L'Oreal Gorgeous Gold and Silver Sparkle

This week flew!!! Wow!  So I was at Walgreens a couple times this week and kept eyeing these two colors.  Well I finally decided to check the price since the display didn't have it listed and found these were buy 1, get one 50% off!  I figured, hey, why not!  So I went for it!  L'Oreal was listed for $5.99 I believe, so 2 for about $9 isn't so bad! 

Gorgeous Gold - 168 - is this really shiny gold color with a gorgeous shimmer through it, almost like tiny green little specks.  It also has gold hexagons throughout it.  I so wish I would have had sunlight to capture this, but then sun was already down last night!  Sorry!  It looks kind of lumpy in the pics, but in person it is so neat to get the random glitter pieces shinning.  I used 2 coats for the pictures and threw on a coat of Seche Vite for good measure.

Silver Sparkle - 162 - is a sheer off white/champagne color with a hint of light pink.  It contains brown speckled glitter with iridescent glitter in it.  I used 3 coats for the pictures with no top coat.
Iridescent Glitter!
 The I wanted to try Silver Sparkle over black to see how the glitters looked!  I really liked they way it turned out!  I only used onecoat over black with no top coat.

Overall, I don't usually tend to buy drug store brand polish!  Not for any particular reason, but mostly because I've been enjoying the Indie/Franken polish and also because I was collecting brands like OPI, Zoya, and China Glaze.  So this was a nice change for me to try something new.  These are my first L'Oreals, although I do kick myself for not getting one a while back, I swear it had something in the name of Owl?  I grabbed that and set it down about 20 times and ended up never getting it, lol!  But I did notice the formula on these two were thick.  They applied well though, so I can see myself using these in the future.  I think especially with the Silver Sparkle doing combinations, possibly even the Gorgeous Gold with the right base!  Hmmmm my wheels are turning!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Make sure you do at least 1 thing that makes you smile, because hey, life is too short!  I'll probably sit back and enjoy a movie or two, reread parts of Hunger Games, since I spent most of last weekend rapidly reading them to find out how they ended!  I took it all in, but I'm still hooked on it!  I thought they were very well written and I'm excited to see the other movies in the future!  Now the waiting is the hard part!!

Much Love,


  1. I love the gold one. I have a few L'Oreals (Got them for a buck each in the clearance bin!) and I've also noticed a thicker formula.

    Love your advice :)

  2. You might be thinking of Owl's Night. From the swatches I've seen, it's really pretty :D

  3. These are gorgeous! I love them both, will be on the lookout for these!

  4. I think especially with the Silver Sparkle doing combinations, possibly even the Gorgeous Gold with the right base!
