Lookie what I found on my computer: photos taken with my old camera several weeks ago!
This is the limited-edition L’Oreal Owl’s Night!
The first thing I noticed when I laid eyes on the bottle was that the gold shimmer caught the light like a supermodel who knows her best camera angles.
I probably would’ve never had this in my possession if it hadn’t been for Carmela’s generosity. She went to the States and brought me back this gorgeous bottle! It was a thoughtful surprise! (You can check out her blog here.)
When I wore this, I was in this phase where I was really feeling dark polishes, so this fit the bill well. Plus the sexy shimmer really made this lacquer special.

L’Oreal Owl’s Night Review
This shade does weird things to my eyes! Sometimes I think it’s an antique olive green with gold shimmer, but then when I look again, I’m pretty sure that the base is brown and the golden shimmer is what’s making the overall colour seem like a murky green.
Whatever colour it actually is, I loved wearing it! You’ll love it if you want to wear a dark polish that’s not straight-up black or even one of those near-blacks. And it dresses up your nails much more with gold, which makes it a bit sultry.
Owl’s Night by L’Oreal is a shimmer polish from what I can tell. I tried to see if the gold particles are shimmer or if they’re super-small flakies, but then my eyes started to hurt. (I don’t have a magnifying glass, and because these photos were taken with my old camera, I can’t zoom in much before the image becomes super blurry.)
Sometimes I think I see slightly larger pieces of gold, but the shimmer is so densely packed that it’s hard to tell if it’s not just two little pieces touching. They seem to have irregular shapes, though…but now my eyes need a break.
Application & Formula
L’Oreal Owl’s Night applied very easily. With the brush, I was able to manipulate exactly where the polish went hassle-free.
I applied 2 medium-thick coats, and that was enough for full coverage.
Final Verdict: 8/10
I love how even though Owl’s Night is dark, the golden particles lighten everything up and really catch the light. This really makes the polish come to life!
