Hi everyone it's Sirenz! It’s been a while since I have had the pleasure to guest blog for Cid, but I was asked by the fabulous Cid from Cid’s Style file to review a couple of nail polishes. Now if anyone knows me, they know that I may not know a whole lot about fashion, but polishes…NOW THAT’S A WHOLE OTHER MONSTER! I think I may have a serious nail polish/nail art addiction! With that said, here is just a little tid-bit on what I thought about these polishes.
I had the opportunity to review L’Oreal’s Riche Nail Gold Dust polish line. The polishes are very shimmery! These polishes don’t require more than one coat, anything more and they can appear lumpy instead of chic…one of the best parts is they dry so quickly! They can be the one coat brush‘em and go polish when you’re in need of a quick nail polish and you don’t have the time. I have never really been a big fan of polishes with a whole lot of shimmer because removing it can be pain, but these seem to be come off with less rubbing than most. I had the opportunity to try c/o L’Oreal; “Diamond in the Rough”, “Pop the Bubbles “, and “Too Dimensional?” polishes. They actually went pretty well together for some of the quick manicure ideas I had on the spot.

In one of the manicures I did, you will see that I used “Diamond in the Rough” as a primary coat and used the Pop the Bubbles to accent the nails with a few polka dots. Those two colors went pretty well together. I will say that if you are looking to use these polishes for anything more than a single color (alone they look great btw), the next best thing would be to accent something that you would like to stand out. To attempt to create any designs that require a little more detail like a flower or such, they may not work very well (see attempted flower in one of the pictures). These polishes work best for single color manicures and/or maybe as an accent nail. As for how long they last, well I will have to do a follow up on exact time frames, but they claim to last 2 weeks. I don’t know about you, but if you’re anything like me you don’t have a maid or a butler to clean up after you or your family; so the variation of time for that perfect manicure may not last the intended time. I will surely put them to the test! Hope you all found this review helpful; it’s only my opinion of course! Have you tried any of these polishes from the L’Oreal’s Gold Dust polish line? If so, how did they measure up for you? I would love to hear about it!
