L'Oreal Sexy Textured Purples

Hello, Fireflies!

I'm not sick of textured polishes yet! I'm not! I'm proud, and I'm not backing down!

I mean, they're glitter, and glitter is forever.  And if you don't like the feel, slap a topcoat on it, and Bob's your uncle.

I picked up two from the L'Oreal Gold Dust textured polishes - Too Dimensional? (the periwinkle with gold) and Sexy In Sequins (the eggplant).  I wanted them ALL, but cooler heads, and tighter wallets prevailed.

I was not disappointed.  These are so easy to apply, wear like iron, and are gorgeous.  I made a little French tip in the opposite color for fun - obviously the dark purple showed up better on the periwinkle than the other way around, but I still enjoyed the look.

I didn't have too much trouble removing them, but one tip I'm loving is to use a felt square to remove textured polish or glitter.  It stays together and lasts longer than cotton pads - and are often reusable, if soaked in acetone.  No more little cotton fibers sticking to your nails, either!


When the pix is blurred a little, it's easier to see that fantastic gold shimmer in Too Dimensional?.  Really makes that polish unique!

Are you riding the Texture Train?  For me, these were the standouts of the collection, though the teal is also pretty.  Which ones did you get, or would you?

    1. I'm glad I'm not alone in still loving texture! Seems like 'crackle' was a dirty word before it even got popular, but this is a trend that's sticking around!

  4. Lovely, I'm still well on that textured train. I picked up two of this line when I was in the US but didn't see these two (otherwise I would have had them too). I'd not heard about using a felt square to remove them, so I might give that a go, thanks for the tip!

    1. I didn't realize these weren't available readily outside the US? Interesting, since the company name is L'Oreal Paris! Which ones did you pick up? I think they're all pretty!

    1. They do smooth out perfectly with Seche Vite or another glossy, thick topcoat. These textures that have glitter in them are perfect for that.

  15. I still love textured too, and this shade is particularly gorgeous!

    1. Most of the textures I prefer have a glitter that pops, like this gold shimmer. I much prefer them over the plain creme textures.
