Today I present to you something very interesting that I spotted on the International blogsphere – L’Oreal Color Riche Nails a Porter. What are these? – They are a set of false nails. What is so exciting about them? – Well for a start they are supposed to be soft and flexible thus bending easily with the actual nail so that they don’t feel alien. They are supposed to have a rubbery feel to them.

Before I mention the most exciting thing that I found about them let me take you into a little flashback of sorts. I first remember encountering false nails somewhere in the early nineties where you would get them in a set of white slightly translucent color. Packed in a transparent plastic these came with a small glue tube and were all the rage back then. But they were quite stiff and would pop off due to the slightest pressure. You just had to drape your hands and sit tight and not do anything.

Flash forward to a couple months back. Having grown tired of false nails long back especially coz of their staying power I was so totally over them. But in the quest of blogging and finding new things I came across them once again and this time it was from Faces. Black with gold metallic tips caught my fancy and I fell hook-line and sinker for it. Applied them and they felt sturdy…..translation lasted 10 mins of work which in my case meant typing on the keyboard. Out it popped and with a sigh I tried to remove the others and honestly had a tough time with it. After literally yanking them off I almost screamed when I saw my nail. The glue had ruined it and it looked how your skin looks if you get some Fevikwik on it! That is a horror story for another time but thankfully they sorted themselves out after couple of days (I think there might have been a mani involved).

So when I saw what was provided with these new ones it was like heaven sent! As you can see in the pic above they have given soft gel pads which help the nails to adhere. Is that not a fab idea?!? L’Oreal claims that they will last for about 5 days. But whatever it is I find this a really great idea. Though I’m left wondering how long they will last on someone but the entire concept that they have introduced of the experience being comfortable is like….like….a pair of glamorous heels with a padded comfy sole to it!

There are about 8 different designs in it and a set of 12 nails costs around 7.99 pounds (approx Rs. 753/-) which I feel is decent. Would you be interested in getting these? I know I would like to see them make it to our shores and would be picking one set in it at least. Loving the concept behind them! How about you?
