Red, red, red, I am totally loving this L’Oreal red Rendezvous (#450). It looks opaque in the bottle but it goes on pretty thin and sheer. I put on three coats plus a top coat and they didn’t feel built up at all.
I absolutely love the tone of this red. Some reds, I find are really striking on my hands — I’ll catch a glimpse and think, “Yikes, that’s a bright red.” That isn’t the case with this one. It’s… more natural. I know, red nails being natural is not possible, but this red just doesn’t scream “Hey! LOOK AT ME!”.
As you can see I am trying to square my nail tips. I usually keep them pretty rounded but wanted to try it. I even bought myself some new flat clippers to get a straighter less curved tip. We’ll see. I had to file down the corners twice because they were catching on everything; including my eye when I rubbed it.
Update: I was surprised to find this chipped really easily within a day. I touched it up and it chipped again. Going to try it again this weekend with a different topcoat.
Update #2: I tried the polish with the Julep Freedom Polymer top coat and it faired much better than the previous two times I wore it.
