Remember that time when I first discovered the L’Oreal Paris Infallible 2-Step Nail Colour? That was a good time. Apart from the storage issues (vertical? horizontal? wha??), I find I quite like the stuff! I stuck my fingers into three more shades that are out right right now:
l'oreal paris infallible 2-step nail colour in infinite lilac
L’Oreal Infallible 2-Step nail polish in Infinite Lilac (above; you can get this one from ulta.com). I used the top coat on only my ring finger. It darkens this pretty lilac-y pink shade just a smidge, and almost makes it into a fall shade. Know what else the top coat does? It somehow makes the polish coat dry faster. Or it seals it and helps the solvents evaporate faster. Or some kind of science thing.
l'oreal paris infallible 2-step nail colour in gris eternal
L’Oreal Infallible 2-Step nail polish in Gris Eternel (above; $10.96 at well.ca). And because it’s already nearing Fall, it’s important to look at shades like these so you can pick them up (especially if they happen to be on sale) for the coming season.
l'oreal paris infallible 2-step nail colour in ocean infini
L’Oreal Infallible 2-Step nail polish in Ocean Infini (above; $10.99 at well.ca). Jeebz. I love this shade. Murky. It’s murky. And shiny. And awesome. And didn’t stain my cuticles. Kinda great for Fall, huh?
Overall, despite the fact I absolutely didn’t need three more bottles of top coat, I really like the polish in these bottles. Application (2 coats + top for all of 'em), level, shine, and dry time (with the top coat) are all fairly splendid. They say it’s "up to 12 days of colour and shine perfection" but yeah... I get maybe three. But then again, as we all know, I use my hands pretty hard.
You tried it? You like it? You can get L'Oreal Paris Infallible 2-Step Nail Colour ($10.99 at well.ca) at mass market retailers and drugstores like Shoppers Drug Mart across Canada, and similar spots in the US. There's an indigo I've got my eyeballz on. For more information on the other whack of Infallible 2-Step Nail shades, visit L'OrealParis.ca.
