No sir, I don't like it

Last night I removed the glitter and glam – it took forever and I still have little pieces of glitter on my hands :D So while I watched some X-men cartoons I painted my nails with a L’oreal. I just have to say that I have bought 3 different colours of these and haven’t been happy so far with the two I’ve tried.

It goes on quite nicely – two coats. But it doesn’t look like the bottle. It is very dark and not as shimmery as I think it should be. But it’s okay if you want bitumen coloured nails. And can I just say that my staffroom wasn’t happy with it either – I got a few comments about how boring my ‘black’ nails were. Thanks very much L’oreal.

The other issue I have had is chipping. Now as I said above, last night I had an exciting night of X-men cartoons and then went to bed – but when I rolled out of bed this morning I already had a chip in my nail. Just to put this into perspective – I like soft pillows. It has worn off the edges pretty quickly as well.

Maybe it is me, but two polishes both with the same issues??? I am leaving the colour I like the most ‘till last – hoping that it doesn’t have the same problems.

Base and top coat – Maybelline Express Finish
Nail colour – L’oreal Resist & Shine 710 Titanium


Titanium? I think not.
Up to 7 days? I think not.

And just in case you think that the gold lid is actually the brush handle – think again:


Not another word.


  1. I have been eyeing those off and almost bought one. I am glad I didn't drop the cash now! Thanks hon!

  2. Me too! Thanks for that. Polish bullet dodged. This time anyway.


  3. I've still got one to go, it has teal in it - but I'm guessing that you won't see it once it's on the nail.
