L'Oreal Skinny Jeans

 *gift from a friend*

I received L'Oreal Skinny Jeans as a gift from a student in late June and it's been languishing in my untrieds drawer ever since. I am not really sure why, it's a lovely color in the bottle. I think the last time I tried a lighter hued L'Oreal, I had to use four coats, so it's possible I was too lazy to deal with that. I also thought that Skinny Jeans was a creme polish and might be streaky/hard to apply/thick/whatever. Well, surprise, surprise! Skinny Jeans is a texture! A stunning periwinkle lavender texture! I remember seeing info somewhere about the collection Skinny Jeans was in, but I guess I wasn't paying attention because I had no clue it was a texture. I am still really into textures when I am too busy to do a real base coat/2-3 coats/top coat mani, so I am very happy to have a texture in this gorgeous bright blue shade.

This is two super easy coats of Skinny Jeans. It was easy as pie to apply, no issues at all. The texture isn't super rough or scratchy and the polish dries quickly. New nail pajamas for me!

Now, this collection was limited edition, but I did see it recently at Walgreen's, so if you look around you might still be able to get this polish.
