L'oreal - Colour Riche nail varnish.

Hi everyone, I hope you all had wonderful weekend! Today I am going to review a new favourite nail varnish combination of mine using the L'oreal colour riche nail varnishes. I'd never tried L'oreal nail varnishes before but these two colours caught my eye straight away and I just had to have them!

L'oreal Colour Riche nail varnish Pistachio Drage and Oulala blue
First of all the bottles of these nail varnishes are gorgeous, they are small and slim which makes storing them easier. Also I love that they are small because let's be honest how often do you finish a nail varnish? More than often I have to throw them away because they've gone off, but with these smaller ones I feel like I'll actually be able to finish them meaning I'll get more value for money!

However I do have one problem with the packaging and that's the fact that the lid often detaches from the brush which can be a pain. Though saying this it's really easy to fix as all you have to do is screw the lid back on tightly again and they should reattach.

As for the actual nail varnishes I got the colours Pistachio Drage, which is a lovely subtle mint green, and Oulala blue which is a top coat of blue and green sequins that I think goes perfectly with the mint green.

When applying I like to do two coats for each nail varnish. This is because I find that one coat of Pistachio Drage can be a little streaky but the second coat always evens it out, and for Oulala blue I like to add extra sequins as sometimes with one coat you don't get a lot.

Once applied they are really quick drying, taking only 5 - 10 minutes to dry fully, which you know is always a massive positive to me! Once dried this these nail varnishes last for around 3-4 days before chipping which is really good!

I am really in love with these nail varnishes and think they are great summer shades, and I think they would make a good choice when attending a wedding as well! I think they are a great price at £4.99 each and you can buy them here:
