Nail of the Day: L'Oreal Brit Invasion

Today's NOTD is another color from the new L'Oreal London Fall nail collection.  Today's shade, Brit Invasion, is a cool medium brown with gold shimmer to it.  The first time I saw this collection display in store, this shade was sold out, and I can see why!  In the bottle, this shade is absolutely stunning.

natural light, 2 coats

Unfortunately, Brit Invasion doesn't translate onto the nails with as much oomph as I would like.  The formulation is great, the color is good, but on the nails it just falls flat for me.  Even with a super glossy top coat, it still didn't do anything special for me.  It's too bad, because this thing really is a stunner in the bottle, and a great price!

The L'Oreal London Fall nail collection is available for a limited time in drugstores.  These polishes retail for roughly $6 each, but it isn't too hard to catch a sale on L'Oreal products if you look around.  Be sure to check out another NOTD of another shade from this collection (which I LOVE), The Perfect Trench.

Have you tried any disappointing nail polishes lately?
