New Spring Nail Polishes From L'Oreal and Maybelline

A few bright and shiny spring items caught my eye while shopping in my local Fred Meyer. I was looking for a yellow polish that would be wearable for me, some orange, and I was totally bummed out that I hadn't seen China Glaze 108 degrees anywhere in my town. I turned the corner of the cosmetic aisle and WA LAH! There on the end cap where some new bright and shiny spring offerings from L'Oreal and Maybelline. Check it out!



The item on the left is Maybelline Express Finish in Orange Blazes #654. It's a really nice orange cream for summer. It is limited edition. It is shown in two coats on my pinky finger.



In the first picture, the orange L'Oreal Nail Polish is the color Coral Starfish #422. It is an orange with silver and orange sparkles. It is shown in two coats on my index finger.

The bottle third from the left in the first picture is L'oreal Yellow Seahorse #322. It is a yellow with pink and yellow shimmers. They don't really show when wearing it but give it that little bit of oomph to keep it from looking flat. It is pictured in THREE coats on my middle finger. Here's more of a closeup of the bottle to show the shimmers. It's really pretty.



Lastly, on my ring finger is L'Oreal #222 Pink Shells. It is a vivid deep pink with magenta flecks. It is very similar to China Glaze 108 degrees, perhaps just a bit brighter.


All four polishes applied like a dream, with no streaking. The L'Oreal are a steal at $4.99 and the Maybelline is priced at $7.99. Get them while you can. I don't think they'll last long on the displays.

  1. I never thought I would like the look of yellow nail polish but I think after seeing Chanel Mimosa I've changed my mind.

  2. Agh, I just bought Yellow Seahorse today thinking I should send it to you to compare to Mimosa! I actually managed to get pretty close by layering Seahorse over a white shimmery polish. Could you try layering Seahorse over Lemon Fizz to see if it's a Mimosa dupe?

  3. Katie, I can do that...in ten days. I left yesterday for a trip out of state, but I bet that would be a very close dupe, only much more manageable than Mimosa....better coverage and easier application. For myself, I prefer the color of Seahorse to Mimosa.
