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?

    Beautiful! I thought L’Oreal did a great job with these! Is this polish over your acrylics?! I always felt like polish lasted longer on acrylic nails than it does on natural nails. Do you find that, too?! I couldn’t resist picking up this one and Hidden Gems!!! πŸ™‚

    • I got old-school gels and it is over them. They do adhere a bit better. I wanted Hidden Gems too but went with Too Dimensional? because I don’t have anything quite like it….I hope!

  • erikatheicyone

    That is so pretty and it looks so good on you. The one thing I miss about acrylics is the long polish wear. Polish lasted forever on acrylics. I think I need to try a couple of these Loreal Gold Dust polishes. Your pictures have pushed me over the edge. πŸ˜€

    • I hope you are able to find these. I have only seen two displays out of them and they were both at Rite Aid.

  • I haven’t found these yet, but they look awesome!

    • I’m wondering if drugstores didn’t buy too broad on every day makeup collections during their holiday budget. ??

  • Anastasia

    Very lovely color, I don’t think we have them here yet, but I’ll be on the lookout πŸ™‚

    • Looks like these will be hard to come by. Good to know so if anyone is thinking about it, have your mind made up because it won’t be there when you go back. :/

  • that is super pretty! i’m usually not much for L’Oreal polishes, but they’ve been killing it lately, and I might have to pick some up!

    • They have been killin’ it lately, yes! Maybe they hired on a brand-new bunch of creative forces.

  • I love this! It’s really pretty, and I know it will look good on me lol

  • Cool color

  • So pretty. I finally picked a few of these up, now I can’t wait to use them.

  • Mai

    I love the color but I’m not too fond of that rough feeling on my nails. Beautiful though!

    • I got used to the texture fairly fast. But, it’s there!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    Love this color combo! And I’m a texture fan, so I need this!

    • I am so surprised that I am a fan of texture. I thought it would bug the crap out of me. Who knew?!!!

  • The L’Oreal texture polishes look awesome, I like the black one as well!

    • I’ll try not to remember what the black one looks like because I know it was one that I REALLY wanted to get as well!!! πŸ˜‰

  • MyNewestAddiction

    I have been loving textured polishes lately!

    • It’s about the only ‘new’ thing out there to date. LOL!

  • Harshleen

    That’s such a pretty polish! I need it!

    • I am happy with the one choice I picked, yes!

  • Nidia Doherty

    I love most textured polishes. I picked up that one and Sexy in Sequins, but they are both sitting in my untrieds. Need to change that!

    • Go dig through those untrieds!!

  • marciaf

    I’m not a fan of textured nails but this one looks pretty.

    • Marcia, you must be soooo ready for the next trend, then! I would love to know what it is going to be.

  • Love this shade!

    • I like a color that can’t make up its mind….LOL!

  • While I’m not a fan of textured polishes, this color is gorgeous!

    • I’ve been so surprised about liking most textures. But one I have coming up… will turn almost everyone away from textures. Hint: China Glaze Chrome.

  • Found this last night, and applying it as I type!
