L'Oreal Not a Cloud in Sight

I am really sensitive to the weather. The past week or so we've been having on and off dreary and gloomy days here, and it really messes with my mood. I need the sun! The gloomy skies depress me and just make me feel off? Thankfully, this morning the sun was shining. This was a bad segue into this nail polish. Yes, so I spotted this new L'Oreal polish called Not a Cloud in Sight in the TRENDsetter collection. I liked the name of the color because cloudless days and sunny skies have been what I've been craving! No clouds= sun, assuming it's day time, which means I will be happy because it's not cloudy. This sounded so much better in my head!

Not a Cloud in Sight


Not a Cloud in Sight is what I'd call as a bright (not neon) aquamarine creme.

If you all were to ask what my favorite color is, it would be this one. This is not necessarily my favorite nail polish color, but in general I just love this color. This color is that perfect bright tropical ocean blue-green that makes you wish you were snorkeling on a coral reef or laying on the beach. Did I tell you my parents in Jamaica right now? Yes, I'm a little envious!

I love this color. This polish I found to be pigmented and the formula was nice. The brush, however, did not make application easy for me. I've had this problem with L'Oreal brushes in the past, but it hasn't stopped me from purchasing them. The brushes are wider and have a lot of bristles. When I apply the polish to my nail, the brush wants to go wider than my nail, so I don't always get the most even application. L'Oreal has been releasing some great polishes lately, so I'm ok with the extra fuss. If you're not a fan of a wider brush, you may have some issues with this one.

Happy Thursday! Pin It

  1. I like this one but did not bring it home when I saw this collection - I am trying sooo hard now not to put new polishes in my collection when I have something really close. I also find L'Oreal brushes can be woky at times - I always open the bottles to check to see if there are stray hairs on the brush. I like wider brushes however - but I really can use anything. I find a wider brush makes my mani go faster. If I am doing art, I use art brushes anyway.

  7. That polish is a beaut! As for gloomy days, my advice is to go to a nice green space, a park or garden. Even a nicely landscaped outdoor mall. When I am close to and observe nature it brings me up. Lots of good vibes! The sound of running water also brings me up. Now, I live in California; this might not work in the snow! Also try to think of winter as a time of renewal. Things must rest sometimes so they can put on a good show in their season. Appreciate the change in seasons as necessary and even welcome. Look at the fallen leaves and bare branches and try to understand the circle of life.

  14. Oh I have this one! I haven't had a chance to wear it yet, I'm still getting the last use out of some dark wintery colors while I can, but yeah I picked it up because it is so Spring-y and so pretty. I thought of a nest of Robin's eggs when I saw this pretty blue. It's such a happy color!

  15. I've had my eye on most of this Trendsetter collection for ages! They're just the kind of colors I love. I haven't had much luck searching for comparisons to other brands, though! Do you have any thoughts on whether these are fairly unique or if they compare to other polishes?
