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.
