Swatch: L'Oreal Masked Affair

Hey gang! Happy Friday the 13th! Anyone have any fun plans for Valentine's Day? Our car's in the shop, so we'll probably spend tomorrow taking the bus to the grocery store. :-P

So today I have a polish that you've probably seen a billion times on the Internet by now, but I was in a Rite-Aid the other day and just couldn't help myself. That's right, it's L'Oreal Masked Affair!

This is a silver linear holo with hints of lavender (although the lavender only shows up in certain lights). The holo effect is extremely strong, even indoors! There also seem to be some larger holo particles mixed in, which add texture and visual interest, so it's not just your average silver holo.

L'Oreal Masked Affair. Two coats with Out the Door topcoat.

After reading several reviews of this polish, I prepared myself for a bad formula, but it actually turned out much nicer than I expected. It applied easily and stayed in place on the nail. (Just use thin coats.) Once the polish dried, I did notice a bit of streakiness, which you can sort of see here, but honestly it didn't really bother me. Overall, I found Masked Affair quite glamorous, and a very impressive effort from a drugstore brand!

Are you also lusting after this polish?

  1. I really like the color and want to get my hands on a bottle now.

  2. wow I love this sparkly/metallic silver color!


  3. I keep meaning to see if I can find this, just to say I got it. But I feel like it's another one of those things that I will end up missing out on. It does look gorgeous though!

  4. This looks gorgeous on you!!! Hah, I am not a major holo fan but I've missed out on some great popular polishes so if I see it I'll probably nab it!
