L'Oreal Color Riche in Rebel Blue

Today's post is a review on a new nail polish I picked up from Boots. It is from the new Colour Riche nails which is L'Oreal first long lasting mini nail collection, the shade I got was Rebel Blue. The collection contains 41 gel based colours designed by L'Oreal Paris' Colour Creative Director Orrea Light.
The choice of shades is great, the cost £4.99 for 5ml bottle which I do think is expensive.

I have previously showed you Ingenuos Rose here, French Riviera here and Rue Montmartre here.  Rebel Blue is such a lovely Blue shade, it even has a (very) slight shimmer to it.  It reminds me a lot of Nails Inc Baker Street which Beyonce wore after the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy.

The swatch above was with 2 coats applied and you can see it gives a great opaque finish.  Application is lovely and easy due to the fat fat brush (my favourite type of brush to apply nail polish). Though the consistency can be a little runny so just watch out!

What do you think? Overall I like this nail polish though its a tad expensive and I would certainly look at more shades. Have you tried them? Do you have a fave shade?

I love this shade of blue, perfect for summer! But I agree with you, it's on the expensive side considering how much you get in the bottle. I have yet to try out gel based polish, maybe i'll give this one a try.

I was tempted by this range last time I was in Boots but the price for such a small bottle put me off. The colour is fantastic though and a good finish and easy application is definitely worth paying a little more for!
