want a crappy hot pink nail polish, there are plenty out there for a lot less money. I returned the lacquer - it had to go.
The following clip from "Addams Family Values" really sums up how this entire situation made me feel:
