L'Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer
L’Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer

A Splatter of Black Glitter

L’Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) contains black and silver glitter suspended in a clear base.  The silver glitter appears to be in one size, while the black glitter comes in multiple sizes, which makes it look a lot like black paint splatter. It looks super, super dark in the bottle–so much so that it also looks a lot like The Queen’s Ambition, but it’s completely different. I don’t have anything like this, and the only polish that reminds me of the effect is China Glaze Tinsel Town, which is black with silver glitter.

I layered this over a silver polish so you could see it layered, and the other two nails show the polish on its own with two coats. It’s best used as a layering polish, especially since the base color is clear. The glittery bits and bobs spread evenly across the nail and didn’t get too clumped up.  I picked this up from a holiday display, though I haven’t spotted it online yet, but it was at my local CVS.   L’Oreal’s Colour Riche line has worn really well on me from the half-dozen I’ve tested thus far–a full week of wear with no chipping and very minor tip wear.

The Bigger The Better

A-
It's a very cool effect, but I can see people hating it (and loving it), so it's going to come down to personal preference. To keep the splattered effect, it should be layered or used with one or two coats.

  1. I like it, but it looks kinda tricky to work with…

  2. Tamara

    That is so weird looking by itself but very cool when layered. It’s got a grunge feel to it.

    All I can think of when looking at this is Oreo cookie crumbs.

    I like it layered, but by itself, not so much. What silver did you use for the layering?

  6. Raven

    oooo I can’t wait to find this in-store, I have a metallic red that I’d love to layer it over. Such a cool effect!

  7. Rosemary

    Geez I love this! It reminds me of cookie crumbs.

  8. Oh how I wish that this was ONLY black glitter…I’ve been trying to find just black glitter nail polish for ages and ages. Haven’t been able to find any, so I just got some black glitter and I’m going to sprinkle it on over wet polish…still holding out hope that I’ll find a straight-up black glitter polish.

    Just one girl’s opinion: Ugly. Why anyone would want to wear something that looks like cookies as nail polish is beyond me. But like I said: just my opinion.

    I’m not liking it; it reminds me of dirt, tbh.

  11. renu

    I like it, I prefer nail paints to not look too perfect!

  12. Beck

    Christine, may I ask what silver polish you layered underneath?Thankyou :)

    Love it, going out to find it. I want to layer it over a royal navy.

    It looks like oreo cookies c:. I think it looks kind of cool on top of another colour, but I don’t think I’d wear it on it’s own.

    I’m wearing this over a bright silver and I love the effect and how glittery it is (I didn’t expect it to be so glittery). It’s very me :)
