L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Opera Ballerina
As I said yesterday, the only reason I bought this polish is because there was a 3 for 2 offer on in Superdrug and nothing else caught my eye. There was a lot of shades similar to Opera Ballerina and I really wish I'd grabbed them all now.
Each bottle is what most nail polish brands would class as mini. The brush is paddle shaped, and apparently the polish has a built-in top coat. I never believe the built-in top coat claim so applied my own. Application was so simple because of the brush, I cant fault it. I usually hate sheer colours and do as many coats as it takes to make the colour opaque but Opera Ballerina was gorgeous even with one coat.
VNL is usually the enemy but I really like how this looks. I done 3 coats and didnt experience any streaks at all. The polish dried fast even before I used a quick dry top coat but it didnt fully harden, I woke up with sheet marks even though I'd painted my nails hours before bed.
Opera Ballerina is really similar to O.P.I Bubble Bath, minus the streaks and from swatches I've saw online it seems quite close to Essie Ballet Slippers.
