Laqa & Co Nail Polish Pen in Incestuous

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 13 - 2012

Su requested a swatch of the Laqa & Co Nail Polish Pen that I talked about yesterday, and I jumped at the chance of a quick and easy post so I could get to bed early (and carry on decorating bright and early tomorrow), forgive me for repeating myself!

Incestuous is one of those muted lavender shades that suit my skintone really nicely.  I know that some tones, especially olive skintones can struggle with muted purples which can sometimes make fingers appear lifeless but Incestuous (hate that name) offers enough saturation, I think, to avoid this phenomenon.

Application was basically pretty fun.  Except for the part when I realised that I would, in essence, be painting my nails with the wrong hand – with a pen.  Any ambidextrous readers out there?  Lucky.  I got my fingers in a proper muddle, made only more difficult by the fact that my nails on that hand were wet!  All in all though, the results were really good – the above image shows two coats (three on two of the fingers that I messed up).  Judging by the little window in the pen, it doesn’t seem to have consumed too much polish, but considering the pen only holds 5ml (the same as a Mavala) and costs £10.95 – this certainly isn’t the most economical way to paint your nails.

Having said that, it’s great for holidays and showing off your beauty gadgetry to anyone who gives a shit.  Which, let’s face it… is probably no-one.  You should probably just get this to amuse yourself/give as a present (the box and artwork is way cool/or for your holiday manicures.

Laqa & Co Nail Polish Pen in Incestuous is priced at £10.95 and available online from PowderRooms.

    Nice!!
    Looks great with your skin colour which is not too dissimilar to my own.

    Try Parlez Vous Opi if you can get your mitts on it. It’s gorgeouso 🙂

    I’m guessing they were thinking of incestuous meaning being so close or intimate as to prevent proper functioning rather than anything to do with actual incest. I hope so anyway, it’s still a crap name. Thanks to dictionary.com for the meaning 🙂

    Lovely colour but…that name…why?!

  5. It’s a lovely colour.

    I’d imagine using it for a french manicure might be easier for a beginner to just swipe on, perhaps

    Love the review and swatch Charlotte, the polish looks fab thanks!

    Have to agree with you all about the name though, it’s a bit odd but when a polish is that nice, we can overlook it xx

    That colour is beautiful and I love the idea of having nail varnish in a pen form. Might have to give that one a try out at some point soon.

  8. LOL-ed at ‘showing off your beauty gadgetry to anyone who gives a shit’! You’re funny! XD
