L'Oreal The Queen's Ambition - Review & Swatches

This is L'Oreal The Queen's Ambition from the 2012 Project Runway Collection.

I decided recently that I don't wear black nail polish enough.  I love the look of black nails, but I shy away from it because it always looks messy on me.  I can't get the lines straight enough and it really shows with the black.  Perhaps if I would start doing "clean up" after applying it, I would be okay...


I thought a black with silver shimmer would be a great alternative to the creamy black finish.  I went on a search for the Nicki Minaj "Metallic for Life" but I guess I'm a little too late because I can't find it in stores anymore.  I was walking through Target and saw the new L'Oreal Project Runway Display  - and there it was - a black nail polish with silver shimmers.  Of course, I grabbed it because L'Oreal makes some great nail polishes.

I have been wearing this for 24 hours now and I think I'm in love.  I really do enjoy black nails and the silver shimmer gives it a little extra ooommph.  This is a very opaque polish, but it wasn't very shiny on it's own.  It almost had a suede finish.  Because of the finish, it dried really quickly.  I threw my Essie Good to Go on top and it was dry in no time flat.

I'm sure you can find a polish like this in any brand, but I think everyone should own a version of this.  It's very chic.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  4. This looks amazing on you, Essie! You know I love black polish (TOTAL pain to clean up, but worth the effort, always). I'm so excited you got this. I love L'Oréals, too, but I love Butters even more and I think this might be similar to Gobsmacked... I ought to take advantage of the current Ulta sale and snag it, lol. Anyhoo... This looks absolutely beautiful.

  7. I love these amped-up blacks, it looks beautiful on you!!! My two favorite plain black polishes are Camelot from A England for shiny finish and Illmasqua Scorch for satin finish. They both apply ridiculously easy and your nails will appear classy and sophisticated!!!
