I love duochromes, I really can't get enough of them, there's just something special about having a polish on my nails that is more than one colour, it's like magic on my nails.
Since I started collecting polish just over a year ago I've gained a lot of duochromes, there are so many out there that I'm still lusting after by either more expensive or non UK brands, but I don't mind not having them too much because I have some awesome ones that I've got dirt cheap through ebay, pound shops and my local market and are probably alot rarer.
This week I thought I'd show you polishes that I couldn't find any swatches or any mention of, and I hope you'll like what you see.
Today's polish is L'Oreal 026. I didn't know L'Oreal had done any duochromes in the old Jet-Set line, so I was happy to find this, the sellers photos were dreadful, so when it arrived I was waving it at my boyfriend saying "it's a duochrome!", needless to say he wasn't as impressed as me. :-)
Get ready for some photo spam...
Isn't it pretty, it starts off as a pinky copper and changes to orange, and at certain angles you can catch a greenish gold.. This was 2 coats, the formula was a bit thick, and it dried with a satin finish. The only thing I could find fault with was the flared Brush, but this is a problem with a lot of old L'Oreals, and oh my goodness, it sure showed up my ridges (makes mental note to buy ridge filler)!
So that's my first vintage duochrome of the week, I hope you liked it, and I'd love to know if it's been added to your wishlist.
Cheerio for now,
