L'Oreal Miss Candy Collection

Prepare to be amazed by a whole bunch of Jelly awesomeness! I've got swatches of the entire L'Oreal Miss Candy Jelly Polish Collection. Take a look...

L'Oreal Bubble Trouble
L'Oreal Bubble Trouble: 1-4 Coats

L'Oreal Bubble Trouble might just be my new favorite light pink polish. The finish on this shade is just incredible. It builds nicely from a super sheer pink to a pretty pastel pink jelly. Bubble Trouble looks to be one of those pinks that will work with any skin tone!

L'Oreal Jolly Lolly
L'Oreal Jolly Lolly: 1-4 Coats

Jolly Lolly by L'Oreal is an interesting polish. On my wheels, it looked pink. On my nails, it looks red. I'm guessing the difference is the fact that the nail wheel is a stark white, whereas my nails have a more pinky/peach base. If you've been looking for a cherry red jelly polish, Jolly Lolly is what you've been searching for! I'm not normally the biggest fan of red polish, but I really like this one!!!

L'Oreal Mango Mamma
L'Oreal Mango Mamma: 1-4 Coats

Mango Mamma from L'Oreal is just that... an INCREDIBLE Mango jelly polish. I'm pretty sure this would match Rita's Mango Italian Ice perfectly! I'm not at all a fan of the color orange, but this is a really pretty shade and finish. Not too sure if it will go with my skin tone... (Just one of many reasons for my general disdain of orange.)

L'Oreal Bananarama Love
L'Oreal Bananarama Love: 1-4 Coats

L'Oreal Bananarama Love might be a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road. I don't own Yellow Brick Road to test it against, but I would say the two are pretty close. Bananarama Love might be a shade or two cooler, but it's still a great color with an awesome finish. How much do you love a yellow that doesn't streak?!?

L'Oreal Creme De Mint
L'Oreal Creme de Mint: 1-4 Coats

I'm guessing L'Oreal went with Creme de Mint for their green jelly because of the mint green trend for Spring. I think they could've gone with a dark green jelly (Nars Zulu, anyone?) to balance out Berry Nice, the only dark jelly polish of the bunch. I'm not sure if I like Creme de Mint or not. I'm not thrilled by it, but it does give some different layering possibilities.

L'Oreal Miss Pixie
L'Oreal Miss Pixie: 1-4 Coats

L'Oreal Miss Pixie is a bright blue jelly, similar to Revlon Royal, which I believe has been discontinued. If you missed out on Royal, this is a must have in your collection. It's a pretty bright blue and you can create some really cool layerings with it!

L'Oreal Lilac Coolers
L'Oreal Lilac Coolers: 1-4 Coats

Similar to Bubble Trouble, Lilac Coolers is another pastel jelly in this collection that's not a crelly and not streaky. This shade is ridiculously pretty and goes on very smoothly. Lilac Coolers would be great for a different take on a French manicure, or used to create a pretty Jelly Glitter Sandwich like this one here.

L'Oreal Berry Nice
L'Oreal Berry Nice: 1-4 Coats

Berry Nice is the lone dark jelly in the Miss Candy Collection. While it seems odd that L'Oreal would throw this in there, Berry Nice isn't all THAT much out of place. It's in the same family of color as Zoya Katherine and Verity Deep Violet, but I don't think it's a dupe for either polish. It's a cool, blue-leaning grape-purple that's just begging to be used in a sparkly layering!

L'Oreal Miss Candy Jelly Polishes

I don't own too many L'Oreal polishes, but the formula on these was excellent. The brush is a bit smaller than the mop-style brush some companies have grown fond of lately. Thankfully, all of my crushes were impeccable without any stray hairs. Application was great... Each polish had a shiny jelly finish at 4 coats. I was actually amazed that for the most part, these polishes weren't streaky AT ALL. Even with just one coat, they seemed to level out not just on my wheels, but on my nails as well.

The price point on these polishes isn't bad... $5.99 retail at CVS or Rite-Aid, and that's before all the coupons and rewards both stores offer. This collection IS Limited Edition, so if you're interested in any of these polishes, don't wait! Jelly collections usually don't stick around too long. I still regret not picking up all of OPI's "Sorbet" polishes from the Texas Collection.

What do you think of the L'Oreal Miss Candy Jellies?!?
