l’oreal resist & shine black gloss part 3

. Friday, January 15, 2010


remember, back in october, when I showed you some swatches of the new black gloss collection polishes? there was a red one here and 2 purples here.

I think, they relaunched it now! I found a new display at dm, and there were 2 new shades. remember when I complained, that one of the shades, black khaki, was not available in austria? now it is! and there was yet another new shade!


737 black khaki – ok, I must admit that I had expected much more of this one. it’s not what I would call khaki green, it’s more of a yellowtoned brown shimmer in a black base. it’s too yellow for my skintone. what a shame :-(



731 black blue (?) – this one is new in the collection and it’s freaking gorgeous! it’s a deep blue shimmer in a black base. I think it’s close to OPI yoga-ta get this blue! but it’s not the same shade of blue.

application of both was great, very creamy and pretty opaque with one coat. on the pics I did 2 coats for more depth.

along with those 2 shades came the red and the purples, but they dropped the brown. if you missed those polishes last time I suggest you go and get them now!


update on china glaze calcium gel fortifier:

I’ve been using it for almost 3 weeks now, and rarely used on polish. I don’t feel it has done any improvement to my nails yet. this is a picture of the 3 right hand fingers than keep breaking and chipping.


they still are, and I can hardly keep them in shape. so I guess I will not recommend this product, but there’s still 2 weeks to go. we will see.

I really need to go and check them out. These days I usually don't even look at brands like L'Oreal, but these colours look lovely.

I hate loreal. Since i bought a resist & shine and had problems. The formula can't be more horrible. For me may i say... I sent them an email and no answer.

trinca-espinhas: that's weird, I really love the formula. maybe you got a "bad" polish, or the base and topcoat didn't blend well with the polish.

Same problem with my nails here. They look like a shame. I also tried the Calcium Gel Fortifier, it doesn't work for me. If I wear it solo, it peals off to easily. I now wear it as a base-coat (under CND Stickey). I don't think it helps my nails :-(
