Today I have for you a review of L’Oreal Gold Dust nail polish in Hidden Gems. I have to say, out of the three I bought (Too Dimensional and Sexy In Sequins are the other two), this is the one I wanted most and was the most disappointed in! 😦 In the bottle, there is a gorgeous shift of blue teal to purple, but on the nail, it is totally lost. Let’s take a look!
Hidden Gems is a bit thicker formula than the other two. This is also the only one I tested for wear over a day (remember, though, I’m a SAHM with no dishwasher!). It wore fine, just the very teensiest of wear on the tips (after doing dishes, laundry, general cleaning, and taking a shower).
These next pictures are with 4 COATS of topcoat. Can I just say “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” I would have used nail pattern boldness Glitter Food, and then topcoat, but alas, I’m running perilously low on that.
I really, really, really wanted this one to work, because in the bottle it is so dang pretty! But on the nail, the dark background completely overwhelms the sparkle and the color shift. 😦 What do you think of Hidden Gems? Have you picked up any of these Gold Dust polishes yet? Let me know in the comments!
