L’Oreal VIP Status Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal VIP Status Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, smoky blue-gray with hints of teal and silver shimmer in a metallic base. There was not a single color that came to mind that even resembled this in a meaningful way. Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal is a creamy, dark blue-based teal, but there’s none of the gray, smokiness or the multi-faceted shimmer. If you have a dupe in mind, I’d love to hear it!
