NOTD: L'Oreal High Tide #604 +

I've had this L'Oreal polish for quite awhile and ever since Nouveau Cheap featured it, I've been wanting to try it. However, you know how it goes, new pretty polishes arrive and the polish you've been wanting to try mysteriously never gets worn. But here it is!

Like many other bloggers, I found the formula on these a bit difficult to work with. It's quite thick but does seem to settle eventually on the nail. I also got a few bubbles which is why I eventually layered something else on top. Any guesses? It's super easy.
High Tide by itself. I believe the 2nd picture is the most accurate. It's a very subtle blueish gray or grayish blue? There is a very very subtle silver shimmer that's nearly undetectable so from far away it pretty much is a cream.
But of course everything is better with some Hidden Treasure on top!
I really like Hidden Treasure on top of pastels or lighter colors like this. It's subtle but it makes your nails sparkle and kind of looks like glass was layered on top of your polish (and a plus it also hides the bubbling).

Have you tried one of these LE L'Oreal polishes? You may be still able to get them. My CVS still has the displays up and stock sometimes gets replaced.

I really like this shade I sort of wished I would of picked it up but didn't because like you said I heard the formula was awful :/ I did get the Ocean Breeze though and I liked it, the formula wasn't bad on that one. I really need to layer hidden treasure over a lighter polish, it looks so mermaidy and watery, I love it! I've only layered it over darks so far xo

Ooooh! Ahhhh! So pretty! I never thought to layer HT over this one. You're a genius! I'm sorry you had a similar experience w/ the formula. Darn you, L'Oreal! Why do you have to make your prettiest shades so hard to work with?

Thanks for the shout-out, btw! :D xo
