Starting June 2014, L'Oréal is bringing its beloved Collection Privée back in stores. Now named the Exclusive Nudes, the line features six shades of nude lipsticks and six shades of nude polishes ($6.99 each), all inspired and named after iconic celebrities. Today I have four polishes from the collection to share with y'all, so to see some swatches and my review, click......

L'Oreal Exclusive Nude Polishes in Liya, Doutzen, Julianne, and Eva.
Liya's Nude (from Liya Kebede):
This one is a rich taupe-y gray cream with a very opaque formulation. Although the formulation is opaque, I still had some trouble with streaking and had to use three coats on a couple of fingers.
This color isn't a conventional "nude" but it is still very classy and neutral, perfect for gals with darker skin.

Two to three coats, no top coat.
Eva's Nude (from Eva Longoria):
This polish is a very light sandy beige with subtle shimmers. The formulation was a bit sheer so I had to use three coats. The color, though, is quite a match for my skin tone (in person at least, not so much in the swatches). Can I re-name this Jasmine's Nude?

Julianne's Nude (from Julianne Moore):
A soft, dusty brick red, Julianne's nude is another very unique take on the nude polish. The formulation for this one is very opaque and smooth, two coats for complete opacity.

Doutzen's Nude (from Doutzen Kroes):
This one is a soft mauve-y nude cream with a surprisingly opaque formulation. Two even coats are enough to achieve opacity and the color dried very quickly.

The collection includes two additional polishes, inspired by J Lo and Freida Pinto. Overall, I am quite impressed by the formulation of all four polishes I swatched. Nudes tend to be very sheer and require up to four coats for opacity. Most of these only required two and the finishes were nice and shiny.

Availability:
