Review: 99p LA Colors Nail Polish

Good evening ladies, I hope you're all having a fab week =]

Today I wanted to blog about something I'm very excited about!

Last weekend I visited the new Westfields in Stratford, that place is amazing! I spent all day walking around, I must have walked about 5 miles and my feet were me killing after. Just as me and my friend were getting ready to leave we spotted a shop called Beauty Base and I just had to check it out.

Amongst bargain perfume and make up there was a whole section dedicated to LA Colors nail varnish, from a distance I thought it was OPI! There were well over 100 shades to choose from and I chose to try these 3 out as I didn't want to buy too many incase they were rubbish. Here are the ones I chose... 

Red Carnation, Top Coat & Mauve Gauze.

I literally could have picked up at least 10 shades and I'm sorely regretting not doing so!

Red Carnation & Mauve Gauze.

.As you can see both shades are gorgeous. They were both opaque within 2 coats and applied like a dream.

The top coat dries really quickly, leaving the nails smudge proof and shiny within a few minutes.

I think the packaging looks expensive, it's basically the same as OPI at a fraction of the price. I also love the brush, it's wide and makes applying the polish fool proof.

Can you tell I love this nail polish?!?

The best thing about this product has to be the price.... every shade including base & top coats are only 99p each! Bargain of the year? I think so!

Product: 9/10
Packaging: 9/10
Price: 10/10
Overall :9/10

I'm going back to Westfields in a few weeks as some of the shops including Mac were still being built (I was  gutted about this) & I cannot wait to pick up a load more of this nail polish!

Have you tried LA Colors nail polish before and if so what did you think?

  15. omg I have these nail polishes too and they're super gorgeous! I bought them from the beauty base in westfield white city more than a year ago when they were clearing them out! I got two reds, a mint green and the blackest black one could ever ask for in the form of nail polish! Unfortunately they don't have them at the white beauty base anymore so I'll be sure to look out for them next time I go to the stratford one! x

  16. I love this pink/nude color!

  17. I've seen LA colours but I thought you could only get them in america. Would love to try them and they have nail art pens I want to try too. Love the nude shade! x
