L’Oreal Chevron

Hello to all my nail friends out there!  Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend!! The weather has been great in New York and I woke up early today to make the most of it!  I went to step aerobics with mom bright and early today, then we did some shopping.  I had an awesome lunch with my boyfriend- quiche Lorraine and salad that I made with almonds and cranberries- so yummy!  Now that the day is winding down I’m going to plant my butt on the couch and watch some American Horror Story.  Anyone out there seen it?  We just started streaming it on netflix yesterday and we’ve almost finished the whole first season!  We also wanna fit in Cabin in the Woods tonite- it’s a scary movie that I’ve been dying to see and it’s finally available on netflix.  Yes, we are horror junkies!!

Now for my nails!  I borrowed these L’Oréal polishes from my mom.  These are some of her faves that she always reaches for:

walk on the beach ♥ a cream/beige

now you sea me ♥ a nice muted sky blue

spice things up ♥ a warm rose colored adobe

greyt expectations ♥ a greyish mauve/ neutral

I love my mom’s taste in nail polish- she goes for creams, especially greens and blues.  I paint her nails every weekend and I’m always using her polish on her and I got the urge to try them on myself.  She says, “all the polish you have and you wanna borrow mine?”.  Yup, precisely!  These shades go great together and I wanted to try them all out together!  So today I hand painted a chevron-type design with all 4 of these L’Oréal nail colors.  They seem to dry pretty fast, but I’ve noticed that even though the formula is kind of thin- they get a little dry and goopy over time.  I’ve already had to put some thinner into her favorite one called Greyt Expectations because application was getting difficult.  Still, I love these polishes… the shades are gorgeous and they’re relatively easy to find in drug stores near me.  Plus, L’Oréal puts out coupons so we can usually get a good deal Woot!  Have you tried any of their nail colors…what do you think?

  1. I have a couple l’Oreal colors, andwith one I was so annoyed at how gloopy it became after only a few uses! The other however its definitely thin without gloopiness. I hate when formulations seem different in one brand:$
    Nice chevron too:) I like that it’s just on the tips!

  2. (I am predicting) you will LOVE Cabin in the Woods! Not a huge horror fan myself, but went on a boring weekend, and was blown away. AHS, on the other hand – first season was beyond awesome; made my husband stay up with me til dawn, to finish it in one night! But oh, the 2nd season…the campiness was OUT OF CONTROL and the plot (not to mention the accents) were all over the place.

    Gotta say I like Revlon better than L’Oreal for nail polish. L’Oreal has more eye-catching colors but Revlon is more tried and true. I call it Old Faithful; have more Revlon than any other brand!

    • We fell asleep before we could watch Cabin! I was just researching AHS- I didn’t realize that each season had a different theme. Is it a lot of the same actors… but they are playing different characters? Tate is my fave.

  3. Love the colors! I wish my mom was into nail polish – I have to practically twist her arm to let me paint her nails! lol
    I bought my first Loreal in a loooooong time today: Bubble Trouble (a pink jelly) from the Miss Candy display. The bright colors just sucked me in and I couldn’t resist!

  4. I only have a few L’oreal polishes but I love them all, I’m always so impressed with the quality. Loved the nail look, the colors are awesome
