Retro Sunday Squared with The Scholarly Nail - Vintage L'Oreals.... & IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!

It's that time again! Retro Sunday Squared! oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! I'm the big 2-8. Ugh, thirty is creeping up on me. 

Jacqui and I picked vintage L'Oreal polishes to share today. It's very fitting since she gifted me a BUNCH recently and it gives me an opportunity to show off two of them! L'Oreal has so many amazing vintage polishes out there, many of their glitter will forever be high on my wish list! Today I have two great ones to share, so let's start things off with Black Emerald. 

Black Emerald is from their Colour Endure line. Holy cow, my lil' green polish lovin' heart is going to burst out of it's chest. WWWOOOWWW! Jacqui's you're my hero. Seriously. My hero. I am so in love with this polish! It's name does it justice, a blackened emerald green shimmer polish. As much as I drool over the outcome, the formula was tricky and difficult. I had to use the right base coat for it to lay even and it was very runny. Pooling aside, it ended beautifully. Two coats.





Next up I have quite the polish to share. When I unwrapped this bad boy I couldn't believe my eyes! There's no name on this polish like a good majority of vintage L'Oreal's - so we're just going to call it by it's number, 405. Oh, 405. Where do I start? Have you ever had and/or seen a blood orange? (If not Google it now, then come right back.) This polish mimics it's color perfectly, a red red jelly that leans to the orange side. What could make that even better? Why add orange micro glitter of course! Two coats of amazing.

  8. Happy birthday!! Both colors are gorgeous. I couldn't recall Jacqui's colors, but for some reason Jet-Set jogged my memory, like I might have had some in the past, and tossed them. Blast!
