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.
