L’Oreal Paris’ first oil-based nail colour (Le Vernis a L’huile) hits the streets in Canada on June 14th and I’m giving you a sneak peak of some of my favourite shades.Loreal paris le veris a lhuile swatches, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile review

Why an Oil-based formula?

10 years of research has produced L’Oreal’s-patented oil-in colour technology. Through this technology, four precious oils (Rose, Lotus Bloom, Camellia Seed and Argan) are infused in the formula for a new level of shine and colour depth.

What is Le Vernis a L’Huile?

A unique palette of 25 creme shades ranging form soft whites and nudes to corals and navy – there’s definitely something for everyone. Each beautiful nail colour is cased in a chic crystalized bottle with L’Oreal’s-patented Flexor brush. The brush features a three-double squared stem and 440 soft bristles. It’s wider at the end with a round shape for precise, perfect and easy application – I’m in love with this brush! Though the majority of shades are launching June 14, there are a few that will be released in November. I’m showing you a sneak peek of 12 shades, but I’ll try to get my hands on the others so that you can compare.

Does it Require a Base or Top Coat?

Definitely not – the shine is incredible and there is no staining from not wearing a top coat. If, however you do want longer wear, than I would recommend a base and top coat.

Let’s have a look at the swatches. All shown on their own with no topcoat.
nude demoiselle, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile(Above: Nude Demoiselle) is a gorgeous soft pink that requires 3 thin coats to reach full opacity.
dimanche apres midi, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile swatches, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile review(Above: Dimanche Apres-Midi) is probably one of my favs in the Le Vernis A L’Huile collection. A soft ballerina pink that also requires 3 thin coats to reach full opacity.

fuchsia palace, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile swatches, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile review(Above: Fuchsia Palace): Who doesn’t always need the perfect fuchsia pink in their collection? Shown here with two coats.
jardin des rose, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile swatches, Loreal paris le veris a lhuile review(Above: Jardin Des Roses) is the first colour I was drawn to as the day I chose to wear it, I had on bright pink lipstick and wanted my makeup to match my nails. Shown here with two coats.

According to celebrity Nail Artist Tom Bachik – a little goes along way with this polish. Apply thin coats and between coats allow a couple of minutes per hand for the polish to dry – this will ensure your nails are 100% dry so that you avoid nicks and unnecessary scuff marks (sheet marks on your nails anyone?).

Le Vernis A L’Huile is available June 14th in mass market retailers and drug stores for $9.99 CAD.

    Thanks for the nice review! 🙂 I never felt that I would like to own any of these colours, first: because my creams by L’Oreal never gave me even coverage, second: because of my strong dislike of the hand grenade look of the bottle. But now, after reading your review I’m quite curious about the formula. Maybe I’ll buy one and pour it into an empty bottle. 🙂 In the photo of Nude Demoiselle I still can see the nail line. Is it possible that this colour is a kind of sheer, and is not supposed to be opaque? Could you get away with less coats if the goal is to reach a natural look?

      Thanks for the comment. I actually really like the bottle and I don’t find it uncomfortable to hold at all. I know what you mean about nude demoiselle and I think you’re right! I hate the way sheer nails look on me but I think if that’s the look you want to achieve, it will be very pretty.

    This is amazing! Just saw all the colours one of the stores in New Zealand and I don’t know which colour I like. When I looked at these post, It helps a lot. Now, I know what colours I love. So pretty!!!!!! Love the glass bottle too. Just attractive. Well designed. Well done. Love, love and love them all.
