L'oreal Colour Riche Gold Dust Textures

I love it when color is spelled colour. Even though my American computer just tried to correct that to 'color'. Seems much more classy to me when there is a 'u' in there. I don't know, I guess I just like to spice things up sometimes.

I had seen a spoiler for these polishes on someone's IG awhile ago. When his name comes to me it will get posted here. 

I scooped up 3 of L'oreal's new Colour Riche Gold Dust Textured polishes. In the bottle, these looked very similar to the Julie G Gumdrops, which are my favorite textured polishes. I was happy to add some new textured shades to my collection.

First up is Sexy in Sequins. 
This was a really deep purple. It had gold shimmer in there that was pretty dynamic, flashing to shades of pinks. There were also larger purple bits, which is what reminded me of the Julie G Gumdrop collections.

I liked this one but I felt it was a little too dark for me. I think it almost ended up appearing black.
However, I loved the textured feel. It was similar to Julie G as in it was a light sandy texture, without being too gritty or annoying. It also dried quickly and retained much of its sparkle and shine!

Next up is Pop the Bubbles.

This is more teal in person. I missed out on the teal Julie G, so I just had to snag this one!
I loved it! It is a nice light teal shade, with silver shimmer and teal bits that give it a more multi-dimensional feel.

Like Sexy in Sequins, this went on smooth and dried to a nice sandy smooth textured finish.

Since the first dark purple I chose was a dud for me, I was glad to have picked up this gorgeous purple.
Meet Reign of Studs.

This is an awesome purple. It wasn't too dark but wasn't too light either. It was perfect. 

Reign over me has a silver shimmer with lilac purple bits. 
This one also dried in a reasonably amount of time with the same sandy finished as the rest.

I didn't try these with top coat, as I expect I would need 18 coats (kidding, but no, really) to get it to smooth out.

Overall, I loved this collection. If you missed out on the Julie G Gumdrops and have had a lemming for them, I suggest you check out these!
I found mine at CVS, but I have seen them turning up in other drugstores too!

Sad you missed out on the Julie Gs? What do you think of this collection?

Talk to you soon!


  1. I have both these purples, but haven't worn them yet...I found Too Dimensional missing from at least two displays....hope I can get it too!! So pretty in your pix!!

  2. I picked up four of these - Reign of Studs, Sexy in Sequins, Diamond in the Rough and I Like It Chunky. I actually thought Sexy in Sequins was a black one until I put it on a nail wheel.
