Loreal Summer of Safari: Nail Swatches

Loreal Summer of Safari Collection

Just the other day, I was thinking that it's been a while since I've last seen a Limited Edition Display from Loreal. And, lookie what I stumbled upon.

Loreal's Summer of Safari makeup collection is filled with bronze, golds, and sizzling reds along with four summertastic nail polishes. Yes, four limited editon colors that are perfect for those bronzed beauties.

Summer is my season. And, there's nothing better than gold, bronze and oranges to compliment my olive skin tone. Let's start off by saying, Wow! I'm totally loving all these summer colors from Loreal. Maybe not so much unique, but definitley a step in the right direction.

All my swatches were used with three coats and no true application problems. Since I have small nail bed's, Loreal's flat brush was a dream to apply with.

Before I get to the swatches, the bad news. Some of the nail colors only had one each per display.   

Loreal Tribal Treasure nail polish

Loreal Summer 09 nail colors

Tribal Treasure - was the only color that applied like a metallic polish. Described as a seml sheer light gold that's not quite a traditional metallic nor a shimmer.  

Loreal Desert Dawn nail polish

Loreal Summer 09 makeup collection

Desert Dawn - is a desert tan with gold, bronze and silver shimmer. 

Loreal Exotic Expedition nail polish

Loreal Summer of Safari collection

 Exotic Expedition - reddish orange with red and gold shimmer.

Loreal Safari Sunset nail polish

Loreal Sunset safari nail polish

Safari Sunset - orangey bronze with red, gold and silver shimmer.

The Safari Sunset collection should be hitting stores now and within the weeks to come. The nail polishes retail around $4.19/ea.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
