L. A. Colors, Color Craze ~ Voodoo


L. A. Colors, Color Craze ~ Voodoo
Dark green with shimmer

with

Revlon ~ Star
Clear base with multisized silver


Sometimes a polish looks better in the bottle than it does on the nails. I hate it when that happens! With L. A. Color’s Voodoo it’s the other way around: It looks alright in the bottle, but absolutely great on the nails.

Voodoo has a great formula, the polish glided on easily, leaving no streaks or bald spots. It could have been a one coater, had I been more careful with the application. But; I gave it two coats, to be sure that everything was evened out, so to speak.

No top coat yet:


Isn’t it just beautiful? I love the colour and the shimmer in it.

I should have left it like that, but I didn’t. No, I absolutely had to add a new glitter I bought the other day – a Revlon called “Belle”. It’s a silver glitter in various sizes, but in a clear base.

After one coat of that, I had a feeling that I had made a mistake. So I applied a second coat to see if it helped. It didn’t. <sigh> I don’t think I’ve ever said this before, but the glitter was a mistake. It didn’t at all give the bling effect that I was after. It only dulled the original polish.

Here is the finished mani with one coat of no name top coat:



What do you think? Was the glitter a mistake or not?

Opacity: 9/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 9/10
Value for money: 9/10

  1. Hmm, I see what you mean about the glitter dulling the green but I still like it!

    1. It was OK, just not as cool as expected. I'll try and stamp on it next time. :)

  2. I still like it with the glitter but the green was definitely a star all by itself! =)

    I wanted to offer... I don't make it over to that Icing store very often but next time I'm there, I could pick up some of those glitters I posted the other day for you. If you wanted to do a swap at some point?
