It was a while back that L’Oreal brought the Dark Sides of Grey collection to Canada. Turned out, we got the Europe version of it. No Masked Affair!
The bottles were the tiny thin 5ml size with different “effects” (Spiky, Wax, Latex, Metallic) instead of the regular Colour Riche bottle shape.
Shade selection was different too.
I was a little upset and skipped the entire collection until I found Totally D’Accord in a clearance bin.
It looks dark navy in the bottle but brings out that green sheen on the nails at certain angle. Not a full-on duochrome but a complex base colour. The Spiky Effect texture is quite mild, and the shiny flakes are similar to those of Zoya Pixie Dusts.
This is 2 coats with no top coat to show you the semi matte finish of the base. The glitters have no problem to shine through.
This second pic was taken in the sun. The colour shows up lighter than with flash (above) but I like it either way.
I am going by memory here, but it seems the whole collection in Canada only had 6 (instead of 8) shades, in which only 3 shades are the same as the US collection – Aux Chandelles, Power Potion and Totally D’Accord, plus a name variation between Mademoiselle Grey (Canada) and Miss Grey (US).
It might be a little quiet on the blog this week. I am in Toronto enjoying the best sunny and warm weather I have had this year and did not get around to prep posts in advance. Have a great week!
