I will keep my introductions to each of these succinct and say up front that all 4 had terrific formulas, zero cleanup, and a major glitter wow factor. I used two coats of each for the photos. The texture of the L'Oreal Gold Dust collection is just like Julie G Gumdrops textures, which I love as well.
First off is the lovely lavender called The Reign of Studs. I confess, I have no idea what that name means. It sounds like some weird play on Game of Thrones. Or The King of Queens. I don't know. It looks a bit similar to Too Dimensional?, but it's more of a true purple hue with silver glitter instead of gold.
Did you catch that reference to being "appropriately named"? There's a reason for that. Next up is possibly the worst named polish of 2013...and frankly, I thought nothing could top Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! And it's a shame too, because I Like It Chunky (???) is one of the most gorgeous textured numbers ever invented. The pink glitter in the coppery base creates an overall look of rose gold. I guess it likes its glitter chunky. I hope so anyway...I Like It Chunky looks really, really rotten on me, but I don't care. It's soooo pretty.
And you all know me by now...I'm gonna save the vamptastic shade for last! Feast your eyes on Sexy in Sequins, a blackish-purple with lots of pink, lavender and gold glitter. This one has it all. I was worried that its dark base would made it troublesome to work with, but nope...another winner. :)
I have resisted (thus far) the temptation to just go ahead and finish purchasing this collection. But who knows what tomorrow may bring?? :D There is something about the L'Oreal Gold Dust polishes that really connected with people. They are all exceptionally pretty, long-wearing, and inexpensive...and something tells me that when this limited edition sells out, the polishes will be the sought-after prizes of tomorrow. I got all of mine at Rite Aid.
