L’Oreal Punchy Lychee and Rimmel BritPop

I Bought This|Press Sample

This bright dotticure was inspired by the little girls who live on my street. A couple of them like to pop by when the boyfriend and I are dining on our deck and they’ve become fascinated with my nail polish room and constantly changing manicures. In fact, one held her arms out wide and declared, “Your obsession is this big,” when looking into my office. She’s totally right, ha!

Anyway, last night they came over and I invited them in to see all the Helmer drawers of color, swatch wheels and random nonsense in my room. And together, they decided that my nails needed polka dots in these two colors so I went with it. The 4-year-old who LOVES pink, as most little girls do, was adamant that this new L’Oreal Colour Riche shade go on my nails.

I used the L’Oreal Neons shade, Punchy Lychee, with Rimmel LONDON Salon Pro shade, BritPop, for the dots. And even though Punchy Lychee is more orange-coral than pink-coral, as the bottle color inferred, I love this combo and may need to consult with them from now on. I mean, I have the same taste in music as the 10-year-old, so, why not?

What’s on your nails today? Have you tried the L’Oreal Neons or new Rimmel Salon Pro formula?

    That L’Oreal polish is gorgeous! The blue dots you added really pop off of it too.

    OMG, too cute, the nails and the girls. You must be the best neighbor ever for little girls! And I must say, you should consult with them. They did a good job:)

    What did you use to make the polka dots? I’ve been wanting to try doing them, but no idea how to do it.

    • Hi Jessica! I used a couple dotting tools I bought on Amazon. I used the larger one first and filled in with the smaller tool. Just dump some polish on a non-porous surface, like aluminum foil or a plastic artist’s palette, and dip the tool into the polish and place on the nail. It takes some practice to get the dots even, I even have trouble with that, but it will come. Just make sure you wipe off the tool between nails so the polish doesn’t build up and get goopy. Also, work fast, as air exposure will thicken the polish.

    Oh, I love this! And, I love that you let the little girls pick out the colors! They made a great choice! So cute! The colors are great together!

  5. Wow insane color saturation! I love this :) Well done cutie neighbor girls!

    that is so pretty. how did you get the dots so perfect? did you use a special tool?

    • Hi Eydie! I use a dotting tool. I picked up a set with various sizes on Amazon. Make sure you clean off your tool between nails so it doesn’t get thick with polish. Also, work fast so the polish doesn’t thicken from air exposure. I use a piece of aluminum foil to pour it on. It doesn’t absorb the polish so it stays liquid longer.

    This combination is insanely beautiful – I would never come up with it alone. Bless those girls, you must consult with them more often.

    I am doing this tomorrow….please thank your neighbors for inspiring my birthday manicure this year!

  9. Rebecca says:

    At least they have a nice eye for colors! My kids… tend to be not as matching!

  10. Leissa says:

    Love it! I’m sure your polish room is a little girls heaven (it certainly is mine, haha!). And yes, we may need a monthly mani from them! Choosing which colors to use is always the hardest part ;)

  11. kel says:

    forget the polish what a great story:)

  12. The different size dots add so much more interest and I love that this would work great on shorter nails – May have been tempted into biting mine recently … Oops

    I love how the dots have an outline… really makes them stand out. Did you do anything special to get that effect?
