L'Oreal Gold Dust

I saw peeks of these textures on someone's blog (I don't remember who!) and I fell in love with them! They were so unique and I am such a sucker for textured polishes that I knew I had to have them. When I finally found them some of them just looked so much like others I had that I had to pass on them but these are the 5 I picked up. 

This is Pop The Bubbles
This was two coats. 
It's a very pretty blue leaning green, and not only is it a sparkly texture but it has the smaller hex in it that I love in a texture.
So I'm always curious as to how textures look with topcoat. My two inner fingers have topcoat on them. It definitely deepens the color and it's so sparkly, it's a toss up, I like it both ways. 

Next is Sexy In Sequins
This one has so much going on, it's got a gold and copper shimmer with lighter purple flashes. It's almost borderline duochrome. 
This was two coats.
For this one topcoat doesn't really make me like it any better, I think it looks better as a texture. 

This is Too Dimensional?
I really wanted to love this one. I did. In the bottle it was beautiful but on the nail it was lacking. 
This one had more of a jelly base than the rest and it took 3 coats. 
I definitely like this one more with topcoat, it brings out the purple more and mutes the gold which I like. 

Next is Reign Of The Studs
I like this one, but again it felt like one that I have somewhere in my stash. 
This is two coats. 
I like this one both with and without topcoat, it's a toss up. 

Lastly, this is Hidden Gems. 
I don't remember how many coats this was, probably 2-3. 
This one also has a duochrome like quality to it, it flashes blue and purple. 
I really thought I would like this one, but the silver hex clash too much with the dark blue/black to me. I think that maybe it would be better as an accent nail or in nail art. 

Which one is your favorite? Do you like them with or without topcoat?

  1. These textured polishes are so pretty on their own but when you add topcoat... BOOM! I can't figure out which way I like more. ;)
