What do you do after you resolve jet another boring and long lasting bureaucratic hurdle? You visit drugstore just around the corner and buy yourself something pretty of course. :D I won’t even go into details what did I buy, but I will say that quite a few of the bought nail polishes are gift for my friends. I think you’ll agree with me that it would be very cruel if I just bought them nail polishes and got nothing for myself.
Among my purchase was also beige nail polish. You heard me right, I bought nude polish. Saw it with corner of my eye, fell in love and rest was history. L’Oreal Oyster Bay looked like perfect nude shade for me, so I really had no reason to hesitate.
This is pretty neutral shade in color of white coffee … with lots of milk. Base itself leans more to cool side, while tiny gold shimmer pull more toward warm specter. Great balance of colors and pretty much what I was looking for. Application was not hard, but streaks are still seen so it was not perfect. I used classical technique: base coat, 2 coats of polish, top coat.
Staying power is pretty individual thing, but I will say that this shade lasted 3 days without significant damage, then started to chip on more vulnerable nails and was not appropriate for public on day 5. So pretty average drugstore nail polish.
Problem is, I now want to have few of the other nail polishes from this collection. Is there any shade that I really have to have?
