Versailles Romance Collection: Part 1

Today I have for you 3 of the 6 polishes from L'Oreal's Versailles Romance Collection. This was a spring collection for L'Oreal and I was lucky to find all 6 on sale at Target recently. I'd coveted this collection but didn't go for it until they were on sale. Hopefully if you like this collection you can still find them. 


This collection consists of 6 pastel shades, 4 cremes and 2 cremes with golden shimmer in them.




Up first is Creme Puffs. This a pale yellow filled with a golden shimmer. The shimmer is not very visible in my photos, which is sad, but trust me it's there. You are looking at 3 thin coats here. This polish applies easily and was great to wear. 




Next up we have Lacey Lilac. This is a beautiful mid-toned pale purple creme polish. Here I'm wearing 2 thin coats. 




Finally we have Royally Yours. This is a pale light blue creme. Here I'm wearing 3 thin coats. 

Overall, I really like the colors from this collection. It really filled a gap in my polish collection as I really tend to spring for bright bold colors and didn't have many of the pastel spring colors. My favorite part of L'Oreal polishes though is their brushes. They have the best brushes, perfectly tapered to create a perfect streak of polish on the nail. 

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the second half of the collection. 

Enjoy & until tomorrow, Amy Lee

  1. I really like these colours, I was looking at them last week, but often L'Oreal has sheer polish when it comes to pastels so I passed. Now I wished I didn't! I love that Yellow, it looks similar to Maybelline Canary Cool. A colour which I have had my eyes open for.

    Thank you very much for these swatches and reviews!

    1. I'm so glad you like them. I know L'Oreal has several jelly polishes in their collection, I wonder if maybe you picked up one of those. Their cremes do not disappoint, they are great.

    2. No I meant their regular polish, as I have about 10 and only two ware meant to be sheer.

      Maybe I just have bad luck with them, or it could just be the batches in Canada suck, if they are any different from US?

    3. That's so weird! I only have these, and a jelly. I had no idea that some of the regular line were so sheer.

  2. I've had the same issues as @bluberry pie in the sheerness of polishes when it comes to L'Oreal, but your swatches makes it seem pretty opaque, maybe i should try them out..i do love the colors!

    1. Like I told Blueberry, they have lots of jelly polishes in their collection, so it's easy to grab one of those and then be all "what the heck"

      I'm glad you like the colors. :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Royally Yours is my favorite here. All of these are so pretty! I love delicate Spring colors but I have to admit that I am so looking forward to the Fall collections already.

    1. I'm totally in love with the summer neons right now. Pastels are great, but I love the punchy in your face colors out right now.

  4. I am usually not a yellow fan, or pastel fan for that matter, but this whole collection is really pretty especially the yellow!

    1. I'm on a never ending search for the perfect pale yellow. I've found a few I like, but it is never quite what I had in mind.
