L'Oreal Colour Riche in Violet Vixen

This is an updated repost from my original blog on Tumblr

L’Oreal Colour Riche Violet Vixen • Sinful Colors Snow Me White • Mash-24
Awkward note: My nails grow out really fast; I took this photo 4-5 days after actually doing it, so the gap between the polish and my cuticles is rather large :x On the plus side, now you know that L'Oreal Colour Riche holds up well without chipping!

I ordered the MASH 2012 nail stamping set (inexplicably no longer listed on Amazon, but is available on eBay) back in December but I haven’t actually tried any of the plates until now. The design smudged a bit on my ring finger after applying Seche Vite top coat but I’m rather happy with how it turned out. It has a home decor vibe to it; I want a pillow or something in this print, haha. I would definitely stamp this again on top of a green or blue for a fresh spring look.

Violet Vixen is a very red-leaning violet or berry. The brush on this polish takes some getting used to: it’s not as dense as other nail polish brushes → doesn’t hold a lot of polish in the brush → wiping the brush against the bottle sides tends to be an unnecessary step. I tried using Sinful Colors Snow Me White on my right hand (shown) for stamping this time rather than Konad White. The Konad White Special Polish results in a brighter, bolder white, but I think the thick, goopiness of it makes it more prone to smudging when applying your top coat. I don’t think it is a huge difference unless you’re comparing the two side-by-side, so the Sinful Colors works pretty well if you don’t want to get the Konad White.

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! I do my best to reply to all of them within 1-2 days, especially if there is a question. Please be aware that comments containing links may be edited to remove the links or not approved at all.
