L'Oreal Top Coat Confetti in 'Graffiti D'amour' (over 'Essie Mint Candy Apple')
HAPPY FRIDAY! Hope you've all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend! Today I wanted to show you a lovely top coat that I've been trying out this week. This one is called 'Graffiti D'Amour' and it's from the L'Oreal Color Riche Coloured Confetti range. You might remember I did a review of the 'Jackie Tweed' one back in March (here). This range is so colourful and always catches my eye when I'm wandering around Boots. I saw this red, pink and white one the other day and since it was 3 for 2, it would've been rude not to...
I originally thought this would be nice over the pink shade I was wearing, but I actually prefer it over a contrasting colour like Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple' above. This makes the colour stand out a bit more and I love how it looks like little polka dots. I've tried this against all of my nail colours and I've shown my favourites above - the lilac one is my next to try! The swatches above are two coats, but you could definitely build it up more if you wanted to.
The only problem I have with this one (that I didn't have with 'Jackie Tweed') is that the 'confetti' doesn't leave a smooth finish on the nail. I had to layer quite a lot of clear top coat over this to try and smooth it out, but even then I still found it catching on things throughout the day. In the end, this is why I ended up having a few chips after 3/4 days but I'm still overall happy with it. It took a seriously long time to get this stuff off with nail polish remover, which is what I'd expect from a top coat like this. So I suppose if you find a good finishing coat to smooth this out, then this nail polish probably wouldn't budge ...ever.
What do you think? What colour do you think looks best underneath?
p.s couldn't find it on the Boots site, but it's available in the shop :)
