L'Oreal Nail Polishes - massive Essie Dupe for Fiji!




There are so many high-end nail polish brands out there that are well loved: OPI, Deborah Lippman, Butter London, Chanel, Dior... And there's dozens of high-street/drugstore polishes that are surrounded by hype, too - Rimmel 60 Seconds, Essie, Maybelline Colour Show, Model's Own, and who could forget Barry M?

For being such a large and popular high-street brand, L'Oreal's nail polishes hardly ever get talked about! Ok, so I'll admit I've heard a tiny bit about their Les Blancs collection, but apart from that there's been no mention! I find this outrageous as they are the best nail polishes I have ever used. The formula is second to none - not too gloopy and thick, but not too runny either. It only takes 2 coats to achieve a perfect opaque finish. With 2 coats, I go usually around 4 days chip free - without a top coat might I add! (I know, what a rebel)


Currently I'm wearing shade 201 Rose Paradis which is a perfect dupe for one of the most hyped colours in recent years - Essie's Fiji.
This is the only shade I've tried from L'Oreal which takes a few more coats to become opaque. I'd say at least three, but I haven't tried any other Essie dupes such as Barry M's Rose Hip so I can't really compare. I'd say it's the perfect "your nails but better" shade, brilliant for French manicures if you have a steady enough hand for that sort of thing - which I certainly don't!

At £4.99, they're not only amazing but reasonably priced, too! They are the best nail polishes I've tried on the market. I don't waste my money trying any other brands unless I particularly LOVE a unique shade or I've been recommended them by a person I trust.

What's your favourite brand for nail polishes?

  1. I could not possibly choose my favourite branded nail polish, but I've never tried L'oreal. I think I'm going to!

  6. I hardly see anyone talk about loreal polishes- that's probably why I haven't tried them yet! It does look like they have lots of hidden gems in their line though! I'll definitely try them out soon because their prices are a lot more reasonable than other brands
