L'Oreal's Luminous Offering

L'Oreal Sea Violette

Three coats, no top coat.

Can I get an AMEN???? I love this polish so hard. It's a magenta shimmer loaded with blue shimmer. The blue shimmer just glows. It's mesmerizing. 

Here it is over navy blue

The base is a jelly so it's absolutely perfect as a layering polish leaving the blue shimmer to pulsate over your senses. 

While I love it alone most of all, it's nice to see that it's got layering chops. Chops I tell you, chops.

Found at the Dollar Tree ages ago and grateful that we crossed each other's path. 

Good luck finding it online, I haven't found it. I think it might show up in blog sales or eBay on occasion. You need to be assiduous in your search these days though to garner results. 

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I didn't even have to read the text - I took one look at your first picture and *knew exactly* what polish that was!

    Sea Violette was my absolute favorite in high school. I went through two bottles. And I wholly concur with "good luck finding it". I've been searching for years and so far, no luck :(. There are some modern ones that are close, but someday, I'll have the original again.

    Thanks so much for posting the pictures and bringing back the memories!

    1. Hi!
      I it's a gorgeous polish, I consider myself lucky to find it!

      I might goof around with finding a way to recreate it by layering, but it's a breed apart, that's for sure!!
