M is for: Magic Croisette from L’Oréal (with Saphir Treasure stamped butterflies)
I’m jumping in on a new challenge. Only in my last post was I complaining about my lack of inspiration and lack of posting – so it’s come at exactly the right time.
Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes is running the challenge, which is a series of A to Z posts. I’m joining in right in the middle, at M, but will see it through to the end. Who knows, I may just then start at A and do the front half of the alphabet too!
So, for M, I have Magic Croisette from L’Oréal. The Boulevard de la Croisette is a famous seaside promenade in Cannes, and the name so I guess the polish is named after the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean as seen from a leisurely stroll along the esplanade of the same name.
I bought this in March 2013 and haven’t worn it until now. It’s a duochrome in mid blue and teal, with a light blue, almost turquoise shimmer. The duochrome doesn’t show up much on the naills, but the polish is lovely all the same. It took two easy coats, and then I added some simple stamping.
I thought I’d keep the stamping in the L’Oréal family and tried out Saphir Treasure, a metallic light blue. It’s very similar – in the bottle anyway – to Essie Blue Rhapsody from the Mirror Metallics collection.
I stamped using the butterfly image on Bundle Monster plate BM 307.

Such a pretty blue (WANT) – I love the delicate butterfly stamping too.
I think I bought it full price, but it’s available for £1.30 on Fragrance Direct – it’s number 811 (and the stamping polish is number 817).
Oooo thanks for the tip (you enabler you!)
Only too happy to help 😉
