Anna Sui Dolly Girl Nail Color and Gel Liner

Anna Sui will release a limited edition line of mini nail polishes on 2 October in Japan. The Dolly Girl Nail Color comes in 25 shades, each retailing at 680yen for 4ml. The packaging is a lot less ornate than Anna Sui's usual offerings.


There will also be a new Gel Eyeliner (2500yen, 1g). Strangely, the Anna Sui website lists 3 shades while Cosme.net lists 5 shades of which two are LE. These are 001 True Black, 002 Metallic Silver (with gold and silver pearl), 200 Glamorous Purple (with red and blue pearl), 300 Deep Pink (with silver and red glitter), LE) and 800 Shiny Gold (with gold glitter, LE).
