L’Oreal Paris are bringing out a very impressive range of 5ml mini nail polishes in April based on gel formulas. I’ve had a couple of samples to play with and really like them – especially the brushes which make for very simple application. There is a great deal of technical stuff surrounding the brush, but enough to say here that it delivers the right amount to the nail and I found I got pretty much a perfect application.

The ‘gel’ technology is great; the polishes give a very high shine finish that banishes the need for a topcoat but personally I am such a Seche Vite addict I couldn’t help myself and added a coat. It definitely knocked off some of the shine. With 41 colours, it really is the new nail varnish rainbow with shade inspirations from everywhere – even Marie Antoinette’s boudoir (Shade 202).

Best of all, for polish addicts everywhere, the 5ml pots at £4.99 a pop means that we might actually get to finish a bottle, and hopefully have a selection of shades.
