L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Vernis A L’Huile

L’Oreal has launched a pretty exciting new range of polishes -L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Vernis A L’Huile. These are exciting for a few reasons – one, because the packaging is a bit different and quite cool (a sort of cross between a Chanel-esque quilted bag and a little hand grenade?). Two – because the polish shades are a formula involving oil, to help care for and nourish whilst you add a touch of colour. I love it when I get to see a range of shades from a new launch in this way as you can immediately pick out favourites and it gives me visions of being one of those low maintenance girls with a capsule collection of just a select 20 polishes to see me through every season (what do you mean 20 polishes isn’t quite a ‘capsule’….?!)

Anyway, I digress. The selection of shades here really does tick the boxes for the something for all occasions type of situation. Whilst keeping the range pretty classic (there aren’t any green/mint/purple/yellow type of brights) you have everything from nudes, to metallic with the spectrums of pink and red in there too.


Top L-R: 112 Blanc de Lune, 116 Cafe de Nuit, 660 L’Or, 664 Greige Amoureux, 662 Moka Chic Bottom L-R: 332 Violet Vendome, 334 Violet De Nuit, 668 Bleu Royal, 670 Cobalt Indecent, 672 Gris Decadent, 666 Vert Absynthe


Top L-R: Clear (top & base), 114 Nude Demoiselle, 220 Dimanche Apres Midi, 222 Jardin Des Roses, 224 Rose Ballet, 226 Nymphea, 440 Cherie Macaron, 442 Coral Trianon, 550 Rose Sauvage, 552 Rubis Folies, 556 Grenat Irreverent

I immediately picked out a trio of favourites from the bunch and almost like I was excited for my US trip I opted for red white and blue… with a grey/taupe thrown in for good measure. In fact, it’s been on my trip to Florida that I’ve been putting the blue shade to the test as it’s my current pedicure shade. Apologies for the foot-shot but I wanted to give you a peek at how amazingly it’s holding up a week into the trip. I really love this colour and suspect it could be my Summer go-to pedicure shade as blue goes with pretty much everything I wear and I tend to have a weakness for blue shades and when it performs as well as this has so far (think lots of Disney walking and water parks etc) then can’t really fault it. The blue is shade 668 Bleu Royal and it’s a beaut.

Of course using a polish on your toes is different to your hands – but I currently have a gel shade on my hands so couldn’t test it there but wanted to share how impressed I’ve been with it so far! Of course this is only one shade and more than happy to give the whole bunch a swatch if you’re interested to see them all side by side. Just let me know and can do a follow up post!

But so far – big thumbs up for the L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Vernis A L’Huile

    I love L’oreal nail polishes! I think the Greige nail varnish is my favourite out of all of the shades above – One I will definitely be going to Boots to get it! x

    These sound so, so lovely and I adore the packaging – very Dior! The shade range is definitely perfect for me as well as I am a big nude/red fan. x

    The packaging on these is so gorgeous! I’m usually an Essie girl through and through but I have to say I’m tempted to give these a try… xx

    I think toes are trickier to get right anyway, so for them to look that good on your toes it definitely speaks of their quality. They look almost gel like!
