Hi, today I've got a wonderful vintage polish for you, it's a lovely old L'Oreal LaquiResist called Rome.
I adore old polishes like this, I wish I could find out when it was made and what collection it came from but I think I'd have to do alot of digging online to find out, I shall just have to be satisfied that it's in my stash as it is rather lovely.
Rome (or number 193) is a funny orange, it's a bit of a colour shifter depending on the light, in the sun it's a bright orange but it's a more subdued dusty orange in the shade. It's a shimmer that it on the edge of being frosty, but whatever it is, it's pretty swoon worthy.
This had an amazing formula for an old polish, I could've almost got away with just doing one coat, but I did two as there was a tiny hint of vnl which I wanted to cover up. It dried nice and quick too. I wish L'Oreal still made polish like this, I like some of their newer stuff but I really hate the tiny bottles and high price tag so I don't buy any unless I find them cheap.
I do wonder when they stopped using this bottle shape, I really like it, although most of my bottles caps don't sit square with the bottle which really bugs me, but hey ho, I'd rather have a vintage polish with a wonky cap than none at all. :-)
What do you think of Rome, and do you have a favorite vintage L'Oreal?
Cheerio for now,
