On My Nails This Week: MUA's Frozen Yogurt with L'Oreal's Confetti Topcoat

In keeping with the promise that I made to myself to tackle some of the beauty products lurking in my stash I added L'Oreal Paris' Confetti Top Coat to my nail polish choice for the week, Make Up Academy's Frozen Yoghurt. After last week's dalliance with an Essie nail polish (link) I am really feeling the low quality of this polish formula. MUA nail polishes are (I think) a bargain at just £1 but the brushes are thin and the polish is thin too, meaning I had to use three coats before it became opaque and even. Also, the final finish isn't very shiny which didn't affect me as I knew I was going to add a top coat but it is worth bearing in mind if you love shiny nails. 

I personally love the shade of MUA's Frozen Yogurt, it is a mid-purple so it isn't too pastel-y for mid-summer but it is still oh so pretty (purple is my favourite colour so it isn't hard to woo me). The L'Oreal Paris Confetti Top Coat isn't exactly a dream to use (the brush has gone cray-cray, like, bristles all over the place) and I personally find it a little bit thick. I like one coat of it for a subtle speckle but I prefer two to three coats for a more in your face effect, I find it gets noticed more often and I get more compliments. Vanity drives this nail choice. Anyway, together I find it to be a very pretty combination and I'll definitely be wearing these two together again!

Do you like these two polishes together? What have you been wearing on your nails this week?



  1. Lovely shade! I agree about them being a bargain but I hate the brush and formula x

  2. these are a really great combination. it's funny because as a canadian I can't order mua polish but I always think it would be good probably because the bottles look like essie! but it sounds like i'm not really missing out, even though I love purple and that's a great shade. this combo is fantastic but i won't be picking up either of the polishes!

    I have way too many lurkers in my stash!

  3. Very cute look, really like the the topcoat!!

  4. a good way too get the speckles out is use a sponge put the nail varnish on the sponge as much as you like and it soaks up the magority of the varnish, then you can just dab on the speckles without a huge varnish build up! It looks lovely!
