L’Oreal Nail Polish ~ Stroke of Midnight Swatches

Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing great. I Got a gray nail polish from L’Oreal, Stroke of Midnight and I really like it. Gray has been quiet a trend presently. I didn’t have a gray color polish in my collection and now I have it. Stroke of Midnight is a deep gray with full of micro shimmers and I feel its the best gray nail polish. It looks really nice on my warmer skin tone. I felt good by taking a break from all bright summer colors and painted my nails with this pretty polish. It had been a while since I painted my nails with a dark polish. Sometimes I wear black polish and love my vampy nails but it looks  harsh. On the other hand this subtle dark grey looks charming on nails.

  • Pigmentation: Stroke of Midnight is a moderately pigmented polish. It goes a bit sheer on first L'Oreal Nail Polish ~ Stroke of Midnightlayer and two layers doesn’t make it opaque. So you need to apply three coats of it to get the actual color.
  • Formula: I’m not impressed by the formula of this polish. It dries very quickly and doesn’t give enough time to work on nails. It’s kind of hard to smooth out the polish as it dries instantly. So one must act fast to make it work.
  • Finish: With three layers of this gray polish, it creates a nice glossy shine on nails. Looking close to the bottle it appears to have lot of micro shimmers and it adds a nice effect to your nails.
  • Staying power: As far as staying power of this polish is concerned, it is disappointing. It chipped on the third day even though I had base coat on my nails. That’s all about the longevity of Stroke of Midnight!
  • Where to buy: Loreal polishes are available in most of the drug stores and retail stores in US. buy cheap nail polish online You can get it in CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Walmart and Target

I spotted this polish in Rite Aid and checked it in Amazon later and bought it with a cheap deal. This is my favorite way to buy cheap nail polish online. It retail stores, It costs about $5.99 but I bought is for $3. You can check eBay for cheap deals too.

  1. Hey there Demi! 🙂

    I haven’t been to your site in a while… You have been a busy busy girl.
    I love a good,dark nail polish. Dark polishes tend to have an non shiny finish and this one does not so that’s cool. I like the shimmer effect it has.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Mary for your feedback. 🙂

  2. For a nail polish brand that you can get just about anywhere, I do like the Loreal brand, and I especially love this color in the fall. I do agree that the staying power isn’t the greatest, but I personally like the fact that it dries quickly; easier to put on additinal coats

    1. Nice to know your point of view Debra. As you mentioned quick-dry thing may be selling point for some.

  3. Very nice site with good content and great pictures. I have never had my nails done…maybe I will someday:)

    1. Thanks Michael.

  5. Hi Demi, I do not know if chipping on the third day is common or not, would this not discourage people? Maybe a comparison with other polish should be made? Cheers, Jerry

    1. Hi Jerry, as I have mentioned in the article, chipping on third day is a disappointing to me. One can buy this polish if she likes the color, othterwise the formula and the staying power is not upto the standard. I have written review for other polishes and most of them stay at least for a week.
