L’Oreal – Brit Invasion

Clearing out a bit of a backlog with something from the vault.  I have had these images for a while and thought it was about time to get them out into the public domain.

This is Brit Invasion from the Fall 2012 London Collection by L’Oreal.  I understand that these were all limited edition shades but they do pop up on blog sales now and then.  Nouveau Cheap had the scoop when they were first stopped Stateside.

Its a really unusual colour, depending on the light it looks more brown or more purple.  Its quite a complex one to describe, it is like a browned lavender.  Anyway, formula was great, three thin coats and you get great coverage.  I used Essie Millionails as a base with a good coat of Seche Vite on top.  After a day I pepped it up a bit with Kleancolor Firework, a glitter bomb of a polish with teal/blue, orangey gold and red in it.

What do you think?  I like the clashing colour combo although the Kleancolor is a bit smelly…..


Kleancolor – Holo Green

This little holographic beauty once again came from my lovely Polish Twin.  Its a lovely pale green with a holographic shimmer.  This is the first Kleancolor I have ever had.  And I have a thing for greens, and blacks, and glitters……….

I didn’t want to over do the nails, busy couple of days at work and I wanted something shiny yet understated.  This is very sheer on one coat, but with a few thin coats you get a sense of colour on the nail.  It dries quickly so a few coats isn’t an issue.  Now, a word of warning, as its not 3-free, its a bit stinky so a well ventilated area is a must.  It also dries a little bit gritty so a nice top coat is a must.

I think next time I’m going to layer it, any suggestions?
