First time I saw L’Oreal Color Riche Le Vernis à l’Huile nail polishes, they reminded me of old school grenades. Kind of strange bottle shape in my eyes, but others seem to find them cute. :D
Brush was very nice surprise with its wide shape and rounded edges. They could be little bit more rounded, but that would be already nitpicking. Let’s take a look how individual shades fared …
Two coats of Blanc De Lune give good coverage and pretty white base for further nail art experiments. It is not flawless white nail polish, but lets be real – not many of those out there. One coat wonder it is not, but with 2 coats I managed to cover most of the streaky patches.
114 Nude Demoiselle
This light pink shade was surprisingly harder to apply than Blanc De Lune polish. This pink nail polish required soft and steady hand with brush as diagonals as it goes with nail polish. And no super thin coats if you wish to achieve almost flawless application. As you can see from my swatch – it can be done though.
Color is very flattering so I would say that even I would invest few extra minutes for application and wear it for the crazy weeks when I do not have time for new manicure. :D
220 Dimanche Apres-Midi
But if you are not sold on diva 114 L’Oreal beauty, then I would suggest you try 220. It is not as opaque as 114, but application was a dream. I felt like it glided onto my nails without much effort from my side. :D It is slightly more to the pink side than 114, so not so dear to me color-wise, but the application … <3
556 Grenat Irreverent
Be still my heart. Now this is math made in heaven for me. Gorgeous fall vampy shade, deep deep red. And again that jelly cream finish that manages to steal my breath every time I encounter it.
Application – 5 stars.
672 Gris Decadent
Another winner in my book, is gray representative. Easy application, not to dark gray so not really vampy shade but great canvas for fall stamping nail art.
Plus: overall I liked the formula for its fast drying, good staying power and slight jelliness to even cream finish shades.
Minus: they are perfumed, and not slightly, so I do not recommend you apply them before sleep it you too have issues with scented products. Tried that, had an headache. :D
In Slovenia we have very limited color palette so I could not choose 6th one (we had BOGO promotion going on) that would appeal to me or I found it useful.
Price: 6 EUR for 13,5 ml
