L'Oreal Too Dimensional? (136) Nail Lacquer
L’Oreal Too Dimensional? (136) Nail Lacquer

Today, I have two shades from L’Oreal’s Gold Dust Colour Riche Nail Colour range, which has now popped online, so I’m not sure if they’re still limited edition or not, but I’m erring on the side of limited edition for now.  These have a matte, textured finish that mixes matte color with sparkling glitter and sequin-shaped glitters.  I get a week of wear with no chipping, just minor wear as the edges grind away over the week.  I found the consistencies of the formula to be on the thicker side, so application can take some getting used to, and the drying time is about ten to fifteen minutes per coat.

L’Oreal Too Dimensional? (136) Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, amethyst purple with champagne gold glitter and sequin-shaped glitter. It’s a textured polish, so it’s matte but sparkly. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was some unevenness during the application so some areas of the nail looked less than opaque.  The texture was on the thicker side, so it takes a little patience to apply. China Glaze All Wrapped Up (LE, $7.50) is cooler-toned and doesn’t have gold sequins. L’Oreal The Reign of Studs (LE, $6.99) is not as cool-toned and doesn’t have any gold glitter. See comparison swatches.

Pop the Bubbles (142) Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a lightened, aqua teal with silver glitter and larger silver sequin-shaped glitter. It has a textured, matte finish, so it doesn’t feel smooth to the touch, and then it has sparkling, reflective glitters.  The consistency was also a little thick with this shade, but it was easier to apply, and the color was fully opaque after two coats.   L’Oreal Now You Sea Me (P) is similar in color but is a cream, so it is quite different. See comparison swatches.

  1. Too Dimensional? kind of looks like OPI Baby Please Come Home.

  2. Not a fan of matte nail polishes but these look good!!

  3. I had the black shade from this collection (I forgot what it’s called), but even with a topcoat I still was not a fan. I wound up giving it away.

  4. These seem really similar to the JulieG gumdrop line polishes

    These are permanent – some of the drugstores around me have updated the wall displays, and these are in it :)

  6. They came up with cute names for these two :-) And I like how both colors look.

  7. I purchased Diamond in the Rough about a month ago, and I fell in love, so you know I had to have more from this line. Most nail polish is BOGO 1/2 off this week at Riteaid (at least in the US. I’m not sure about the sales elsewhere — anyone else know?) Last night I picked up four more from this collection, along with some Sinful Colors. These two were included in my haul. After seeing this review, I can’t wait to try them out. They look awesome on you, Christine! If anyone is interested in these, I’d say now is probably a good time to hit up your local Rite Aid if there’s one near you.

    I have picked up a few of the nail polishes in this collection and I love them! They are so pretty. I picked up the gold one (The Statement Piece?), Hidden Gems (teal), a purple one and I think a pink one…I can’t remember off the top of my head! They are all really pretty although I haven’t worn them yet because I have hauled a LOT of nail polish in the last 2 months or so. But I plan on giving them a go soon!

  9. I most likely would never wear these, but they are really pretty!

  10. They look great on your nails Christine. I’m not a fan of the texture as they don’t last on me at all…they tend to chip off within a day or two or even the entire thing.

    I’ve been meaning to ask…how do you get such a clean edge by your cuticles and what do you use to keep them so nice looking?

    • For me, the biggest tip is to try to do one stroke slightly curving the brush so that it is a fluid stroke along the edge in one motion. I don’t do anything for my cuticles in terms of care (bad, I know!).

    I almost bought Too Dimensional a couple days ago, but I decided against it because I was worried about application.It looks pretty good in this review and another review I’ve seen of it, but I rather have nail polishes that don’t pose a challenge when I have to apply them.

  12. How do you think these would look with a top coat on them? I’m not a fan of the matte look, but if I could get that look with a glossy finish, it’d be wonderful.

  13. Pop the bubbles is so pretty! I might have to make a trip to Farmers (assuming these have arrived here/will ever arrive here) :-D

    How similar is too dimensional to that blue Liquid Sand from the OPI San Francisco collection? (Alcatraz…Rocks) It looks like the finish might be similar except for the larger glitters?

  14. I was thinking I liked Pop the Bubbles, but after seeing the “dupe” Now You Sea Me, I think I would rather try that instead :) I am having a hard time liking the textured matte polishes.

  15. pretty shades! I am picking up both :-)

    I’m not a big fan of these, either. I got the copper one when it first showed up and stupid me, I did my toe nails. They sandpapered right through my stockings! Duh. :o
