The lovely Rica is hitting off day 2 with some gorgeous swatches!
Make sure to show her some love, this is her first ever guest post :O <3
Hi Dolls! I'm Rica from www.justricarda.com. Lou is one of my favorite talented nail artists from Instagram. When she had offered me the chance to do a guest blog post for Tips and Topcoat, I was humbly honored. I hope I don't disappoint her readers! I'm excited about these four polishes that was recently added to my collection. For those who do not know me, I'm quite bit the polish collector. Currently, I have nearly 1,500 polishes in my collection. It's all cataloged on my blog under "My Polish Stash" - go have a look.Without further ado, here are the four gorgeous pastel colors from the Versailles Romance collection by L'Oreal Paris. This is their Spring 2013 limited edition collection. The four colors are: Royally Yours, Creme Puffs, Pistachio Dream, and Lacey Lilac.
What do you think of these pastel colors? This makes me think of Marie Antoinette eating macarons at the Versailles in the springtime! Macarons do come in assorted pastel colors. The color names L'Oreal Paris have assigned these polishes couldn't be any more perfect.
Creme Puffs is this soft pastel yellow creme with a subtle golden shimmer to it. It really does compliment my skin tone. This one takes 3 thin coats to full opacity. Unfortunately yellow nail polishes, in general, are notorious for streaking problems. There was some slight streaking with Creme Puffs but this was fixed by the third coat.
Pistachio Dream is this pastel mint green creme with a slight shimmer to it. This takes 3 coats to full opacity.
Lacey Lilac is this pastel-like lilac creme. This one takes 2 coats to full opacity.
Aren't these colors beautiful? I'm a sucker for pastels. Would I recommend these? Probably yes, even though most of the colors required 3 coats for full opacity. How can one NOT resist these beautiful fun pastel shades by L'Oreal Paris on their nails? I give this whole collection 3 out of 5 stars. I would have given this Versailles Romance collection higher rating if all the polishes took no more than 2 coats to achieve full opacity.
The Versailles Romance collection is a limited edition collection. They may be still available online via sites like amazon.com, your local drugstore, or any other store that carries L'Oreal Paris nail polishes.
