L’Oreal Too Dimensional Swatch & Review NOTD!

L'Oreal Too Dimensional

L’Oreal Too Dimensional

When I found these polishes I had no idea they were from a limited textured polish line! There was no signage at the display, no markings on the bottle to tell me as much. I was drawn in as the store I was at had all L’Oreal polishes on sale for about 50% off, maybe I was blinded by that! I grabbed this one, L’Oreal Too Dimensional, and another, L’Oreal Rough Around The Edges which will be watched and reviewed another day, on the merit of looking cool and interesting in the bottles alone. As luck would have it I got something far more interesing than I anticipated!

L’Oreal Too Dimensional 136, I discovered, is from their Colour Riche Gold Dust 3D Texture nail colour line. This is my first of any of these types although they have been around for a while. Too Dimensional is a medium denim like blue base full – ย really loaded – with gold micro glitter and medium hexagonal glitter. It dries quickly to a slightly rough to touch (but not enough to, say, snag your pantyhose) somewhat matte yet glittery finish. I don’t have anything like this and liked the effect right away! You aren’t supposed to use a top coat with these so that you get the full intended effect, but I’m sure it would look just as nice shiny! I couldn’t bring myself to add a top coat for pictures today, I was really enjoying the matte, roughish edgy texture too much. Perhaps I will make them shiny for a future NOTD.

This shade needs 2 coats for it’s full effect, however if you are having some kind of “I need sparkly blue nails absolutely RIGHT NOW!” emergency, you can get away with one coat and be out the door in seconds as it does seem to dry very quickly. This could just be the rough texture fooling me though! Here it is at one coat, looking a little more lavender.

And here it is with two coats in the sun. It looks a bit brighter blue in the photos, in person it is a slightly more muted greyer blue.

          I just looked that up as I had never heard of the shade! And wow, gorgeous, a violet with blue shimmer duochrome! It immediately reminded me one I have, Rimmel Violet Metal, which I would say is slightly deeper purple with somewhat more subtle blue shimmer. I sense a NOTD post coming up now thanks for the inspiration!
