I came here to post a review specifically so I would have a reminder to never again buy L'Oreal nail polish. The formula is just awful. A gloppy mess that's difficult to work with. Such a disappointment!

L'Oreal nail polish, IMO, is one of the worst drug-store brands on the market. These retail for around $6.00. For that price, I expect a good polish that will apply well and last without chipping. The range of colors is very good but the application is the worst. I have had 99-cent cheapies apply better. Right out of the bottle, the formula was very thick and gloopy. Even after thinning, it was still hard to work with. Think of any kind of bad application problem and this stuff has it. It applied streaky whether there was too much or too little product on the brush. I had issues with tip pulling and dragging. Attempts to fan the brush and push back to the cuticle resulted in a gloopy mess at the cuticle edge. Also, the polish seems to be drying almost as you paint resulting in serious dragging issues. The dry time was very short and the polish was not as shiny as I would have liked. After a topcoat and Seche Vite it was shiny though. The only thing I like about this polish is the square bottle. Therefore, this branch of polish is one that I will avoid in the future.

I've bought 3 different colors of L'Oreal nail colors! I love that it dries SO fast, I only wait a minute between coats. Two coats is enough to make it acceptably opaque. The shine is so great too, it doesnt get too dull too fast (without top coat). It lasts me about 3 days with minimal chipping, which I think is pretty good for the price.
I will probably buy more in the future. At the moment, Butterfly kisses is my favorite color :)

I really like the staying power of this nail polish. I have Tweet Me & Penthouse Pink. If the pink wears aslong as the yellow, I'll be hooked. I work in a kitchen, doing dishes. I wore Tweet Me, 2 coats no topcoat (feeling lazy!) and had no chips by the end of the night. So pleased.

I bought this in Safari Chic and the top coat and base coat, figuring it would work better if I had all the parts. Was I wrong LOL It chipped within 12 hours (of sleeping!!)... it's supposed to last 10 days! I emailed them to complain and they sent me $25 worth of coupons for free stuff so they have amazing customer service, which is why I would buy this product again.

This is the worst nail polish I have tried!! Even Revlon polishes are better! Its streaky, it takes forever too dry and you can never put too many coats to get decent coverage! Don't buy this! Ever

I am a little shocked by all the bad reviews! I dont think this is the best nail polish I own but I do like the formula. I noticed a lot of people said you need a lot of coats which I guess is true, it took me 3 coats to make it fully opaque. I have had the same sort of issues with *SOME* OPI nail polishes though but not all (example being 'listen to your momager from the kardashian kollection) but the consistency is something I like because its a more sheer and less goopy and thick polish and I just hate thick nail polishes, Ive had a lot of problems with sally hansen nail polish for that reason. I didnt find that it took very long to dry. There is a possibilty that I just got a very good one but if all of them are like the one I bought then I really do like this nail polish. For the record the one I have purchased is "104 Penthouse Pink" Also the price is not too bad considering prices of other polishes, Im from Canada and I got mine for around 7 dollars I believe.

I'll admit it. I'm a nail polish addict. So when I saw that L'Oreal, a well-known and trusted make up/hair product brand, had come out with a new line of polishes, I couldn't resist. On the display, they had so many beautiful colors but only bought one to see how I'd like it. I thought, "What's the harm? It can't be that bad, it almost cost five dollars, which isn't cheap."
The color that I bought was called Tangerine Crush, a really great Spring color; kind of coral/orange/pink, and really pops on the nails. I've gotten several compliments on it.
However, the formula was lacking. For a five dollar bottle of nail polish, I expect quality rivaling other five dollar nail polishes (e.g., Revlon, China Glaze, etc.).Not to mention, this is L'Oreal. It was a streaky nightmare; 3 coats just to get an even coverage, and didn't dry very quickly. The brush was a little odd in that it would make more streaks instead of covering the bare spots up well. After three coats, I was fed up and it still didn't look great; a lot of collection around the cuticles, some uneven spots that you can only see close-up.
I figured, since I'd put on base coat, three coats of nail polish, and Seche Vite, I'd at least be good on wear. Nope, one of them chipped the next day.
At this point I'm praying that I just got a defective bottle. If this is how all of them are, then I definitely will not be buying any more. Such a shame, because they're all so pretty!

For a cosmetics company, like L'Oreal, I expect quality. They're on the high end of drugstore brands. They make wonderful mascara like Voluminous. The HIP line was a success. But that's where it stops for me. They should just stick to making cosmetics and leave nail polish to professionals.
At the beginning of this year, I saw L'Oreal nail polish marked down 70% and decided that this was awesome. I believe my correct statement to the display was, "This is my chance to sample some goodness!"
I picked up French Tip White and Pearly White.
Oh, wait. Do you hear that? I think its the failboat coming into port.
At first when I tried using French tip white, I thought it was me doing something wrong. It has this funky slanted brush which I figured were for drawing thin lines across your nails for a french mani. The days when I had short nails are long over though.
Anyways, the formula was gloopy, thick, and went on way too sheer. The brush strokes were horrible and took me way too many coats to become opaque.
To paint one hand it took me 45 minutes. I had to wait to for the polish to dry completely before adding another coat. So 45 divided by 6 (yes, six coats)... That's a lot of time I'm never going to get back.
I've considered the polish could have been old. I mean I wanted to like it because the only white polish I have is WnW's White Cream and Confetti's White Wedding. Both are somewhat lacking in the formula department too. But trying this polish made me never want to try another L'Oreal polish again.

I have 2 colors (Ragin' Cajun and Muavie Star) from L'Oreal. Both look very different on my nails than the color in the bottle.. I hate that!
The polish itself is a decent quality for the price. You only need 1 coat, 2 if you want the color completely opaque. So, I gave this brand a 2 out of 5.

I'm so confused as to why this product has SUCH bad reviews! I LOVE this polish! It's all the way up next to OPI and China Glaze! This glides on SO well and the color is very very opaque. I'm in love with the brush it has!! It doesn't chip until the 3-4 day up really, OPI ALWAYS chips by the third day so...
Yeah, anyway! SO HAPPY WITH THIS! :D xx

loreal polishes suck... they chip in the same day and are too thick and goopy... will never buy it again...
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
These polishes chip easily and do not last long. I prefer OPI & China Glaze but you get what you pay for

I bought a sheer loreal nail polish. It's much thinner than essie, opi, revlon or sephora polishes. It dries fast. It's streaky initially but becomes slightly less so when it dries. I don't like it. It's only 3-4$ less than opi and essie here in canada. I'm cheap but nail polishes bottles take forever to run out, so I think it's worth the investment. It chips fast and isn't as good as some of the cheaper polishes.

OPI is normally my HG polish but before discovering it, I used to use L'Oreal. On impulse I bought this L'Oreal just to see how it compared. Big, BIG mistake. This was the WORST polish I have ever used. The application was a nightmare. It went on gloopy and streaky - almost like painting with a too-dry paintbrush. Adding more polish to the brush just made for a gloopier, heavier mess. After one coat and one hand I gave up. This is absolute garbage!

This and China Glaze are my HG nail polishes!!! I have ridged nails and this goes on smoothly with no streaks and dries fairly fast. Lasts longer than most polishes too. Love when they are in clearance and buy 1 get 1 free...my favorites are the limited edition shades though!!!!!! Wayyy better than OPI (believe it's overrated)...I have tons of OPI and I tend to use this more because the application is just less tedious!

I've tried a lot of brands. I've very impressed with this. Good consistency, application, and shine. I'm very impressed with the wear and durability. I used Satin Starlet and love the sheer white color.

I love this consistency of the nail polish, a great variety of colors. I absolutely adore the color 'Drama Queen', it simply looks fantastic on my fair complexion!

I bought Fanatic Fuchsia # 262. It's a beautiful pink'd berry color and applies true to bottle color. It is almost an exact dupe of ChG Designer Satin. While I love the color and the look of the bottle, it applied like most of the other L'Oreals in this line. First coat goes on fine, but subsequent coats become uneven and very difficult to get a smooth surface.
Separately, I bought Fuchsia Fanatic #282 (yes, very sim. name but diff. no. and very diff color.) Fuchsia Fanatic is a bright pink. Beautiful true bright pink that doesn't pull to coral even on my super-pale bluish corpsey complexion. It's almost dupey to CC Overboard. Again, a great color, but does not apply smoothly. Subsequent coats pull polish from previous coats and the whole thing becomes very messy. Such a shame, cause the color's lovely.
And while many like the wide brush, it doesn't work for me. It's a little too wide and stiff for good control. With the availability of salon quality np at less than $5/bottle from several etailers, L'Oreal at 4.99-5.99 at drugstores with application issues doesn't make a lot of sense. I'll probably avoid them in future unless they come out with some never-heretofore-seen-most-amazing-np-color-of-all-time. Unless, of course, they do a serious re-work of their formula.

I have this in Breaking Curfew and it is a beautiful, rich chocolate-cherry shade in the bottle. However, when applying it, it is streaky and does not apply well and I did not like the brush. Sometimes I don't want to pay the prices for OPI and when I try something more economical, I'm instantly reminded why OPI is worth the money.
