L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Color on clearance (shown, VIP Status and The Queen's Might)

I caught a few bottles of L'Oreal nail color on clearance at the nearest Target. Each bottle was marked down to $1.48 from $4.99. I thought these two were particularly nice on.

VIP Status is striking in the bottle and I think it looks just as good on the nail. The dark metallic greenish/bluish shade is fully opaque in two coats and applies as well as the best colors in the line. I believe that it's part of the regular lineup of colors so I'm wondering why it's on clearance but it could just be my Target.

The Queen's Might is from a limited edition Project Runway collection that also included The Mystic's Future which I recently featured. The color isn't particularly unique; straddling the line between red and pink with a light shimmer. It's also mildly sheer so that while it looks fine with two coats (as shown above), I think it might benefit from one more coat. Although I'm not big on red nail polish, this looks a lot brighter on the nail than in the bottle and it's quite cheery to have on. For $1.48, it's a definite score.

I just acquired these two so I haven't tested them out for wear. However, I expect that they will perform about as well as the other shades from the line. As far as drugstore nail polish goes, L'Oreal is currently my top pick.
