For the sake of beauty blogging...

+Andrew  is going to be mad at me because I caved at the drugstore today.
I bought two nail polishes, both from L’Oreal Paris’s Color Riche line. These polishes claim to have 10-day wear. Personally, I can’t imagine anything lasting that long on my nails that isn’t acrylic or gel. But, time to find out!

Anyways, the two colors I bought were “Eiffel For You” and “Charmed, I’m Sure.” Currently, “Eiffel For You” is on my nails.

As you can see, it’s very much a true taupe color. It’s also one of those “I have something like it, but it’s not exactly like it so I’m going to buy it anyways” colors. My boyfriend would say “It’s just like that other nude one you have” (aka Sephora by O.P.I.’s “Don’t Feed the Hand Models”). The thing is, that one is a nude. This is a taupe. Aaand this is me justifying my purchase.

The other color I bought, “Charmed, I’m Sure,” is a color I really hesitated about getting. It’s a rose gold. I’ve said a million times that I look horrible in rose gold. Or really just any gold in general. But I’m hoping that because this color is a bit more on the pink side, it will look good on me. And if it doesn’t, I can always give it to a friend. 

One of these days I’ll figure out how to make my fingers photogenic.
