Mani Monday | L'oreal Collection Exclusive Colour Riche Nail Polish In Doutzen's Nude #600

These days, it seems like nude everything is taking over. For me, nude's have always been a staple, especially when it comes to makeup. But, nude's seem to have taken on a bit of welcome twist. With muted shades of taupe, purple, and pink, the new nudes are not only modern but also classic. They are also showing up in fashion too which I'm loving as well. There are nudes for every skin tone as well. Many nudes can wash me out. I prefer nudes with hints of purple or pink. Nudes with peach undertones don't seem to suit my skin tone so much.

I remember when L'oreal came out with this nude collection of lip and nail colours, each one was created with one of six models and actresses. When the line first came out, I purchased J'Lo's Nude lipstick which is one of my favourite lipsticks to date if not my top one!

The other day while shopping, this nail colour from the same line was screaming my name as I walked by so I had to pick it up. As much as I adore this colour, I would say the colour is a bit off for my skin tone, but that's not going to stop me from wearing it. It's such a modern and chic colour. I love the formula of this polish too, it's not as quick to chip as many other polishes.

The colour is a gorgeous, muted taupy-purple ie. a muted mauve. It's very unique and the only colour in my collection that is similar is another new shade that I purchased right before I purchased this one. It was actually featured in a Mani Monday post a few weeks ago (linked here), it's Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri in Making Mauves. The Sally Hansen colour has some subtle shimmer to it, while this one by L'oreal does not.

I'm wearing it here with 3 coats. No base or top coat, I'm too lazy and impatient for all those layers. Although, as you can see from my nail polish skills (or lack of), I should probably learn to be a little more patient.

From L'oreal:
"Our formula delivers intense, luxurious colour and up to 10 days of shine.  Available in a delicious spectrum of must-have shades, the collection is curated by L’Oréal’s exclusive Colour Designer, Orrea Light, to bring you the most glamorous colours straight from Paris. Our new easy-to-use brush provides ideal coverage for the ultimate chic look."

Although this colour may not be perfect for my skin tone, I'm really drawn to it and I've been wearing it often. It goes with everything, it's great for the fall time, and I think it's very unique.

All 6 shades from this line are linked here.
