L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium in Sorbet NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 1 - 2011

A NOTD from December, back when my nails were shorter… does anyone else always feel the grass is greener?  Whenever my nails are short… I crave long, finger-elongating talons.  And when they’re long, I feel all witchy-poo and want neat, sweetie-esque nails!

I’m never happy!

L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium* in Sorbet is a very pretty raspberry red with a hint of gold.  The metallic finish promises long-wear of up to 7 days.  I haven’t found it particularly long-lasting from the two nail outings I’ve given it so far.  I get around 3 days from it before tip wear begins to be noticeable enough to ensure a swift removal.

I’m most impressed with the brush though… a slightly-flattened brush which delivers wide, easy strokes.  A definite winner.

L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium in Sorbet is priced at around £6 and available at most L’Oreal stockists including Boots.

    This is a lovely colour, really pretty and really suits your skin colouring.

    I’m exactly the same with my nails, wanting short when I have long and vice versa. But for now I would just settle with having nails. I caved in when my course made my nails weak, and I totally bit them right down. Now a week and 2 days worth of growth and I already feel better. What’s the point of being a qualified nail technician and having rank nails? :( Go me!

    I’ve never seen that line of Loreal polish in the USA. Is it a European collection only? I like the color.

    That colour looks gorgeous on your fingers! I’m really liking that length too… i’m the same with my length, never happy with what i’ve got. Have any of the Loreal resist and shine colours ever bubbled on your nails? I have three, and every one of them bubbles horribly. I tried them with a mixture of all different top & base coats to no avail. They’re stored upright & never shaken with all my other polishes which never have the same problem… eventually i got angry and figured it was just the polish, they got pushed to the back never to be seen again. But seeing you with them all nice and smooth is upsetting, maybe they just hate my nails! =(

    I have one of these- the formula and colour was amazing at first, but after a very short time it went so gloopy! I hope this doesn’t happen to you :/ xxx
