My Favorite L’Oreal ~ Polish of the Month

Posted on: August 11, 2013

Grey-t Expectations by L’Oreal. This the purple/gray/beige polish I love so much; I must have a half dozen of nail polish this exact same color. I like the L’Oreal because I like their formula a lot and I like their brushes as well. Application is a breeze, no fuss here with this L’Oreal polish or any other one I’ve tried. The brush picks up just the right amount of polish, it’s smooth, easy to work with and I’ve had fairly good wear time with these polishes. You all know I change my polish often so I’m not really one to speak to wear; although I have been changing my polish daily, less and less.

Grey-t Expectations was released by L’Oreal in the Spring of 2012. I’ve seen some reports of it being the Spring of 2013 but I know I’ve had this polish long enough to know it was a 2012 release. I get great coverage with 1 coat but I always do 2 and I used a quick dry top coat. I like how my nails look with this color, must be why I buy it over and over. Here are a few


Yes, I painted each nail with a different brand, but the same color. The L’Oreal version Grey-t Expectations is just a tad lighter and seems to be a bit more gray. I still love this color and will continue to wear it whenever possible. I probably should put all my Commander in Chic dupes in a box to grab in case my house catches fire. But that would be silly because I can purchase all these easily at any drug store. L’Oreal nail polish sells for around $5.99 in my area. I try to always buy it at Walgreens because the cosmetic counter girls always have a L’Oreal coupon, and I love that about my Walgreen’s. but if you don’t have access to a drug store L’Oreal nail polishes are on eBay as well as Amazon.com.
L’Oreal finished as the number 5 brand when I Concluded my Nail Polish Comparison Study by Brand. Not a bad showing considering I compared well over 40 polishes for this “study”.

⚡This is something new I am going to try for a while and I hope to make this a regular feature on my blog. I would also like my readers to send me their photos of Things that Match My Nail Polish. So here goes with the first ever, Things that match my Nail polish. If you have a picture you want to share, please send it to me and I will post it for you. My email address is Judi.Tierney@yahoo.com. I think this might be fun. What do you guys think?

What a lovely colour! I also tend to buy similar shades that I find flattering on me.

Even though I own Merino Cool and Mischievous I still look at C in C and want to buy it!I love the photos you are showing by James Richman and your new “Things that match my nails ” is fun!Linda xo


It is no wonder that so many brands have this great color in their collections. It is my “fall back” color. I have it in an Orly polish.


I think it’s one of those colors that look good with all skin types and on all nail shapes. I know it look good on my short nails and also when they are longer, Thanks for the comment, Judi

Betty’s Blog

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
