Today, Makeup Kitty found herself in the mood for pink! Of course, that happens quite often. My nails were ready to go clubbing with a fuchsia L’Oreal Colour Riche nail polish shade called Members Only, from the Trend Setter mood family. You may recall how much I loved L’Oreal Colour Riche nail polish in Not A Cloud In Sight (111) and raved about L’Oreal Colour Riche nail polish in Royalty Reinvented (107). I expected to love Members Only just as much! Unfortunately, that’s not what happened…
I was off to a rocky start when I saw that my brush had one of the fibers longer than the rest. That wasn’t too big of a deal, so I trimmed it off and kept on going. Well, two coats later I could still see through the nail polish! There was also something dark and murky coming through the pleasant pink color, ruining the effect.
Unfazed, I thought the third coat would surely fix it up. Wrong! After three coats, the polish was still not opaque. That strange dark shadowing also didn’t go away. You can probably notice it in the pictures!
All in all, I was very disappointed, since I was clearly poised to love this retro pink varnish, based on the quality of other polishes from the same collection! Alas, it was not to be…
I’m planning to give this polish another try, over a base coat of opaque white. I’ll update this post to let you know what happens!
If you had a better experience with Members Only – please let me know! I’m very curious to find out whether this is a common issue, or just a bad batch.
