L'Oreal Sweet Nothings

I love peach and coral shades.

I have a problem though, peach shades tend to make my hands look ghastly.

I have been on the hunt for a peachy color that flatters my skin tone.  I have been tempted to pick up essie's A Crewed Interest, but I have never purchased it because of its bi-polar reviews.  So while I was in Target using my coupons from my summer beauty bag I picked up 3 clearance polishes, two of which I could use coupons for.  I picked up Revlon ColorStay in Delicious, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Parchment, and L'Oreal Sweet Nothings.

I had picked up and compared Sweet Nothings to A Crewed Interest and noted their similar peachy toned hue.  The main difference appeared to be their opacity (which made A Crewed Interest look a tad chalky).  Here is a peek at Sweet Nothings...

The Verdict:
This is a rather sheer, but buildable polish (picture shows three coats with no top coat).  I like the color, it is peachy but flattering.  I wish it would have had better coverage.  A few days later I added another coat and it was even more opaque and a slightly brighter peach.  I still need to find my perfect peach, although this was flattering and applied like butter.  It's very pretty and I plan on wearing it again.  It would look great with glitters and I'm wondering if I can sandwich with it...only time will tell:)

L'Oreal nail polish can be purchased at pharmacies and retails for around $5 each.


  1. It's a shame about the coverage, but it is a stunning colour! I love the nude look! xx

  2. I think it looks really good on you! Very clean and elegant. Personally, I think L'oreal polish needs some more love. I have several and I think they are great (at least they work great for me)!

    PS This is a great swatch. By that I mean the pictures are good and you did a nice job painting/presenting the polish. I think it's actually one of the best swatches of L'oreal polishes I've seen yet!

    1. Thank you so much for your incredible compliment! This is actually the first L'Oreal polish I have tried, and it definitely won't be my last!
