I am up with a post relating to nail polish after a long time. When the Cannes collection was launched by L’Oreal Paris, I was going mad over their glitter polishes. Especially the copper colored one. I had already seen their swatches online and the other polishes did not catch my fancy as the copper cuff. I checked almost 3 to 4 L’Oreal counters in vain. None were even aware about the launch of such collection. And, finally I got them from Nykaa.com.
Copper cuff is a thickly packed coarse copper colored glitter polish with golden hexagon flecks. Though the base is clear, as the copper glitters are thickly packed, it covers the nail pretty well in a single swipe when compared to normal glitter polishes. In two-three coats the nail is completely covered. I love the color. It looks very pretty and sophisticated on my yellow toned medium-fair complexion.
Price: INR. 235/-
In the bottle:
Drying Time: The polish dries very fast than the traditional glitter polishes. I was amazed. Due to this, the polish in the brush thickens quickly when exposed to air even for a short span of time and it becomes difficult to spread the polish evenly on the nail.
Finish: The finish of the polish is very coarse. If I ruffled my hair with this polish on, my hair gets struck in the hexagonal gold glitter pieces. To reduce the coarseness, I used my rimmel top coat on it.
The brush: I am totally disappointed with the brush. I hate it when my eyeliners/nail polishes come with a faulty brush. The brush is very uneven and how come a limited edition product come with such a brush?
For removal, you need heavy duty removers. I used lakme nail polish remover and I had to almost fight with it to remove the polish off. You can also try the method of wrapping aluminum foil to get it off.
I have used a single coat of this polish on my ring finger and on the rest i have used 3 coats.
Verdict: Though I love the color of this polish, I personally feel that they are over-hyped when it comes to the quality. I will not buy the other shades.
Hope you girls found my review useful.
