L'Oreal - Charmed, I'm Sure


     Today I'm sharing another polish that I wore a few months back, In fact, I've already blogged a little about Charmed, I'm sure because I used it in a nail art look for spring. And to be honest this is probably a better color for springtime than it is for fall but hey, I don't always follow the rules and am a firm believer in wearing whatever color suits your mood.

     L'Oreal Charmed, I'm Sure is a light camel colored shimmer polish with subtle scattered holographic glitters.  I don't know what it is but I'm drawn to metallic and jeweled toned polishes. I find myself reaching for them in the stores, and from my helmer drawers when trying to pick a polish to wear. 


    The formula was a bit on the thin side, but not so thin that it wanted to pool at my cuticles. Surprisingly it's extremely opaque and was almost a 1 coater for me. Yes, you read that right, this thin formula polish was almost a 1 coater!  The polish was easy to work with and went exactly where I wanted it to on my nails. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat. To say I was shocked at the coverage would be an understatement. I don't think it works well for stamping but it might be great in a water marble. I'll have to try it out and let you know in a future post. 

     

     Like all shimmer nail polish, Charmed, I'm sure does suffer from the dreaded brushstrokes but as you can see from my photos they are minimal. As we all know the camera picks up more than the naked eye, so what you see on the nail is even less. 



     Now normally a camel colored shimmer polish might not catch my attention but this reminded me of a lighter version of Essie's Penny Talk so I had to pick it up. And then I saw the subtle holo (which sadly decided to be shy during my photo session) and I knew it would be a color I'd enjoy. If I somehow ended up in a job that only allows neutral nail polish this would be one of my go-to's. Do you have a favorite neutral polish? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
