Recently I promised myself I'd stop buying 'drug store' nail polish due to the fact I'm starting to run out of storage space and want to stick purely to OPI and equivalent brands. This lasted as long as my usual spending bans....I wandered into Boots before grabbing the latest hyped up product, L'oreal Confetti Top Coat followed by a Barry M polish!? I usually snub Barry M nail paints due to the brush, formula and performance being disappointing. I also wouldn't normally purchase L'oreal polishes since the bottles are ridiculously small at 5ml, but since this is much more versatile and cheaper than Illamasqua's speckled polishes it's easily justified.
The polish looks great over any shade of polish since the black and white hexagonal pieces are contained in a clear top coat. Though my favourite combination has to be this taupe from Barry M. The formula seems to have improved since my last encounter. The two paired together with my trusty OPI Base Coat lasted a week before tip wear appeared. Warning. Removal of the Confetti Top Coat is a nightmare, I'd hoped it wouldn't be as bad as glitter.....but worth it from the amount of compliments and most wanting it on their nails too.
