L'Oreal: Breaking Curfew - Swatch and Review

Well hey there y'all,

Today I have on another vampy polish that has been sitting in my "untried" bin for forever! Way longer than Oktoberfest--in fact, I bought this polish so long ago I don't even remember how long I've had it. I bought it thinking it would be nice to try something I don't usually wear, and then I never wore it! >.<

Breaking Curfew

Damn I wish I'd worn this sooner. This is definitely a new go-to polish for me!

Breaking Curfew is a dark (near black) reddish-plum jelly. Opaque in two coats with no VNL. It's a jelly, but it's suuuuuuuuper dark and pigmented! I'm really starting to like dark vampies like this. I've always felt like they were a little boring, being so close to black, but my tastes are changing. This shade just looks so classy to me. Like it would be great for a late night formal event.

The Good:

  • Formula was excellent. Thin and smooth, and very dense and opaque. One coat was almost enough!
  • Beautiful color.
  • Drugstore polish! I love having great drugstore polish around. It usually means I can go back for more bottles of the stuff when I run out, and it usually doesn't cost too much.
The Less Good But Not That Bad:
  • It was almost a little too thin. Even though the thin-ness did nothing bad for the opacity, it did pool onto the sides of my nails just a bit. Especially on my index finger.
Overall, this is a great polish. It's an excellent basic vampy that is very wearable next to my skin tone. I really think everyone should have a polish like this!
