Alessandro- Sweet Blackberry

Today I have a gorgeous new polish to show you guys from Alessandro. Alessandro is partnered with Tweezerman and this new line of nail products. I was pretty excited to get the opportunity to review one of the colors for you.

Sweet Blackberry is a deep dusty rose with a silver shimmer throughout. With the first coat, I was so happy to see that I got the same shimmer from the bottle on the nail! The brush is wide and not too fat and the formula of this polish was AM MAZ ZING. Seriously, guys. Buttery and smooth, it practically poured itself on my nail and I barely had to do any cleanup. I used two coats for the swatch below.





Pros- Amazing formula and bottle shimmer showing up 100% on the nail?? I can't WAIT to try more.

Cons- The square top of this bottle does not come off to reveal a smaller top underneath like most square tops do. If you don't like working with larger tops, this might bother you. I thought the dents in the bottle helped a lot too.

Overall- I was so pleasantly surprised by this polish. The color is not my favorite on me but I was so impressed that I can't wait to try more!

You can purchase Alessandro directly from their website. Keep with with products by liking them on Facebook, and following them on Twitter and Instagram.

  1. Looks more bright than dusty in the photo- I love this type of color. This reminds me of photos I have seen of Chanel Infidele. what a gorgeous polish!

    1. It is kind of bright, but it's also a little dusty! Is it possible to be bright AND muted? It does look a lot like Infidele! I swatched Chanel Apirl a few months back and I thought it might be similar but Infidele is definitely a closer match.

  2. I love this dusty pink - and I am so envious of your nail shape - I get bored with trying to shape them properly.
