L. A. Girl ~ Deep Sea Mica and Nostalgic

L. A. Girl Metallic ~ Deep Sea Mica
Dark metallic teal

and

L. A. Girl Glitter Addict ~ Nostalgic
Two sizes light teal glitter in a clear base


I’ve only just discovered L. A. Girls, but I am already in love. When I saw this deep sea-green metallic teal, I just knew I had to have it.

The formula is good. It took two easy coats to reach desired opacity. No streaks or bald spots, just smoothly applied polish. I actually bought this polish with stamping in mind, but I don’t think it’s pigmented enough to be a stamping polish. Never mind.

Here’s two coats – no top coat:


Isn’t it just pretty? Look at that shine!!

I wanted it to meet a close friend, a L. A. Girls Glitter Addict called Nostalgic. I thought those two would fit each other quite nicely.

Application of Nostalgic was very easy. The glitter spread out evenly without any problems whatsoever.

Here’s one layer of glitter over the Deep Sea Mica. Still no top coat:


I actually didn’t get to put a top coat on it before I dented 3 of the nails badly, so this mani didn’t last very long at all. :| Too bad! But I’ll definitely do this combo again. I think it’s pretty. What do you think?

    1. I think so too. It reminds me a bit of bubbles under water. :)

    1. Haha, you're so mean to glitter! :D
      I just hate it when I dent something before it's even finished. I'm clumsy in that respect! :/
