L'Oreal-Owl's Night

I know I said I'd try to do some Halloween manis, but I couldn't NOT wear this beauty. I know this has been hard to find for some people, but when I went to Rite Aid the other day there were several in the little collection case thing. *shrugs* Maybe Charleston as a whole doesn't care about nail polish like other cities. Anyway, enough of my blah blah blahing and on to the polish.

Owl's Night is a part of the LE Project Runway collection. I actually still really like PR. Do you guys watch it? Anyway, it's a dark brown with olive green shimmer. Or...something. I truly can't sum on what this polish is. When I first saw it I thought olive green, but on the nail it reads brown. I don't know, I just know it's gorgeous. (Speaking off, are there any brown and (preferably olive) green duochromes out there? I'd LOVE a polish like that.) The shimmer is out of this world. It glows, even inside. There's also a hint of orange shimmer in the polish.

This is two coats. Maybe I should have done three, but oh well. There's a slight (and I mean slight) little streak that's visible in pictures, but not really in person. But I blame that on how I was painting my nails. I did a few with very thin coats and the others with very thick. But the formula itself was pretty good. Dried okay I guess. Not fast but not super slow. Very much average.

This is my first L'Oreal polish so I was curious about the brush. I don't like it. It seems too...stiff. I know not everyone has the OPI wide brush, but I think it can be better. Or maybe I just need to get used to it. And I love the bottle design. I partial to square bottles, what can I say? It's really cute and I like the top. Not the a-typical black circular top.

I love this so so so very much. Maybe there's a dupe out there, but I don't have anything like this in my collection. It's really unique. I think this may be my favorite polish of the fall collections so far. (I feel like I say that all the time, but it's true!) Are all L'Oreal polishes like this? I may need to see what else they have. Damn my nail junkie tendencies. :)

  2. I can't find it in any of my stores, but a girlfriend sent it to me - SO glad. Your swatches have me drooling! I'm in the midst of showing off Halloween polishes but this makes me want to stop and just slap this on. Gorgeous! I love the L'Oreal bottle, but it's been so many years since I bought one of their polishes I've almost forgotten what the brush is like. I want to see if I can go back and nab the gold one from this collection too - very eye-catching!

  3. Nail Designs-WOO HOO! You'll love it. :)

    Nicole-It's surprising to me that not everywhere has this yet. There were several bottles just sitting there to be taken. Maybe I'm just being picky with the brush? I felt it could have been better. And this one polish makes me want the rest of the collection. Whether I get it or not is a different story...

  4. I'm so glad you were able to find this! This is one I actually want to wear again right now. I love Project Runway...this season has been really good.

  5. KayJay-I'm finding it amazing people can't find this. We may get things two weeks later, but they're always in abundance. Except for the WnW On the Prowl collection. Can't find that anywhere.

    PR has been good this season. Much better than the past two seasons.
