L'Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous Nail Lacquer
L’Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous Nail Lacquer

Black and Silver Meet Again

L’Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a creamy black with silver-gray shimmer. It has less shimmer when compared to Illamasqua Creator and NARS Night Breed. L’Oreal The Queen’s Ambition is closer to the other two dupes I mentioned, as the shimmer is larger and more noticeable.

The consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, and the coverage was fully opaque after two coats.  I’ve been getting a full seven days with no chipping, just minor tip wear, with L’Oreal’s Colour Riche formula.  This is a limited edition holiday shade, which I’ve still spotted in stores as late as last week, but I haven’t seen it available online.  I think because the shimmer is smaller, it gets a little lost in the black base (it also seems grayer/more subdued in color), so I’d grab The Queen’s Ambition over this between the two.

    Wow that’s pretty. I bought it but haven’t had the opportunity to wear it yet. Maybe my next mani will feature it?

  2. very pretty! seems like every brand is coming out with their own version of this. I like it!

  3. The formula sounds nice–the NCLA polish I have that’s similar had to use 3 coats for opaque coverage but the silver in it is larger and there is more of it. I’m still curious about The Queen’s Ambition though

    I was never able to find Queen’s Ambition anywhere. I may have to go for this…if I can find it! lol.

    This looks like a reissue of an older polish. I have a loreal polish circa 2005 or 2006 that looks just like this with the ultra subtle silver flecks. In any case, I don’t care for how subtle the shimmer is.

    For some reason I have falling in love with these nail polishes. I purchased two, not in this color, but in other colors, and I can’t believe I don’t own a lot of them lol. I love the brush on the L’oreal nail polishes! There perfect!

  7. Christy

    This kinda looks like Zoya Storm (which I LOVE!) The Zoya polish has a lot more glitter though.

    Reminds me of the night sky, I like it :D

    Bought Drop Dead Gorgeous and Queen’s Ambition but haven’t used either one yet. I still want Zoya Storm!
