NOTD:L’Oreal Smell the Roses

Posted on: August 7, 2012

20120807-115001.jpg This is Smell the Roses from L’Oreal . As most of you know, I have been working all summer on a comparison by brand chart. I realized I did not have any L’Oreal to use in this ‘study’. I should say I didn’t have any current L’Oreal. I did have one L’Oreal polish I found in my Mom’s medicine cabinet, lord only knows how old that one is! The next trip to Shopko I specifically looked for L’Oreal polish and discovered they were on sale and a couple of new collections were on display, plus I had a $10 off coupon for Shopko, win, win. 🐔

From left to right, Eiffel for you, great expectations, smell the roses, Brit invasion, silver sparkle and gorgeous gold. The Brit invasion is a limited edition from their London Fall collection 2012. The silver sparkle and gorgeous gold are from their It’s Gold or Nothing At All collection released for Summer 2012.

20120807-120043.jpg. This is the Brit invasion. It is a brownish-purple-ish with a ton of gold shimmer running through it. I think this will be one of my favorites come this fall.

20120807-120229.jpg. This is gorgeous gold. You all know I’m not a big fan of glitter polish, but this one is more of a gold polish with pieces of gold glitter, hard to describe. Here is a picture of it on the nail wheel, along with the others.

I really like this polish. I like Smell the Roses on my shorter nails, and it has a thin application which I like. I don’t like when I do 2 coats, plus a top coat and you wind up with a puffy looking fingernail? Does anyone know what I’m talking about? Anyone? Bueller?
Anyway, 😄thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great day, I plan on it!

Very pretty polish. I really love rose colour polishes. Funny, I have 1 L’oreal polish (french tip creme) I found when going through my old polishes. This is really old and almost threw it out with a bunch of others but opened it and its fine.


Omg, Diane don’t ever throw out your old polishes. There was a girl on twitter just the other day and she had about 15 bottles that were old and almost empty, she mixed them together and came up with the most beautiful shade of cherry/rose/pink you ever saw. Shed shown a pic of what she was throwing out and someone told her to mix them together first, it was gorgeous! I’m going to do that someday, if my bottles ever get that low!
Also, I just noticed this color is a lot like the China Glaze one I had in Sunday! I must be in a rosy mood! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Love to you the hairy armed guy you sleep with. Xoxo


Thanks for the Gold,Silver and Bronze Medal polishes Judi.If there was a gold medal for nail polish lovers you would get it!


Thanks Linda, that made my day! 🙂

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
