Pastel Nails: L’Oreal Color Riche Les Blancs Pistachio Dragée


!

L'Oreal Les Blancs Pistachio DrageeThis spring and summer is all about the pastels and it is no different in the nail department. As much as I love my dark reds, purples and blacks I am ready to put them aside and make space for airy fairy pastel shades. L’Oreal has had my attention for a while now with their latest nail offering being a gorgeous little collection of four white based shades: Les Blancs. The first one I’ve picked up to see if I like it is number 852 Pistachio Dragée, which is a gorgeous milky pistachio /  mint colour. I love the shade and am very happy with the formula of the polish, great coverage in two coats and good lasting power. It goes on a bit streaky with the first coat but the second coat makes everything look flawless.L'Oreal Les Blancs Pistachio Dragee

The only little thing I don’t love about this polish is the wide brush. I must be the only person on the planet who doesn’t like these but I have very small nails and it is hard for me to get precise edges with brushes like that. I’m sure all of you reading this will see it as a positive.L'Oreal Les Blancs Pistachio DrageeAll in all, I absolutely love this polish and will be picking up the other 3 gorgeous shades for sure. The other colours are also all white based (hence the name) – there is a gorgeous pale lavender (851 Nouvelle Vague), peach (856 Peach Neglige) and a gentle yellow (850 Lemon Meringue). They will all be making appearances on the blog in the coming weeks.

I love the fact that the Color Riche polishes come in small 5ml bottles. I never really finish the large nail polishes before they go gloopy.

    Wow! That shade is so much nicer on the nails than in the bottle! It looks almost white in the bottle but is the most gorge minty green on you… I need it.

      Yeah, it’s really gorgeous and really a bit greener than most of the other “mint” polishes. Love it & can’t wait to get the rest of the collection!
