L'Oreal Platinum Chic – Review, Swatches + GIVEAWAY

The first in my Giveaway week is my review of L’Oreal’s Platinum Chic from their Color Riche line. I’ve tried a few of the confetti topcoats from L’Oreal but no glitters or colours, so I was excited to give this a try.


This is quite an interesting polish, made up of a fine yellowy silver microglitter as the base, silver medium sized pieces of glitter, and the larger pieces are also silver but they have a slightly lilac cool hue you can see in the bottle picture above. I don’t think of Platinum Chic as a real ‘platinum’ colour, platinum is a very cool toned white metal, and the yellowy base warms this polish up completely.


Disappointedly the lilac hue that can be seen on the larger pieces in the bottle doesn’t quite translate to the nail, but super glittery effect does translate. Pictured here with 2 coats, it’s not quite picked up with

For a glitter polish this has barely any texture at all, It chips quite quickly, but I’ve found wearing a topcoat does help improve the wear time moderately, it also glides over the very little amount of texture this polish does have, but it’s evened out with the topcoat.


I’d recommend this polish, because it chips quickly it’s not a total horror to remove, as you can peel and chip if off without having to get a nail polish remover involved. But again, I don’t know that I would turn to this polish as one to rely on for day to day, but wearing for a special occasion or matching a particular outfit.
