L’Oréal — Greige Amoureux (Colour Riche Le Vernis à l’Huile) Swatch & Review

Collection: L’Oréal Summer 2016, Le Vernis à l’Huile Nail Lacquer [Launch]

Since L’Oréal’s Le Vernis à l’Huile polishes launched in Canada last summer, I’ve accumulated—how do I say this elegantly—a metric buttload of them. Yes, I kind of love these polishes! The formula is one of the best in the drugstore, the colors are lush and trendy, and the bottle is pretty as a jewel.

Here’s Greige Amoureux (664), one of the original launch colors. It’s a beautiful taupe grey cream that dries on the nail a shade or so deeper than the color in the bottle. It’s a bit of a shame, as I think I prefer the bottle color, but it still remains a very chic grey.

I’ll just repeat what I’ve said in the past about other polishes in this line—they’ve been pretty consistent, so far! Application is nice and smooth. I used three coats for the swatch to get an extra plush look, but honestly, this is good with two coats if you can’t be bothered.

This polish is scented, and when dry it has that unique L’Oréal lipstick fragrance.

Should you require a chic and office-friendly polish, this is a great drugstore option. It’s pretty much priced like Essie (both owned by L’Oréal) these days, at CA$9.99 vs. a buck or two more for Essie in Canada. When they go on sale, the prices are pretty much the same.

L’Oréal was founded in 1909 and is the largest cosmetics company in the world. It is based in Clichy (a suburb of Paris), France. Its first product was a hair dye called Auréale, which presumably led to the development of the company’s present name.

  1. I was hoping this wouldn’t dry darker… I really like the bottle colour!
    I’m happy to report that the Sauvage Rouge wore EXTREMELY well. Full 7 days not a chip or even really visible tip wear. I’m amazed. ❤
