L’Oreal Pistachio Drage and Coco Tweed

These are the last of the L’Oreal polishes I bought and decided to swatch and share with you. The tweed topper is also my least favourite of the three I tried. Where I really liked the unusual colour combinations in Jackie and Grace Tweed, Coco Tweed in black and white just doesn’t excite me as much. I think I like the subtlety of the other polishes more and feel they’re a lot more wearable for me. They also feel pretty and summery which is great now that it’s hot and sunny every day and I’ve got all my summer clothes out. Coco Tweed is probably more suited to autumn and winter which is not what I’m feeling right now! It does apply really easily, just like the other Tweeds.

I do, however, love Pistachio Drage which is a perfect pale green, very fresh and spring like with a nice application (2 coats in the picture). I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this one.

So I hope you’ve enjoyed my swatches. I usually stick with nail art on this blog but think it’s nice to have something different from time to time, especially when I find a polish or collection that I think is fun and worth showing.

L’Oreal Peach Neglige and Jackie Tweed

Here’s the second of the L’Oreal polish combinations I bought in the three for two sale. I was most excited about Grace Tweed but bought the other two in the collection as well and am really surprised by how much I like Jackie Tweed!

I was really sceptical about these polishes when I saw them in the bottle but they look so much nicer on the nail than I thought they would. Jackie Tweed makes me think of ice-cream sprinkles and is a really fun one for summer.

I’d realised I didn’t own much in the way of peach polishes so was really happy to find a peach I liked and I think the tweed topper goes well with this shade

L’Oreal Nouvelle Vague and Grace Tweed

I saw the new L’Oreal polish collection while I was out shopping and really liked the pastel colours they had. I also noticed the tweeds that are part of the collection and as the polishes were only 2.45 € and 3 for 2 I thought it was a good chance to try them out. I have of course seen similar polishes like the Nails Inc Feathers polishes but I was never that excited by them and didn’t want to fork out a lot of cash for something I wasn’t sure about.

I’m glad I bought these L’Oreal polishes as I actually really like the tweed effect. Grace Tweed is a pretty combination of blue and white bars in a clear base and I think it looks great over the pastel Nouvelle Vague. Both polishes applied really nicely and I used two coats of Nouvelle Vague and one of Grace Tweed.

I’m on holiday at the moment and the wifi in the apartment I’m staying in is crap so I’ve posted this from my phone. It’s the first time I’ve used the wordpress app to post from my phone so I hope it looks ok!
