My stash – L’Oreal

We are on to L’Oreal today. I don’t normally turn to L’Oreal for their nail polish, only get a bottle or two here and there. As you can see in the pictures, I don’t have many bottles from the brand.

From L-R: L’Oreal Hopeful Plum (Color of Hope Collection), Safari Sunset and Dessert Dawn (Summer of Safari Collection).

These are all LE shades, I’m afraid. The permanent line doesn’t interest me much, so I tend to check out the special displays for interesting colours. These were on clearance at the end of the season (50% off), around CAD3 each.

Can’t comment much about application of these babies unfortunately, as they are from my untried pile 🙂

And these are L’Oreal Resist & Shine Tatanium in Black Gold, Black Red and Black Turquoise.

As you see in my NOTDS with 2 of the bottles, the black overpowers the colours which make them appear black on my nails. Only under direct flash that you can see the glare of colours.

The interesting thing about this collection is that it seems not to make it to the US yet, so we Canadians could have the privilege of trying them out first, together with the UK and Australia 🙂

I got these on sale for CAD4 a pop, not too bad. Regular price is somewhere around CAD10 which I don’t think is worth it. I still have the burning question: if I add more pigments to the polish, do you think it’d show up better, or the black is just going to “swallow” any other colour trying to take its part?
