NOTD: L'Oreal Color Riche in Beige Countess

I seem to be really into L'Oreal products at the moment and my collection of Color Riche polishes has been growing steadily as a result! I like these polishes because they're only 5ml so I stand a chance of actually using them up before they become too gloopy to use. They are £4.99 each but as with most drugstore products they are on offer quite regularly. I don't think I've paid full price for any of mine. 

Beige Countess is a neutral beige shade with a hint of pink. In some lights it looks very beige and in others it looks almost like a mauve-pink. It reminds me a little of Essie's Lady Like. It has a glossy cream finish; it's definitely shiny enough on it's own not to require a top coat for added shine. I always use a fast drying top coat, though.

I like the shape of the brush because it's wide and flat. Since these polishes are quite small I was anticipating a tiny brush so I was pleasantly surprised. My only issue with the brush is that the bristles are quite coarse which means the polish can look streaky. I find I have to apply three coats of almost all of the Color Riche polishes for this reason.  

In the photo above I used the Revlon ColorStay base coat, three coats of Beige Countess and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat. I think it's a nice neutral shade that I can see myself reaching for quite often.

What do you think?

  1. The color is very beautiful. Flesh tone and light pink nail colors are really in this season, plus you can hide the chips LOL. I erally like your blog and I'm now following:)

    1. I think this one is easier to wear than some really pale nude shades. Thank you for reading, commenting and following!xx
