L'Oreal Color Riche Les Blancs Peach Neglige & Pistachio Drage

You know me, it takes a special kind of neutral polish to get me excited, but the Les Blancs collection from L'Oreal is very special indeed.  Four shades make up the collection, each one a lighter than light pastel, giving a more modern take on the traditional spring time pastel polish.  I've two to show you today and having seen swatches of the others, these are definitely my picks and my favourites!

Feast your eyeballs on them.  Don't you feel all sophisticated just looking at them?  I've tried white polishes in the past and every single time will come away looking like I've Tipp-Exed my nails.  These guys give a softer white finish to the nails, with a hue of pastel, meaning I don't look like I've been in the stationary cupboard at work getting busy.

I found that like most pastel polishes, these needed three coats until I was fully happy with the finish. I could have gotten away with two coats if I wasn't doing photos for the blog.  They both dried to a glossy finish and in the photos below, I haven't used a topcoat so you could see the proper shine.

Peach Neglige is soft, delicate and one of my favourite shades of polish of the year so far.  In real life it's slightly warmer looking on the nails and I bet you a million squid it's going to look gorgeous with a tan, fake of course!  This is one of those work friendly, weekend friendly polishes and I'm going to get a lot of wear out of it.  Fact.

Pistachio Drage was an absolute surprise to me because I don't wear green polishes that much as I associate them with St Patrick's Day.  This, however, has changed all that and it looks fresh, clean and minty on my nails.  I do realise I've made it sound like a toothpaste with my description but look at it.  Doesn't it make you want to have the windows open and eat an ice cream?  No?  Just me?  Ok!

These were a very welcome addition to my insanely vast nail polish stash and it's safe to say I've nothing like them at all.  They'll set you back €7.49 and honestly, I can't pick which one I love more. When I think I have, I look at the other one and feel guilty, so like twins, fraternal twins, I love them both so much.

Which is your favourite?
