L’oreal Resist & Shine Tropical Collection Nail Polish 2011 is Fruity!

My favourite kind of nail colour is bold and bright, because it seems to suit my olive skintone whereas pale shades disappear and overly dark ones are a bit harsh.

L’oreal’s Tropical collection is just up my street! 5 new shades of bright purple, pink and orange reds! There is:

430 Wonderful Watermelon, 151 Dapper Dragon Fruit, 451 Popping Pomegranate, 125 Perfect Passion Fruit and 651 Feisty Fig.


I was sent 2 of the shades to try – 451 Popping Pomegranate which is a bright orange red and 151 Dapper Dragon Fruit which is a hot fuchsia colour with a purply edge.

I’ve never considered using L’oreal polish before…But these ones are really nice to use. A good texture and long lasting (it is supposed to last 7 days and it has done for me, although I have been off work so the lady has not been doing much!).

Also the formula is free from formaldehyde and toluene.

Popping Pomegranate:


Really like this shade, it’s bright with a lovely orange tone.

Dapper Dragon Fruit:


I think this is lovely too a bit more wearable for every day (sort of!).

The only thing that I don’t like as much about this is the packaging. The lid is slightly curved and wide, so it can be a bit tricky to hold. Otherwise I’d definitely check out L’oreal in the future for polishes!

These polishes cost £6.12 each and you can buy it from Boots, Superdrug etc.

    The only problem that I’ve found with the L’oreal Resist and Shine polishes is that I get little bubbles under the polish, no matter how carefully I apply, and this has put me off buying more shades. Formula-wise, I find it so-so, but the little bubbles really annoy me…I like a smooooth finish lol
