Today I just have a quick review. I bet some of you (you know who you are) are sooooo happy to not be seeing glitter for the last few days! 🙂 The polish I’m going to review is from the newer L’Oreal nail polishes, and it’s called Tweet Me. Speaking of tweeting, if you aren’t already, you should definitely be on Twitter. It’s the most fun way to follow your favorite blogs and let me tell you from first hand experience, some hilarious conversations go down on Twitter. I’m pretty sure some of the people I talk to on there all the time almost never check out my blog (and why would they- I post spoiler pictures allll the time! haha) but we talk nails and just get on the funniest topics. Sometimes I end up reading all my tweets to my husband, and laugh so hard I can hardly talk and he just politely listens and then probably rolls his eyes as I wipe the laughing-tears from mine! 🙂 He’s on Twitter but I’m pretty sure he hasn’t signed into his account since the day he signed up! 😉 Anyway- follow me! 🙂 And let’s look at today’s polish:
Tweet Me is a marigold/canary (almost mustard, but not quite as murky) yellow creme with slight orange-y shimmer. It shows more in the bottle than it does on the nail, but if you look closely you can see a little shimmer.
I thought the formula for this polish was kind of disgusting. The shimmer, especially for being so faint on the nails, makes this polish really weird in texture. It reminded me of a mealy apple. Ew. It did not go on smooth, and took at least 4 coats to be mostly opaque. You can’t really tell in these pictures but in real life you could still see my nail line a little, which I do not like. I stamped over these nails (which you saw yesterday) because I just couldn’t live with the VNL. I’ll take VNL over VPL but it doesn’t mean I like it!
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Will I buy more of these L’Oreal polishes? No. Might I wear this one that I have already again? Possibly. I like the color of this yellow, don’t care much for the shimmer, but it’s faint so who cares, but I don’t particularly like the formula. If I had a matching color polish from a different brand, I’d definitely take that over this, but since I didn’t have that option and I don’t have a yellow like this one, I like it “okay.” For all of you out there though- I’d say “no thank you” and find a similar China Glaze, Finger Paints, OPI, Essie, maybe even Sinful Colors polish. I do like the color though!
Have you tried any L’Oreal polishes? What is your opinion of them? Do you know of a good marigold/mustard yellow like this from a different brand that I should try? As always, thanks for reading and Happy Polishing!
