LA Colors Color Craze Morning Glory Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 4 - 2013

I do love a cheap n’ cheerful polish pick-me-up. No guilty spend and the sense of satisfaction that you got something purdy for a few pennies… in this case, I think it was about 99 pennies.

Here’s a little something I dug out from the bottom of my stash, I think I bought it a couple of years ago on a trip to Beauty Base in Whiteleys at Queensway.  I still have a couple more LA Colors shades that I haven’t blog-swatched.  That’s the technical term for “worn” dontchano?

LA Colors Craze Nail Polish 468 Morning Glory

Morning Glory is a blue-toned purple with a strong electric-blue micro shimmer running through the base colour.  It has a fairly watery consistency, the kind you think will never reach full opacity… when all of a sudden, it does.  In this case, it took three coats to achieve the coverage you see above.  I didn’t think we were gonna make it after two but it came good in the end!

I’m not sure if this is still available to buy in-store but I’m pretty sure you’d be able to pick a bottle up from eBay for next to nothing…

What was your last inexpensive beauty find?

    That’s such a lovely colour! LA Colors do quite nice eyeshadows too. My recent cheap and cheerful buy was Eyelure false lashes at Poundland (nice ones, too!), which unsurprisingly cost me £1…who needs Boots?? xx

    Pur-tay! I always was a sucker for a nice purple.

    I love LA Colors polishes! I always keep an eye out for them as I can’t believe how good they are for 99p :)

    I bought this last year so it’s probably still in stock!
