As I mentioned, there are a lot of new drugstore collections out right now, and I found one of them today – L’oreal’s new Miss Candy Gellie nail polishes (display pictures at the end of the post). I purchased two of them, and I’ll definitely be going back for more – they’re even better than I had hoped!
In the above swatches, each color has one coat, two coats, three coats, and then four coats of color. As you can see, the polishes are quite sheer, but build to a really lovely, squishy, jelly finish. Berry Nice is just a little bit streaky at one coat, but Miss Pixie is not streaky at all. Both dry to a very glossy finish.
I’m wearing Berry Nice on my nails right now; I had intended to swatch both, but I like Berry Nice so much that I don’t want to remove it! I am wearing four coats, and my nail line is just barely visible – only if I look carefully. Four coats really are necessary though, I don’t like how this looks on me at three coats, as pictured below:
The fourth coat really makes a difference:
There are eight nail polish shades in the collection, as well as three nail lingerie nail strips, and I believe all of them are limited edition. Here’s the display:
The colors are Jolly Lolly (red), Mango Mamma (orange), Bananarama Love (yellow), Creme de Mint (green), Lilac Coolers (light purple), Bubble Trouble (Pink), Berry Nice (deep purple), and Miss Pixie (blue).
See anything you’re interested in picking up?
