Happy Lunar Thanksgiving! I hope you get to eat some rice cakes, dduk.


At the end of May 2014, I received tons of goodies from Generation Beauty.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Benefit They're Real! Mascara (middle), bareMinerals Lipstick in Make Your Move (bottom right), China Glaze in Neon & On & On (top middle), Josie Maran Model Citizen Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter (bottom left), and Laneige BB Cushion (left). For this post, I will review one of the two L.A. Girl nail polishes on the right.
Product Review: L.A. Girl ColorPop Rebel in #GNL812 Lovely

Where to purchase: online at lagirlusa.com
Price: $5 for 0.47 fl oz/ 14mL

Made in China

Description from the website: Add a pop of color to your style with bold shades that delivers rich coverage and intense shine. This collection of trend-based colors, themed to compliment your mood and style.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: I own quite a few L.A. Girl nail polishes but for some reason I have not tried them. I'm not too sure why. So when I saw this in my goody bag, I knew it'll be a great color for the summer. For that reason, I decided to try it out.
Here's a closer look and it's very true to color!
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to OPI (this is the perfect medium width), I would say L.A. Girl is in-between thin to medium thickness.
I applied Orly Calcium Shield Basecoat, 2 coats of L.A. Girl in Lovely, and then topped it off with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I found the brush interesting. It thins on the top and it gets wider. Since it's wider on the bottom, it made it easy to paint my nails. Secondly, the consistency is more on the medium. It's not too thick where it gets lumpy and too thin it runs. It's my perfect consistency. With that said, it went on smoothly. There was no streaking and bubbles. Third, the color is gorgeous and I can see it look great on every skin tones. Lastly, the lasting power was 4 days before it started chipping. It's not those tiny chips but big ones.

Pros:
* Comes in a variety of colors.
* Medium consistency; not too thick or thin.
* Easy to apply.
* No streaking.
* No bubbles.
* Cruelty free.
* Lasting power is 4 days.

Cons:
* Can be hard to find in stores.
* Big chunks of polish falls off.

Would repurchase: Maybe, I need to test my other L.A. Girl polishes.

Thank you! Are you back in LA or still in Mexico?

Ahleessa said...

Thank you!

Thank you! I'm impressed with a $1.99 nail polish. I think it's better than a lot of higher brand polishes.
