L'Oreal, What Is This Nail Polish?

I was flipping through the August issue of Allure Magazine, and admiring the beauty of Freida Pinto in L'Oreal's ad for their The One Sweep Eye Shadow...but I was quickly entranced with her nail polish! What is that? It looks like a deep chocolate, or maybe even black with gold glitter.

Does anyone know if this is a L'Oreal polish shade? Maybe it's layered with a gold glitter? I don't know what it is, but I need it!

  2. Hmm could it be a gold base with a black design? Maybe a cheetah print?

  4. Looks like you could replicate it by sponging gold over a black base. Reminds me of something I've seen on Layniefingers, though you'd need a sponge with smaller holes:

    My two cents anyway :)

  13. Hi, Mary. Love your blog!

    I can't get a close enough view of this ad to suggest I have a dupe, but when I saw it I immediately thought of how to get that look with polishes in my own collection: Essie Little Brown Dress with Nubar 2010 topcoat. The Essie is cooler than this base color, but I think the orange-y tones in the Nubar would warm it up similar to this hue without looking too red.

  14. I tweeted loreal and they said it was their "stroke of midnight" with a gold glitter polish on top. ;)

  15. Aw, thank you for the info, Anon.! I was secretly hoping it was some fabulous new color they'd be releasing, but I guess that's easy enough to dupe :)
