L’Oreal Bohemian Beauty nail polishes swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonHey all! Today I have a fairly new(ish) nail polish collection to show you: L’Oreal’s Bohemian Beauty, featuring: Sunkissed Silver, Boho Babe, Peaceful Pink, Radical Rose, Flower Crown, Blissful Blue, Totally Turquoise, and Gypsy Glitz. I have 7 of these – I’m only missing Sunkissed Silver because it totally reminded me of Aux Chandelles from the Dark Sides of Grey collection. Click through after the jump for the review!

L'Oreal Bohemian Beauty nail polish collection | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Boho Babe 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Boho Babe, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Boho Babe is a light white-pink. It goes on thin and kinda patchy but kinda self-levels. I dunno, it’s weird. This is 2 coats, no top coat.

L'Oreal Peaceful Pink 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Peaceful Pink, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Peaceful Pink is a peachy-pink nail polish with hidden pink shimmer (note to makers: either show the shimmer or skip it, some of us are tired of this hidden shimmer crap!).

Like, that’s imperceptible shimmer. You have to let each coat dry otherwise you get dragging. It’s also patchy. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

L'Oreal Radical Rose 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Radical Rose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Radical Rose is a purple-pink nail polish. It has a slightly thin formula but otherwise nice. It’s the standout of the collection in my opinion. This is 2 coats, no top coat.

L'Oreal Flower Crown 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Flower Crown, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Flower Crown is a warm mint nail polish. It’s thin and runny. My pictures show it slightly cooler than it is in person. This is 2 coats, no top coat.

L'Oreal Blissful Blue 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Blissful Blue, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Blissful Blue is a robin’s egg blue nail polish that’s been tinted slightly green. It’s thin and runny (sense a theme here?).  I also feel like this could be a stainer (kind of stained my skin when it was on maybe 10 minutes). This is 2 coats, no top coat.

L'Oreal Totally Turquoise 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

L'Oreal Totally Turquoise, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Totally Turquoise is a rich blue turquoise nail polish. My pictures could *not* show it accurately. 😦 Sorry! Formula on this is a little thin. And it’s a *HUGE* stainer. This is 2 coats, no top coat.

L'Oreal Gypsy Glitz over Peaceful Pink 3-finger pose, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Last is Gypsy Glitz, a silvery base nail polish with holographic bar glitters (aka hairy glitter). I’ve shown it 1 uneven coat over Peaceful Pink, above.

L'Oreal Gypsy Glitz, Bohemian Beauty nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This is 3 coats plus top coat. I really wanted to like this, I really did. But looking at it in person and in photos makes me wanna scratch my nails off. :/

If you’re into this sort of thing, here’s a macro of Gypsy Glitz.

So out of the 7 I bought, 1 is a definite winner: Radical Rose. I also like Flower Crown and Boho Babe. If you’re interested in picking up Peaceful Pink, Blissful Blue, Totally Turquoise, or Gypsy Glitz, I’m selling them for $6 a piece (shipped) plus invoice fees or $25 for all 4 shipped plus invoice fees. (Just email me at behappybuypolish@gmail.com and I’ll invoice you!)

  1. Not a fan of this collection L’Oreal. The formulas, the colors are kinda meh. And I’m with you on hidden shimmer. I’ll always like my drugstore brands. But I’m more a Revlon and Milani fangirl.

  2. The holo itself lit up so nice in your pix, but…it’s like holo grass on your nails? I know many have tried to make it happen, didn’t Sally Hansen or someone refer to it as feathers?
