Sometimes, nothin’ beats playing with nail polish, especially when you’re having a less-than-idilic day.
You know how it goes… Some days are just better than others, and today was not one of my better days. Couldn’t write to save my life, but things did start looking up when I started seeing L’Oreal’s Nail Color Riche line on my nails ($5.99 each, available now in dozens of shades).
You know what they say — when all else fails, swatch.
Here are pics of a baker’s dozen of them, a sampling of 13 of the new spring shades in the Color Riche line. Of these, Safari Chic is probably my fave (I’m wearing it on my toes right now), but dark blue After Hours, metallic teal VIP Status and He Red My Mind are serious contenders.
I’m wearing three coats here, which seems to be the sweet spot, at least for me. A few of the lighter colors apply a little streaky.
Other than that, I like the formula. It’s a little thick, and still very smooth, and after almost two weeks on my toes (with a base and top coat), Safari Chic looks as good as new.

Have you tried any of these colors or any of the others in the Color Riche line? What do you think about them? Based on these and the durability of Safari Chic, I’m thinking they’re worth more than $5.99.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. How’s it going out there tonight? Could you spare a hug? Tabs is being greedy with his.
