Too Dimensional? From L’Oreal’s Color Riche Gold Dust Textured Collection

Textures and glitter and matte, oh my!!! Take a look at my first polish color for 2014…

DSCF0239 DSCF0242 DSCF0252I’d rather clean my house with a tooth brush than go on a no-buy rule. However, I have many brave friends that are doing just that. What I can do is slow down and not buy ALL THE COLLECTION!!! This is my attempt at that and, a successful one at that! ‘Too Dimensional?’ is from L’Oreal’s Color Riche Gold Dust Textured Collection.

It’s just a busy lil’ polish, I tell ya…

DSCF0255 DSCF0246If you don’t like your polishes rough, you may or may not care for this one. However, I think it is practically smooth compared to most glitter polishes. This polish, even though it was on the thicker side, laid down flat and easily. It isn’t glass smooth but has the feeling of a very soft linen cloth.

I have on three coats. Two would have been just fine. I was just blogging and reading blogs and was putting on a third coat before I even realized it was #3…

Quite a dazzler, in my opinion. I didn’t bother with a top coat as I love the matted look. As of today, I have had this polish on for 7 days. I have worked 3 of those and don’t have but the most microscopic wear. For $3.99, I picked this up at Rite Aid and I am getting my money’s worth.

Even though I didn’t apply this mani in 2014, it has carried me over into the New Year. Over the weekend, I will pick a new mani but, it hasn’t been hard at all wearing this one for over a week. I am not tired of it.

This shade is sort of blue. It’s sort of gray. It’s sort of purple too. And, it’s festive enough to not seem like a New Year’s Eve party leftover.

With all the dimensions that are going on with ‘Too Dimensional?’, what will they come up with next for 2014? I’m super curious! Have you heard anything?

 

 

Newest Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Collection 2013

The colors for both nail polishes and eye shadows have been so appealing this summer. I don’t think I have been this pleased with summer shades. When I saw the new Sally Hansen LE polish collection, I have to admit, it was the ‘LE’ that reeled me in. I managed to pick just 3…

And, if ‘Royal Invite’ looks like the night sky, then ‘On Parade’ is the morning sun…
