L.A. Girl: Turntable (Disco Brites)

Hello there everybody! Today I want to share a nail polish I bought several years ago at some random beauty supply store. This is L.A. Girl's Turntable, which is part of their Disco Brites collection. The premise behind that collection is that the colors glow under a black light. Well, it's not 1998, and I don't have a black light handy so I cannot tell you if that is the case, but what I can tell you is that this polish rocks, and so do the other polishes I have tried from the collection. 

Turntable is a bright turquoise creme with a super high shine finish, that's what I love about this polish, the finish is just perfect. I used two coats for full opacity and even though my bottle is several years old and well loved, this thing went on like butter. Just lovely. 

I have found L.A. Girl polishes at several no name beauty supply stores in my area. You can also purchase them online (for like $4) from places like cherryculture.com. I am a big fan of this line, for the price the quality is just perfect. 

What L.A. Girl polishes have you tried? Any recommendations on ones I need in my life?

P.S. now I have the sudden urge to take a walk down memory lane, head to Spencer Gifts, and purchase a black light. LOL ;-)

Azature: Light Gray

Hello beauties. Ever fantasized about a nail polish full of diamonds? Well Azature is a brand known for creating a nail polish full of black diamonds, a $250,000.00 nail polish. Crazy extravagant. They've now launched a line of polishes, sans price tag, containing a single black diamond in each bottle. I had the chance to sample two colors and today I am going to show you Light Gray from the line. You can read more about the brand on their Facebook page.

Light Gray is exactly what the name implies. It's a light gray creme with no shimmer particles. I am a sucker for these shades and this one is very pretty.  This is a really pretty polish but nothing unique in the color area.  My swatch photos are not really up to snuff, so I apologize, IDK what the problem is with my camera lately.

Formula on this is rich and pigmented. It's nearly opaque in just one coat, but I did two for good measure. 

This is a solid offering from the brand but at $25.00 a bottle it's certainly no friend to my wallet. I would consider shelling out the $25.00 for a truly unique color but for the everyday colors it's a little high for me. I guess they justify the price by telling you there's a real black diamond inside, and I am sure it's there but what good is it doing me in there? I would like to see it though. Someday when I finish the bottle I guess. LOL. 

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was low key and I got to spend a lot of time with my hubby so I can't complain. This coming weekend we have a wedding and a Christening *twins*, so we should be super busy. Can't wait! Hope the weather cooperates. It's cooling down here, which is nice, as long as it's not too cold!

OPI Liquid Sand: Alcatraz...Rocks

I will admit that while I am a fan of the textured matte trend (Liquid Sand, Pixie Dust etc.) I am starting to get slightly annoyed with the sheer amount of polishes coming out with that finish. Calm down, stop shoving it down our throats. I have to say though, this one is a masterpiece...

Ladies and gentleman  I present to you: Alcatraz...Rocks from the OPI San Francisco Collection.  What a stunner! I am not sure it gets more beautiful than the royal purple packed with tons of holographic particles. I cannot even describe this beauty!

I knew right when I took this out of the box it came in that I was going to love it. What's not to love? Purple, check! Holo, check! It's an all around beautiful and unique offering from OPI. 

This is a Liquid Sand finish, which is a textured matte. I find these to go on very easily and dry quickly without the assistance of a top coat. A shiny topcoat will change the finish of these so avoid it unless you want to make it shiny. I used two coats for opacity here and it's perfect! 

So am I getting slightly bored with this type of finish? Yup! But I do love this polish and get so excited when something truly unique finds its way to my collection. I think you all need this color, especially if you're a purple lover like me!
